  1. 160 Bayou's are very soft shooting 2.8TG is almost cheating LOL They thump large poppers down well, even with slightly low hits They group extremely well in my guns etc etc.
  2. Yes you can use it I run 11 or 12 lbs 1911 springs in my 40's Wolff springs Have it typed under the heading. 45 1911 colt etc etc etc Then sometimes it will say also for 9/38 super But those 1911 springs will work in any 1911 as long as the length is correct. (Govt, commander, officer etc) you should also check for spring bind. Insert spring on the guide rod and compress GR head all the way to the dust cover. If it stops short, cut a coil at a time until it hits the dust cover
  3. 3.0 grs e3 145rn Bayou Fed app Co 1.150 Pf 131 5" 627
  4. Over the years I've had accuracy issues with plated with a bunch of different crimp settings and RMR Jacketed prices are great . Then add their and Everglades specials just about weekly and you save a bunch more. Any how I'm slowly standardizing on FMJ. Tonight shot the 929 revo and the 125 FMJ shot well out of that . It's winter here so I don't shoot anything with amazing groups when my hands are cold in 28 degree weather. Warmest day in 4 or5 so went out to try a 80 (ie 10 monclips) Looking more and more like I'm leaning on standardizing on 124 FMJ. Fortunately the RMR and EG load and shoot the same, so who ever has bullets in stock when I need them or a sale going LOL
  5. I agree Bought aprox 6k from them. Then the price shipping change, I'm done with them. Then with all the bs about sizing and extra steps I don't have to do with the other guys. I think it's the softer lead Brazos uses that causes problems that I don't have with Bayou or blues. FWIW
  6. They pulled a Wally world marketing ploy. Come in cheap, drive the competition out , then raise prices to what the normal is. Theory is by then you'll just keep buying from them! Hytek is hytek, I'm staying with the guys who supported the sport and have kept their prices consistent Bayou, bbi , blues etc. FWIW
  7. Per their website they're also the softest lead.
  8. 3.9 Clay's Australian if you have it 230 rn 1.250 col That's a major load on my 625
  9. It's the time of year to work loads up right!!! LOL I'm down to my last 2-3lbs of Clays Australian Been using a lot of e3 for 9mm and 40 major loads A few years ago I believe I remember some of y'all where using Clays recipes as a start for e3 I've done that with 9mm and 40 but just double checking Been using 3.8grs Clays with a 230 Bayou, CCI LPP, col1.250ish So my thought is 3.8grs of e3 with the 230 as a start and then chrono up as needed from there. Anyone with chrono results on e3 and 230 coated bullets I'd appreciate your input. Thanks y'all
  10. The division is problematic mostly because it takes a lot more effort, i.e. practice, to be good with a revolver. My un scientific research tells me that the majority of guys who are b,c and d shooters and like revolvers have more fun shooting their autos cause they have less misses, no shoots and missed steel with the auto than the revo. A few years ago I shot revo a bunch, even though there was little competition and made Master. Even at the sectional and area level there was only 5-8 people shooting revo. So understand that you will be the minority and keep encouraging others. in short, rule changes aren't going to breathe life into revo. Guys like you who want to shoot it and do will!! Good fortune and keep the cylinder turning!!!
  11. That's what I was thinking and some polite draw type filing, to just take the high spots off
  12. We can fix that for you, first I'll square up the opening to the slide, then I'll most likely use an mos type plate and re configure, the mounting holes on the slide. Then adjust the plate to fit your opening So the plate I'll make will fit the opening you have once it's squared up it'll have bosses for the sight along with the screw holes for the sight the but is, the mounting holes of the plate to the slide may not be where glocks mos plates holes might be. We're a production machine shop, though small 3 guys! We do a fair amount of slide work locally Agape Manufacturing and I'm on here (Benos) a lot If we can't fix it it'll be no charge and I'll ship it back without any further cutting to it. 150-200 bucks, may or may not be worth that to you I think brownells sells precut slide for less than that but IIRC there for RMR cuts
  13. Hole in a piece of tape Pull tape after about 30 minutes
  14. Sarge I spot grit some of mine. Cut a hole size you like. Place it where you want apply thin coat of epoxy and grit. Done
  15. Not for us, USPSA But For general users it'll be
  16. Innovative Being nighthawk I'm confident it'll work.
  17. 2.8gr TG, 160 bayou, federal spp, 1.150 Or 3.0grs e3, 145 bayou RN, same,same Works in 4 different 627s
  18. I run 200 Bayou's in my major load and 140 Bayou's with the same powder and settings on the press, just change the bullet. The guns I've built, Bedell and Akai limited guns all run both loads with the same spring set up. FWIW
  19. Idps will accept you, 1911and optic in their co divsion.
  20. The answer is!!! 2.4 ozs with the base on 1.4ozs sight only
  21. Got one coming and wondering if anyone knows the weight of the 507c with out the base on it. Obviously going on a C/O gun and want to know what the weight is! thanks in advance for the info
  22. I've owned most of the major builders guns. This is one man's opinion of actual gun building skill, not ornamentation. 1. Bedell or akai 2. Gans or CK 3. Most others Take it fwiw!
