  1. Appreciate responses...I’ve got little one #2 on way going into next year so I know I need to find time to reduce reloading to allow for same practice level. I can’t see leaving my brass behind at range but I may supplement with those already swaged processed you mentioned above.
  2. Currently set up with 650 with MBF. Only reload 9mm. Main hang ups involve primer seating failure due to crimped/ringers, but it’s enough to get you out of groove and can be aggravating. Used range brass and 3 lots of cleaned (supposedly sorted) brass from 2 companies this year. Everything was either wet tumbled or ultrasonic cleaned. Looking at reducing time spent pulling then handle this upcoming year. However I’m unsure if the move up to a 1050/1100 resolve my issues as It looks like different opinions of Swager station and effectiveness on pocket problems. With the 650 I can feel the issue and have avoided any booms even with the federal primers I use. With thoughts of also adding automation it seems most add processing to the routine. I really don’t want to add that extra time even if I'm not pulling the handle. Looking for opinions from those who have been in similar circumstance and if they made the jump. Will the time savings I’m wanting be realistic or will I just be saving arm some and spending time saved on extra processing/brass cleaning methods/automation issues?
  3. I called last week to get on the list and was told November. I called this week thinking I’d just go ahead and get the 1050 as I want to automate also this off-season and it was recommended to me to just wait for the 1100 and I was given December time frame.
  4. I will take both invctus shell carrier s please send address so l can send you a check, thanks. John Blachniak

  5. Had my first SF since January. If you shoot competition you will most likely need recoil spring upgrades unless you find factory ammo you like. Walther tests using White box and heavier hollowpoints. Walther customer service is good and helped me out early on. There has been a few SFs for sale on this forum for $1100-$1200 already. Granted that’s still more than the sig and I can’t speak to Sig upgrade costs.Walther has offered a great contingency program the last few years for IDPA and USPSA competitions also. For example, a 1st SSP Master win at qualifying match pays $1000. The SF allows you to shoot SSP, ESP, Carry Optics and Production. Trigger upgrades on then SF are simple. Springco is the go to on this right now. $20 worth of springs and good to go if you just want weight decrease from stock. Call and ask for Alan if you need help. Easy upgrade route on recoil springs would also be Springco. You will need to take measurement of your guide rod notch on take down lever as there can be slight differences. Other option is ZR Tactical rod and you drill the hole and select flat wire spring of your choice. Or call Walther and get reduced captured version. $80-$110 depending on option. Earls Repair service has SF parts available also. So if you were to experiment you could have spare parts on hand ahead of time. Grip screws, Extractor, Safety Plungers, Barrels etc. they ship fast also. Walthers top shooter keeps his gun stock and is competing at the highest level and I’m sure Sig does also. Neither is a magic wand that will take place of practice and I’m sure side by side you could find advantages/disadvantages to both.
  6. Mine increased from a 4 at the end of 2018 to a 7 last month. I reload and shoot coated bullets and on pace for most shooting I’ve done since I started reloading in 2013. These numbers are way below a industrial environment but in an effort to reduce the trend i now keep a stock of dLead wipes in my range bag and by my door exiting my reloading room to use before I go wash my hands, along with more cautious approach to on range eating/drinking. Also need to think about those around you especially children to make sure everyone is informed.
  7. Poly Q5 will eat anything with factory setup no matter bullet size and any Pf from 128-140(probably higher) in my experience. Q5 Sf on other hand needs some competition refinement. Everyone I have talked to since gun came out in January and I got mine has had some issue usually FTE. Most cases have been with reloaded ammo that “works fine” in other guns including poly Q5. My fix was a 13lb Wilson flat wire on a ZR tactical PPQ guide rod with 1/8” hole drilled in back. Running uncapatured like this may be the reason I have a slight chip on muzzle end of frame that guide rod/spring sits on so decide for your self if it’s worth it. I have had this setup since March and have run 147,135 and now 125 Blue Bullets in same PF range. Model Gun: Q5 SF Bullet Weight: 125gr BlueBullets Power Factor: 134-136 Encountering Issues: None Recoil Spring: ZR Tactical
  8. A friend drove up last year on Thursday and got in just taking a chance and was able to shoot fri/sat....seems like there was some bad weather on East coast that prevented people from coming.
  9. Have you ever listened to a podcast about USPSA and not heard complaints about rules? I personally like both despite flaws that exist in each, including this confusion over “Worlds” slot distributions.
  10. Anyone get emails today? Sitting with 19 with no word. However, looks like some are squading tomorrow with 19 according to FB posts.
  11. So I recently ran out of Liquid Grip and decided to try Pro Grip. Very first practice session last week my grip is covered in residue. Liquid grip never did that for me in the last 2 years of using it on variety of grip texture. Residue doesn’t matter to me though so I’m going to keep testing the Pro Grip now as initial grip impression was good. They are cheap enough, test them all or try a friends.
  12. Call Bill @MasterTac .thats a pretty crunch time limit but good option for SF holster may be worth a shot
