    Rifle Build Help

    I would leave the gas block wide open until you get the gun functioning properly. Once you get the issue resolved, then you adjust the gas block to your specific load. Definitely sounds like a gas issue to me. Did the tube come attached to the gas block or did you do it?
  3. I was always taught to simulate match conditions. Are you reloading empty mags in competition? Dry fire with loaded mags because its the weight and feel of real mags.

    replacing 550c?

    Why even buy a new press? The 550 is capable of handling the round output you are currently loading. Save the money, keep your press and buy more ammo.

    Shotshell carriers

    Try before you buy. If you start shooting 3gun or multigun, a lot of shooters will let you use their equipment. I have the Invictus Practical caddies, Taccom Caddies and a Carbon Arms Backbone 24 on a vest. Each has their benefits and weaknesses. What works for me, might not work or be practical for you.
  6. You took the words right out of my mouth. I do the exact same thing with the exception of the alcohol. I actually drop the loaded rounds back in the tumbler for 10-15 minutes to remove the lube. It's a world of difference with case lube. The machine glides.
  7. 10/16/18 I changed gears the last couple of days. I actually broke out my 3gun gear and started doing some training with my pistol. I put a Vortex Venom 6moa dot on my M&P pro. I really haven't practiced with a pistol in a while. Since I have a 2gun outlaw match coming up next weekend, I decided to practice some draws and reloads. I'm also still getting used to the dot on the pistol, so i need to learn how to find it after my draw. I'm taking a break from Steel Challenge training for the next week or so. I need to decompress from steel challenge training. I was pushing my times after making GM and I noticed that my technique suffered. I know I'm fast enough, So I just need to relax, regroup and take some time away to clear my mind of the bad habits I started doing.
  8. When you're talking about competition shooters, shooting matches, training & practice, 5k is not that many rounds. 3-5k rounds is usually their minimum order. Why don't you start a poll to see how many rounds the average person shoots?

    Texas star

    MGM & Red Stitch are probably the top two companies, but their are a lot of companies that make them. We're getting close to the holidays, I would look for sales or sales with free shipping.

    Removing the bolt weight

    I totally agree. We're talking recoil of a 9mm Carbine, not a 308. I couldn't care less how much my gun recoils as long as it shoots flat, has minimal dot bounce and is consistent in felt recoil with every shot.

    Stiff Ram

    I would send it to Dillon for a tune up/over haul. Since it was sitting for long time, they will clean it and update any outdated parts.

    First Official Match, First DQ

    I talked with seasoned shooter today who was DQ'd yesterday at a level 2 IDPA match. He didn't do anything safety related. He shot the stage, unloaded and showed clear. The stage required the shooter to wear a backpack during the stage. While taking off the backpack, it caught his gun and dislodged it from his holster causing the unloaded gun to fall to the ground. He made a trip to Dairy Queen.
  15. 10/14/18 USPSA Match today at OK Corral. I made some mental mistakes that cost me, but I managed to finish 3rd in PCC and 20th overall.
