  1. I can pop mine out without a problem but I really wanted something that I could switch h back and forth without tools at the range. I am going to pit it up for sale but if it doesn't sell I may go the dedicated lower route if I can find one at a good price. Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
  2. So I picked up the target version for my 1911 but did not know that the conversion would not fit the 9mm 1911 because the ejector is wider and higher. I talked to AA and he said that since the conversion slide has its own ejector that I could remove the 9mm ejector. If I remove the ejector to use the conversion and put it back on when I want or use the 1911 as a 9mm would there be any problem doing that? Sent from my SM-T320 using Tapatalk
  3. Well Dillon came through for me, 3 at no charge Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk
  4. I have been meaning to pick up a spare parts kit, might be a good time to finally get one. Sent from my SM-T320 using Tapatalk
  5. So I have been reloading for about 6 years on two Dillon machines and this morning I broke my first part ever. I think that is pretty good, let's just hope it's not a trend starting. Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk
  6. Yes the pistol is new. I am going to break it in and see if I need to change the recoil spring. I put another 100 rounds through it today and the slide locked back on each empty mag. There is probably nothing wrong with it but it just seems to not eject the brass as far as my smaller pistols. Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk
  7. I have been loading 4.0 grains of titegroup using 124 grain bullets in three of my smaller 9mm pistols and they all seem to shoot great. I recently purchased a 9mm 1911 and have been using the same loads as my other pistols but noticed on the 1911 that the brass is ejecting pretty weak and sometimes not locking the slide back on the last round. I am guessing I should load a little hotter for the 1911. Has anyone else found this to be true?
  8. Do any of you guys using CFE Pistol notice the outside of the cases burned up. I am loading up to 5.4gr using Berry's plated 124gr round nose and I am being told that I am not using enough powder to expand the brass for a good seal. I am seeing here that you guys are using even lighter loads. I have not had this load on a chrono to see what it is doing. Sent from my SM-T320 using Tapatalk
  9. I am using it with some Berry's 124gr bullets and I am having a problem that others are too. At the max load it looks like the charge is not enough to expand the brass enough to seal the chamber. I am getting a lot of burn marks on the cases and a very dirty chamber. So far I have loaded to 5.5gr and I still have the same problem. I have been reading that guys are going to 5.8gr so I am going to start bumping the charge up until I see that the brass is expanding or I am getting some over pressure.
  10. I have had mine for about a year in my basement and there has not been any rusting. Sent from my SM-T320 using Tapatalk
  11. I have loaded up to 5.2 grains and noticed that the primers were starting to flatten out. I don't think they were over pressured, probably just soft primers. All my firearms cycled even at the lowest charge so I decided to keep my reloads on the low side. I will up the charge a little at a time and see where the sweet spot is to get the expansion I need to seal the chamber. Sent from my SM-T320 using Tapatalk
  12. Honestly I did exactly that, I crimped just enough to take the flare out and still drop into my case gauge. I am going to pick up some factory ammo and see how it shoots and compare them. Sent from my SM-T320 using Tapatalk
  13. I have not measured the cases to see how much they have expanded, I am new to loading 9mm but I will measure them and see what numbers I am getting. Sent from my SM-T320 using Tapatalk
  14. I am seeing the same shooting through a pistol. The brass didn't get wet as far as I know. Sent from my SM-T320 using Tapatalk
  15. I am having a issue in my 9mm AR build where I am seeing unburnt powder all over and the brass is very dirty on the outside. I am using Berry's 124gr bullets with 5.1gr CFE Pistol powder. I have been told that I may be under charged but I am leaning toward not enough crimp. I know it's hard to diagnose over the net but I am sure I can't be the first reloader to have this problem?
