    IDPA Vest

    The Armadillo vest should not be allowed (been saying that for years, since they first came out), too stiff and not something that you would wear off the range. I wear a Woolrich IDPA vest. Too bad that they aren't made anymore.
  2. This^^^^^^^^^ At at PPC match, we had a guy who used 2 loads. 7 and 15 yards and 25 and 50 yards. The powder charges were 3.0gr and 1.7gr. He shot the 7 and 15, shot the 25 and then proceeded to to shoot the 50. When we went down to score his target was clean (I was scoring his targets). I turned around and you could see the impact marks in the ground. From that day he quit using 2 loads.
  3. I used to wear rain gear, but at the end of the day I was wet from sweat and had started to smell. I'd sooner get wet. That's just me. YMMV.
  4. Maybe add a little more to the tumbling media.
  5. Avoid AMERC just crap. Federal are crimping a number of the loads now, especially NT.
  6. That die is made by Lee for EGW. They also make a 4S&W undersize die.
  7. Are you running lead bullets?
  8. No, because the used Bounce dryer sheets hold the wax as well as the dust. It just works.
  9. I lube mine while they are tumbling. I squirt a mix of Nu Finish paste car wax and mineral spirits (25%/75%) into the tumbling media, running for 15 - 20 mins and then add the brass. Once cleaned, they are ready for loading and size easier.
  10. Just pick up an air pump from a tropical fish store, a cheap unit, and rubber band it to the powder hopper.
  11. They all went black and wouldn't reboot. The batteries were new.
  12. I, too, have asbestos hands, and the cylinder and forcing will get very hot under competition conditions when using TG.
