Finally read the FAQs

Finally read the FAQs (3/11)

  1. You're welcome. The regional and state matches are. Not all of the monthly matches are sanctioned.
  2. Here you go. http://www.chambersburgpistolandrifleclub.com/matches.html We were shooting a regional and state match in Bedford VA but no more. Just monthly matches.
  3. They did mention bringing it back at the awards dinner. We haven't had it in at least 10 years. You should have made the trip down to Chambersburg last weekend. They put on a great match. Gary Valentino even made it. Not many shooters left in NY.
  4. I'm still shooting it. No problems getting brass. I even get my brass handed back to me. Lol
  5. My load runs the same. A hand loaded round always shoots lower than a gun fed round. I've found that the shorter OAL helps the temp sensitivity a considerable amount.
  6. I noticed you stayed away from the 470 club this time. What was the bullet, OAL and crimp on the rounds? 124pf is a little too close for me.
  7. OAL with a Zero 115 is 1.220". This eliminates the temp sensitivity. Crimp is .477 to .478. Use NO MORE than 4.8 grains. I cannot stress this enough!! This load is right at the edge of the pressure curve.
  8. I have received approval, from the match directors, to announce the East Coast Action Pistol Triple Cup Challenge. Matches will be as follows: Michigan Regional May 18, 2019 Pennsylvania Regional July 20, 2019 Virginia Regional September 28, 2019 Awards will be first, second and third in Open, Metallic and Production. A shooter must shoot all three matches to qualify. Awards will be presented after the Virginia regional awards in September. As soon as I get the Virginia match documents finished, I'll post them also. 2019 REGIONAL PROGRAM.docx 2019 REGIONAL ENTRY FORMa.docx 2019 sunset combined.doc
  9. Shoot a club match or a regional. I know they shoot in Hutch. There's also a club in Bates City, MO. You'll get more enjoyment out of shooting those instead of Bianchi.
  10. You're welcome. Let me know how it works out. I have an astigmatism that makes small dots go figure 8 pattern. I believe I heard that match was cancelled. Better check with Dave.
  11. Ed, They hold up pretty well. He's still using one. Been looking at them myself as I'm not a big fan of the Ultradot small tube. Obviously it works well though.
  12. The key is to not struggle up close. When the buzzer goes off, get the gun on target as fast as you can and get the shots as close to the middle as possible. A shot may go near the edge up close but I adjust as I go along. Shooting at pasters went away with the black dot. You could always see a paster on the old targets and most would shoot for it because you couldn't really see a ring.
  13. I have a montra that I started saying to myself years ago and still do it. It's dot trigger. When the dot is on my black mark on the plate, I pull the trigger. I say this in my mind for every plate, everytime. When I hit a plate outside of my mark it's because I jerked the trigger. If I was shooting for red on white, that jerk could be a missed plate. In Metallic, I use a 3 step montra. It's sight, freeze, squeeze. Works every time.
  14. No. It provides the lead on the mover so all we have to do is aim at the center.
