  1. CZ scope mount options

    I have two Springer precision mounts on two different CZ P-09's (one in .40 the other 9mm), and while they don't fit the dovetail real snug, they work perfectly. They use two set screws to hold them place with a dab of Loctite. I was a little skeptical at first but after two years, probably over 20k rounds through both guns, and the last year shooting 9 major PF rounds in USPSA out of one, they have never lost zero or come loose in any way, and I have not been gentile at all with them. The top of my FF3 looks like I have driven nails with it. I would not hesitate to use one again. If you check out the CZ forum there are a lot of guys using the Springer mounts and I don't recall anyone having issues with one.
  2. I got an auto drum as soon as they became available, even signed up on the titan website so I would be one of the first to order one. Really enjoy it, cant imagine I would use any other measure no matter the press I was using. Is it the highest quality measure out there, of course not. But the ease of use, setup, adjustment, and consistent throws no matter the powder I'm using, it will be hard to replace it with anything currently on the market. I use mine on loadmaster presses but I do know of a few guys running them on 650's and are happy with them. I did have a one auto drum break on me though. It came on a used Loadmaster I bought used real cheap from a guy who did not take care of his stuff at all. The press was pretty jacked up with several broken and misadjusted parts anyway so I'm not totally sure it wasn't damaged before I got it, but the body of it broke where it screws into the die. Broke while flairing/charging a case and ended up popping the hopper off with a mostly full load of powder in it that spilled all over the loading bench.
  3. AA#7 - How dirty is it?

    AA#7 isn't terribly dirty in my gun but it does leave a few unburned powder granules in the barrel even at major PF. Has never slowed my gun down, but then again its a CZ and not finicky about being squeaky clean.
  4. The single most accurate round through my XDM 5.25 was a 124gr Precision Delta JHP over Accurate #2 powder, about 1.5" from a rest at 25 yds. Much like mentioned above I went through countless types of powder and projectiles searching for nirvana when I should have spent my time practicing. It was fun and entertaining along the way and I did learn much about different powders and projectiles so I guess it wasn't totally wasted time, but realistically at my experience level I should have been practicing with something, anything that worked well in the gun. Once the buzzer goes off you won't be able to tell any real difference in a minor load through a production gun anyway.
  5. VV310 Load Data with 165 gr 9mm

    Ive tried N310 under coated 147's, stupid soft but couldn't get accuracy worth a crap, looked more like a shot gun pattern than a group, this out of an XDM 5.25. Maybe I should load some more up and try them in my CZ's.
  6. P09 Question

    I have seen P-09's milled for a red dot and have the iron sights milled in front of the dot. Same effect, just looks funny. I believe the way the slide is designed it cant be milled deep enough in front of the rear sight dovetail to keep the rear irons in the traditional place. That being said, I have a FF3 in a dovetail mount, stock front sight is still on the gun but not in the way, and have no desire to co-witness.
  7. P09 trigger improvement

    My 9mm P09 has a Cajun race hammer, extended FP, 13lb hammer spring, and pops all primers reliably. I still load federals for matches but all practice ammo is loaded with mostly S&B primers, but Win, and CCI have been totally reliable too. This being said, I load on a Loadmaster and seat primers very deep with a slight pre-crush.
  8. XDm trigger

    Powder River Precision drop in kit, and use the competition springs. Fantastic trigger, easy to do yourself. Everyone that has ever shot my xdm has remarked how nice the trigger is.
  9. 9mm spinner load

    6.7gr of Accurate #7 under a 147gr coated lead bullet is an actual book load in the Accurate powder manual, they claim 1049 FPS, and out of my CZ P-09 averaged 1067 FPS. That should get that steel moving.
  10. 147gr 9mm n310 users.

    I experimented with 310 under a few different types of 147gr FP coated lead rounds. It shot very soft, was very consistent with low SD numbers, but didnt give good accuracy compared to other powders I used. Found a much better use for it in a different caliber.
  11. .355" or .356" 125 grn coated for your P-09 ?

    My P-09 slugged at .3555, I usually use .356 coated lead but have shot .357 coated lead as well, didnt see much difference in accuracy. I would definitely shoot at least .356. For whatever reason I cant get coated lead to shoot nearly as accurately as JHP's though.
  12. Titegroup and coated bullets

    I use 3.1gr titegroup under a 147gr coated lead bullet. OAL I use is 1.135. This is out of a XDM 5.25.
  13. CZ P-09 rear sight

    I don't think any one offers one, but if you do find one, please post up, I would love to have one.

    Suppose to be announced Thanksgiving day. If you have access to Instagram they put a teaser pic showing part of a slide, a couple 15rd mags, and a nicely textured grip that looks like it has some palm swell built into it. They mention it having fully ambi controls, superior ergonomics, and the same mag family as the P07/P09. Im looking forward to whatever it is.
  15. Rock Island Ultra FS 9mm for SS?

    3.1gr of titegroup (+/- .1gr for your specific pistol) gives me a very soft shooting and accurate load with 147gr coated lead Bullets.
