Calls Shots

Calls Shots (8/11)

  1. Do ISMI Glock recoil springs fit on the SECURE FIREARMS PRODUCTS 1911 RECOIL SPRING TESTER?
  2. I have it written down in my notes that we get a 7.5% discount with BBI, but I have no idea what I did with the discount code. Tried searching but couldn’t find it. Sure it’s in the millions of posts somewhere. Ring a bell with anyone?
  3. Just pulled and tumbled a large lot of primed 10MM (wasn’t happy with the load). Tumbled for hours while I did something else. Reloaded and shot hundreds of them this past week during load development. Zero issues. Might take a little more work to get all of the media out of a bottle neck case that’s sealed at one end, but they will be fine. Or just pop the primers out and start over. Done that before too.
  4. They’re great. Like the 127’s. Coating is good and consistent. Fast shipping. Good competitive pricing.
  5. I’m a big fan of Clean Shot or AA #2 if you can find it It’s replaced both TG and 231 for me.
  6. Damn. Missed the 115 JHP by this much....
  7. I swear I’m not being cute. There is a page in the back of the instructions that gives the ramp position, cuff position, and speed for all the cartridges by cartridge. I believe there is also a page that talks about clutch adjustment as well.
  8. The remainder of my Blue Bullets order showed up a couple weeks ago. It was the case of 115’s. The 125’s and 180’s showed up couple months back. They were nicely packaged in cool little plastic containers that look like ammo cans. Order was from 3/25/21. Shipped on 6/23. Showed up 6/25. Only thing I’m still waiting on is 180’s from Precision Bullets.
  9. Not sure if it applies here, but if you remove and then replace the slide on the Sig, and put the take down lever back in the up position WITHOUT using the slide lock, it will result in a dead trigger. Not sure how that could have happened in the situation described though?
  10. Not saying you’re wrong, but when I was using the old chrono I couldn’t get plated bullets to read. Then shot FMJs and JHPs in the exact same conditions, minutes later, and gotten correct consist readings. I used two different chronos in the AZ desert sun for years before I got my lab radar with little issue (except for plated). So you are probably correct that traditional chronos work best in the conditions you described, and maybe the chrono can read plated in perfect conditions, but how often to we get that scenario?
  11. I’m a “JHP” for open guns guy
  12. This. For some reason when I used plated bullets years ago I could never get a traditional chrono to consistently read correctly. I would imagine if you were actually getting that big of a swing you’d see other signs. Noise, feel, POI shift. When I chrono plated bullets with my labradar they read fine.
  13. I built a G17 Open Pistol with a Lonewolf barrel (also famously short lead). I have a Manson throat reamer and opened up the throat to allow me load to 1.155-1.160" with RMR or Everglades 115gr JHP. 1.160" is the max I can run due to the Glock magazine restrictions. I could probably go a little longer with the MBX metal mags, but not sure it's worth it in this platform. MBX mags are awesome...but expensive. I originally ran 124gr JHP with Silhouette and the gun worked great, but then I tried 115gr JHP and the gun really started working as intended. It's never gonna be a 2011 platform open gun, but it's as close as you're gonna get without spending 2011 money. I dabble in too many things to spend 2011 money. I have also switched to SW Major Pistol and am loving it. The whole point of this story is that with plastic open guns I found that the extra powder that I was able to squeeze in with the 115gr projectile really allowed the comp to come to life. The gun shoots extremely flat and is extremely accurate. I found the 115's pushed to 1460 FPS to be a touch more accurate than the 124's pushed to 1370 FPS. Unless you can have someone make ammo to your specs it's probably gonna be a tuff go. As stated, most major ammo is more than likely gonna manufactured for 2011 platforms and hence is gonna be loaded hot (and long) for an M&P or Glock. 2011's have better, more efficient comps, and can handle more powder to make the same power factor. Do you not reload?
  14. Which is crazy because I ordered 180’s months ago and was told it would be summer.
