    Hodgdon Titegroup vs VV N320 for 9mm

    No problems with N320 metering in my 650. I use 2 scales and weigh 10 charges each. No variation.

    9mm 1911 for Competition Purposes?

    Pay attention to what others are shooting. Don't buy a boxed 1911 and expect it to be 100% out of the box. You're gonna have to tinker and diagnose sometimes. Best bet is a used Les Baer or a STI Trojan. If you want 100%, shoot a Glock but don't screw with it. Just my opinion. 1911 and 2011s have a learning curve.

    Guga Ribas mag pouches

    Will Guga Ribas mag pouches fit on a Double Alpha belt? I am wondering because the Double Alpha belt are thicker than the norm.

    2011 Ambi Low Ride Safety

    I use the Gunsite low mounted thumb safety. Fit 2. You never know when you might need a spare.
  8. Don't forget to oil the gun profusely. I used Mobile One. I belong to the camp that believes in using alot of oil on 1911s. I have had feed jams because I didn't use enough oil on a newer STI. Lowered the recoil spring wt and actually oiled it very well. Problem solved. New mag springs can put alot of upward tension on the slide, slowing it down, inducing FTFs. A new gun and new mags have break in periods. Leave new mags fully loaded for several days.

    Right side mag release in a limited 2011

    I put the Mitchells right side release in my single stack and my edge. I have small hands. It works better for me. Pricey though. Worth every penny in my opinion. $165+
  10. Does the Mr. Bullet feeder work well with coated bullets? .356 diameter?

    Chrono distance

  12. How far away should the chrono be when shooting during load development?

    Stock STI.

    I got a Brazo's tuned Edge and I couldn't be happier. Has been 100% reliable.

    Micrometer seating die

    To take full advantage of the Redding competition pro seater you should get the tool head clamp kit from uniquetech. Tool head movement increases OAL variances. I found the best results with the pro seater, tool head clamp kit, Montana Gold FMJ bullets, same head stamped brass, and a slower but consistent pull on the press handle. OAL of +- .002. BUT it makes no difference for the uspsa competition shooter. This drive to reduce OAL variances will drive you to drink too.
  15. Yes. This is often the cause.
