  1. Club bans FMJ in SC Matches

    It seems like this is a big enough problem that USPSA or whoever should commission a study and issue a best practice notice or something. The club was in Norcal? Which match?
  2. I was kind of talking to Alaska. He has a retired work mate/friend who chose a 357 Sig after he tested it on a bear cadaver. IIRC.
  3. best 22 rimfire scope for precision rifle trainer

    We use to run .22 LR precision tactical rifle matches around here. Most of those guys including me would say that a side "focus" that will go down all the way to 25 yards is super important. Personally have a Burris Tactical ~$900 and a "cheap" $400-$500 British scope. Both can focus fairly close. Both are FFP. When I say focus technically it's the parallax knob.
  4. Tablet for Practiscore?

    I got a new Fire 7. This one and the previous Fire 8 I got are initially set up for my Amazon account. After DL Practiscore and maybe an app or two what's the best way to make it not be able to buy stuff anymore from Amazon through this particular tablet? Was it just a better idea to just not do the initial set-up under the account that the fire was bought under? Basically if I loose this thing at the range I don't want anybody to buy crap with it using my account.
  5. 7.62x39 Bullets?

    Have shot 308 Xtremes out of a 700 bolt gun using Trailboss. Decent groups at 25 yards. But couldn't consistently hit an IPSC sized paper at 100 yards for some reason. So personally I'm going to look at plated at the very last resort. Have a couple of boxes of the 123 Hornady SP's and SST's and .308 110 gr M1 Carbine bullets from Armscor and Magtech. Have pulled out the heads and put them on some factory 7.62x39 of Russian make. Just waiting for some time when I can go and see what they do on paper.
  6. WW2 vet gets to see his Spit crash...

    Interesting. The Mustang was supposed to be a game changer because it was the first fighter that could go all the way to Berlin while escorting Allied bombers. Wonder why and how this guy's Spitfire could go all the way to Berlin. Did it save that much weight being unarmed that it could go all the way and back?
  7. Tablet for Practiscore?

    I got a Fire HD 8 a couple of days ago. Played Candy Crush, read a couple of books, installed Practi Score, etc. Didn't actually use it outside. Was watching a video that was delivered for some reason by Amazon to the tablet. While watching it it died. No power. Tried plugging it in with the supplied charger and it still doesn't work. Oh well. Anyways I think the HD 8 is a little wide for my hands to be used in the field comfortably. I was going to wait until these Black Friday sales, but I'm going to go ahead and order a Fire 7 and return the HD 8 for repair/replacement.
  8. Smooth Expander/Flare die Set Ups?

    Anybody use a Lyman M die for pistol? Did you happen to notice it being smoother than the lee charging dies during case extraction? M die good for a progressive press for pistol applications?
  9. Smooth Expander/Flare die Set Ups?

    I flare and charge with a Lee powder die. I was loading some rounds using new brass and I noticed that the flaring charging die really sticks noticeably. It enters smoothly but when I pull out the brass it requires notable abrupt force. What do you guys do to tune this out? Do you use a different die brand that doesn't have this problem? Do you flare at a different station and not at the charge station? Thanks.
  10. Tablet for Practiscore?

    Looking for an affordable tablet good of Practiscore use. To be used outdoors. Screen hopefully won't be too glary in sun. Doesn't overheat too easily. Somewhat tough enough to be carried in a range bag. Good battery life. Reliable. Durable. No problems with synching. Etc. What would you guys recommend? What models have you guys used and how did it go? Thanks. (Note: Wasn't getting relevant hits on this sub forum when I searched. So sorry to the search Nazis if there are already a bunch of threads on this)
  11. California after 7/1 10 round divisions

    So the advantage is to the club? They get an extra $3 for when they have to reshoot the classifier to get an L10 classifier? Shooters won't be able to shoot in L10 to begin with?
  12. Setting Up AK47 for Match Use

    OK I read the rules in more detail. https://southernutahpracticalshootingrange.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/02/ROKRules.pdf They don't consider the target neutralized with just one A, A/B or head shot? Do we start with the safety on? Or do we start with the safety off? Thanks.
  13. California after 7/1 10 round divisions

    I'm not seeing the advantage or the point of getting rid of L10. Keep both and let the shooter decide what division they want their classifier to count in. If you get rid of L10 that means they can't get a classification in L10. They can only get classified in Limited.
  14. California after 7/1 10 round divisions

    Well then there you go. 5 Dogs will be all ten round.
