    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

    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

    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

    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

    Gomar83, here’s a good woodworking project. This is a moonclip carriers made with a 1x8 ripped to fit the plastic Cabelas ammo carrier and a bunch of 1/2” dowels and a couple of cans of spray paint. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I’ve got it set at about 7 pounds now. I might tweak the adjustment a little bit to see if I can get lighter. I’m using Federal primers. First range session it was 100%. My Lyman trigger pull gauge only goes to 12 pounds and it was way over that from the factory. Definitely much easier in double action. Single action is around a pound and a half.

    I just installed a Miculek spring kit I got from Brownells. Wow! What a difference. I did get any additional strain screw and cut it too short so ended up using the original screw (which was shorter than the new screw) and just not screw it all the way in. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Just a follow up on moonclips. The ones supplied with the gun are made by TK Custom. I also bought a box of four at the gun shop in a S&W box for $10 that are also TK Custom. They work great. The less expensive moonclips are causing issues with binding the cylinder during rotation. When those were stamped there is a ridge of various heights around the stamping that needs to be filed down. About half don’t cause issues and the other half definitely need filing. You get what you pay for. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    The 625JM is ready for moonclips as is and even comes with four in the box. I got 50 moonclips from UniqueTek for $20. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I’m going to use mine mainly for IDPA. Was using a 329 but speedloaders caused me issues. Hoping to use it at the Iowa State championship this summer. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I never shot it with the Miculek. Hogue grips fit me well. Glock ginger grooves are too small so when Gen 5 came out I jumped in and bought two of them so far. So, for me, Glock no grooves but Smiths I go groovy with Hogue. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I have big hands and the Miculek felt a little small and slippery. I’m used to the X-Frame grips since I took them off of a 329PD that usually wears Crimson Trace grips. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Me, too! I just put a Hogue X-Frame grip on mine. I also just ordered the Miculek spring kit from Brownells. Looking forward to seeing what others say. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Can't find legal moon clip holders

    Thanks for the response. I decided to order them. Im sure they won’t be a problem at my local matches just didn’t know about sanctioned matches. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
