  1. I use the Lyman digital gauge (and Loctite, too). Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. I started with a 329PD in IDPA and USPSA last year to see if I like revolver for competition (just like you). GO for it! IDPA is limited to 6 shots and it's a great hoot! The speedloaders drove me nuts (I used HKS) and I really fumbled with reloads on the clock. My loads were Trail Boss under 240 LSWC. I would definitely suggest plated or coated to keep the amount of smoke down when shooting fast. Ultimately I decided on a 625JM with moonclips after figuring out I really liked the challenge of revolvers. My 329 was definitely smoother than the 625 was out of the box. And you definitely know you are not going to win the whole match with a revolver so it takes the angst out of it, the measure of success is how much fun you have and how you feel you improve. Plus it is fun when you do beat a bottom loader though I had a few matches where I finished dead last, but really didn't care. Enjoy yourself!!!
  3. Make sure the belt goes thru the loops: 8.4 Belts Belts may be no wider than 1 3⁄4 inches or thicker than 5/16 inches and must pass through a minimum of all but two of the pant loops. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Yikes! 27 DPP’s between four people? Wow! I should have mentioned in my post the GSSF Gen 5 Glock is a 19. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. How long have you used the Holosun? I have a Delta Point Pro on a Gen 5 MOS and use it for Carry Optics in IDPA and USPSA plus bowling pin matches and it has been totally awesome but dang it’s expensive. Like what the OP is contemplating I did use my GSSF certificate for a Blue Label Gen 5 MOS with thoughts of using it in Compact Carry in IDPA and potentially getting a red dot for Carry Optics. I’m intrigued by the Holosun.
  6. If you are talking CO in IDPA it might be the cat’s meow! You’re limited to ten rounds in IDPA. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. You might want to look at Dawson. I have a set on an M&P. https://dawsonprecision.com/gun-sights/glock/glock-adjustable-sets/ Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. I took my JM wood grips off the day I got them. Just didn’t feel right. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. I use the X-Frame grip on my 625-8. No issues. I have large hands, though. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. If you have a S&W with interchangeable front sights you can change it yourself with no tools. I just did mine with a fiber optic 0.100” wide one from Dawson Precision in less than a minute. I also changed the rear sight blade to a Weigand. That’s not for the timid. Launched the little windage adjustment plunger and springs a few times and they are hard to find in the floor. The blade had to be filed to fit the slot and the adjustment screw head outside circumference had to be filed, too. Read a lot of posts about them having wiggles when installed. Absolutely no wiggles in mine. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. I have a pre-Model 10 with a 5” barrel that was my great-grandfather’s service revolver on the Rapid City Police Department Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    S&W 625JM

    They load better than the SWC but still hang up on the case mouth. I’m sending the cylinder to TK Custom tomorrow to get chamfered. I’m going to also look for different load data with WST. I shot a two stage USPSA match tonight. Each stage was best 24 so good reloading practice. Reloading on the clock is definitely not any faster than practice. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    S&W 625JM

    I agree they look short but it’s Hodgdon’s data length of 1.200”. When I cranked out the first one I was puzzled and double checked the website and also hard copy data from Hodgdon. I even searched and found others questioning the OAL of that data here and on other forums. If the velocity is higher than I need I’m going to look at increasing the OAL as a means of reducing velocity. All Hodgdon data for 230 has the same OAL. They don’t have data for Unique but I do use it a lot in 44 Special. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    S&W 625JM

    I went with WST. Was using Clays (original made in Australia) with the 200’s. Federal primers. I might also try Trail Boss. Mainly going to use this in IDPA (PF-155) but it’s inaugural match will be USPSA (PF-165). When the snow melts and it gets warmer I will chronograph my load (starting load of 4.0 grains) to see where it’s at PF wise. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    S&W 625JM

    I should also add that the 200 grain lead SWC shown in the moonclips do NOT feed well in the 625. Great in a 1911 but not 625. I’ve tried sample 230 grain coated RN’s from SNS, Black Bullet and Blue Bullet and am going to settle on Blue Bullet. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
