  1. You should end up ~ 4.8gr. Do some searching in the reloading section and you'll find a good starting point. You'll want to be sure you don't get any bullet set back obviously.. assuming your going to chrono load I would start at 4.6gr and work up from there.. Not gonna chrono, your on your own!!
  2. I'm going to assume your reloads are probably coke bottle shaped a bit? When I was loading for my Witness I used a U-die to get a bit undersized, cases were always overly distorted. Are you using a case lube?? Do you tumble the rounds after their done to get the residual lube off?? The factory stuff running fine should help lead you down the path to correct this...
  3. You could try stretching a current mag spring a bit and trying it.. If it initially runs ok then degrades that would confirm your spring theory..... Good luck with this one...
  4. I myself would not go back to the 90 deg mount after running a RTS2.. I have a ver4 which has been reliable. There is now a ver5 available that I have not seen allot of feedback on yet but is reported to have some fixes for previous issues..
  5. The pictures you added confirm what you suspected with bullet being dragged out of mag. The only time I ever saw this was before the Mecgar mags came out and I was using 10mm Witness mags for long .40.. Have you tried to run a mag full of factory ammo thru it? If those don't exhibit the fail and only the reloads do it is probably due to the coke bottling of the case. Be very interesting to have member KneelingAtlas provide input on this Topic....
  6. Have you checked to see if the mag feed lips have opened up a bit?? This would cause the rim to bit at a bit sharper angle and allow it to drag more on the round under it pulling it out slightly.
  7. +1 on the Federal.. With trigger work, Federal for sure...
  8. Yes, Winchester brass.. Powder = N320
  9. I'm glad to see the discussion continues.... When I started this topic I had just competed in a couple of Steel matches in Revolver Optics, it was a ton of fun.!! My hope was this being allowed in CO as mentioned but the 141 mag rule change pretty much would negate doing that now and being competitive.. As we see the deterioration towards lower cap magazines in many states ( Even in VT. the errosion has begun ) I think this topic will become more relevant again (especially for those of us with failing eyesight).... I'd rather run an 8 rnd optic mounted revolver than a 10rnd restricted Open Gun!!!
  10. Cheely requires the use of their own magwells....
  11. I run Winchester with 147gr Blue bullets and have no issues ejecting partially spent or fully spent moons. Due full moons eject smoothly??
  12. I purchased an all in one kit for around $20 & stuck it on my Double A.. . I like it but you are getting a really nice set up for that $100.00 from Atlas...
  13. So, where does the waste water dump into?? Are you on a public waste water system or your own septic??
  14. 929 9mm... If you plan to try to lighten trigger pull much you’ll be staying away from Winchester White box and going to the pricier Federal products but if your not shooting much,, no big deal I guess...
  15. NoSteel

    Fix my Jam

    Mags with or without spacer plate?? In mags I have spacers PD HP’s run fine with Grams followers but stock followers won’t run unless downloaded 1 due to being too tight.. All I run is grams in my STI mags now that have spacer
  16. Any chance your crimp could be loose and bullet is seeing set back when chambering?? If so that would compress the load and pretty much negate the load change..??
  17. It definatly helped in keeping the dot in the glass. I went with just 2 holes..
  18. As stated by others using a ball mill gives a better more precise cut. I angled my hole closest the glass 10 degrees forward, It helps keep the gas from both away from the sight..
  19. CWX barrel cyl gap wide, not cut straight. Frame ding where cylinder makes contact when open, timing off. Barrel clock was good... Overall, 6
  20. I've used a spring loaded center punch on 2 points on the angled side of the racker. Moves the metal around just enough to tighten it up. Punch, test, punch, test. If you go to far just a light dressing with a stone gets it just right. Remember, the racker is the cheap piece so no work on the slide!!
  21. Ok, so you stated dbl action only.. In dry fire practice prepping the trigger back just to the point before hammer drop, check sight picture again and pull trigger to drop hammer. You should note less muzzle movement. Do this till comfortable you can judge the steak in dry fire and then try at the range.. If, and they probably will, your groups tighten up adjust your sights.. Now go back to your normal trigger pull and try to maintain the same group.. Also, For me with a Revo I had to train myself to put my weak hand thumb back around under the hammer over my strong hand thumb to get my group to tighten.. Weird feeling but works...
