  1. There's a product called "add a comb" which is elastic with spacers you can add. Alsoyou can buy spacers for length. I did this when I first bought mine, got a good fit l after trying different sizes. Helped a lot when I had a new stock fitted. Just my 2 cents. Have fun.

    Winchester 244

    I'm in the process of using 244, 200 grn. bayou coated bullets and fed primers in my 1911"s. I shoot lighter loads, I don;t like beating up my 45's and I shoot twice a week at my local range, so I do burn up some ammo. I've dropped the min. book load quite alot and am using lighter recoil springs. No malfunctions, really clean burning and so far really accurate up to 25 yds. I have not put them in a rest yet as I'm working on function right now. Forgot to add it meters extremely well in my dillons, 550 and 1050. So far so good. It feels like a clean burning bullseye.
  3. All my 1911's, combination formula of Mobil 1 5-30 and a additive similar to STP. Works for me and I shoot them all really wet. Jim
  4. Any of you tried 244 Winchester for 45 acp. coated 200 grn.? Advertised as clean, low recoil, accurate and meters well for low to mid range velocity.. Thanks in advance Jim
  5. Anyone running 3.4 to 3.6 N310 with 200 grn..? Looking for a light range load. Thanks in advance Jim
  6. Swordfish= Thank You for your service!!!!! Jim
  7. Thank you guys for all the help. (not sure about the "not telling gender" guy) Took a set of grips down with a dremel and sanded them smooth. Going in the right direction but I am ordering the hoque big butt, no finger grooves as many of you have recommended. Thanks again Jim
  8. Anyone use the JM wooden grips? Jim
  9. I have second set of monogrips, I will try a dremel or a belt sander and take the finger grooves down. SteelCityshooter you are right, almost makes the 625 no fun to shoot. Thanks for the input jim
  10. Started shooting alot of double action only on my 625, have set of hoque grips. My middle finger is just plain sore from shooting. I'm using a light target load. I've tried differnt holds- no difference. Before I start buying and trying different grips. Have any of you had this issue and what did you do yo solve it? Thanks in advance. Jim
  11. The way bench is set up I can sit or stand, also can raise my legs while sitting to take pressure off my lower back. Jim
  12. Works perfectly! One of the best upgrades on my 1050 so far. Thanks Jim
  13. What is the purpose of the zip tie next to the reloading station on a 1050? Anyone have a picture. Thanks in advance Jim Memphis mechanic- Thank You for the video!! Jim

  15. Just curious if your bench is Really Solid and Flat. Wobble and not being level flat could cause issues,
  16. My 1050 I do both. My 550 I only sit, don't know why. been doing it since I got many many moons ago.
  17. Digital scales are great and accurate BUT there are things ypu must do because they are finicky. Make sure its on a level flat, sturdy surface. It should be away from all air ducts, drafts etc. Make sure scale set up to zero and back away to let it settle in. When weighing step back and let scale do its thing. I've dealt with digital scales commercially, some friends don't even use them near flourscent lighting. Personally use a Dillon and have no issues, if the above is followed. I know alittle overboard, but I like accurate measurements. Jim
  18. I use it on my boat trailer light connections, no corrosion. I would assume woks the same way on any battery connections. Nothing worse than corroded connections or batteries.

    Been using golf gloves with the index finger cut . Get a tight fit because they stretch, the winter golf club works well, just alittle thicker.

    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.
  24. 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
