    Acme "new" 124gn 9mm: OAL?

    Then, I'd guess that you will be unpleasantly surprised one day, at the range.

    Ar trigger tech questions

    I don't have an answer, but if I had to put my money down, I'd bet that a lighter trigger pull would "wear" faster than a heavier trigger pull. Not arguing, or even disagreeing, but it seems more logical to assume lighter goes first. Any supporting evidence to support your hypothesis ?

    Powder spillage

    Okay, thanks. The ad does say they are for 650's and 1050's - I guess not even 550's

    Hello From Alberta Canada

    Edmonton or Calgary ? (I spend two years in Edmonton, back in 1959 - 1960) .

    Powder spillage

    Do they work on a SDB ?

    Order placed....

    You shoot that many .32's that you need a 650 ?

    Glock 34 gen 5 hand load

    That should do it - if not, might be the crimp (too little)

    1911 38super or 9mm

    If you decide to go with the 9mm, you might want to load them as long as possible That should aid feeding.

    Drum Magazines for 3 Gun

    As soon as the weather gets warm again, take your wife shooting, outdoors with a .22 rifle, good eamuffs, and reactive targets. You'll have to rein her in when she starts ordering more shooting equipment.

    Lowest riding holster for Prod/Ltd

    If he's shooting Limited, buy any Open holster - you can get them down very low and you don't have to raise your arm to draw - you come up a half inch and push the gun forward. For Production, you're stuck - another great advantage to OPEN.

    Open 9mm Glocks

    If you're shooting "FOR FUN", go with the Glock shooting 9mm Minor (get the loads up to c. PF150). If you're very competitive and want to start finishing high on the chart, save up and buy a USED 2011 and use 9mm Major. OR, you can buy a CZ in 9mm Open - in between the Glock and the 2011.

    Lil'Gun for .38 SC

    You're better off with N105, 3N38 or even HS6. If you live in Colorado, I know where you can get a smokin' deal on N105

    Anybody use VV N105 for 9 minor?

    Advertise it, locally, at your clubs, and post it here with a headline like this : WTS VV N105 powder Colorado, only. Since the "season" has ended in much of the US, it might take a few months for it to sell, but someone will buy it in the Spring

    Atlas or Akai

    I don't think so. Brand new 9mm brass isn't that much cheaper than .38 brass. It's just that you can easily purchase 9mm brass USED - very difficult to buy .38 brass used. New, they're the same price almost - but USED, that's where the big savings is for 9mm. But, as some mentioned, if you buy brand new .38 brass, and use it 4-10 times in practice - then reload it again and leave it at the range, it costs the same as 9mm brass that you bought used.

    9 mm Major “Crimp” ?

    Most are 3.78", just a little more than you are currently using. BUT, if your 3.80" is working (chambers and no bullet set back), there isn't any problem. Increasing the crimp "drastically" will probably affect accuracy, adversely.
