    Autocomp ignition issues

    I don't know anything about autocomp, but unburnt powder ussually means too light of a charge, right ?

    Holsters for 8 3/8" S&W?

    I occasionally use a 8 3/8 in competition. The guga won't work, not long enough Stick with the double alpha race master,or other of that style. Works with any length

    Can you be more specific on what part you mean? Do you mean the extractor rod keeps loosening up? If so , you need the proper tool to properly tighten in ( it's reverse thread, btw )

    Round count question

    Whatever the case is, you can always expect it to fail at the biggest match you are shooting that year. That much we can all agree on.

    2 weeks out from nats? Try like 4 days bro! Take out the bent main spring, put in something new like a Bang inc spring , over night it from brownells, or if they cant get in time let me know and i'll send one out via next day Make sure you dont have more then .002 - .003 end shake or so. Make sure the light hits are center of primer, if they are off center it could be a timing issue or a cylinder stop skipping problem. If you're doubting the hammer, just replace it. Get a TK hammer or something and just cross it off your list. Now is not the time for days and days of R&D testing tossing one part here and there with nats so close. I've got tons of extra parts on hand, give me a ring if you want me to pack everything up and send it out.

    How many moon clips and holders do I need?

    Dude did an excellent job, looks great. Though, it's just design based off http://www.speed-e-rack.com/ Best of luck, all.

    I'll play grumpy pessimist this morning. Why bother investing the time and effort, is that 0.1" really gonna make the difference? #itdoesnt

    Well, get what you can afford to start off with, i'd say you should have a minimum of 20 high quality moonclips. TK Custom can hook this up. I used to load enough clips for the whole match, then I realized how much time I wasted after the match at home sitting in boardem loading and unloading 60 moons. Now I just load as I go during the match, it gives me the opportunity to pay attention to each piece of brass and moonclip right before it hits my belt. If a moon is out of whack, grab a new one and go. Once you have a pile of bent clips , repair them and put them back into rotation.

    As far as case length goes. My personal opinion between short, medium and long Colt is - it doesn't matter. I've done back to back testing between short Colt and long Colt in various reload situations and the data was within 0.1 second average. Get the proper reload technique down and practice the hell out of it. That being said, I love my long colts. I've been using the same cases for years and years.
