  1. My opinion... Having shot plenty of big matches and run a few too and being, generally, a top 10-20% shooter, I personally prefer an order of finish prize table. However, I also completely understand why many sponsors prefer the random draw distribution of stuff. Sponsors often get much more mileage out of giving stuff to shooters who aren't winning the matches.
  2. Very handy idea and cool of you to share. There are so many great solutions around!
  3. There's lots of voodoo out there. Likely that the variables are not a terrible idea, but maybe not all that helpful either. Nothing wrong with trying and seeing if they work for you though. If it feels good to you and the gun runs well, go with it. If not, ...
  4. Should not be happening. Would only occur if the lip and ledge that interface are damaged. New insert should fix you right up unless the actual metal portion of the magwell has been fairly severely damaged...

    Scope help

    Steiner 1-4 P4Xi is a solid scope for just a little more money. Its not just about the "X's", gotta be able to see clearly through the glass for X's to matter.
  6. Fastest powders with heaviest bullets are the recipes that we generally perceive to have lowest felt recoil... So, you can go to heavier projectiles, 185gr, 200gr, etc. You can also look at other fast powders like Solo 1000, Ramshot Comp, etc. Caveat - heavy for bullets with fast for caliber powders can spell kaboom if not managed carefully. Your longer OAL's will help to some degree...
  7. Seems that you should be in the correct neighborhood for sure. The snag with that projectile profile in general is that the ogive is relatively short and you reach the full diameter fairly quickly from the tip of the bullet. Thats what limits your OAL. A more standard round nose profile has a longer taper from the bullet tip to the full diameter portion of the bullet and can be seated out further to allow greater OAL options.

    Scope help

    Pretty solid for the money, but better glass 1-4 can be had for just a little more cash...
  9. AR Gold also left off list and excellent! Of the few you mentioned, agree that CE is nicest feel.
  10. Looks like some kind of cross between a Miculek and Lantac... It has no "up" ports though...???
  11. Chris at Ready Tactical has excellent IDPA-legal holsters!
  12. It is a shame that this type of stuff is so challenging, especially for revo... I keep thinking about giving it a try, but there are just so many little nuances that make it even harder than it has to be... A while back I got to watch Hopalong run a 625 in a few local USPSA matches in North MS and it was pretty impressive considering that he was loading 3-4 times as much as anybody else. Moons that fit brass well and LOTS of practice seem to the ticket! ...once you figure out what's actually legal for carriers...
  13. Agree that 17-18# MS is about right for the average competition gun. Also agree that it sounds as though something is wrong. Was the gun recently coated and maybe some coating or other debris got inside the MSH causing extra friction? Does it actually have proper MS cap and such? 12-15# on the recoil spring depending on how light the ammo is that you're planning to run...
  14. I greatly prefer the look of the button-up "polo", but its hard to argue with the adjustability of the zipper. You didnt ask about collar or not, but I would also advocate for having an actual collar vs some of the styles that are mostly without these days; it provides a little more sun protection for the back of the neck.
  15. Right, but seems that it would've been a bit more succinct to say, "Gaming a classifier is NEVER grounds for DQ."
  16. Sadly, not a very definitive answer. IMO, should have been answered more definitively based on the facts that were shared by OP. Then he could've added other info. Most important detail being that the simple act of tanking a classifier(whether intentional or not) isn't a DQ-able offense.
  17. The Vortex Gen2 has been VERY well received! Its a few ounces lighter than the original. Price is definitely right! Don't think you would be greatly disappointed with any of the options you suggest. I would add the Khales K16i to your list as well because they are awesome and not any more expensive than others you included. I would suggest trying as many options as you can find around your range. Check out the different feel between FFP and SFP reticle. IMO, 8x is not needed at all until you get over 300-400 yes. What you really need is clarity and light-gathering so you can see your target when its time to see it.
  18. This is truly some of the best advice in the thread so far. RM should be notified of any DQ. All DQ's should be backed up with actual rule numbers and RM should agree with stated reasoning. RO was a complete turd in this case.
  19. Did you notice that he already had an optic on the gun...? Primary issue would be fitting the box if being used on a CO setup...

    Nickel Brass

    Anybody that has too much, I will take it off your hands.

    Nickel Brass

    I always use nickel cases for major match ammo if possible. I "think" it has a slightly harder surface which has a lower coefficient of friction and might feed a little better...maybe...
