  1. I've noticed the older S&B with the red around the primer are crimped and much harder to seat. I just picked up a crap load at my range and they were really easy to seat since they didn't have crimped primers.
  2. Legal in PCC?

    Did you do Individual or Gun trust? I heard the individual trusts are coming back much faster.
  3. I'm back to sorting my brass by head stamp. I find that I get a more consistent OAL with only one head stamp. I also ensure that I don't have any stepped brass or 380 brass mixed in with my 9mm brass. I only keep Win, R&P, PMC, FC, Speer, S&B & Blazer. All the rest go into a pile to trade or give away.
  4. 2/18/18 Dry fire Drills to complete this week: 1. The Hopkins a. Drill 1: Engage dots in the following order: 1, 6, 2, 5, 3, 4 (3.3 second par time) b. Drill 2: Engage dots in the following order: 6, 1, 5, 2, 4, 3 (3.3 Second Par Time) c. Drill 3: Engage dots in the following order: 6, 8, 3, 1 (1.9 Second Par Time) d. Drill 4: Engage dots in the following order: 1, 7, 4, 6 (1.9 Second Par Time) Initially I had the par time set at 4.8 seconds, I looked back at my noted and noticed that I was dropping the par time. I was consistently beating the time, so I dropped the time until it was just making the par time. I’m down to 3.3 seconds for both drill #1 and #2. Drill #3 & #4 are down to 1.9 seconds. I’m using 3” dots outside and 1” dots inside. 2. Box to Box Transitions (Utilize the shooting boxes to develop a rhythm for moving in Outer Limits) this drill is really getting better. I have determined that the best way for me to step is with my left foot pushing off with my right foot, then my second step is into the box. I kept the gun mounted and focused on a dot and pulled the trigger as soon as my second foot was in the box. 3. First shot acquisition (Using Hopkins Drill Dots) a. .70 Or faster from low ready to first shot on target. The .70 was a good starting time. I was making the shot from low ready. I decided to push the time and drop the par time to .50. Here’s a copy of the Hopkins Drill. I’m standing 15’ away. The .50 from low ready was a challenge to say the least. I did repetitions off of each dot. My thinking is…if I keep the par time at .50 in dry fire, in live fire it will probably be .7 so I’ll keep pushing myself to go faster while keeping proper form. From low ready, if I didn’t keep my eyes on the target, I had no chance of making the par time.
  5. PCC Dry fire Schedule for the week of 2/18/18 -2/24/18 Weekly area of focus: Steel Challenge match March 3rd. Focus will be static transitions on dots using the Hopkins drill. If the Steel challenge banners arrive this week, I’ll be utilizing them as well. Dry fire Drills to complete this week: 1. . The Hopkins a. Drill 1: Engage dots in the following order: 1, 6 , 2, 5, 3, 4 (4.8 Second Par Time) b. Drill 2: Engage dots in the following order: 6, 1, 5, 2, 4, 3 (4.8 Second Par Time) c. Drill 3: Engage dots in the following order: 6, 8, 3, 1 (2.8 Second Par Time) d. Drill 4: Engage dots in the following order: 1, 7, 4, 6 (2.8 Second Par Time) 2. Box to Box Transitions (Utilize the shooting boxes to develop a rhythm for moving in Outer Limits) 3. First shot acquisition a. .70 or faster from low ready to first shot on target.
  6. Prop Activation Method Question

    No rule against it. All I could find on the matter was this rule. 4.5.1 The competitor must not interfere with the range surface, natural foliage, constructions, props or other range equipment (including targets, target stands and target activators) at any time. Violations may incur one procedural penalty per occurrence at the discretion of the Range Officer.
  7. New bullets - How to develop new load?

    use that as a starting point. don't reduce anymore than you have to. 5% should be ok.
  8. Very good question. The answer is none! I want my gun back. I'm used to the weight, recoil, length and more importantly the feel of the gun.
  9. New bullets - How to develop new load?

    You have to test different OAL's to determine group size from each gun. Each chamber is different. Load up some rounds, shoot groups and see what you and the gun like.
  10. I'm 6'5" and weigh 215-220lbs and the gun weighs 7 lbs 13.1ounces to be exact. maybe you can tell my size by this video. shot with my gun. Ignore the hiccup when i thought the mag fell out.
  11. I totally agree with everything you said. Given time, I would adapt. Her gun weighs 5lbs10oz and mine is a hefty 7+ lbs.
  12. New bullets - How to develop new load?

    I load my 147gr rounds to 1.130. 1.185 for a 124gr is super long. Are you correct in that length?
  13. I agree somewhat with both of you to an extent. So today I shot an Action steel match with my daughter's PCC. (Mine is getting new ramped barrel) Her PCC is similar whereas we both have the same manufacturers lowers (hers is a billet and mine is a forged), we both have the same Taccom 3 stage buffer running the same springs, we both have C-more Railways with 6 moa dots, we both have Hiperfire 24C triggers running the same springs. She has the Taccom ULW barrel and carbon fiber handguard. I have the regular upper with 16" barrel and handguard. While I dry fire practiced with her gun all week, when I shot the action steel match today, her gun recoils entirely different than mine. her gun has a flip where my gun is more of a push. I was able to compete but my I just never got into a really good rhythm shooting the stages. I had mistakes that i strongly believe i wouldn't of had with my competition gun. Does the gun recoil hurt? Absolutely not but it was a significant change in what I was used to that it threw me off.
