Calls Shots

Calls Shots (8/11)

  1. I like the Shockbottle hundo gauges... The original... I've used mine for many years and it works perfectly with the MTM boxes... I load the hundo gause... Lift it up to make sure all the cartridges lay flat... Then sight down the top of th gauge to make sure all the primers are flat... Works great! I also have an intermediate flip tray (that I think the Shockbottle guys make) that makes it easy to move the bullets from the hundo to a box... Load hundo... flip to intermediate tray... flip to MTM box...
  2. Yes, I bought some for our range. Look under the Contact Us section at the bottom of his web site and send him an email...
  3. I did the same on my two 1050's... I run two springs.
  4. I've had trouble with the firing pin channel filling up with carbon in the past... Sometimes you can see the extractor spaced away from the flat spot on the bolt where it is supposed to rest... I clean my bolt before every match... I remove the firing pin and squirt some Hoppe's 9 in the channel... Clean the rest of the bolt, then squirt a bit more down the channel... and blow it out with compressed air... I cover the two holes in the bolt with my fingers so most of the air comes out of the firing pin area. I also run a 1/16" drill bit through the firing pin hole in the bolt every time I clean it... Seems to help. I know 1/16" isn't the correct size... It's a little bit smaller... Not sure what the correct size actually is.
  5. If you press any of the front buttons on an AMG timer it will stop picking up additional shots... It helps eliminating any future shots from registering... It's useful when you are runnibg a 22 or PCC in one bay and the shooter in the next bay is shooting an Open gun... The only possible downside would be if the shooter decided to take another shot after you have pressed one of the buttons to stop picking up any shots. If you look at the front of an AMG timer, you can see the horizontal bar moving up and down when the timer is actively listening for shots... Press one of the front buttons and the timer stops scanning for shots... The bar stops moving... Kind of like the Cylons in Battlestar Gallacta...
  6. You could get a pair of ballistic glasses with the prescription that your readers have. I use the HD Gold glasses... Brian is very easy to work with... I have progressive lenses, not full readers.
  7. I purchased an FM9 bolt several months ago... Had trouble with the firing pin jamming... Sort of the opposite problem you two are having... Called FM and sent it back to them... Received a completely different updated bolt... The new bolt still has the small ball point pen style firing pen spring... Not sure why FM uses a non-standard firing pin spring... or why they don't machine the bolt internals to take the standard size springs... I'm using the replacement bolt and no issues so far. I've heard that @Maxamundouses FM9 bolts and he doesn't seem to have any trouble with them...
  8. I remember one of Max's Instagram posts mentioning a ridge inside the FM9 lower. He filed it down so he could load/reload magazines faster.
  9. Thanks, Eugene... That would be great! I have been getting bye with 11 tablets for six and eight stage matches by gathering all the tablets up during the lunch break and recharging them... We are planning to run a 10 stage State match in the future... Plus they are thinking about running the match straight through and eating after the day's shooting... And... It gets really hot down here, so I want a better battery plan. Lots of ranges down here borrow a second set of tablets and swap them out when the battery power gets low... I'd rather avoid that if possible... I've done it, but I'd rather not. Spare power banks simplify the charging process... Just plug them in and go.
  10. Missed the sale by one day... https://www.amazon.com/GETIHU-Portable-High-Speed-Flashlight-Compatible/dp/B07CZCV8FC/ Have been testing this GETIHU 10000mAh portable charger... Seems to work well and has an LED that displays the amount of available power... Do you have any experience with these chargers? I like the Anker brand... The documents say their charger displays the amount of power, but doesn't show an image of it... Do you have one of the Anker units?
  11. I understand that he has some orders held up waiting for a part that he does not make. His online email form always worked for me.
  12. Was using Ruger clear factory mags with Eley standard velocity ammo for matches... Using TK Doubles with CCI Standard Velocity ammo for practice... I assumed the Eley was better ammo, but I had more jams with it... Changed to the CCI Std Velocity ammo after a jam in a match and it was much better... Used the CCI for another match and it continued to work well. Thought about changing to the TK Double mags along with the CCI ammo during the match... Didn't want to have to remember to flip here and swap the mag out there... Simpler to keep using my Ruger clear mags as long as they continue to work.
  13. That's a good idea... Better to keep the tablets charged up from the start... Thanks!
