  1. I have a 1050, get the 1100... you will not regret it. Forget about the warranty issue, that really should not be a part of your decision. I have never had to buy replacement parts for my 1050, and if I did... so what, pay for what you broke. Dillon is excellent to deal with. Like I said I already have a 1050, if I were to buy another press today it would be an 1100 (or another 1050, someone is selling)
  2. great advice by the above posts. I did this many years ago, with the exact same load. I was experimenting with my Glock however. I found that 147gr coated bullet at 1.135" with 3.2gr on N320 was excellent. Actually this would chrono at a 2 standard deviation. I first started by experimenting with OAL first. I loaded 20 rounds at 0.005" increments from 1.120" - 1.150", I shot every group of rounds through a chrono and into a target so that I could measure accuracy spread and velocity spread. It resulted in a very obvious bell curve type data. It was fun to do and I learned a lot from it. I think you should give it a try.
  3. I think this a great experiment for you. Not everyone likes to shoot the same way. Some like heavy guns, some like light guns. I have a buddy that plain out rocks a 52oz open gun, I have shot this gun and it is just way to heavy for me. I personally love shooting my 1911 45acp, but don't really care for shooting 1911 9mm. However, I do like shooting my 9mm Glocks and M&Ps. I think I like the "sharper" (if that is the right descriptive word) recoil, it seems to help get the sights back on target quicker for me.
  4. Has anyone switched from coated Bullets to plates or JHP, and seen their lead levels decline? Just curious, I would think this would help. Shooting at an indoor range may not notice a change unless all shooters switched, assuming that helps anyway.
  5. You mentioned you have a 625, do you reload for it? Can he use your 625? Also, if you reload for it, can you reload some minor ammo for him. I shot a 625 for many years and really enjoyed it, I wouldn't necessarily claim it is a good entry level gun, but fun for sure. At an entry level, the biggest benefits of shooting a 625 IMO are: 1. you only have to be able to count to 6, that may sound silly, but simplicity helps beginners, versus Prod and potentially SS minor, where reload points matter or you can get lost in the COF with your round count. Keep in mind, he is a beginner, there will be a lot of standing reloads and he will know no different. He will soon figure that out, and will want a 627/929. Then he can start saving his money. 2. you will get all your moonclips and brass back, yay! if you do reload, have him help you are part of his learning curve. I think it is awesome that someone is wanting to get started shooting revolver. I sold my 625 many many years ago, it was a great gun.
  6. Who's watching The Boys? We are loving it. It is quite morbid and dark, but so far I am really enjoying it. We've made it through Episode 6, probably will finish the last 2 tonight. It kind of reminds me of The Watchmen meets a dark version of the Justice League.
  7. by this chart, it is interesting that the only 3 divisions that show an increase are all optic related divisions.
  8. The PRIZM lenses for my FLAK 2.0 are not “ballistic” rated, they may not even be ANSI 87.1 I don’t wear mine for shooting sports, I only wear my Rydons for shooting. I think there are only like 4-5 models of Oakley’s that are ballistic rated.
  9. I am also partial to Oakley’s. I have a pair of FLAK and FLAK 2.0, with multiple lens selections including PRIZM. So far the PRIZM lenses are my favorite. I feel the adjustability of the Rudy Rydons helps when shooting as I can adjust them to sit higher on my nose to allow better breathing than my Oakley’s.
  10. Not for the near future at least. I’m not shooting enough to justify an investment into Open.
  11. I have enjoyed CO. I shot SS for many years and loved it, still do. But I was getting bored and wanted to shoot a higher capacity division. During that time was tormenting between Limited and Open, this was when CO was just starting and still had a 10 round capacity. After the capacity rule changed, my mind changed. It was very inexpensive to purchase a red dot and stick on one my production guns. This made it easy to at least try. My thought was try CO, and then maybe consider the investment to shoot Open.
  12. I don’t own a 20ga, but would like to for similar reasons. My Stoeger 3000, is much lighter than my other gas shotguns Remington and Beretta, which is very nice. However, the Stoeger has much more “perceived” felt recoil, which may be a turn off.
  13. Thanks Sarge. I can send in my clear to black lenses but I have lost my Laser Racing Red lenses.
  14. replacement lenses would be great. The frames are still in good shape other than some of the finish wearing off. I have had them for like 5 years or something. I think they were: Rydon ImpactX Laser Racing Red Rydon ImpactX photochromic clear to black
  15. Are there any current Rudy Project Discount Codes? I need to purchase some new lenses.
