    glasses for trap

    My point ---- you just agreed--- personal preference -- what works for each person.

    glasses for trap

    Respectfully right back at you LMS, it's all about personal preference. Different eyes pick up backgrounds and the bird differently. If what you say is true everyone on a trap line, skeet range or a sporting range would be wearing the same color lenses on a given day, and that doesn't happen.

    Trap gun?

    Just remember shooting an auto, it will kick out the empty towards the person next to you. Unacceptable on the trap range. You have to add a device of somekind to catch the shell or deflect it downward.

    Frames are a personal choice. I would suggest, try on as many different frames you can get your hands on. I have a couple of friends who tried wrap-arounds and the lenses kept fogging up. Lens color is also a personal choice, what works for someone else may not work for you. My optomologist told me for the best perception use the lightest possible color without squinting, because everyone sees things alittle different. Lastly ---- don't let your shooting glasses, lens color or tint take over if you've had a bad day on the range.

    Primer Depth 625

    Alesmc Thanks for the info on my 625 trigger job. Seated the federal primers .008 deep, not one problem. I also used winchester's, not one went off. Guess its right where i want it. Great trigger!! Jim

    Shooting Glasses Faq

    For what it's worth-- I Just had a eye Dr. app't with my Optomologist, He is a shotgun guy, trap, sporting clays and some handgun. He just said there are a lot of good glasses out there, his suggestion about lens ---------- For the best perception was to -- " Use the brightest tint without having to squint and actual color is personal preference."
  9. On the other side, I have bought 3 used 1050's over the years. Each one was priced right and the extras I received were well worth the price. I did receive pictures and was fortunate enough to deal with great people. INSPECTION PERIOD WAS ALWAYS IN THE DEAL. I would be patient and go used. Jim
  10. What brand Micrometer bullet seating die do you prefer? Also I've seen some micrometers on Dillon 1050 powder measures. Can you buy these or are they home made? Are they worth it? Thanks in advance Jim

    Range Bag

    If what you say is true and it may be-- Most of the questions asked fall into that category, guns, ammo, etc. etc. IMO that one the reasone we have forums like this is to get others opinions. The info helps because we can cut to the chase and find out what everyone's using or not because of some issues. Jim
