  1. The fault line/box is part of the shooting area...so yes.
  2. Stippling is OK...it's explicitly allowed in the rules: Appendix D4, section 21.4
  3. I would say "no". It's a modification that changes the external appearance of the gun, and is not explicitly stated as "allowed" in the rule book.
  4. Item #4. https://www.uspsa.org/bodminutes/20170228.pdf I'd tell them to practice more if they want to move up a class.
  5. A production GM running a stage with a couple wide transitions:
  6. was that an AD at 0:34?
  7. With the limited amount of details given, here are my tips: 1. go slow & safe at matches. There's a lot of information your brain is trying to process and trying to go faster than what you can process leads to problems. 2. LOTS of practice (dry & live) until safe gun handling is part of your nature.
  8. Are you thinking Safariland ELS? https://www.safariland.com/products/holsters-and-gear/holster-systems/mounting-systems/quick-attachment-systems/equipment-locking-system-kit-32184.html Disregard...my reading comprehension skills are lacking...
  9. Your personal summary hit the big points: 1. fix mechanical gun problems (hammer follow) 2. ride the top of the safety with strong hand thumb (so you don't accidentally bump it up/on) 3. more dry fire to "find your dot". I like Brian's Awareness Exercise in his Practical Shooting book (page 169) 4. execute your stage plan. I haven't found a "drill" for this...just comes with doing it and developing your visualization skills. The only other thing i noticed is you need to work on EXPLODING out of positions & run like hell to the next one. The biggest time savings you can get is reducing the "non-shooting time": drawing, reloading, exiting a position, moving to the next position, getting into next position, & transitioning between targets. Focus on making these things happen faster before worrying about shooting faster.
  10. +1 for Aero.
  11. Yep. Won one of these at match...best accessory on my 550B http://www.powdermirror.com/
  12. Sounds like magic... http://www.imrpowder.com/rifle.html http://www.hodgdonreloading.com/data/rifle I'll have to pick a pound up and try it out. =)
  13. Just_Me... There are a lot of variables in the reloading process that effect accuracy, and diagnosing over the internet is a crap shoot IMO. Based on your question & information provided i'm assuming you're fairly new to reloading. My advise is to find someone local that has been reloading for a while and have them review and diagnose your process. As for OAL varying, could be: 1. variation in bullet length (which i've seen in HP bullets), nothing to worry about. Measure to the Ogive instead of tip. 2. seating die loose / not set properly (not good) 3. case mouth not deburred after trimming (not good) 4. measuring device is faulty (not good) As for accuracy not being the same as Fed. GM....How did you determine 22.5gr of H335? Did you do a OCW or Ladder test?
  14. Practicality of rule enforcement. You can't really enforce "no internal mods" at matches (different springs, sear polishing, etc...) without spending a huge amount of time & training of staff, you can however enforce "no external mods" fairly easily. It may not be a perfect system, but it works well enough.
  15. Good to hear. I've been looking at getting the HMR in 6.5 to step-up from my Savage 10FP-SR in .223
