  1. My issue is a bit different in my sx3. When the mag tube is full at 9+4 rounds, at initial loading retracting the bolt, the shell will release to the carrier but the carrier will not lift the shell to chamber and the bolt will lock back. Depress the release button or push the carrier upwards and it will feed. But it wont jam during firing. With lesser rounds in the mag at initial loadings, its ok. Same spring issue?
  2. Several months with the sx3 and started reloading shotshells a month or so ago. Mine will run 7/8 #7-1/2 leadshots at about 1,100 fps all day long. Its with a +9 taccom tube, arredondo chute for 6 shot sticks. But the best part is its now very reliable across any load I feed it w/c by the way is a bit limited compared to those in US and Europe. And at its price point Im not dreaming for a 1301 or m2 anymore.
  3. Shot and finished the 5 stage 3g match with the 1oz 7-1/2 1,200fps load. Very pleased with its performance. The only problem was some did not feed reliably with my speedloader sticks. The culprit was the crimp was not as good as factory. It snagged on the mag tube mouth. Anyway its another topic. My go-to load as of now is this load. It may change in the days to come as I learn this game.
  4. I zero at 25y from a benchrest. However I put my hands in between the rest and the pistol so theres no direct contact between them. Also I dont put pressure on the rest. Just enough to make it stable. I assume my natural shooting grip placement and pressure on the pistol and adjust the rest so Im close or the same to my shooting posture, not haunched down, and not press down on my stomach so I can breath normally as in shooting freestyle.
  5. Counting shots tremendously slows me down. So I dont. Try it in bill drill.
  6. Agree but first the head must first be proven accurate prior. Had a mysterious (again) experience on this. Not so long ago my longtime everyday-match-practice loads suddenly went tumbling and innaccurate without me changing anything in the reloading bench. Checked and rechecked everything. Tried every loose crimp adjustment for days and weeks. To confound the issue, it happened in 2 of 3 guns. Pretty expensive to change barrel i thought. So finally tried heads from different source for a cheaper solution. The tumbling just went pfffft. It was much later that i learned the manufacturer changed the materials coating the bullet that must have caused my problem.
  7. What a gnarly closing remarks thank you
  8. Just for the mean time. When time permits, im gonna tinker that powder measure and see how it really happened. Just too busy now prepping for a big 18stage match this weekend. Solved the problem just in time. But it took a lot out of my training time.
  9. Yup. And the mystery solved. Its the damaged powder measure indeed. Thanks everyone.
  10. Now this is the game changer for me. Im gonna test the 1oz handload I picked in a local match this weekend and prove to myself it has enough power for the game at hand. Have an IC LM M chokes to work with. Then its practice practice practice!
  11. My bad. It should be 1,180 fps. Sorry for that.
  12. This ziira 7 powder leaves nasty stains in the brass that cant be removed by dry tumbling even with a tinge of liquid polish sprinkled on media. I dont do wet tumbling so I just let it be. Those are 2-3x fired brass thats tumbled for an hour+ for every usage. 3n37 3n38 donot have such stains. But muzzle flip-wise, ziira 7 has very noticeable edge over those vihta powders. We dont have other powders for open gun loads that i know of and that i can compare in my country. Eta. And 3n37 costs 77% more and 3n38 138% more than z7 here.
  13. Yes thank you
  14. With modern design materials, it shouldnt be. Cmore slideride and most micro dot frames are made of plastic. Also most eyeglass lenses are also plastic. Its not farfetched to wish for plastic frames that are transparent and sturdy for shooting.
  15. Wish somebody would make a frameless lens or a transparent frame so the dot would appear floating on air without any visual distraction.
