Excellent article shooterdude
…I came across that very article while trying to decide which firearm to carry as my primary conceal carry weapon. I chose the 9mm, 2075 BD RAMI over the sub-compacts available in Glock, Springfield, Smith & Wesson, Kahr, Taurus, Walther, H&K and Sig. I do a lot of research before I spend my wife’s hard earned money and just happened on to the CZ-Ceska website where I found the BD RAMI. Lucky for me since it is not listed on the CZ-USA website.CZ-Ceska
This pistol was exactly what I was looking for.
Anyway, the great debate after choosing 9mm is which bullet to reload. I haven’t had a single FTF or FTE with anything that’s been feed through my RAMI. That includes mixing up different brands and weights in the same magazine.
Continuing my research after the original post on this thread, I have decided to reload 124gr bullets. Not so much for reliability issues but because the 1:9.7 twist rate on the barrel is more suited for that weight.
After more research, and price comparisons, I chose the Remington 124gr, Golden Saber HP’s for my practice and defensive cartridge. I believe in practicing with what you carry.
There’s another thread I started about the Remington bullets…more research. Once I get some loads worked up and tested, I’ll post the results on the other thread.
I figure the gun to be broken in now and it has always been 100% reliable. I chose wisely but hope I never have to use it for its intended purpose.
…my view on defensive as to range bullets is, they should be the same. The last thing I would want to have to think about during a stressful situation is point of impact and felt recoil. But as ReloaderFred

…I’m happy for you and am sure she loves you too. Especially when your thread talks about over all length, things being seated deeper and bulging at the base. lol96Skyline
….I think you just confirmed what the article mentioned on the original post said…CZ makes quality firearms. I’m sure everyone in this entire forum concurs!rfwobbly1
…Great information. I will keep things in mind as I develop my loads. BTW what does IMHO mean? This is the first forum I’ve ever joined.
Thanks for the input everyone, this is pretty cool!
