  1. He is shooting production with a hammer fired gun. He has to drop the hammer on the gun before starting. You can see his left hand lowering the hammer when he pulls the trigger.
  2. Either way, I would say it is worth it. If you ever plan to start reloading save all the brass you can. I am kicking myself because a year ago I thought I would never reload 223 as I didn't have a press I could do it on. A few months pass by and I got a good deal on a 650. Now I am kicking myself for selling 1500 pieces of 223 brass. If nothing else, as others have said, you can always sell it in the classifieds brass section, or send it in to a company that offers a credit program.
  3. I went to a local audiologist and got molded earplugs made. It cost 160 total out the door. They have a filter that deadens loud noises, but still allow you to hear normally otherwise. So far they have been fantastic. I was interested to see how they were going to work as they are not electronic, but I have no complaints.
  4. The range you shot at on 4/15 takes about 2 weeks to get the scores into USPSA. I would bet that the next update (Next Wednesday) will show your scores.
  5. Also, talking to squad mates is a good way to find out of other matches.
  6. You can also join StLouisShooters. The forum is not very active, but they have a match calendar with local matches on it. Helps you figure out what clubs have matches in the area.
  7. I pushed the par time down to .7 seconds tonight and practiced the reloads a little more. The second set of reloads are 25% of the original speed. It took the sound out of the clip, but couldn't get it back in.
  8. This is exactly right, it was something that was pointed out to me when I was shooting production as actually slowing down my reloads due to it being canted when the mag starts to come out instead of straight up and down. It is definitely not something that was helpful.
  9. I've used Acme coated 180, and moved to Black Bullets International. After about 1500 of them I am very happy with them, and will continue using BBIs.
  10. Thanks, I'm going to focus on working on my draw this week in dry fire. I will test out your suggestions in live fire next week. I was consistently at like 1.5-1.8 second first shots at 7-10 yards, and I know this is slower than it should be. I think the reload thing comes from when I was in Production I would try to assist the mag out. It is something that I never noticed until taking this video. I am going to try to fix that as well!
  11. Awesome! Thanks for the analysis. I see things I need to work on, but don't always know how to break them down. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G930A using Tapatalk
  12. I managed to barely scrape my way into B class (60.02%). That means there is a large amount of improvement that I need to make before being competitive. Took some videos of my practice session tonight. I had an epiphany tonight and was finally able to start shooting on a regular basis with both eyes open. This needs more practice, but is something that I have been trying to learn. Things I see I need to work on: 1. Grip - early on was not gripping enough, near the end started gripping tighter and saw better results. 2. Reloads - Fumbled 1 reload in this video bad. Other times I reload it alright, but am not very quick getting back on target. 3. Draw - My draws were consistent 1.5 - 1.8 to first shot. What else do you all see that is low hanging fruit?
  13. I recently watched a bunch of his videos. His movements are very explosive, and his splits on his PCC rifle are quick!
  14. I run 180 gr. BBI bullets. I am loading to 1.165" and using 4.65 gr of WST. This gives me 170-171 PF out of my 5" limited gun with a Nowlin Barrel.
  15. Agreed with above. I use the Redding GRx die (similar to the Lee die). The Dillon resizing die is not made to be used as a push thru. Best bet would be to do the following. Here are the steps I do with mine. Tumble Resize using GRx die (I don't use lube as I use a carbide die, so use lube if your Lee is not carbide) Then I load it on my 650 with the first station being the normal Dillon resizing die with the de-capping pin installed.
