    Limcats new Magwell

    I wondered this as well. My Dawson Ice insert is banged up pretty good after a season with my sloppy reloads.

    That foam sure looks like a handguard to me. Even being sold as such. https://taccom3g.com/product/foam-handguard/

    pcc starts

    Good question. I've never seen PCC without some sort of handguard/forestock. What does such a thing look like?
  5. Like many on here, I've always thought that the Hodgdon burn rate chart was incorrect in its listing of HS6 being faster than Autocomp and CFE. It's easy to assume that since the charge weights of HS6 are much higher than AC and CFE, it had to be slower. I spoke with Chris Hodgdon recently about this. He told me that the burn rate charts ARE correct. He said that HS6 was developed in the 1960's and is much older "technology" than AC and CFE. HS6 does not burn as efficiently as CFE. So while CFE takes less powder to make the same PF as HS6, it actually is slightly slower burning. CFE was developed using modern technology and burns very efficiently. Another interesting fact he shared with me is that CFE and AC are different powders. He said while the burn rate is very close, they are definitely different powders. CFE is not simply AC with the special copper fouling coating. Like many, I always thought they were the same powders. Just thought I would share.

    The WSB could simply say "holding PCC by handguard in either hand." Then it is up to the competitor to carry it in their weak hand if they choose to.

    No. Because you can never start a COF by touching your pistol or ammo. It's not really a parallel as it's a different set of rules.

    Can't do what? "Trail Carry" explicitly or using ambiguous carry terms that not everyone might understand or agree upon?

    I tried putting in different start positions for PCC at the local level and the butt hurt just wasn't worth it in the end. A lot of PCC shooters' minds explode if they are not able to start with both hands on their rifles. The one I tried was "holding PCC in one hand only by the handguard, muzzle pointed downrange, with both wrists below belt at their respective sides." I thought it was a fairly practical start position.

    Nationals Survey

    I used to shoot 115's but then switched to 124's in 9 major. I'm shooting about 2 IPSC matches per year and would rather just load one bullet year round. I had a slight preference to the dot movement of the 115's but it wasn't drastic. If I didn't have to load for IPSC, though, I would probably just shoot 115's.

    2019 Rules are released...

    No worries. I should have been more explicit. Obviously you can't look ANYWHERE as I stated. For instance, you can't look behind you and still be in compliance. But it appears that you can look directly left or right as long as it's within 90 degrees of the median intercept of the backstop. Under the previous rules, this was not allowed.

    2019 Rules are released...

    Facing Downrange-Not facing uprange. Any position facing side berms or backstop within 90 degrees of the median intercept of the backstop. So anything that is not uprange is considered to be downrange? We can now look anywhere and it is considered facing downrange.

    Accurate #7 temperature sensitivity affecting PF?

    The best way to check for temp sensitivity is to do it yourself. Put 10 rounds in a ziplock bag and put in a cooler of ice on your way to the range. Then heat up 10 rounds. In the summer, I simply put 10 rounds in a plastic ammo box and let sit in the sun for a bit until the brass is hot to the touch. Chrono both and you'll see how temp sensitive that powder is. If it's cold out, I'll heat up the ammo on the car defroster. I do this before settling on any powder as temp sensitivity is too much of a variable for me to deal with at majors. We spend thousands of dollars traveling to matches. It's not worth it to stress about potentially going minor at a major. Here was my latest test I did a few weeks ago.

    Sig Romeo3 on an Open gun?

    They are both about the same. Brazos sits a little further back but again, it's not enough for me to notice when shooting.
