  1. Shadow 2 load VV N320

    135 gr Bayou RN 1.11 oal 3.47 gr N320
  2. Shadow 2 mag over insertion

    MecGar 17s and Springer pads fit the box with Shadow 2 no problem. I confirmed with the box last week.
  3. Shadow 2 Legal Date

    As of 5/10/17 CZ USA says they have not received 2,000 to date.
  4. 38 special for revo

    158 SWC from Bayou 3.6 grains Titegroup Medium roll crimp Makes high 700s fps, about 120 PF. Very soft and accurate. I've had no trouble knocking down poppers at an outlaw steel match despite the low PF.
  5. Shadow 2 Legal Date

    No, I'm doing it too. I shot Lim10 last night and it felt gross.
  6. Anyone loading Bayou Bullets in 38 Spl?

    I've loaded thousands of 158 SWCs from Bayou. I use a medium to light roll crimp with no coating scraping. I found that I got better accuracy with a roll crimp vs taper.
  7. My Shadow 2 modifications

    Hand loads. Fed primers.
  8. My Shadow 2 modifications

    No, the inside part that falls into the catch on the magazine.
  9. My Shadow 2 modifications

    8.5 CGW hammer spring / 11 CGW recoil spring / CGW TRS / CGW ultralight kit. With the help of a friend, a little grinding on the mag catch. My next modification will be a few cases of Bayous. This gun is a pleasure to shoot.
  10. Shadow 2 vs Tanfo Stock 3?

    LOK palm swells for the old timey SP01 were an easy fix.
  11. Reloading

    ^^ you forgot to amortize the cost of the 1050. 20k rounds to break even (vs 115 Tula) But yes, cost isn't the driving factor for most of us. Availability and better quality ammo is the ticket.
  12. .245 works for me with 147s. Confirmed yesterday. What is the height of your current set-up?
  13. H110 was an absolute mess until I switched from the small to large powder bar. Appears reasonably accurate now and with significantly less spillage. Titegroup and Bullseye are the other powders I use. They meter very well.
  14. 357 Magnum powders

    Same. Just got back from chrono. 16.6 H110 under 158 XTP gave 1200 but 16.2 grouped and "felt" better. Blue Dot meter alright? H110 was a mess in the Dillon.
  15. Mixing Powder..?

    This. Back when I bought 1 pounders id mix the last of one bottle with the next bottle. I chrono'd after each new bottle and not experienced any deviation at the chrono.
