  1. I own both the 625 PC and the 625 JM but both are wearing Hogue rubber grips . I use both for IDPA and my favorite is the 625 PC . I like the half lug and it seems to me the shorter cylinder helps with a slightly lighter trigger pull . Most 625 revolver shooters I have run into and talked too seem to favor the full lug barrel of the 625 JM . I have tried to like the 625 JM but always come back to the 625 PC.
  2. Using the black TK moonclips for the S&W 610 I have found that Winchester or Speer brass fit them the best . These are the same moonclips that S&W ship with a new 610.
  3. I use an OAL of 1.19 for any of the 160 gr. coated RN bullets . My load is 3 grs of Ramshot Competition , Federal SP primer, Starline brass ans 160 gr. RN bullet from SNS, Summers , or Ibejiheads.
  4. Hello , can I just buy bcg ?

      I need to keep the BCG with the receiver as it is the only BCG I've got that is tapped for the handles needed for the side bolt DD receiver .

  5. The only revolvers I have that would benefit with that modification would be my 617's . About all the 22lr ammo I have used leaves lots of unburnt powder residue under the star . My centerfire revolvers with the right powder I've never had that problem.
  6. For EDC and IDPA I wear a Comp-Tac leather belt that is reinforced with Kydex . They look good enough for everyday wear but are sturdy enough for competition use and last for years .
  7. I like RamShot Competition powder for 38 Short Colt and 38 Special . Measures good , fairly clean with no unburnt kernels to get under extractor and as accurate as anything else I've tried . I just cannot get Clay Dot , Clay's, American Select or e3 to measure accurately day in and day out from my 550. I've tried aquarium pumps small powder bar , polishing internals and just cannot get large flake powders to measure accurately . I might be too OCD( from my Benchrest shooting background) but 0.01 grs. or greater of variance are just not acceptable to me .
  8. When I shoot my revolver in a steel challenge match I'll take whatever ammo I've got the most of loaded . Sometimes it's 38 Short Colt loaded for USPSA sometimes it's 38 special loaded for IDPA and sometimes both . If I switch from 38 short colt to 38 special during a match I'll brush the cylinders . I found that those plastic brushes Glock sends out with every Glock pistol works fine for this .
  9. That's good to know . When I had the extra money I was going to buy the pistol caliber tool just to have . 90% of the pistol bullets I use are coated . I would have thought jacketed bullets were slicker than Hi-tec coating and the tool grips jacketed rifle bullets with very little pressure applied so I never thought that coated bullets would be a problem.
  10. I just purchased a grip-in-pull tool for rifle calibers to pull a bunch of 223 bullets for the brass and if there pistol caliber version works as well as this rifle caliber tool it would be just the ticket for chrono stages . It is pricey and you would have to mount a small reloading press to the table but dang this thing works with a lot less effort than the hammer type "pullers".. Here is the link to check it out : https://grip-n-pull.com/
  11. I am so used to my Smith and Wesson revolvers I just couldn't get used to the Ruger and ended up selling my GP100- Match Champion in 10mm . However the last match I shot with it I used 40 S&W reloads with Federal primers and it worked flawlessly with the TK moonclips for 40 S&W . Changing the springs and using Federal primers it would be easy to get to a 6 1/2 to 7 lb. DA trigger pull weight with no light strikes . Also, Bowen makes an extended firing pin that would also aid in the endeavor to a light DA pull weight with no light strikes.
  12. Double Alfa has the new waterproof IDPA targets listed but are backordered as of yesterday . I ordered 50 USPSA waterproof targets and can say they are a better alternative to bagging targets and drooping heads.
  13. A powder that I like very much for IDPA 45 acp loads that I didn't see mentioned is Vectan Ba-10 . I use it with 230 gr coated RN bullets and really like the feel of it .
  14. I switch back and forth between shooting speedloaders and moonclips. I have somewhat better scores shooting my S&W 66-5 and speedloaders vs my 625 and moonclips . For me shooting 38 special minor my splits are faster and reloads a little slower . Shooting 45 ACP major with moonclips my splits are slower with a faster reload . This time of year when our ranges are muddy or snow covered I like having to pick up my brass in moonclips vs singularly . So in winter I'm shooting the 625 or my 610 however I usually always shoot bigger matches using speedloaders and 38 special as I feel I'm more ac

      I am sorry I never saw your post about the buffer until I sold the buffer to someone else.  I had asked for PM messages and went by those . Usually my items never sell that quickly and I would lose track of the post as it would be several pages back and hard for me to find quickly . So, I started asking for PM messages if someone was interested . However there is no excuse for me missing your post as you posted it just minutes after I put my for sale topic up and for that I apologize .
