Amarsh replied to doubleaay78's topic in Multi-gun Rules / Stage Design / Match AdministrationMy dad, Jon Marsh, has 5 or 6 first place trophies from sof. Somewhere from 1983-90. I've heard a lot of stories. He was good friends with Mike dalton, mickey fowler, Jeff Cooper (my dad broke every record at gunsight), Michael Harris.... they were on a team for 10 years. It was the best match of the year in his opinion. I still have pictures when I was very young taking pistol lessons from Michael Harris. I'll get some info from him and get back to u.

HoMiE replied to recoilchamp's topic in Pistol Caliber CarbineIf you gun locks back with lrbho, you’re doing it wrong. Wouldn’t really call it a short stroke system if you can lock bolt back.
You've tried a few different powders but not N320. There's no harm in trying some powders to see if there's one that works best for you. N320 is another powder that works great for 9mm Minor and .40 Major. I use it for .45ACP Major, too, but it is a little on the slow side there, at least with 230 grain bullets.
Check the threads in here or in the non-Dillon Loading forum about 1 year old. A guy had a video setup of his powder drop with links to Amazon for the camera and screen. Found this: https://forums.brianenos.com/topic/245955-cheap-method-of-viewing-shell-plate-via-phone-tablet-or-pc/
Have some reliable processing of 40 brass at 1,800 RPH, runs real smooth. Don't have the 2nd guide pin installed yet, not noticing any tool head issues even with bad brass. My arm already feels better about not pulling a handle!
i gave a creeping procedural to a shooter once. it was one of those perfect timing things. milliseconds before i pressed the button he moved his hand to draw. the target was so close that before i could if i were to stop him he had started shooting. After the match while eating we reviewed some vid of the said offense. after many reviews at many speeds he agreed that he did jump the beep. if i had time to stop him before he started shooting then i might have just restarted him, but it happened so fast. its one of those very odd perfect timing things
I can only tell you my experience. I roll everything, process it on my 650 with a mighty armory decapping die, a dillon resizing die, and a redding re-sizing die, brass then gets wet tumbled cleaning the primer pockets. I then convert the 650 over for loading (now have an Evo Pro I'm setting up). I do not separate any of my headstamps. My target OAL is 1.13", I typically see 1.27" to 1.33".
The question I have is why? Don't we reload to shoot, so if your loads meet PF and your happy with them why change? Here’s an article on actually measured recoil force of 9 mm powders, including TG. https://www.ssusa.org/articles/2017/6/19/gunpowder-selection-for-controlling-recoil/ I believe much of our “felt” recoil results from powders is more based on personal feel than measurable data. I personally tried WST, X700 and TG in 40 Major loads and could not tell an difference in cleanliness, smoke or recoil. Gun TF limited, PD 180 Gr FMJ HP. I decided to load both 9mm and 40 with TG to keep it simple, just one powder. BTW, WST metered well, X700 didn’t.

I’ll counter the above. I have my walther cut so deeply the DPP is riding in the top of the firing pin channel. It’s so much better than my adapter-plate Q5Match that the Q will stay irons forever. Mill it, and mill it balls deep. Life is so much better when you want to go back to irons, or switch back and forth.
Could never get mine to run 100% unless I used the 18 round mags from Caspian - those were 100% but were capacity-deficient compared to a 2011. I tried a bunch of different followers/springs/tubes but had little success . Now this was before MBX was in business so things could have changed dramatically in mags since I owned - and subsequently sold - mine. To say I was disappointed in mine is a vast understatement!
My two cents: my main motivation for building a full length for my first open gun is that I think it looks good. Maybe as I progress in open I’ll migrate to a different length, but for now I’m thinking a proven style is a good starting point. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
