  1. What drill are you (or others) using? What level of torque is required? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Great videos. I have about 6k through my Atlas and happy to see how yours held up through 50k. What kydex holster are you using? I’m using a RHT kydex holster and am showing a lot more wear. Like you said, it’s a tool so I’m. It too worried, but I’m curious anyway. Barrel looked excellent. Have you noticed any changes in groupings?
  3. I bought a sample pack of .400 blue bullets and .401 ACMEs. Both we’re acceptable accuracy for our game but .401 significantly more accurate. Minor price difference so I stuck with .401 ACME
  4. I’ve had this happen. It’s a little spooky but a really simple fix. Buy a decent trigger gauge. Test it. Adjust your seat spring (very easy) until you get a level you like and can’t reproduce hammer follow. Then, use the gauge every once in a while to see if the spring tension has changed. If changed, work on the spring again.
  5. I use One Shot and tumble Bayous and ACMEs to get the residue off. 5-8 minutes in corn cob, no coating issues. Helps keep my case gauge clean.
  6. For area matches, I’ve done Area 3 once and Area 4 twice (AR and TX). I wouldn’t hesitate to do either again. I’d suggest looking at some section matches, too. You can shoot them in one day, they are usually cheap, and there are several good ones near your location. I particularly enjoy Iowa Section each year. Minnesota and Wisconsin are nice matches, too.
  7. Just received 9,000 .40 for $231 shipped from AmmoBrass LLC. Very clean. I would order from them again. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Handled one in person at WI Sectional. Figment was great and on par with the beauty of the gun. Waffle top is the best. I wish my gun had that treatment. Carne would be on my short list if I was looking for a new build.
  9. Tried 4.6 - 4.9 of Sport Pistol under 180 Blue Bullets and ACME at 1.185 OAL today. I had the best accuracy with ACME. 4.8 provided great accuracy at 17 yards and well into PF comfort zone. Group and 10 shot data in the pictures for 4.8 grains. There was one outlier shot at 913 FPS. I suspect that has more to do with my loading habits than the powder. YMMV
  10. This! Nats should be 20+ stages, maybe more. Even dummies like me can string together a reasonable performance for 10 stages but our true B class colors come out with a longer test.
  11. I have this problem. Changing the seating stem seemed to help - but I see you’ve tried that. I think it may have something to do with the underside die but I’d hate to give that up. Following to see what you find as a solution.
  12. Orlando. Universal Shooting is a little over an hour south of Orlando. I’m not a fan of the city but I have young kids and there are endless things to do that are kid friendly. Flights are reasonable from the Midwest. Delta/MCO handle checked guns like it’s no big deal. VRBO homes are very cheap if you’re willing to be 30 minutes from Disney. Mid-March is warmish - high 70s to low 80s.
  13. I think the most telling thing is that Dillon won’t be selling the 650 anymore. They must believe that the changes are that much better.
  14. Thanks for the feedback. Just realized it’s series 80. I found them at the link below. Website says they have stock but never dealt with this vendor. I usually buy local. https://www.classicfirearms.com/remington-firearms-96717-1911-r1/ Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. Any reviews on the .40 single stack (96717)? Listed for about $880 and a $75 rebate. Not a bad deal for a .40 SS with front serrations and checkered grip, BUT it is a Remington .... Any reviews on reliability? Better to pay 2x for the Dan Wesson .40?
