Looks for Match

Looks for Match (2/11)

  1. It is very hard to chip off, but it will eventually, it appears to be lead and I think melted/burned coating and carbon.
  2. maybe we are talking about bore vs everywhere else. I actually get leading(or something) in the barrel with coated bullets in every revolver I shoot them through eventually, I used to shoot a lot though. They all do pic attached pretty quickly.
  3. Every coated bullet i ever shot in my guns resulted in leading it seems. Only berrys plated shot totally clean but I moved off them for cost and availability. They are objectively cleaner and shoot better groups in my experience but cost did become a factor, at some point they made a price increase that put them on par with actual jacketed bullets, which if money were no object i would def shoot...
  4. No idea if it matters in a practical way or not, from reading old posts on here by leatham and talking to bianchi guys, more bearing surface the better seems to be the rule when trying to group super tight which makes sense. Whether that groove matters or not? Seems like if gas is getting past the tail and into that groove its probably not helping?
  5. we need to get you a better phone/camera! looks very cool, how does it shoot? I bet its extremely loud...
  6. fair enough. 2.6 with a 160 bayou/ibeji was the meta load when 929's came out, a bunch of us ran that for a long while. 2.6 is borderline clays drop on a dillon bar, you need the xsmall bar to be sure you get a 2.6 everytime, or at least, that was my experience on a 1050. I usually did a 2.4 but was only shooting in icore. the 160's fly straighter in a 929 barrel around 775 fps, my personal theory here based on studying what bullseye guys do is the 160 is getting overspun when you go over 800, slowing it down keeps the groups better at 50 yards which used to matter alot when 'far and near' was in the IRC. 50 yard groups pretty irrelevant in uspsa except for the odd standards course or are match where an old timer wants to see of anyone can actually shoot a group or not...
  7. this will contribute to a filthy gun in general and leading on the frame, yolk, etc etc.. a .010 is also costing you at least 30 fps(based on my experience of 2 guns with BC gap of .004 and a .010)...
  8. Its simple enough, and if you mess it up its an excuse to buy more tools!
  9. and you don't need the whole kit, all the bits in there are sold separately, just takes a little clicking around...
  10. fair enough, I am assuming, probably incorrectly, slow fire no time limit OP is able to hit things because he specifically mentions jerking trigger with a good site picture on a timer, so the issue is doing the stuff "at speed", sounds like aim-aim-aim-NOW to me...
  11. I've been thinking alot about my own shooting lately and some of these questions. Two names that are sort of premminent in the uspsa training thing are ben stoeger and steve anderson. Both of them reject completely the notion of going slow to get your hits, anderson even suggests(and I think he is definitely right) if you "slow down to get your hits" you will slow EVERYTHING down, your loads, your transitions, your movement etc etc...so its super counter productive. I have as of late watched this video literally 50 times in the last few days, on youtube "Ben Stoeger Teaching Speed Shooting Fundamentals" its like 55 minutes long but the first 25 or so addresses the core of what you are asking. In this he talks very plainly about the visual feedback loop of shooting in a way I have never heard it expressed quite like, and its really directly stuff from the Enos book(letting the gun recoil, look where you want the bullet to go and let your vision put the gun there) work trigger, letting the process happen vs trying to force it. That last bit is something I have only experience a few times, shooting as fast as you can see, not as fast as you can consciously do it, the dot/sights are telling you what is happening and hands adjust to it, etc...
  12. This def seems to be the case. Super light is not necessarily the answer and can be a problem. What everyone seems to agree on is the balance, pull and rebound, be the same, and the force be equal throughout.
  13. Dave does exceptional actions in revolvers and revolver work in general, he really understands the entire thing and relationship amongst all the parts and the results show in the guns he tunes.
  14. Dave's gun feels really really good, ruger def feels diff in hand, but the trigger is very light, id guess 5 lbs or slightly less, and while shooting a stage i dont think you'd know the difference to a good sw job. Dave also welds that lever on the cyl release that makes engagement VERY easy...
