    Is your Local Match all field courses?

    None of the things you have noted above are in any way diminished by higher round count, but, to each their own, no worries. Where I am at the 4 closest clubs will only put up a short stage if they are forced to (have a tight bay) and to the best of my knowledge everybody likes it that way. Only downside I know of is that you can occasionally get more memory challenge than you are looking for. 6 full memory stages can sort of feel like work.

    Maybe on really small bays, I guess? Even with small bays I don't see why it wouldn't be more fun to shoot multiple targets at each position. I've never been to a 6 stage local match & heard anyone say that round count was too high, I have heard comments the other way.

    Sns coating problems

    I'm used to seeing a bit of scraped coating when I find a remnant laying about, so, perhaps wrongly, I've tended to assume that the spin of the bullet allows it to fly straight with some degree of nonconformity around the circumference. From a tree in my backyard (who can afford a chainsaw these days) I think the 3 40's are bayou and the 2 red 9's are SNS, not sure about the orange 9.

    To expose them???

    Sns coating problems

    I was typing as you were. I'm not sure there is a reason to care about the light scraping shown? My assumption is that the coating never survives the rifling completely intact and that spin creates forgiveness for this as well as other bullet and barrel imperfections.

    Sns coating problems

    I've shot several thousand of them, the only leading I've seen is with a 929 revolver and I do not think it is a bullet issue. I do not crimp to the point where a crimp line is detectable on the bullet, just enough to bring the brass back to the bullet, although I'm sure it is just the high picture magnification that makes your crimp look severe. I know too much crimp will hose your accuracy but I do not know if it will increase the chance of barrels leading. On the first page of the SNS website they state that fast burning powders are usually associated with any leading issues & they suggest Alliant Performance Pistol (double check me on the name, if I've got the name right there is a thread on that powder here). I've been using fast burning powders to date but am going to try the new stuff because it is priced fair & supposed to burn very clean & it might possibly help the 929. I would not hesitate to call them if I were you, they are a friendly bunch & may have better insights. Good luck!!

    Rules Question

    I think you guys are scared of Sarge. The question wasn't about shooting "targets prior to activation," it was about shooting targets prior to activation of a no shoot. Even though my shooting results would often imply differently, I do not think that no shoots are considered to be targets.

    Drifting a Shadow 2 rear sight.

    I never had to do anything but turn the pusher screw with CZ rear sights and the CZ pusher. On other guns with a multiple use pusher I have tightened the screw as much as felt wise and then tapped on the shaft of the pusher screw with a small hammer if the sight would not move. That has been sufficient so far.
  9. I had forgotten that CZ sends a factory test target with the guns. My 85 combat 5 shot test target group (25 meters, 27 yards) was 1 3/4", best 4 was 1 3/8". I think that is pretty typical.

    Drifting a Shadow 2 rear sight.

    https://czcustom.com/products/cz-gunsmith-tools/cz-rear-sight-pusher.html Expensive but quick and precise. Makes me crazy to not be able to adjust zero. If you get one, ignore the marks, turn screw till it stops, tighten screw about 1/4 to 1/2 turn & back off, turn screw until it stops and note how much farther the screw turned before you felt resistance. I'd typically start by moving the sight 1/4 turn & then see how much that changed point of aim and go from there. After you get used to it it is almost as fast and easy as just turning the windage screw on a standard adjustable sight. EDIT; - Double check that the Shadow 2 slide fits the grooves. Pretty sure I used it when I had a Shadow 2 but I have slept since then.
  11. If 10 yard accuracy is good and 25 yard accuracy is bad it is good to verify that you are not crimping into the coating.
  12. The CGW bushing's have a smaller i.d. , it very easy to tell that the barrel fit is tighter after you install one. I do not know about relative hardness.
  13. On the CZ custom website they state that on a ransom rest the accu bushing game them sub 3" groups at 50 yards and that their Stock Sp01 gave them approximately 5" groups at 50 yards. I would expect similar from the shadow 2 variants but have not seen the data. In the real world as others have noted, CZ's are known for accuracy period, the precision barrel bushing sold by CGW is a popular mod that seems to generally provide increased accuracy.

    How do you track your progress?

    It would be interesting to compare methods of all the GM and super squad types & see if there is a lot of conformity of approach. Not saying their might not be just saying I would like to know.

    How do you track your progress?

    Works for me. Also does not let things hide, if you are not going after the low hanging fruit then you know it. Precise timing of the bits and pieces is nice when you are comparing different techniques / loads / equipment / equipment positions or if that is part of what makes you enjoy the practicing & the shooting.
