  1. I have a case of Acme 147s I put in the classified section last night. Available to ship tomorrow.
  2. I ream my own and have the reamer that Brownell's sells. Solid Carbide. Don't try to go cheap with a HSS. I've done several of my own and lent out the reamer once. Still very sharp.
  3. Show up at a match here in IL and if you see a giant of a redhead, a head taller than anyone around him and has hands that look like someone is walking around with hams at the end his arms, you've now found him. He does not hide easily in a crowd.
  4. That is part of the beauty of living 2 hours from Mark. First one I picked up at his house and the second got delivered at a match. Just kind of came home in the range bag.
  5. Order the second, you won't be disappointed. I knew the first one was going to be great. Didn't even need to look elsewhere when I ordered the second a week later.
  6. My go to production powder. 3.4gr under a SnS 147 or 3.8gr under a 125gr.
  7. Where would you put a thumb rest for the strong hand thumb? You can get a wide safety that acts as kind of a thumb rest.
  8. I believe he has to be a Haz-Mat authorized shipper. So registered with UPS or FedEx. USPS doesn't do primers.
  9. I have a 100ct box of Everglades 147s that you can use to try to work up a load for major if you want. My initial trial with them doesn't give me much confidence that I would be successful in finding a load for my guns.
  10. I was given some 147gr open major loads by a local guy that worked up a load for an open Sig X5 Legion. I tried them in my Carne with poppel holes and 2 port comp. Dot completely left the glass on recoil. Very jumpy. With my normal loads of 124gr the dot moves straight up and down using about half the glass overall. The 147gr made it look like the dot was doing a figure 8 with the dot leaving the glass at the top and bottom.
  11. I use all range pickup brass and unless it has a step in it or the bullet setback perf, it gets loaded and shot.
  12. I've only worked a hand full of Level II and III matches the past couple years. There can be a bit of a shortage on ROs at some of the stuff this year. Worked the Indiana Section last weekend and for the first time worked as an embedded RO. Here is my take on the RO situation for staffing these matches: There should be a staff hotel where people don't have to make their own reservations and 2 people per room or pay 1/2 for private. Person real local then give them the cost of hotel room to cover travel costs. Lunch should be provided for staff and if they don't want it can brin
  13. Exactly. It is a courtesy to the staff that put on the match and gives a place for competitors to compete. If some people that just want to show up and shoot then go home knew how many hours a couple people for a local match actually puts into holding monthly locals they would shut their mouths and tear down the stage then thank the staff for giving them a place to shoot for the princely sum of $15-25 for a 6-7 stage match. The clubs I mainly shoot at all offer discounts for setup crew and then tear down is the responsibility of each squad on the stage they finish on. If we had
