  1. If I don’t shoot right over the sensors of the chrono I get similar erratic results. Also distance from the chrono play a role. Finally, if you have the competition electronics deluxe chrono with built in Bluetooth, it has a quirk when recording duplicate velocities. When you have the same velocity in 2 or more consecutive shots, if the string in the chrono is full, it does not record the subsequent velocities to your phone. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. That’s what I used for several years. I agree, vibraprime does not like them, but otherwise they work perfect in my 650. Not a single malfunction in my PCC or XDm. Helps with your math too, 12 rows + 4 more! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. I was doing the same search yesterday in the Dillon website. For 6.5 CM in the 650XL you need the Large Rifle Casefeed plate, refer to case feeder manual - https://www.dillonprecision.com/docs/Dillon_Casefeed_Manual_2018.pdf For dies, Dillon website only offer Redding two-die set stock #71005.

  4. My reloading area is in my workshop, which is also my workspace for doing all repairs at home, including car repairs. Whenever I’m going to reload I tidy up the bench and the work area around it, including removing the a vise that is next to my 650XL. After the reloading session, I clean the 650XL, pick up all spent primers that fell to the floor, dust around the machine and put the cover on. During reloading is about a 7, but between is a 2.5.

  5. This answers many of my questions regarding reloading equipment and supplies as I’m also moving. But in my case, for all my firearms is a bit more complicated. I live in Puerto Rico and moving to Texas. PR has one of the strictest gun laws in the US after CA. Firearms permit, target shooting permit, CCL and separate license to buy powder as it is considered an explosive. Renewal of all of these are in the thousands of dollars. Hence my firearms are registered, as well as my ammo and powder purchases. For the move I am planning to transfer FFL to FFL all my firearms to make sure they are taken off the PR registry. For ammo and powder, I am now trying to consume my inventory to avoid any hassles during the move. Selling ammo or powder is not allowed, only FFL can sell those in PR. I guess I’ll need to get used not having big brother overseeing all my shooting activities in TX. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Unfortunately I live in Puerto Rico, so no ammo shipments to U S. Hence, I need to bring my reloads in the plane. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Ok, let’s see how to handle the following situation. I am traveling to Ares 6 with my 11 year old son. I am shooting Limited and he is shooting PCC. PCC, pistol, belt, etc is traveling inside a non-TSA lock locked hard case. I am planning to bring one additional bag to be checked under my son’s ticket with our clothes and ammo. I reload, hence I want to bring 400-500 rounds each, which will require each of us to put our ammo in our respective bags. 500 rounds in the hard case and 500 in my son’s luggage. Since he is underage, would TSA/Airline allow me check his bag with ammo in it? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. I load 135 for my son’s AR-9 with 5.25” barrel from Taccom at 3.05gr of TG 1.125” OAL for 132 PF Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    PCC loads

    I am shooting 135 gr truncated cone blue bullets over 2.7 gr of TiteGroup for 941 fps or 129 PF @1.120”. This is for a AR9 style rifle using a KVP 8.5” long barrel I built for my son. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  10. That's how the Caldwell chronograph app for iPhone saves the data Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. I keep an inventory of 1000 rounds for myself and 500 for my son's PCC. 800 reserve and 200 for matches for me and 300/200 for my son. That's why I reload between 200 and 400, time available to reload between matches or if I need to load for my son too. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. 200 to 400 Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Cindy, I'm not sure I follow you on this one. Are you referring to the seating die or the powder adjustment bolt? The later does not move in or out. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. I do have low, medium and high strength loctite, so no issue there. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. Ok, 2nd powder bar is $24, uniquetek micrmeter is $80 and Prairie Dog's is $37. So, looks like the Pairie dog may be the best option. As for COL, I made two dummy round templates that I just use to setup the machine. Thanks all for all the great feedback. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
