  1. I bought some of the spire point molds to cast 38 and 40 cal pointed bullets.. they seemed to want to feed better but when it came down to it, they were about equal.. the pointed bullets did look a little meaner..
  2. It's worked pretty well for us.. It works out for the extra prizes that seem to crop up after everyone has "walked the table" and no one is left to walk and what do I do with the rest of this stuff?
  3. I will suggest that a hybrid method is what I use for major matches we hold at Richmond.. Match prizes are order of finish, by division if the divisions are large enough.. Money Plaques go to Winner in Divisions. Smaller money plaques go to Category winners. Every competitor has a single raffle ticket and can win prizes from a separate drawing pool. There is no way to get added chances and the raffle is only open to competitors (no way to buy in).. The top prize is usually a gun or valuable prize, every subsequent prize falls in value.. so that the person
  4. That was a post I made over 11 years ago.. and was with the pre-Federal/CCI merger. Since they merged companies, I no longer have any issues as stated in a more recent post above.
  5. Speaking as an MD for both Multigun and Single gun matches.. I've tried a few variants over the years.. I've never tried the one on-one off style and it seems that it would create more problems with what others have said.. too many people on the range, parking headaches, needing to keep 2x as many people fed, hydrated, and if it's hot, under tents or some sort of shade structure. Multi-day matches where you might shoot 4-6 stages in two half days or a 4-4-2 format over three days seem to work out best. I'm helping coordinate a match that will have a hybrid format.. 4 stages on Frid
  6. It seems there might be a conflict with the Rocky Mountain Regional.. though I have yet to see anything in writing about it either on BE.com or on the ICORE page.. Also there is talk about Fallon hosting the match, when details become apparent, Richmond might not host it after all.. at this point, it's on the Richmond Calendar, but don't schedule days off or travel plans until I get word from the higher ups at ICORE.org.
  7. Well darn.. if that's the case then I guess we won't be hosting it.. that's the only date we have available. I made my plans last year. I didn't see their announcement here or I wouldn't have posted.

    Primers CCI

    I'll share that sometimes Midway USA has primers on closeout for a better deal than Powder Valley... though you'll have to snag them before I do..
  9. The Richmond Hot Wheels are hosting the 2018 ICORE NW Regional. We are proposing 8 stages (which includes a classifier) to happen on July 21st, 2018. Practiscore link available HERE. This will be a one day match. If you have an RV or trailer, you can stay on the range (no hookups besides basic power unfortunately). I will at a later time post information about a match hotel and other details will be emailed to you once you register on Practiscore via the email address you provide when you sign up. Th hosting venue is Richmond Rod & Gun Club and they are located at 3155 Goodrick

  11. Oddly enough, that necro-post was with primers from that time period (2006).. I've tried CCI primers lately and had no issues with them.. I know a few people who I've suggested they try the Fiocchi primers on their 650's only to have them tell me they are having the same feeding issues I used to have with CCI primers.. I have no issues in either my 20 year old 650 or my 2016 created 650. it wasn't an alignment issue at all, they would not feed in the primer assembly, the primers were just a tad tall. it wasn't that they would not seat at the time, they just would not feed and would
  12. At Richmond, we have so few ICORE matches (at least in the coming year) that we will allow semi-auto shooters in addition to offer an additional weekend for the PCC shooters to play. Since ICORE is such an accuracy dependent sport, they soon find out that any advantage they had in speed negates their platform if they can't get good A zone hits.. so it actually helps them to improve their accuracy game for other sports and injects a bit more money into the coffers.. It also makes things a bit more fun since we can use certain targets in ICORE that are not legal in IDPA or USPSA.. so we have tha
  13. Had a great match at the ICORE SW regional.. Definitely a great new venue and despite the sand condition, well, this range has a lot of potential.. I enjoyed my brief stay and look forward to more matches at this range!
