  1. Most likely the tumbling bullets were undersized. It doesn't take but a few thousands and they will destabilize and tumble.

    Light strikes

    I would try replacing the striker spring. A 4.5LB spring should be 100% with most any type of factory ammo. A Wolff 4.5 LB spring should be the cure. Your spring could be a little weak and that is all it takes for light strikes.
  3. This ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
  4. Since you already have it, My Wife who is ultra recoil sensitive chooses RS Comp. over anything else, i cant really tell the difference. The old Clays was really hard to beat but it is unobtainable now. 3.9 of RS Comp behind a 230 grn RN coated/plated bullet or 4.2 behind a jacketed bullet is about as clean and soft as you will find.
  5. Can you measure the bullet before and after loading it? Blue Bullets tend to run a little undersized for coated lead, i am not sure about your other brand. Anything below .400 is going to lead your bore. I would do some measuring as i believe this is where you will find the issue. It could be your barrel is a bit on the larger diameter size also. Measure before, after and the groove diameter of your barrel, bet you find the problem fairly quickly. (looked over the caliber, Sorry about that) Fixed it.
  6. There is a simple fix for your issue. Your seating die is trying to crimp the case as you are seating the bullet. Turn the body of the seating die up a few turns and turn the seating stem back down to the OAL you want. As long as the seating die body is turned down too deep it won't matter how much you bell the case, the built in taper crimp in the seating die will still turn the edge of the case mouth into the bullet as you try to seat it.
  7. I have used/installed many PRP trigger kits and they have all been superb. You cannot go wrong.
  8. Winchester SPP is the next softest.
  9. Magpul makes one, while not as large as some of the more expensive models it beats not having one at all and you won't knock it off.
  10. I noticed you are using Federal SPP for hand loads but shooting Remington factory loads. Are you judging "pressure signs" off of the primers? If so Federal primers are butter soft and it will appear to be high pressure when none exists. Try your load with a CCI primer to see if you still see a high pressure sign.
  11. For a .350 tall rear you would need at least a .330 tall front. The .350 is with the sight all the way down. This may take a bit of experimenting depending on your load and how you view your sights. .330 will get you very close.
  12. Laserman, Your barrel is done. I received it today and will have back out to you on Monday. No problem reaming the Double Diamond at all.
  13. That is correct. Manson does not make a reamer for the OEM Glock barrels. They are way too hard for the standard reamer. Most of the aftermarket barrels will work but not the super hard OEM Glock barrels. That is also true for the Springfield XD/XDM or the new CZ Shadow 2 barrels or any Nitride/Melonite coated barrels. You will need either a carbide or a diamond coated reamer for these.
  14. I use a Dave Manson reamer. You can purchase one from Dave for about what one rental costs. I belive i paid $40.00 for the last one I purchased from him last year. He will also resharpen them for you.
