  1. Hey Apolo - what PF are you running? My 9maj is around 180PF with PD, so moly will be higher. I got a sample pack of 124s from Acme, and the 15' yard accuracy was wider than expected. I admittedly need to try adjusting crimp, but when I pulled the bullet, it only took one strike from the puller, and you could only see a very very faint crimp outline.

  2. MG and PD are both very good - I've primarily used PDs for the past few years and they're great! Admittedly, I use 124s, not 115s, but I'd expect that the quality is the same throughout the product line. If you're interested in powder, I use 8gr Ramshot Silhouette.
  3. Agreed - PD is where it's at, and that's what I've been using for the past 2-3 years, and used MG for 2 years prior to that. They're both really good - I lean towards PD for the cost. Will always use these for LV2+. I just keep running into more and more shooters who are running BBIs, Blue Bullets, and Ibejis in their open guns. The cost differential is quite tempting.
  4. Anyone have experience loading Acmes in 9Maj? If so, were they good? No good? Thoughts? I searched but could only find Minor loads. ...and if you keep up with the Open forum... yes I said that I still shoot 38SC... but I practice exclusively in 9Maj ? Thanks all
  5. ... it's still alive with me...
  6. They are just different games. USPSA does not incorporate the 'tactical' style of IDPA - so there are no rules regarding cover, cover garments, dropping loaded magazines, target engagement rules, etc. However, calculating your scores in USPSA is more complicated. Ha! Yeah, I totally get it. There are a lot of guys with strong opinions about their game of choice. I've shot both, and both are fun in different ways... but only USPSA has Open
  7. If this is your goal, shoot USPSA. ? Haha - ok sorry I couldn't help myself - it was too easy . To be fair though, USPSA and IDPA are both 'run-and-gun' sports. Don't let other people's perceptions of USPSA deter you from trying it. While this sounds like advice you'd give a 3rd grader, people new to either IDPA or USPSA may not be aware of the deep dispassion that some shooters have for the other sport, and vice-versa. You don't have to be a track star to have fun in USPSA, just as you don't have to be from Seal Team 6 to have fun in IDPA. Shoot them both - at this stage, more trigger
  8. True, Jack - I was typing while barely thinking. You are correct - gas runs the comp for sure.
  9. Hey Tony - I made the jump to USPSA Open after about a year of IDPA SSP... it's a LOT of fun, but is a very very different game. I agree with the others - bring either your ESP rig, or your Tanfo to few matches and see if you like USPSA. Open shooters will often let you put a few rounds through their guns. See if you can try some out before committing $2K (or more) converting your Tanfo, or on buying a used open gun. If you ever come down to Houston to shoot, let me know - happy to let you fire off a few rounds on my open gun. One last thing - most Open gun setups will require reloading y
  10. I have both - and I prefer CR Speed. Both outer belts are stiff, but the CR Speed's inner belt is a little more 'stout' in my opinion. For me, the inner belt makes the rig feel a little more solid.
