    Cylinder modifications for USPSA Revolver

    I bought a slightly used 610 that the cylinder and extractor had been aggressively chamfered . In just a few months of shooting local IDPA matches with the 610 the tips of the extractor started breaking off . This didn't really affect extraction because I was using moonclips but the cosmetics bothered me and had to have Eli at TK Custom to install and time a new extractor . Since then any revolver I'm doing cylinder work on I make sure to go easy on the extractor and just break the edges slightly. FWIW
  2. That's good to know . 2.7 grs was kinda what I was thinking about and seat the 165 gr. bullet same depth in case as 160 gr. bullet.
  3. My current 38 Short Colt load is 160 gr. .358" LRN seated to 1.19" OAL and 3.0 grs RamShot Competition . I was thinking of trying the 165 gr. Ibejihead bullet which I like in 38 special . Not sure what OAL to try and how much to reduce my current powder load . I was hoping someone else has tried this bullet in 38SC .

    686 cylinder pin keeps loosening.

    There are several tools you can buy but the chuck on a small hand drill works just fine to tighten extractor rod . However don't use it like a drill just tighten the chuck on the rod and turn by hand .

    .38spcl IDPA load

    I shoot mostly Ibejihead 160 RN and the 165 gr. NLG RN is a really great bullet . I will use Bayou 160 gr. when he runs a free shipping special on a case order. My Dillon 550 will not meter Clay, Clay Dot or American Select powders consistently so I've settled on RamShot Competition as it's clean burning and doesn't seem to be as position sensitive as some powders. I am loading 3.0 grs with the 160 gr. and 2.8 grs with the 165 gr. NLG both with a 1.53" OAL at about 112 PF from a 4" S&W 66 .

    Personal ranges

    Here is a picture of a little pistol shooting area that I have set up at our farm. I set it up in what I think is an old, old quarry as it has three sides which prevents any stray rounds leaving the range . It is a work in progress as you can see....

    Moon clips for gp100 match champion

    My TK .040" 40 S&W moon clips arrived today and I was able to give them a try. First off I found that R-P headstamp brass fit loose but would not fall out when reloading but the Win brass still fit the best . The extra thickness of this moonclip seems to have solved my primer light strikes and was even able to go back to a 9 lb. hammer spring with no misfires . So, in all these moonclips were everything I had hoped for and plan to be shooting the 10mm gp-100 in my next IDPA match just for something different.

    Moon clips for gp100 match champion

    I failed to mention in my post about my moonclip experience with my GP-100 has been with 40 S&W . Although I have 300 pieces of new Starline 10mm Auto brass all my shooting has been with 40 S&W reloads. With my S&W 610 I can use the same moonclips with 40 S&W and 10mm with no problems however with the Ruger GP-100 moonclips there is a headspace problem using .032" moonclips (and I have experienced light strikes using Federal primers with 40 S&W brass with .032" moonclips) . TK is making a moonclip .040" just for 40 S&W that will hopefully take care of my light strikes . I have ordered some to try and if they work I might just be able to go with a lighter hammer spring. I had high hopes of using this pistol in IDPA for something different as I usually shoot speedloader fed S&W revolvers but the light strikes have been problematic.

    Moon clips for gp100 match champion

    I had missed this too . Probably explains my other issue with the 10mm GP-100.

    Moon clips for gp100 match champion

    I realize this is an old post but just recently bought a GP-100 10mm and thought I would share my moonclip experience in case it helps someone else. I purchased a pack of 10 TK moonclips for the GP 100 10mm Match Champion and found the fit was too loose with just about any brass except for Win headstamp. Federal was also loose but would remain in moonclip from holder on belt to cylinder during reload . R-P and Starline brass would not stay in moonclip during reload as I would have at least one cartridge fall out. With Win brass the TK moonclips work great and this combination is my choice for matches . I am using Ruger moonclips to shoot the non-Win headstamp ammo I have already loaded for my 646.

    Paul the friend of mine that got me into shooting IDPA and then shooting REV in IDPA is shooting a 38/357 4" Chiappa and doing quite well . He won REV division at the VA State IDPA match this year and REV Division at The Carolina Cup two weeks ago . He uses Comp III speedloaders that he has cut down and he also has to alter the internals slightly to get them to release the cartridges in the Rhino cylinder. The only problem I am aware of that he has had with the Rhino was breaking a firing pin at a local match . The firing pin broke after thousands of dry fires in practice and a year of monthly matches I thinking. It is a real treat to watch him shoot and hope to be as good as him when I grow up.

    Loaded Moonclip Storage

    Yes, I got the Delrin sheet and Aluminium rod from McMaster-Carr . I tapped a hole in the flat end of rods and ran a countersunk screw from the bottom of Delrin sheet to fasten .

    Loaded Moonclip Storage

    I made this stand for 625 loaded moonclips to fit in the Snapon toolbag that also serves as a seat . It holds more than enough loaded moonclips for a 6 stage IDPA match.

    carry optics division

    I had heard that Carry Optics was SSP with optics but reading the allowed modifications in the provisional rules it lists mag wells as allowed . Is that how you all read it ? The reason I ask is I'm thinking of milling the slide for an optic sight on a P-09 that I have installed a mag well on that I used to shoot in ESP.
