  1. I started shooting USPSA in 2 calibers and bought a Dillion 550 soon after. I quickly replaced it with a 650 as my monthly demands increased. I then added on both case and bullet feeder to reduce my time keeping up with practice and match requirements. Everybody is different, my approach may not work for all.

  2. I second them as a great source! Sent from my SM-G935V using Tapatalk
  3. Thanks Sent from my SM-G935V using Tapatalk
  4. Whose safety levers are you using? Sent from my SM-G935V using Tapatalk
  5. ^^^^^^^ This. Your MD/RM is wrong. Good ones will accept that they blew not having the condition of the port door in the WSB. Sent from my SM-G935V using Tapatalk
  6. Synthetic grease, light coating on bolt and key friction points followed by Lucas oil works well for my MBX Sent from my SM-G935V using Tapatalk
  7. Having individual stage and a consolidated build list us quite helpful. One small team pulls and delivers steel and other heavy equipment to each stage while each stage team pulls their unique items. Steel team then cycles back to grab target stands (steel as well) Sent from my SM-G935V using Tapatalk
  8. Great advice ^^^ Some other thoughts... 1) know how many and where all the targets are located, 2) walk thru your plan as many times as you can during the ~5-minutes your squad has to look over the stage, 3) when it's your turn, the last thing to do before the RO asks "are you ready" is to walk-thru your plan in your mind - eyes closed is even better Another good piece of information that can inform you preparations for a specific match are the starting positions including handgun condition - particularly practice any ones you've new to or aren't proficient with in your DF or LF
  9. My experience the the MBX comp (I have their PCC) was it didn't seem to affect muzzle movement much when shooting a 147gr bullet that made a PF of 135K. Once I moved to a 115gr bullet making the same 135K PF, I perceived a smaller muzzle/dot movement with an increased amount of felt recoil. I'm using Alliant e3 powder, 3.7grs for the 115gr Berrys bullet IIRC. Sent from my SM-G935V using Tapatalk
  10. Indeed. I've had it since late last year and have been dry and live firing it in preparation for the new season. I replaced the handguard with a carbon-fiber model from Taccom and settled on a Holosun optic.
  11. I would consider buying 100 or so bullets in several weights and work up a 9MM minor load for each. Everyone has preferences and you may find you like 124gr loads that are snappier but let you get your sights back on target quicker. Give the 135gr bullets a look as well: a compromise between the 147 and 124gr offerings. You should consider varying recoil spring weight as a final turning action.

  12. I've been loading on this particular 650 press for about 2-months. It is used but, is in great condition. I've loaded several thousand 9MM rounds using Alliant e3 (PCC load) and just this morning while attempting to crank-out a couple hundred rounds, the powder measure stopped dropping any powder. I only had a couple of minutes to check it and everything seems to be moving as normal just no charge coming out. I plan to take it off and check it later this evening. Is it simply dirty enough to clog-up. I've never had this happen in the previous years reloading on the 550 using the same powder.
  13. I have been using it for about a month and would recommend it. Like it better than the Double Alpha offering.
