  1. This [emoji1318] Gets ya every time. I get .010 variations when loading 147gr round nose plated with mixed brass. You’ll make yourself crazy trying to fix it. Only way is to sort brass. No thank you. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  2. Is this what you mean? https://stores.sjcguns.com/sjc-micro-dot-mount-for-glocks/ The c-more sjc mount is what I use on my G17 open gun. But it requires you modify the frame. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. There is a point of diminishing returns. Meaning you can spend your time in search of that “perfect” load...or you can load a very good load and go shoot. I’m not saying one is right and one is wrong. Just something to think about. The pistol, in most cases, especially in USPSA/IDPA, and even dare I say real world defensive/offensive situations doesn’t require, and is not capable of pin point accuracy. There are a butt load of tried and true loads plastered across the interweb. Grab one and run with it. Might not hurt to try and tweak it a little. That is why we handload after all. Just don’t end up chasing your tail. And I know it’s been said before, but MOST 9MM loads do tend to shoot better some where in the 135ish PF range. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  4. My brand new XL650 & Mr Bulletfeeder eagerly await your response. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  5. Are you using a a factory Glock upper or the Brownells upper for the P80 build? The Brownells uppers do not fit most Glock holsters correctly. You can make some work, but it’s not a good fit. This is the issue I ran into. [emoji53] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. I have P80 with Brownells G19 RMR slide. Awesome product. But be advised the Brownells slide MIGHT not fit Glock holsters. My Brownells slide, even on stock G19 frame will not fit my Bladetech holsters. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  7. I’ve been using a MBF powder funnel on my 550 for a while because it does such a better job with mixed range brass. I found with the Dillon powder funnel I was getting some cases that were over flared and some that were under. I don’t sort brass. Now, every case is perfect. Bullet sits right in there. You do need to re adjust you’re powder die. The Dillon powder funnel is longer. Just added a 650 with MBF to my reloading bench. Will of course use the MBF powder funnel on the 650 and continue to use the extra on my 550 for load development and SD loads. I do use Hornady One Shot on all pistol brass just a light dusting makes the process SO much smoother. Never seen anything like your picture before. Call CED and ask em...

  8. Lighting Stike I have these on the mags for my G34 and my G20. They are super well mad and don’t cost an arm and a leg. https://www.brownells.com/magazines/handgun-magazines/magazine-parts/magazine-extension/extended-magazine-pads-for-glock--prod9519.aspx Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  9. Not sure if this has been mentioned or not, but Titan Reloading is running their Dillon Daze Sale. If you’re looking to pick up a new press or get in the game this is a good time to do it. They have several Dillon presses on sale. I picked up a XL 650 for $60 off along with a case feeder and a couple extra case feeder plates. Great customer service and quick shipping. Mine shipped the same day I ordered it. I live down the street from Dillon so it’s easy to get Dillon stuff but sales tax is a killer. Since Dillon stuff hardly ever goes on sale even with shipping I still saved big chunk of change. Not sure if we are allowed to post links, so I’m not going to put it in, but just google Titan Reloading and it should come right up. They are based in Wisconsin. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Titan Reloading is having a sale right now. The XL 650 is $60 off. You have to pay shipping. But it’s reasonable and still cheaper than anywhere else. Dillon stuff hardly ever goes on sale. I just picked up a XL650 and case feeder to add to my RL 550B and Lee single stage. They also have several other Dillon Presses on sale. I have no regrets about getting a 550 first and will never get rid of it. I use it as basically a single stage to load self defense pistol ammo and precision rifle ammo. I love it and will never get rid of it. I will also add a Mr Bullet bullet feeder to the mix here shortly. If your gonna load massive amounts of pistol ammo, and/or AR type ammo get at least a 650, case feeder, and bullet feeder. I love reloading and enjoy the process, but i shoot so much now that it’s become to time consuming with just the 550. There’s no denying that the 1050 is really the way to go for high volume ammo, I just don’t have the space or disposable income for one right now. I also change calibers. A lot. I load for half a dozen different calibers and switch often. The 550 change is a breeze. The 650 takes a little longer but still not bad. The 1050 takes a little bit longer still. Each time you move up the caliber changes become more expensive as well. Right now between the 550 and 650 I’ll be running about 16 different Toolheads. I’d eventually like to have the 650 running my high volume pistol ammo and get a 1050 for the high volume 5.56 and 300 blackout. I would also second the recommendation for Lee 4 die pistol set. They can’t be beat. I had all Dillon dies when I started and ended up selling them. The Lee dies size down further than the Dillon dies and great for range pickup brass. Especially 9MM and 40 S&W. I use only the Lee dies for pistol and various dies for rifle. RCBS black dies for initial case prep of all military brass. I love the Forster FL dies for rifle and their micrometer seaters are excellent. Also a big fan of the Redding body dies in combo with the Lee collet dies for precision rifle ammo. If my wife knew how much money I’ve invested in firearms and reloading... Welcome to addiction! I think the most accurate statement I’ve heard regarding reloading is “You don’t really save any money, because you just end up shooting a LOT more!” Not sure how people who don’t reload can really enjoy their firearms the way they are meant to be enjoyed. I know before I started reloading I for sure didn’t shoot as much as should I have (and I used to be in LE). I didn’t really become proficient with firearms UNTIL I started reloading. Guns are cheap. Feeding them is expensive. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. This [emoji1318] Especially if you are using 9MM with mixed range brass. They are hands down the best expanders for pistol cases if you are using a case activated powder drop. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. WAY too much bell. Try dialing it back a tiny bit at a time. I have a 550, but use the MBF powder die instead of the Dillon one. The MBF is amazing at making the perfect bell even in 9MM range brass with everything I have thrown at it. Even with what others refer to as garbage brass. Between that and a Lee Factory Crimp Die I have zero feed issues. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. I’m unstable. I load em till the primers fall out [emoji6] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. What’s new with the RL1100? Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  15. I’m an evangelist for the church of Silhouette. It’s clean, efficient, and cheap. I run a Glock 17 open gun as well with a Carver Major comp on it. That said I have a Lonewolf barrel with a very shallow throat. I know I know. I’m gonna ream it. Just haven’t gotten around to it so my loads are short. Hoping once I get the throat opened up I can get a little more powder in there and it will run even better. Right now my load is: 124gr PD JHP 6.8 grs Silhouette 1378 FPS 6.4 SD / 26 ES * COAL 1.070” 171 PF Very accurate load! And that SD/ES is with about 20 rounds over the chrono. I’ve also used HS-6. Load for that is: 7.0 grs HS-6 1348 FPS 10.8 SD / 38 ES COAL 1.070” At this point I just like Silhouette better. I like it so much I have 16 pounds of it. I also use Silhouette for my SD 9MM loads. Makes +P+ easy. Low flash, and clean. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
