  1. OAL on .40S&W STI

    My Guns won’t run 100% on factory length. They’ll run fine enough for practice but I wouldn’t run a match with factory ammo due to the likelihood of FTF. I load to 1.185-1.205 depending on my bullet (I shop around and have shot numerous different brand bullets). The variance is because I just leave my seating die set and each bullet ends up a little different. All that are in the 1.180+ range seem to load fine.
  2. Looking for new powder

    Not totally on topic but I will say I’ve shot a lot of 125s and some 115 JHPs. The 115 gr JHPs were my favorite. Doubtful there’s a meaningful difference on a timer but I perceived them to be a better load.
  3. Looking for new powder

    Also- you can load coated lead for major. But it will leave lead build up in the comp and be smokey as hell. I’ve shot thousands of SNS 125 gr coated bullets at 171 PF. But they look like this.... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  4. Looking for new powder

    HS-6 is popular. I load 9 major and have loaded with Autocomp from the start. I like it and feel no need to look elsewhere currently. I have 8lbs of HS6 I picked up here and there when powder was scarce but I’ve never loaded it. Lots of people do like it judging from posts. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  5. Black Friday bullet deals?

    Xtreme was a solid deal. Just purchased .40 180gr rnfp plated bullets for 7.7 cents/bullet delivered using both discounts. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  6. Optic for CO and HD

    Trijicon RMR. That’s the only optic I’d use for a defense gun. It’s not the best optic for CO- but it will still work very well in that role. If they made a 50,000hr Deltapoint I’d go with that... but so far no luck. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  7. CMC 3.5 trigger in PCC ???

    Same situation with me. I put my 3.5# cmc in before I read ppl were having problems. It’s run 100% in my PSA Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  8. Walther PPQ w/ +2 basepads - Prod Legal?

    Thanks for the info! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  9. Hey all.. Maybe I missed this, if so I apologize, but I've searched and can't seem to find out if the a Walther PPQ M2 will fit the production box w/ the 17 round mags (stock 15s with +2 extensions). I'm sure this will get answered quickly and thanks to anyone who's got the answer.
  10. CM 06-03 Can You Count

    3 and/or 4. The targets are so close for this one you shouldn’t even notice the no shoots. I typically shoot this one left to right. So I start on the partial in the first string and end on it in the second string. I do it this way just because it’s more natural for me to transition to the right. That being said I’d venture a guess that the score would probably end up pretty close shooting in any order. The hard part about this classifier isn’t really the points, it’s executing the manipulations at top speed without a hitch. To smoke a 100 on this one you have to have a flawless (and fast) draw and reload on each string. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  11. I was in the same situation you are in. I debated exactly the same- in the end I opted for the 1050. I am SOOOOOOOO glad I did. The 1050 is a great machine. I still have 2 650s on my bench that are collecting dust. I actually plan on selling them and getting another 1050 at some point. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  12. USPSA First Time Reloader Dillon 550 vs 650 etc

    Sounds like you’re in for the 650. Good call. I would echo what a few others have said and if the money is there look at the 1050. I loaded about 40,000 rounds on 650 before upgrading to a 1050- holy crap. The 1050 is awesome. Since then I’ve gone with an auto drive (ammobot) and I’m now in reloading heaven, which is to say I have very little time investment for lots of loaded ammo return. If you’re loading to support 20-25k a year you will be spending LOTS of time reloading. The time savings of the 1050 could be quickly realized as worth the extra investment of the more expensive press. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  13. STI DVC Open gun ejection advice needed 9mm Major

    It blows my mind that they still sell the guns with slide rides mounted directly over the ejection port. Maybe it’s fine with 38 but with 9 it’s clearly the problem. It’s easy to find offset mounts that would allow keeping the slide ride or they could just make the jump to the micro dots- pick a brand- and be done with it and have a lot more happy open gun customers Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  14. Replacement MBX mag springs?

    I️ have put one gram spring/follower set in a 9mm 170 MBX mag and had good luck with it. All my other mags for 40 and 9 I️ use stock MBX parts. I️ did find that I️ needed to stretch the springs to keep them working well. My standard now is to take my mags apart brush the tube and stretch the springs between stages and they run great. I️ stretch them till there is about 3 or 4 coils out of the bottom of the mag when the follower is fully inserted. Seems like a pain in the ass but it works so I’ll keep going with it for now. That said, I️ do not stretch or mess with my mags/springs during practice sessions and rarely if ever have issues. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  15. What does RMR mean? I’ve not seen that before or I’m spacing. I have loaded both coated lead and jhp. For coated lead 125gr bullets I loaded to 1.165” with 7.0 gr of WAC. This got me 171 out of my dvc. For JHPs I loaded 115s to 1.175 and 7.5gr WAC got me 169pf Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
