  1. Sent mine back. Just TOO finicky. If it had been a $12 item, I still would have been disappointed in its performance.
  2. Joe and Kamala want to NFA big mags and semi-autos. That does not bode well for the sport, regardless of ammo supplies. I hope the Trump haters are happy now.
  3. Yes, I'm very special. Through a moderate mixup on my part, I had an old(er) account here and I didn't remember creating it. Now, I've realized the error and am using just one account. Dillon CS did come through and sent me a new measure AFTER I had sent my old measure in to them at my expense. Up until now, I have had no complaints about Dillon support.
  4. I don't know if the aluminum version worth that much more. I have a poly trigger on my 2.0 compact and it's very nice. It's a nice improvement over the stock configuration.
  5. The FSS definitely reduces both pre-travel and over travel. Big difference IMHO. The Competition kit makes a very nice trigger though, especially with the Apex trigger shoe It reduces pretravel and over travel some but not as much as the FSS. It's entirely shootable though.. I prefer the aluminum triggers personally. I like the contour and I have myself convinced that the trigger break is a bit crisper as compared to the poly triggers. If you want to spend the $$$$, the FSS is very, very good. But the Comp kit won't be a hindrance at all. I am
  6. I got a chance to do a little work on the M&P today. 1) Checked Apex barrel fit. The 2lbs force they recommend to "nudge" the slide into battery after final fitting was closer to 5lbs according to the trigger pull gauge I hung on the back of the slide. Did a little more fllling on the barrel and got it to 2lbs. 2) Installed Apex FRE. 3) I put a slight angle on the blunt nosed factory ejector. I don't believe the factory contour gave the empty cases any reason to kick outwards. In fact, to my eye anyway, the ejector was angled slightly INWARDS.
  7. New to me 1.0 CORE. Bought it used. Advertised as lightly used. (It appears that way.) Apex FSS Apex SDI barrel Leupold DPP and Leupy plate Occasionally, about once or twice per 100, I'll get a malfunction where the fired case gets pinched in the ejection port and causes a stoppage. I tried a 13 lb Glock flatwire recoil spring this AM on a captured rod. It doesn't seem to make much difference, malfunction wise. I'm leery of running it in a match right now as the malf can be very slow to clear. I didn't bring along my Torx wrench to remove the DP
  8. Now that I've sent the busted measure in, on my dime, I get an email telling me a replacement is on the way. I'm not too very damn very impressed with Dillon CS right now.
  9. That's what I thought would happen. I have to ship my busted measure to them, on my dime, then they'll send me a replacement measure. Not sure why. It's not repairable. Scavenge some parts off of it is all. I sent pics to indicate what broke where but nope. Send it in.
  10. The powder measure casting broke at the very bottom of the measure where it clamps on the expander die. I noticed I wasn't getting much if any belling on the cases and the measure was hopping around noticeably. Hopefully Dillon responds quickly to my email.
  11. Uniquetek has a tip for customizing seating stems: Uniquetek Tip #10 I used my wife's industrial grade "Little Princess" hot glue gun for this project. 3 minute job once you have all the tools rounded up. I think it has improved consistency some.
  12. Apparently it's a sensitive subject. Maybe because too many of us see too many "Shoot and scoot" shooters?
  13. It's been awhile since I've read the rules, but I'm betting your guns would be legal in some division. Jump on in. Any trigger time is good time, especially when the range is local to you.
  14. Measuring a VERY small sample of my "Failure to plunk" rounds (20 total), I find no one particular dimension as the cause for failure. I measured OAL, case mouth dia., case length and max case diameter. Nothing stood out. However, 7 of the failed cases were CBC. 4 were FC and rest were 2 or less. The major brands like Win or RP were 2 and 1 respectively. Upon closer inspection all of the failed cases were bulged or had the "swayback" in the case behind the bullet. So it appears to me that CBC brass is more prone to this bulge thing. Some case
