  1. Sorry, didn't have time to go into it at work. Like others have said, burn rate, coatings, powder volume bullet weight, and many other things play into load development. Because a certain powder may burn at a rate that leaves some powder still burning as the bullet leaves the barrel does not mean reducing the amount of powder will make the load more efficient. Remember that a powder charge will have X number of individual powder gains burning at the same time to produce the gas (and therefore pressure) to propel the bullet down the barrel. Reducing the powder charge will also reduce the number of gains burning and the volume of gas at any point during the burn cycle, thus reducing the muzzle velocity regardless of muzzle flash.

  2. http://shop.springerprecision.com/product.sc?productId=257&categoryId=25Thus is the part in question yes it is a solid one piece replacement. Sent from my SM-G920V using Tapatalk So they call it a "EZ slide racker" seems like a stretch to claim is a firing pin stop when the manufacturer doesn't even label it as one.

  3. Send Troy McManus (DNROI) email dnroi@uspsa.org That said is the slide racker striker plate sold and labeled as a firing pin stop? If not I would highly doubt it's ok Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G935A using Tapatalk
  4. If it's like the Hornady then I would play with the position of the wiper springs and the center disk. I have a Hornady and it can fill the feed tube (spring) in about 1 minute. I can load 100 9mm in about 5 minutes without getting ahead of the feeder. Also it feeds faster with a pretty large pile of bullets in it, I normally put in just about as many as fill fit without spilling when I start. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G935A using Tapatalk
  5. Just checked 1.3.14 and the add classifier button is there and it builds the whole classifier for you. I dont remember a android version without it but I have only been using it for a little over 2 years.
  6. This fix has been working great for me for the last 1500 rounds. The rod is a piece of welding rod I put through a hole drilled in the bowl (right now it's just taped in place on the out side) it stops a second case from being able to make it around to the drop window so only one case can drop at a time. The sheet metal ensures that no cases ride over the rod and also bumps and upside down cases out of the notch in the case plate. Between that and adding a brace to keep the feeder from moving around as I run the press, I haven't had any jams since I added the rod (I had the flipper and brace for a while but I was still getting jams every hundred rounds or so) Also with this set up I was running 500 ish cases at a time in 9mm or 38 sort colt as you see in the picture Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G935A using Tapatalk
  7. That can happen because in the high hit factor on each stage changes when you look at it in combined or division specific results.
  8. Ar15sport.com Is a small shop that specializes in A1 parts. If it's available John has it or knows where you can get it. If it isn't on his web site call him and he will help you out Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G935A using Tapatalk
  9. The real answer to the question is no but the perceived advantage would make it into a custom 2011 division like Limited and Open. When Ben started wining Nationals he was in the minority shooting DA/SA guns now that everyone has jumped on that band wagon plastic is the minority. I have watched shooters change from GLOCKs to CZ and never reach the same match performance with the CZ that THEY had with the GLOCK, I';m not saying one is better than the other just that some shooters will perform better with different pistols. Unfortunately (unless you are a gun seller) many(most) shooters do not experiment scientifically to see what truly works better for them, or practice with what they all ready have to get better, they instead buy whatever the new hot pistol is.
  10. Just to be clear, "All the top dudes" does not include 2nd and 3rd at last years Nationals, I believe the difference between first and second was ONE charlie out of 408 rounds
  11. Yes, i just run it the whole time Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G935A using Tapatalk
  12. I ran a stage at one of my club matches that was just 1 popper, I get requests to do that again than any other stage I have run (the One popper was at 80 yards I think that kept it interesting)
  13. I have one on a G22 with a 9mm conversion barrel. I really like how it fits to the slide (the back of the comp is contoured to fit over the bull nose on the factory slide) so far I've only run minor in it, with a 11 lb spring it runs 100% with my 124gr production load. Tried it with some hotter long shot loads and it was super soft but my wife had a few FTE with that load. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G935A using Tapatalk
  14. Ultimately, I don't care what a MD wants to incorporate into a stage. Just don't tell me that simulated land mines are practical and expect me to agree. Only things you see on the way to work or going to the grocery are... practical? What if they were snapping turtles? Honey badgers? Pressure cookers? Your kids toys on the floor while an intruder is in your house. Or the dogs squeaky toy that gives away your location.In fact, squeaky toys would be fun! Kids toys? that would have to be Logo's and you would have to be bare foot. no penalty for stepping on them other than how much it hurts affecting your stage plan.
