  1. Thank you for the great tip! Never would have guessed there was brass being sold on there. Just got started.
  2. Just wanted to say thank you to everyone for the great ideas and apologize my post was close to be a violation. I was truly seeking advice and not trying to solicit any sales. But thank you guys very much. Joe
  3. So I was hoping you guys could help me out with something. I have a small business selling once fired brass. Our sales were always through word of mouth, a couple LGS and facebook, of course the liberal anti-gun facebook has shut us down. We have tried GunBroker but get very little activity. So where is a good online source to sell once fired brass? Thank you very much. joe l
  4. Hey Everyone I just wanted to share an update. My gun just arrived back from Ruger today, talk about amazing customer service, I had it back in less then 2 weeks. With that said they replaced the slide and the extractor. So it has a brand new slide and brand new extractor. Very impressive customer service. Thanks for all of the help. Joe
  5. Yes I agree I would love to know exactly what was wrong and why it happened. The gunsmith at the range that looked at it thought it was firing out of battery and recommend I send it to Ruger. I tried the exact same loads in the Range's Ruger SR1911 and they fired just fine with no issues. I also tried my mags with my ammo in the rental SR1911 and still functioned fine with no brass deformity. I sent an M&P into Smith as well and they were really fast and took great care of me but as you said the notes were very vague. I will say so far Smith & Wesson and Sig have had excellent customer service, where as much as I love my Glocks they were not as good as S&W and or Sig.
  6. Sarge, it does like like the primer strikes are off center. I contacted Ruger and they sent me a shipping label and it was delivered to them on last Thursday. So now just waiting to see what they have to say. Keeping me fingers crossed, this is one of my favorite guns. Thank-you
  7. I checked the ejector and it's good and I don't see any obvious issues with the extractor and the weapon is not malfunctioning other than the chewed up brass, still feeds, fires and ejects fine. I tried the exact same batch of loads, the remaining 93 rounds in the rental gun, the exact same weapon, and the brass was fine, no burn marks and not damaged at all. Even tried my mag with the same loads in the rental gun and no issues whatsoever.
  8. i was initially looking for the telltale bulge and of course didn't see it, but it looks like the mouth of the case is getting caught up under the barrel so that was what made us think of the out of battery. On the one case it matches up perfectly to the barrel. Of course the ejector makes sense so I will check it in the morning but I would be surprised if I missed that when I broke it down and cleaned it Friday night, definitely possible of course. There is an odd burn pattern on the exterior of the case on the opposite side from the deformity but I couldn't get it to show up good in pictures. Thank you I will let you know what I find tomorrow. Hopefully it's so simple and easily corrected, I love the gun, one of my favorites.
  9. I have a Ruger SR1911 that I absolutely love and I have about 1800-2000 rounds through her so far. On my last couple of range trips it has been chewing up the brass as below and the recoil and sound seem off. I looked at with some of the staff at the range it looks like it is perhaps firing slightly out of battery. I am shooting my own reloads, 230 Gr. Berry RN with 7.1 of Power Pistol at 1.260" with CCI primers. This is a load I use regularly with no issues. I had the same thing happen 2 range trips in a row on 2 different batches of the same load, loaded on my Dillon 550 and all rounds are case gaged before firing. The weapon is cleaned and relubed after each range trip. After this happened on the first magazine of the trip I stopped firing that batch on that weapon. I then tried the exact same batch of loads on the Range's rental gun, the exact same weapon, a Ruger SR1911. The rental SR1911 fired the remaining 93 rounds without any issues. I tried my magazines in the rental SR1911 with my loads and they functioned flawlessly. The first time my SR1911 was cleaned with Slip 2000 725 and lubed per manufacturer's recommendations with Slip 2000 EWL the second range trip I completely detailed stripped the weapon, found no signs of any obvious damaged cleaned to bare metal and lubed with Militec to Ruger recommendations. Please see the pictures and let me know what you think is going on with my SR1911. Thank-you for the help everyone. Joe
  10. Thanks for the tip I will have to check one of these out. Looks just like the one Berry's sell and I am starting to hear good things about them
  11. I have the Frankford Arsenal wet tumbler and it works great but honestly most of my brass just goes in a Lyman with corn cob. Now I will have to try the walnut mineral spirits and corn cob Nufinish method Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  12. For the price of the pro and the core it's a shame the factory barrel doesn't have better accuracy. Really long thread about known accuracy issues with 9mm as well. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  13. I had an M&P.40 FS that I put about 2000 rounds through before selling it. I know most people love them but personally I could not shoot it consistently. One range session would be great and the next was all over the place. I loved the way it felt and looked but finally parted ways with her. Funny thing is I miss her nonetheless. Honestly though I think it was me and not the gun I just shoot Glocks a lot more. Never liked the stock trigger. Never had any function issues with it and you can't beat Smith&Wesson on their warranty. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  14. I had the exact same problem with Xtreme .45 ACP 230 RN on my Dillon 550B. Tried both ends of the seating stem and left a ring around the bullets. It didn't have any effect on accuracy that I can tell but sure drives me crazy so I will probably the super glue trick or my Lee seating die as it doesn't do it. I did contact Dillon about custom seating stems and they don't offer that but said if enough people ask they my offer some additional shapes. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  15. Thanks for sharing the "shot process" tooth guy, great read. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
