  1. I have only had stock type triggers work well in ARs in 22 long rifle. 9mm is also tough on triggers and you need to get triggers that can handle the bolt speed from a blowback Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  3. I use a JP competition buffer in my 300 blackout sub sonic with 150 grain loads. It works. Don’t think trail boss Will but give it a try
  4. It’s stepped brass with a ledge inside the brass that buldges the case out when a longer bullet gets seated.
  5. I loaded some recently at 1.11 for my gen 5 barrel and I reduced the charge. 147 grain RMR bullet seated short for gen 5 Glock 1.11 OAL 6.2 grains 3N38 Glock 17 gen 5 Avg 1007 Spread 106 Standard deviation 40
  6. Driving cross country. Any good place to buy bulk ammo in Sioux Falls or any place along i90 to Spokane Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. It depends on your barrel. The Dillon die worked fine for me in Glocks but not in STI guns. Then when I got into PCC the LEE U die no longer worked due to the tighter chamber am about to try a EGW undersized die. So the answer is it will work or it won't. The 9mm is a tapered case and the die needs to go all the way down on many barrels not just most of the way.
  8. Unless they are running reduced targets to simulate range i would just run dot to save yourself money
  9. I have a loaded moon clip gauge and they dropped right in.
  10. Got a 627 converted to 9mm and my reloads won't chamber. They case gauged but no dice in the cylinder . What are you guys using to size your brass. Factory ammo fits fine. Pat
  11. It is just like a 1911 very easy to take off. Its a little stiffer to put back on but not unbearably so. The mags don't drop fast however they drop but they sort of slowly slide out.
  12. Amateur Range Report Gun Tested Sig P210 (US made version) Date 6-2-18 I went shooting today with a new gun I have been wanting for a long time. A Sig P210. The European version of the pistol is super expensive, and I could not justify it. But last year they started making the 210 in the US with a simplified barrel lock up system and with an improved 1911 style safety as well. I was worried that the simplified barrel lock up might compromise accuracy but that did not seem to be the case. Firing 3 off hand groups at 25 yards my average was 2.02 inches. For comparison I fired a group with my Dawson Precision custom STI Edge a bull barreled 9mm that I use for 3-gun competition and the group size was 3.23 inches. Until I got the Sig the STI was my most accurate 9mm. http://i59.photobucket.com/albums/g299/355sigfan/Product%20reviews/Group%20size_zpsmwbty3ib.jpg[/IMG][/URL] http://i59.photobucket.com/albums/g299/355sigfan/Product%20reviews/STI%20Edge_zpsq5mahfsv.jpg[/IMG][/URL] After sighting the pistol in and firing the 5 shot groups Greg and I had an old-fashioned Bullseye competition for who buys lunch. I won scoring 96 out of 100 at 25 yards slow fire while he got 91 points using his custom Springfield 1911 in .45 ACP. http://i59.photobucket.com/albums/g299/355sigfan/Product%20reviews/Pats%20target_zpsfxjfflji.jpg[/IMG][/URL] http://i59.photobucket.com/albums/g299/355sigfan/Product%20reviews/Gregs%20Target_zpsmp0wd5c7.jpg[/IMG][/URL] After the lunch challenge we did some long-range work on a steel target that is 10 inches wide and tall. We made hits out to 94 yards. It was easy with the sig. The front fiber optic sight was easy to see. The trigger on this gun is smooth and comes in at 3.10 to 3.14 pounds. For comparison my 9mm Edge came in almost the exact same at 3.11 to 3.16 pounds. The Edge also had a front fiber optic sight and adjustable rear sights. So the comparison was very good. The Sigs trigger has just a hint of take up so its not quite as glass rod ish as the 1911 and 2011 type guns but still very good. http://i59.photobucket.com/albums/g299/355sigfan/Product%20reviews/80%20yards_zpsqmguansg.jpg[/IMG][/URL] http://i59.photobucket.com/albums/g299/355sigfan/Product%20reviews/94%20yards_zpse1tuc4hy.jpg[/IMG][/URL] About the only complaint on the gun is that there is a sharp edge on the grip near the safety I will have to have smoothed down. Also due to the slide profile racking and press checking is a bit more difficulty since you have less area to grasp. The slide to frame fit is solid no wiggle or any movement what so ever. I am very happy with this pistol. I purchased it as a range toy for long range pistol shooting.
  13. Actually the 357 sig is a hard round to feed. I had over 8 pistols in this caliber and the sigs all did fine the full size Glocks did as well. (31 and 32) the 33 not so much. Guns converted from 40SW like a Browning Highpower no joy too. The bottle neck round tends to nose dive unless you have strong magazine springs.
