To find out, which Geco load would be the best for IPSC Revolver competitions, I tested all available Geco loads. I chronoed them first and shot them second off hand to see, which load shoots subjective best by recoil and precision. Results first – the 139grs Sintox load shot the best groups and felt very comfortable. This will be my load! Also nicely to shoot was the new Hexagon. But due to the hollow point, reloads are not so good as with the 139grs RN bullet. Also precise was the 115grs RN. But very hard and snappy to shoot.
The chrono-results in detail
Additional to the factory loads, I’ve also tried a first handload: the 139grs Geco RN bullet, 4,5grs Reload Swiss RS20 and Federal 100. OAL 29,5mm. Unfortunately, the load was a little bit to weak and I need to add some more powder. But the precision was already very promising!
