Sees Sights Lift

Sees Sights Lift (7/11)

  1. Does the comp have 2 or 3 slots in the top, hard to tell from the pictures?

  2. Nope - 10x what they should (used to) cost for 100,000 primers!
  3. It's all based on manufacturing capacity. If loaded ammo sales volume soak up 100% of primer manufacturing capacity then you don't sell primers in favor of selling higher margin loaded ammo. The business decision is whether to increase your primer manufacturing capacity. After all, primer sales are profitable also, just maybe not as profitable as loaded ammo, but you'd like to have both if possible. But, adding manufacturing capacity is fairly capital intensive investment. History suggests that current capacity is adequate except in extraordinary circumstances like we find ourselves in now. So, why make a long term capital investment to build more primer manufacturing capacity when the odds are within a year or so demand will likely drop down to current supply levels...
  4. Thanks for the link but my RL 1050 doesn't look like that and doesn't have a "half moon". There's just an adjustable round knob that screws in or out to adjust how far back the primer slide is allowed to come. I don't think it will allow primers to fall even if I loosen it fairly far out.
  5. Didn't know there was a "drain hole", but just looked and yep, there is a hole under the primer handling mechanism. Question: How do you open the hole to allow the primers to drain out?
  6. Big fan of 90 degree mounts with C-Mores for both steel challenge (Volquartsen) and open gun (Steel Master 2011). I find it faster to pick up the dot when coming on target, whether from low ready or from the holster. I have a vertical mounted C-More on my .22 Keltec CP33 that I use for action steel matches. Even after several months, I still have to slow down to find the dot during target transitions. Not so with a horizontal mount. In reality, it's probably just a matter of what you get used to...
  7. That's the one that I think has an unpleasant aroma associated with it. You're basically buying options on primers for some unspecified future delivery... NOT!
  8. gotenda.com is out of stock on spp, but put the 9c per primer in perspective. Pre March 2020 primers were selling in the 2.8 to 3.8 cents each and 9mm ammo was selling in the $0.17 to $0.20 per round range. Fast forward to today and 9mm is in the $0.70 to $0.95 per round range, an increase of about 4x. Those 2.8 to 3.8 cent primers are now 9 to 12 cents each (I'm excluding the gouging going on at gunbroker, gun shows, etc.). That's somewhere in the 3x to 4x increase as well. Bullets have only gone up a penny or two, so even at the 9c primer price, reloading is still significantly less expensive than buying new ammo (when you can find it!).
  9. I found Ginex for $0.09 each in qty 10K, but... delivery is estimated for maybe July, or maybe Aug, or maybe Sept & they want a 50% down payment. That deal has a little bit of a smell to it from my perspective. If I could find them for 9 cents each including shipping with immediate availability I'd consider an order for 10K or maybe more. But, I'm not going to buy what looks to be "options" on primers for some unspecified future delivery.
  10. What is "large quiescent"? Never heard of that with respect to primers, etc...
  11. Let's see, for small pistol primers I've shot ammo made with Ginex primers in a Glock 17, Glock 19, Glock 26, 3 different 1911's, an STI 2011 open gun, a Sig 938, a Springfield Hellcat, and probably a few others that I can't think of right now. In large pistol primers I've fired them in a Glock 21, a Glock 36 and at least three 1911's. My friends have shot some of my rounds in their PCC's and various pistols. Never a problem. They also work well with my DAA Primer Pro collator. I can't say anything bad about them, just like I don't have anything bad to say about CCI primers or Federal primers, all of which I've loaded/fired thousands of rounds with. Several years ago I decided to give Ginex a try because they were less expensive than CCI or Federal. I stuck with them because they worked and continued to be lower cost. I'd buy more in a heartbeat if I could find them!
  12. I'm a dumbass for not buying 100K of them, but I'm not enough of a dumbass to continue to buy them if they weren't any good! I've shot close to 50K of them and can't recall a time when one didn't go bang.
  13. I would use for outlaw action steel matches. Most COF's are 20-25 rds so would mean only one mag change. No rules on mag capacity or caliber.
  14. 15 round single stack mags exist in .45 acp. I read in one forum where the shape of the 9mm caused nose dives at greater than 10 or so rounds so larger capacity magazines weren't feasible. But... I read it in a forum, for what that's worth!
