  1. Thanks all, did a thorough clean including a copper solvent treatment and all the rounds now pass the plunk and spin test. Training session today so will see if the problem reappears.
  2. Slide is stopping about 1/4 inch before going into battery.
  3. Resurrecting an old topic, but with a twist. My five year old Stock II has recently started to give me problems with failure to chamber. As far as I know nothing had changed with my ammunition, the problem occurs after about 50 rounds from fresh cleaned with either my standard reloads or with factory Geco, both using 124 gr round nose projectiles. Changing to truncated cone bullets the problem goes away! Questions, why has it only recently started and how do I fix it?
  4. https://www.howtopronounce.com/italian/tanfoglio The "g" is silent
  5. But.... if 3N37 is all you have then around 5.4 gr behind a 124 gr works fine. If a bit dirty.
  6. You're still a youngster!
  7. I can confirm that they don't work on an SDB. The friction from the damper ring stops the shell plate from indexing fully and this means that the primer shuttle does not line up correctly.

    Geco 9mm ammo

    Through my Shadow the 124 gr Geco make an average of 1113 fps, ~ 138 PF

    Geco 9mm ammo

    Use the 124gr all the time, no problems at all. If I remember correctly it was the official match ammo for the World Shoot in France.
  10. They are shown as being for the 650 and 1050 machines. Any thoughts on whether or not they would work on an SDB?
  11. Any penalty is going to ruin a classifier! Just shoot it as specified.
  12. Did you check what would have happened to your hit factor if you had re--engaged the target, got an A hit in say one or two seconds more and accepted the 10 point extra shot penalty?
  13. The search function is your friend. There was a fairly long discussion on this very topic recently. Search IPSC style stages.
  14. If you decide to go ahead with the training, there is a Spanish version of the IPSC rule book on the Global Village web site which you could use side-by-side with the English original for appropriate vocabulary. http://ipsc.invisionzone.com/topic/16099-nuevas-traducciones-al-español/?tab=comments#comment-154740
