  1. I run both springs right out the box all the time, no issues...
  2. I shoot range brass, but I go through it 100% to make sure it's not stepped brass, I have blown a few of those apart and it's not fun taking the ring out of the chamber. I don't check "headstamps" I just look at all my brass (inside) under a bright light and discard any of that stepped crap. I typically find 3 or 4 out of every 500 pieces. Also, I don't mark the brass, just shoot and release, I only pick up brass from practice session, typically I come back with more than I shoot...lol
  3. Same here, my CK Thunder is about a year and a half old. Im loading either Montana Gold or Precision Delta JHP at 1.160, very accurate, no issues. The HARD plated Extreme RN are just not accurate, it's not worth the $5~$8 savings in price per thousand. As for powders, I use SIL, AutoComp, HS-6 and 3n37 in order of preference. Haven't tried the CFE Pistol yet because I have tons of the others, and they seem to work great for me as well as other 9major guys.
  4. I saw as many MPX's as AR platforms at the Area2 Desert classic this month, and I saw or heard of no reliability issues with the MPX's although all of the folks we spoke to were running Gen2 guns with Gen2 mags. My buddy shoots an MPX Gen2 with Gen2 mags, he runs whatever factory stuff he can buy cheaply and has never had a malfunction @1k plus rounds in matches. I just purchased a used MPX Gen2 (the previous owner was having issues trying to run Gen1 mags) and have had zero issues, again using Gen2 mags. Im loading 147 and 125 gr round nose at around 150~155 power factor, 400 rounds only so far, but no issues, using 3n37 with no port modding.
  5. Very light and clean looking setup for your MPX, have you weight it? I'm curious....
  6. Well done Mr.Walker, well done!
  7. Does anyone know where to get the magazine pouch he's wearing in there video?
  8. Silhouette is a very good 9major powder, but I'm curious why you prefer the 3n37? I have also used WAC, HS-6 and of all these the 3n37 is my least favorite due to the amount of powder spillage I get. Although it's very accurate I don't see a major improvement over the other three powders to justify the cost and hassle while loading.
  9. I have been shooting open 9major in a 2011 platform for just over 2 years now, and have always used 124/125 grain bullets. I have been contemplating going to 115 grain bullets to see if the extra gas can get me flatter. What did you dislike about the 115’s that made you think they were horrible? Do you have holes?
  10. I have 2 guns, the CK has 3 holes the other is a V6, the load data was taken from the CK arms.
  11. Another thing to remember is to micromanage all the time spend when not shooting, learn how to effectively and efficiently "cut corners" on stages. Watch what the better shooters do, where to reload, what order to shoot a particular array and how to get into and out of shooting positions smoothly and quickly. Think of it like car racing, every small detail adds up to seconds, and a few seconds saved on each stage adds up to a successful match.
  12. They called me today, I had an order in since March, but unfortunately circumstances will prevent me from taking it at this time.
