  1. I had an old STI barrel one time and I had to go up to 8.6 HS6 to make 170 with a MG 124 JHP. Most of my others now only need 8.1-8.4 but I've loaded as high as 8.6. Watch for pressure signs - I'm sure you're aware of that but I wanted to mention it. Also, I read one time when the increase in powder in a Major load failed to raise the velocity, there was a some sort of power curve issue that could be dangerous. That was years ago and I will try to look around for a reference but I would be extremely cautious with going any higher. Is there any unburnt powder residue with the 8.4 loaded rounds?
  2. Option 2 is best but Option 3 is tempting also and a very good deal.
  3. Great post ZZT. A few more questions: 1) How much of the 9mm case does MP fill up? 2) Have you tried it with 124 JHP? 3) If yes, any load data to share? Thanks
  4. As always, thanks for the years of helpful data for so many!
  5. +1 - I have one of his comps also.
  6. If you don't want to send it off or have a local gunsmith work on it, you can get some cold blueing or even some of the spray finishes to help a little. Not ideal but better than nothing. Like it was said above, you will have to keep it well oiled constantly.
  7. Nick is correct, the key word being "most recent"... "... scores in the most recent six or eight scores."
  8. Did you look at the Mitchell Custom right side mag catch? Good info here also:
  9. I'm not sure I follow here, are you saying that going from muzzle down to pointing to a side berm could be a DQ? or from muzzle up to side berm? Or saying that if you case the PCC with the muzzle down, you would DQ? In essence, it states "while casing" so you would already be at the berm or within a reasonable distance, sleeve or bag it while it's pointing at the berm. Please elaborate. Thanks.
  10. 1) Yes, absolutely. I welcome all comments that will keep everyone safe and make me a better/safer shooter. Also, safety warnings are allowed by the stage ROs per rule 8.6.1. 2) Good idea. If they can't be mature enough to accept constructive comments, well they need to grow up. Sometimes during the heat of a run, we all lose a few IQ points. Also, just a comment, they either DQ'ed or they didn't, call what you see - nothing more, nothing less.
  11. I have the same rifle and use N320, works great!
  12. +1 Great place with great products. I have made many orders here. Great tutorials also. Let us know how it turns out...
  13. The OP situation seems pretty clear that the MD attempted to compel shooter movement without the basis of a true safety issue - taking your word for that since I was not there. This goes all against 1.1.5 so not good. So a Forbidden Action, which must be specified in the WSB, is only used when such movement will likely result in an unsafe condition. That is solely a judgement call by the official so was there any explanation as to what made the movements likely unsafe? Were there holes in the ground? Debris? Maybe standing water where a slip/fall was likely? Can you expand on this? On the situation with GregJ, that is more of a "Off-Limits" area, not a Forbidden Action, and must be clearly defined in the course along with put in the WSB and that is okay and advisable in a lot of situations like that. Also, the penalty for each is quite different so getting the correct declaration is important.
