  1. Use the new style plunger with a piece of drill rod behind it instead of the spring.
  2. Apparently my powder measure has enough clearance between powder bar and spacer (.007) to allow Sport Pistol to get in there, wear the parts and dust the press. Today I smoothed out the roughness and made a .004 shim for the spacer. If your powder measure runs clean and smooth with fine powders you don't have a problem.
  3. After using SP for 6 months it seems my Dillon powder bar is getting chewed up. Anyone else notice this?
  4. Long action Smiths are not difficult to shoot fast, don't know how the length of pull compares to the Ruger though.
  5. The Brazos 124 is an excellent profile, looks a lot like the H&G #331. I got a bunch in over the weekend and the first 6 I ran over the chrono gave a 0 SD with Alliant Sport Pistol. I’ve never seen a 0 SD for 6 shots before and may never see another but it made me smile. john
  6. I filed my Lee 9mm size die flush with the carbide insert, after doing this all rounds drop in my Dillon gauge unless the case rim has damage but that has nothing to do with sizing.
  7. 158 gr rn Berry’s and most of the 160 rn coated bullets have a good shape for speedloader use. I’m with mwp on the weak hand gun abuse issue. I reload strong hand and as long as the gun is muzzle down I drop the speedloader with a soft release from just above the cylinder, then as the rounds find the holes I grip the speedloader by the spring cover or spring and trigger the realease. When I do the drop my hand never really leaves the speedloader. This is the best technique I’ve found with the K frame gun I use.
  8. TFin04, Can’t do both with one gun, not and be competitive anyway. IDPA is cheaper to get into and you can use factory 38s to get started, if you stick with revo you will want to reload though. john P.S. If you decide to get a 929 MWP gives excellent advice.
  9. Had some rounds that acted like very light powder charges, several in a couple of matches, case lube that I didn’t let dry fully was the only thing I could trace the problem to. With the same powder, primers, bullets, brass and press haven’t had another problem. john
  10. Hornady one shot will cause near squibs if you don’t let it dry fully before loading. John
  11. Flat nose bullets work ok, round nose is best though.
  12. NOE 360-150 RN or Lee 358-150 1R. Neither of these bullets have a shoulder ahead of the crimp groove, and with a roll crimp they should drop right in the cylinder.
