  1. That Butt Slam is no joke, it can drop check and still not feed, been there done that. You will be shocked how much a tenth of a grain can change the grouping.
  2. I actually have a 9 mm throat reamer, and have used it on my STI Open guns, I'm way more concerned with OAL on 9 major. When you stuff 10grs of powder in a 9 mm case you can't make short bullets, and if you did it might not be wise. FMJ and JHP's work at normal OAL in the CZ, its just the coated round nose that are fatter towards the point that need to be loaded short. The CZ is very accurate and if it ain't broke don't fix it.
  3. Plated bullets take a little extra care in loading. Do a search here, belling and crimping.
  4. A plunk checker is almost useless with my CZ SP01 Shadow. When I load any new "bullet" I pull the barrel out and make up a test round and drop it in the barrel, but the true test is getting it out! When pulling it out if it resists at all that's a problem. The ACME 125gr is a good example, I loaded 1,000's at 1.135 shot them in Glocks, my Carry gun Kahr PM9, PCC, Sig P226, etc. I take the CZ to range and shoot a 100 work good. I go to a match, and its all good till unload and show clear, I can't open the slide. Not every round is like that that small variance in the bullet and the OAL
  5. In 38 Super my favorite loads were AA#7 10.5gr with 124gr JHP, or 11.3gr with 115gr. OAL was standard 1.245. Out of my guns it ran 175pf, I didn't like 10gr because it didn't produce enough gas, so gassed it up. 5" 2 holes and a Bedel Titanium Comp. I liked N105 just never could get it when needed.
  6. As always, Open the Registry Editor and navigate toHKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESYSTEMCurrentControlSetControlPrintIf you see a key named PostSPUpgrade, right-click and click on Delete.
  7. I took the plunge into the PCC pool. Bought a used stock Freedom FX9 gun from a guy that shot it in matches. It has been a disaster. Today 4th time to a match it ran and the dot stayed on. I had trouble with double feeds, my trusty old EOTec would go lights out after a few shots. The recoil wasn't exactly pleasant, but nothing like my 30-06 deer rifle. The trigger wasn't very good, ok it sucked. I took it to 3 matches, and had trouble every time as stated above. Yesterday the mail man brought the parts, I installed the CMC Trigger, and I installed the Blitzkrieg
  8. The only place I found Jacketed bullets in stock is Weidners, they had ArmsCor 115gr and 124gr FMJ, I'm saving my MG JHP's for the more important matches.
  9. The most important aspect of any Rim Fire in SC, is that it runs 100%, everything else becomes a mood point if it don't run. My RFPO has a rail mount C-More in 6 moa, my open guns are side mores, the rail mount works fine for SC. Finding the dot lol, just lock on to it while at low ready, arms up bang, not like drawing an open gun where muscle memory is everything. When it comes to dots Buy once cry once. C-More is a good solid choice, however it is old school and not sexy like the new micro dots. I have a Romeo 1 on my CO gun, so far it is excellent. Carry extra C-more batt
  10. Sweet, there is just something about the clean simple look. It needs some holster wear marks to make it a classic!
  11. HOLA my favorite bullet for 9 mm minor is the 135gr, a good reduction in recoil from the 125gr, the 147gr seem sluggish, you stand there waiting on the slide to cycle, seems like it anyway. IMHO TiteGroup is harsh, nasty, and hot, but it might slightly edge out 231/WST which don't over heat the gun, and don't coat it in gunk. My go to powder for 9 mm minor is N320, it even smells good. IMR 7625 was my favorite but they quit making it. I tried Clays, yes I like to live dangerous, it was like shooting mouse fart loads, way low on recoil, but I gave it up because the accuracy was horrible.
  12. That must be a good Para! Don't see many Para's these days. Load sounds good, I've shot a lot of WST at 4.3 gr with Precison 125gr bullets and they were accurate and it makes minor 130-135pf. Never loaded anything that short mostly 1.130 to 1.175 depending on the bullet. My guns run better with a longer OAL.
  13. I use to run my C-mores at full brightness. After my 4 year hiatus from shooting I have changed that. While shooting on a bench rest at 25 yards with the dot turned down the holes were tied together perfectly 5 shot group all touching. I turned the dot up full bloom like I use to shoot and the hits went high left and spread out. I know sounds like science fiction but I was able to repeat this test several times consistently. Starting over again having some issues finding the elusive dot and being much slower than the good old days I found having the dot turned up bright was causing me
  14. I would think that the recoil impulse would be similar to what you are use to and the POI should be close. I shot 200gr with tight group for a long time, jacketed were more expensive than other bullets, in the quest for an inexpensive alternative that felt good I tried several weights, brands etc. My favorite bullet became one that my 7 time world shoot limited champion recommended. The 185gr Precision swagged bullet made in Kemp TX. These make power factor with less powder and they cost less and the recoil impulse is softer than the 200gr, plus they are very accurate. While it will g
