  1. I have used frontier 121gr 9mm/.356 bullets for almost 6 years. I've shot a lot of them in that time. I have always had good luck with their 121gr bullets they are every bit as accurate for me as mg or zeroes.
  2. I've gotten to try a few scopes in the past couple of years. It took me a long time being on a small budget. I have found that the reticle makes a big difference. My preference is to a bdc style reticle or at least something that gives you more info than just crosshairs. Maybe something else to think about before making your purchase. With that said I have a viper pst 1-4. It's a great scope for the money. And you can't beat the warranty.
  3. How slow are you pushing 55gr bullets?

    I've been shooting 3gun "seriously" for the past couple of years. I honestly had no idea there was a pf for any of the guns. I always just assumed you needed enough to knock down the steel targets. If it's an issue it needs to be addressed better at the matches. Now with that said I have one load for my 69gr and use the same powder charge for my 55gr. It makes things easier for loading 223 and by my calculations I'm at about 151pf with the 55gr.
  4. I have noticed many shooters get "lost" in the stage when the buzzer goes off. I wonder if this is lack of stage planning or is the sense of urgency greater than the focus on the task at hand. What is the consensus, Lack of planning or loosing focus?
  5. In my experience having the stages setup the day before is the way to gain a lot of time. It's worth paying a little more and have setup and tear down taken care of.
  6. reloading 223

    My advice. Sell the components and buy factory ammo. Reloading .223 stinks!
  7. What PF are you Running for 3gun

    I tried running really light loads for 3 gun (125-135pf) but my gun seems to run the best with a little higher pf. It's currently at about 145-150pf. The gun seems to run better I guess there is more gas to run the comp. my advice is not to count out a little higher pf. softest is not always the best.
  8. For shooting minor pf I liked the lighter 115gr but shooting major I preferred the heavier stuff. Since I shoot a lot of both I've been using 121gr which is kind of in the middle.
  9. Pistol thumb rest?

    From what I can tell the thumb rests main purpose is to help control recoil. In three gun there is a lower power factor and that's why many of the top guys don't run one. Personally I see it as just another thing to fall/break off and I don't run one while shooting major either.
  10. Too Many choices......

    I have an awesome setup for this purpose as I was in the same boat as you. I couldn't decide. So I had Matt Mclearn build me a 2011 with an infinity slide. The trick is infinity slides come with interchangeable breach faces. I had him fit 2 barrels 9mm and .40 each with respective breach faces. I have to say just for pure shooting the 9mm is more fun. But for uspsa purposes .40 is more practical as you dont loose the points shooting minor.
  11. I am limited on the number of matches I can shoot every year. This match is always on my list. Pete is an evil genius when it come to setting up stages. This year I traveled with a couple of first timers and they were blown away by this match. (It Also helps that I had a pretty good finish this year.) Keep up the great work guys see you next year.
  12. With the arrival of my daughter I have to be more conscious of guns around the house. I was looking at the hornady rapid safe but I figure I'd ask you guys first. What small safe are you using for the bedroom?
  13. Reload at 10 yards?

    Sub 1 sec for sure. It's not easy to get sub 1 sec reloads consistently it takes a lot of dry fire. I never like to brag but I have the fastest reload of anyone I know and it has never been a deciding factor on winning a match. In my opinion it's better to shoot great and have a good reload than to have a great reload and "push" the shooting
  14. First shot El Pres

    If I push I can get my first shot in the .80's. Try not to put expectations on what you can achieve. I have done some things I never thought I could do simply by trying.
