Anything with a brass casing should work reliably. As far as steel or Nickel casings I hear they work ok just not as consistent as the brass.


I don't have a carbine either but I do have a c9. I broke it in with brass WWB and have since moved to use the Blazer aluminum with excellent results. At least with the aluminum I don't have to crawl around on my hands and knees looking to police my brass. That may change as soon as I buy a reloading machine though. I can feel my knees aching already. I'm gonna have to fashion a brass catcher for my pistol. Something I can nail to my upper arm :thinkin: :thinkin: :hmmm: :hmmm: :hmmm:


Actually Randy. I "borrowed" one of my brother's small fishing nets and when I go to the range, I just stand it up beside me to catch almost all the brass. I just figured that out in the last few weeks. I've seen people with rifles have a net on the ejector to catch it too.
Just my :opinion:

I just give my lady a fishing net and have her catch the brass as it flies out of the extractor. She is getting pretty good at it.
I am going to teach her how to catch Lighting Bugs tonight.

I made a shell catcher for my TS out of aluminum screen, Plasti-Dip, nylon strap, and velcro. It works perfectly, but I have to remove it to empty it.

I've used plastic shopping bags from the grocery store as a brass catcher on my 4095. I loop one "handle" over the scope and loop the other over the little finger on my shooting hand.

It's not 100% effective, but it's cheap and I've got a ton of those bags around the house.

Plastic shopping bags! Awesome idea! Just be classy about it and use bags from bass pro or something no dollar store bags or Walmart that's just tacky.

for the range I use Remington UMC (180 gr.), in the big 250 box when I can find them. It seems to like Blazer brass also, but I only get that if I can't find the Rem.

for the home I keep plain Jane Remington JHP 180 gr.

There is no .40 s&W that my carbine has failed to digest.
