  1. 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
  2. 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.
  3. 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.

  4. 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.
  5. I have been using it for about a month and would recommend it. Like it better than the Double Alpha offering.
  6. So far I'm in the slightly-bent elbow camp. I've compared and I'm slightly faster this way. Moving positions and shifting the butt off and on my shoulder feels more natural.
  7. I have one because I run a powder-check. It work fine for my 9mm loads. I have used the Redding Competition dies for seating and Dillon for crimping when not running a powder check. Sent from my SM-G935V using Tapatalk
  8. A key theme in all the above is communication... even at a level I match, making sure everyone understands how things will be scored saves a lot of conflicts. For example: Having the person inputting scores enter them for targets the shooter has already engaged as they and the RO running the timer, continue moving through the stage can frequently save time. Everyone just needs to know how things are going to work.
  9. I noted the step on mine as well. Glad you have resolved your problem!
  10. Well said sir Sent from my SM-G935V using Tapatalk
  11. My FA primer works extremely well using the Dillon primer tubes (check-out YouTube)
  12. ^^^^^^^ This has worked for me as well
