I haven't tried reloads in the CZ yet. I like that CZ75 better than i do my Beretta 92. When i had a VZ 58,
there were story's about how the Warsaw Pact counties liked it better than the AK. In the movie full metal jacket, it was what that female sniper was useing. Mine was dead on accurate like that.

I also got no leading in either pistol. I use carnauba red from White label lubes for all of my cast bullets. Rifles and handguns.

I haven't fired it in a while, so when my friend from Florida came up for the weekend I took it to the range. My recoil spring on my Ruger broke, but the loads that I had for the CZ all grouped like they were supposed to. Not a bobble. My buddy had a Ruger .38 Spl. and I had plenty of handloads to shoot as I don't have a .38/ .357 anymore. Neither of us nor my wife could hit anything when we started, but I adjusted the sights with his permission and it got a lot better.
My buddy is a little guy about 5 feet or so. He wanted to shoot my SRH in .44 mag. He fired 3 shots and handed it back to me.

I got a new Lee 358-125 RF mold and cast some bullets for my 9's I sized and lubed them to .357 and loaded a few to see how they fit. Both of my pistols fed them without a hitch, but I haven't had a chance to fire them yet. I didn't even have to adjust my seating die!
