  1. Since a running gun is absolutely necessary to win, Customer service is 80% of the purchase for me. I need to know the builder will stand behind it and fix it when it needs anything.
  2. Looking to try AA7 powder Anyone have a starter load for 9mm 115 and 124 JHP?
  3. Yep, take a look at the picture. It was towards the bottom of the 8lb bottle Assuming the 'debris' is heavier than the powder, it makes sense it would be at the bottom Also, I tested with new powder. Did not change the press. When I ran new powder, the charge went down .2 grains in weight Meaning.... the other material is obviously heavier. Adjusted charge back to 7.7 with new powder and all went well for 1000 rounds Shot 1k and no debris
  4. I looked back into the WAC bottle (8lb), poured some out into a plate Here is what it looked like. It is a flake powder. It should not have the cylinder type material. It looks like an extruded powder. It was towards to bottom of the bottle (last lb) I opened a new bottle and it was clean.
  5. In the end, I found it was contaminated powder.
  6. Definitely not corn cob media. I don't have any Un-burned powder is definitely a suspicion. The flake stuff would make sense for WAC I have Vit and understand what you are saying. It has the same shape but longer. Very strange looking
  7. Recently, I have had a few jams that I could not identify how. The slide is 99% forward but not locked up. Cannot push forward. Short version, I found debris in the chamber area. Yellow cylinder type material about 1/16th long and maybe a 1/32 in diameter. Also found as flat 'chips'. Bright yellow in color It gets behind the hood and stops the lock up The question is, what could it be / where is it coming from? It is not metal or brass. Load is; 9mm major Starline new brass Winchester Small Rifle primer Hornady Haps 115 JHP Autocomp Powder
  8. Over the years we have seen very few new classifiers. Years ago they slowly started removing any classifier with steel targets. I also notice that only a few have any movement. Personally, I would like to see three new classifiers introduced each year. They could be vetted at the Nationals, allowing many of the GMs to give a baseline. So how do we get some new classifiers into the mix and keep them indicative of the sport?
  9. I'll take the barrels


    (2)  SVI hybrid 9mm 5.0 C/P ramp          $300 each   

    (2) Schuemann ultramacth .355 N/W ramp 4.65 commander barrels threaded  $260 each


    How you want the money?

      I'm assuming they are new and no ports....


  10. Personally I think the only problem is they are trying to place rifles in a pistol match. If they put the division in Multi-Gun (where they already have the rule book for rifles) it wouldn't be an issue. RO's are already trained for it. Match Directors don't have to change much. The only short fall would be long shots for the PCC. IMO, I like the division but it's a rifle and therefore belongs in a rifle match. I predict PCC will become a separate match where pistols are allowed. Starts will be like steel matches but with movement.
  11. I didn't ask two questions but anyway. The problem I am seeing is when matches try to mix PCC into a pistol match. By definition (and any law in the country that I know of) it is a rifle. When you mix in the rifle into a pistol match it becomes a Multi-Gun match and therefore falls under a different rule book. I still think it's a great division but falls under Multi-Gun matches (JMO)
  12. ^^^ Following the Appendix for PCC equipment rules.... An AR Pistol is not allowed and therefore only rifles are allowed. Does this not make it a Multi-Gun match by default?
  13. Personally, I see PCC as a rifle, not a pistol. After all it's a pistol caliber carbine rifle. If they put them in with Multi-Gun matches the rules are pretty much the same except equipment. Mixing PCC with a pistol match is the same as mixing rifles in the pistol match. It's no longer a pistol match but rather a multi-gun match Since both pistols and rifles are included, someone is going to ask which rules apply. It's a great division but doesn't fit in a pistol match.
  14. Looks like the stages kicked your ass. As a Master at 63% I would more upset with my performance than the stages For the record, I sucked worse....but then I had a broken gun
  15. Nationals cannot have iffy stages. Circus stages that have the potential to fail or even cause reshoots are absolutely out. Stages with the potential of subjective calls are out. Nationals is about shooting and the execution of skills. It needs a variety of short, medium and long stages to compare different competitors skill sets across the board. You may do well on the long field courses and fall short on the short stages. You may be a quick draw but not have a good break down of long stages. It's the competitor that passes the test on all skill levels. I think the stages were challenging, fair, solid and covered the many skill levels of a National Champion. I think other things were missing but the stages were good. The pomp and circumstance were missing. USPSA as an organization put very little in the promotion side. Very few vendors, very little social effect and very little USPSA 'showcase' effort. I had several people say it didn't 'feel' like a National event. It's time for USPSA to put a significant part of the 2 million income into the Nationals. So it's your turn. Did you volunteer at the match, did you send in suggestions or are you just complaining? Remember, if you complain about volunteers and the job they do, be prepared to do the job yourself.
