  1. I finished up my 4# can of Titegroup which I use for both my H-K VP9 pistol and JP GMR-13 PCC. I used 3.8 gr Titegroup and 124 JHP bullets for both loads. In my area there is no pistol powder to be found but I did buy a 4# can of Longshot. I doesn't look like I'll be able to use the same load for both guns. Here's my chrono results for the JP. 4.9 gr. Longshot = 1159 fps and 144 power factor. 4.7 = 1130 fps and 140 PF, 4.5 = 1050 and 130 PF. My loaded length is 1.12". I use pick-up brass which tends to give poor Extreme Spread and Standard Deviation numbers.
  2. I can't help with 115s but with 124s and 3.7 TG I'm getting 1088 fps = 135 PF through a JP GMR-13 @ 14.5".
  3. I joined USPSA in 1994 and was very active for about 16 years. I shot a sectional match in 2004 and totally screwed it up. Much to my surprise the next week I received a trophy for High Super Senior. In 2010 I stopped shooting USPSA and went to other shooting sports. I bought a JP PCC in 2017 and tried USPSA again. I shot a few matches and was classified as a "B" shooter. I had sold all of my old race guns and recently modded my carry pistol to a Carry Optics gun. I'm (Slow) but back!
  4. No one has replied but I would say it is a decent time. A good draw would be about 1 second, .2 second split on each double would be good for a .45 with no comp. Add .5 for each transition and you're at 4 seconds.
  5. 7.8 of N350 gave me 1400 PFS with 125 gr bullets with my 9/23. Should be similar with 38 Super
  6. I went from when everybody shot a 1911 .45 single stack to Open (Also a 1911 Single stack with a comp). Did Limited followed by Limited 10, just for fun got classified in Revolver. Left USPSA for 3-Gun. Bought a PCC and discovered I could shoot it in USPSA. Got a B classification in PCC. Recently shot Production twice and decided it sucked. Just shot my first Carry Optic match. As you might guess, I'm a veteran Super Senior.
  7. This data is from my 9 x 23 but should be close for 38 SC. 7.8 gr N350= 1409 FPS, 8.2 N350 = 1424
  8. Steel shooting is all about speed. If the sights are anywhere on the target pull the trigger and move on. Don't wait to hear to "gong".
  9. Titegroup would be my choice but hard to find, N320 is very good but more expensive N350 would not be my choice for 9 mm but I did try it for 9 x 23 Major loads.
  10. I've been a serious 3-Gun shooter in the past and reloaded shotgun rounds. Buckshot was rarely required for a stage and I decided not to reload buckshot. I still have some factory loads in stock and haven't used them in 10 years. I did have a special reload for spinners.
  11. I've been shooting ARs in competition for 25 years, primarily 3 Gun where fast double taps can be required. I used lightweight bolt carriers but now, shooting PRS type matches, use a standard weight carrier. If you're looking for parts you might check out EGW in Quakertown https://www.egwguns.com/ I have also have a lightly used JP lightweight carrier if your interested in going that route.
  12. I've had a similar experience. With light 3.5 loads my H-K VP9 was faster then my JP GMR 13. With heavier 3.8 loads, the JP was faster.
  13. I shot an AR-15 in USPSA Multi-Gun for several years and now frequently shoot a PCC in USPSA. Safety is always on at the start and never re-engaged. I'm now shooting Some PRS with a Tikka bolt gun and local AR PRS type matches. The bolt gun is required to have the bolt open when changing positions, the AR is required to have safety on when changing positions.
  14. I run the TF 41 extensions and download to 40 so I can seat a mag with a closed bolt.
  15. I still have the magwell shown but replaced it with a Techwell. I don't know about the Odin Works mag release.
  16. Its an Odin AR part. I drilled and tapped the original mag release.
  17. I've been running C-Mores for 25 years on pistols and rifles. The dot stays in the center when adjusted. On my JP I run it in the most forward position attached directly to the rail and have no issues.
  18. I'm a Super Senior with classifications in Open, Limited, Limited 10, Revolver, and now PCC. I've sold all of my competition pistols but have a HK VP9 I like to shoot. I would enter in Limited Minor so I can use my existing gear and not worry about how I finish.
  19. In my JP GMR-13, I'm running 124 JHP bullets with 3.7 gr Titegroup for 129 PF or 3.8 @ 135 PF. I use the hotter load for KD steel.
  20. In my 14.5" JP GMR-13 I run 3.7 Titegroup and get 1042 fps or 129 PF. I up it to 3.8 for knock down steel.
  21. Parallax is not dependent on magnification. Set it for distance and check by moving your eye to see if the reticle stays on target. The distance shown on the parallax knob may not be exact.
  22. I've had a torn bicep for 2 years and it has not affected my shooting. Overtime it has, to some extent, slowly healing itself.
  23. You can shoot 9 x 23 in a Super barrel but I don't recommend it. Its obsolete and brass is difficult or impossible to find. I shot it for years and have a 95 gr. steel load if interested.
  24. I've been a Super Senior for 15 years (You used to only need to be 60). I try to hit the gym 3 days a week and alternate between the Concept 2 rowing machine and an Espresso bike. I do 5000 meters on the rowing machine and somewhere between 5 and 8 miles on the bike. I don't do much weight training but do dead lifts, pull downs, and chest press on a machine to hit the muscles not worked with the rower. Back in the day, I kept a tennis ball in the car to squeeze at traffic lights.
