  1. I fly with guns often. I am actually sitting on a plane with my gun in the plane waiting to take off as I type this. I prefer to fly with guns in separate cases and have two large aluminum cases, one for long guns and one for pistols. The pistol case will hold several guns or an AR broken down and a pistol. The large one holds two long guns and a pistol . Both are large enough it would be difficult to steal. I was told by TSA today that they will start opening all gun cases again next week due to a policy change. As far as procedures at airports it seems they are all different. Some go to TSA some go on belt if they have xray capability for oversize items. Sometimes they come out with other luggage, sometimes I have to get them from special handling.

  3. I don't find it feels any different that HS-6. My motivation for using this powder is availability in 8 pound jugs and cost. HS-6 locally is $32.99 pound and I can only get it in one pound cans. The 8 pound jug I have was $23 a pound.
  4. Christmas came early thanks to 49th Cartridge Company!
  5. Ok, if you say so. Am I your stalker victim for today?
  6. Glad I found this, thought I was losing it when it kept happening.
  7. I’m a little confused. Your first statement says you are asking about primers for a Glock then your questions are about the CK. My Glocks would reliably work with Federal small pistol. Never tried rifle primers. Winchester primers worked most of the time. My CK Arms open gun has set off every brand of pistol and rifle primer I have used. If that is what you are asking.
  8. Mine was just over 5 pounds new. With GG kit is now 3 pounds 4 ounces.

    TTI +2 Extension fitting?

    I don’t get too worked up over capacity on the reload magazine . If I start with 23+1 and reload with a factory 21 round magazine (which I will probably download one) I have 44 rounds between the two which should handle any stage. If it doesn’t I’m fubar anyways and having one more round isn’t going to fix it.

    TTI +2 Extension fitting?

    Boy I feel like an idiot. Got home from a trip and they were waiting in the mail. Was in a hurry and tried to put them on from the back like every other extension I’ve owned and didn’t look at them close enough to see they would slide on from the front. They fit fine, all is well. Thanks for setting me straight.
  11. Bought 2 TTI +2 magazine extensions for my x-5 21 round magazines. I was under he impression these were slip on but mine would probably need a bfh to get them on unless I file a bit of metal off the back of the mag to get the lip to fit over the back of the mag. Anyone else have this problem? I don't mind doing it but want to make sure I'm not missing something as they didn't come with any instructions and I didn't see anything on the TTI web site saying the mags would need to be modified.
  12. Great service, great bullets, great price.

    SIG 365

    I’m not a big fan of sub- compacts as I wear xl gloves and have long fingers. While at the range I got to talking with another shooter who happened to have one and I shot about 20 rounds through it. I was very impressed with the feel of the gun in my hands and with the ability to manage recoil. I’m hoping Santa brings me one for Christmas .
  14. Worked up to 9.8 grains which got me to where I wanted to be right around 172-173 power factor. The warm load was indoors at 70 degrees then kept in my truck with the heater on until ready to shoot. The cold load was kept outside in the bed of my truck for a couple hours until shot. The difference wasn't huge but could be a factor if you like to keep it close. After getting the load to where I wanted it I loaded 100 rounds and shot a few drills. Liking this powder so far. May have found my replacement for HS-6 and WAC. CK Arms Thunder Open with KKM barrel and three holes. Ammo loaded on Dillon 650. Winchester once fired brass and Winchester SPP.
