  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

    Is 38SC dead ?

    ... it's still alive with me...
  6. The typical SV answer is 10 gr VV 3n38 @1.240 with 124gr JHPs. It's what I use for my SV and it's pretty sweet. I think it's Brandon's defacto recommendation for SVs. I used HS6 and CFE pistol in my old Cameron with pretty good results. I don't remember the load data off hand though. Sent from my SM-G920P using Tapatalk
  7. +1 for Precision Delta 124 JHPs for open. Not affiliated either. They work Sent from my SM-G920P using Tapatalk
  8. Yeah that's my problem - PV has been out Federal and Winchester SPP for a while. Never had great luck with CCI Sent from my SM-G920P using Tapatalk
  9. Anybody do this? If so, did you have to back down your powder charge? Sorry if this is a repeat topic - I tried to search, but search terms are generic enough that there were too many unrelated posts. Sent from my SM-G920P using Tapatalk
  10. +1 for dry fire and for Ben Stoegers books Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  11. I shoot irons with an 18" with an eotech - unmagnified optics are legal for irons in the matches I attend. I went with 18" because I tend to shoot a variety of matches. Barrel length, imho, depends on the type of match you shoot. 3GN matches typically lean towards the "hoser" style rifle target setup. In that event, you may want a shorter barrel so swinging between targets is easier. In matches that emphasize long range stuff, a 20" (or longer) may be right. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  12. Let me add a little to the SVI porn [emoji106]
  13. Anyone try to make major with CFE and a 9MM Gold Team? If so, did you have good results?
  14. FWIW I just tried this load with OAL = 1.168, and got a decent group (~1.5") at 15yds. Only noteworthy thing is that the hits were 1-2" high of POA on stock G34 Gen 4 sights (stock recoil spring). Will be replacing the sights with a Warren Sevigny combo soon anyway, so it may not matter.
  15. 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
