  1. I called BladeTech last month. They communicated no holsters were being made that were compatible with the RIA 2011 design. Asked about Para similarities, but they said no.
  2. I just finished this 9mm RIA Tac Ultra FS HC, with the help of Hayes Custom Guns for the slide milling. I was under the impression that Blade-Tech made a holster for this pistol, but they emailed me today and said they did not make a holster for this gun. I tend to think one of their holsters should work... The pistol is exclusively for 3-gun. I will not be installing a brake, and don't need DOH for this. Any suggestions for a kydex holster that's high quality for this use? Having a tension adjustment screw would be ideal.
  3. Issue resolved. After cutting coils off the spring with a 3oz buffer and still not getting PMC ammo to lock the bolt, I finally ditched the Seekins adjustable gas block. I could see carbon building up on the gas tube near the block, it was clearly leaking. With a non adjustable block everything cycles fine, back to a regular carbine buffer spring and the ST-T2 buffer, and everything cycles great. At this point I'm thinking of leaving it as is, unless others think I'm really missing something with an adjustable gas block.
  4. The BC gas key is solid and the rings are brand new. The entire RCA BGC is brand new. I will swap in my old Noveske BGC just to make sure that's not the issue.
  5. Photo seems to indicate the hole was centered. I can't move the block further to center due to the shoulder on the barrel. Since I'm running a carbine buffer spring is it a bad idea to cut a couple coils?
  6. This is the first upper I've built, so Im not sure if it is correctly aligned. It appears to my eye to be centered. After 20 rounds I am seeing carbon on the gas tube near the upper receiver.
  7. After 6 years of multigun my 18" Noveske Rogue Hunter upper is shot out. I decided to build an upper with a CMT billet upper, Ballistic Advantage 18" fluted barrel, Seekins adjustable gas block, and low mass RCA BCG, This is mated to the existing Noveske lower (which was very reliable with the 18" intermediate gas barrel) and has a Magpul UBR stock (carbine length), standard carbine buffer spring and Spikes ST-T2 buffer. During assembly I realized the old 18" Noveske barrel was an intermediate gas system, NOT rifle length. The new Ballistic Advantage barrel is a rifle length system and it is short stroking. I opened up the Seekins gas block all the way, swapped in an H buffer and eventually went down to a 3oz buffer. With relatively hot 77gr loads the rifle cycles, but with normal 55gr ammo it short strokes to the point where it rarely grabs the next round. I'd prefer to keep the UBR stock if possible. I read that the JP captured spring buffer system may be a solution, but before I invest that cash I am curious if there's a better solution. Although it is a dedicated competition gun reliability still matters. It seems opening up the gas port may be the other solution, besides converting a rifle length buffer tube. Is there anything else I should consider?
  8. It was the shell plate being too loose. I've not had that issue with 223 and pistol cartridges. Always learning... Thanks for the help!
  9. I'm attempting to reload 308 Win and having a problem seating CCI 200 large rifle primers on my Dillon 550. I bought the Sinclair Primer Pocket Uniformer hoping this would fix the problem. Unfortunately, as pictured, the primers are still not seating to the correct depth. Any ideas what's going wrong here?
  10. First time shooting the He-man and I'm stoked! First time flying to match as well... Any idea on the total round count I should plan on? As well, what is the max number of shotgun shells that could be needed on any given stage? Thanks
  11. As it turns out 1.150 ran perfect. Thanks for the help! Now I need to learn how not to spill 7.5gr HS-6 in those small 9mm cases and all over my Dillon 650...
  12. 1. Those were Federal Match small pistol primers. I also have CCI 500's and 450's. Unfortunately no 400's. 2. The only powder i have is TG and HS6.
  13. Thanks for the feedback. I am still using the factory spring, but have a new 15 pound spring on my bench. Either way it sounds like the bullet is hiitng the lands. I'll shorten to 1.150 and see how that goes.
