    Glocked or Bulged Brass

    I do not think you need to do anything special with 9mm Glock brass. I run range pickup 9mm thru a standard Lee sizing/depriming die and finish with a Lee Factory Crimp Die on my Dillon 650. No problems at all shooting thru my CZ Shadow.
  2. No problems with Federal SPP supply in Australia. I have bought 5000 three times this year. The price is also reasonable for Australia too; $59/1000. Last year they went up to $70/1000. AU$59 = US$45. All things are relative tho. I suppose you don't think your pricing is so bad now right ?

    2018 powder scale recommendations ?

    These Gemini-20 cheap scales work well and mine is still going after 2 years; https://www.amazon.com/American-Weigh-GEMINI-20-Portable-MilliGram/dp/B0012TDNAM/ref=sr_1_8?ie=UTF8&qid=1525349460&sr=8-8&keywords=aws+scale All electronic scales slowly drift so calibrate it each time with the 2 x 10g weights included. Note it will run down the batteries if left in the unit. Once I worked this out my current set has lasted over 12 months.

    ring on nose of Xtreme 147gr 9mm

    I had this with a Dillon seating die on my 650. A Lee seating die fixed it.

    CZ Shadows 2 is coming

    I wont mention that I shot a friends Shadow 2 on Sunday. Actually, 3 people offered. (ducks and hides). I think the trigger on my Shadow Australia is a little better but the extra weight on the front did make the follow up shoots feel faster.

    CZ Shadows 2 is coming

    I have heard numbers between 1500 and 3000 Shadow 2 per month coming off the new production line. The machining is noticeably sharper than the Shadows including the Oranges. 100 per month for the US does seem a little low.

    Shadow 2 msrp

    I have Shadow Australia which is similar to the Canadian Shadow Mate. It was AU$1650 (US$1265) with 4 x 10 round mags so thanks to the Canucks for paying for the development of my gun

    CZ Shadows 2 is coming

    60 Urban Greys arrived in Australia in October and were all sold. 100 blacks (I think the factory calls them blues) are sitting in customs now, all sold. I believe another shipment of 100 blacks is due before Christmas, 60% sold. How long would 260 pistols last in the US ?

    Shadow 2 msrp

    Surely the comparison should be with the Stock III Xtreme. Is there really much difference ? Australian RRP; with 2 x 10 round mags AU$1549 (US$1190) with 4 x 10 round mags AU$1699 (US$1305)

    CZ Shadows 2 is coming

    Why not use the new Race Master insert (http://www.doublealpha.biz/rm-holster-insert-block) for the Shadow 2 that DAA have already released. Ooh, new Alpha-X holster; http://www.doublealpha.biz/alpha-x-holster .

    CZ Shadows 2 is coming

    Perhaps the urban greys use a coating from a different manufacturer ? Odd that they did not sort this out much earlier.

    The first shipment of 60 production Shadow 2 have arrived in Australia. Only Urban Grey in this shipment. AU$1699 (US$1295) with 4 mags or AU$1549 (US$1180) with 2 mags. All 10 round mags here. .
