Finally read the FAQs

Finally read the FAQs (3/11)

  1. Check out available pistols from CZ Custom. They normally have tuned SP-01 shadow or shadow 1 frame guns with RDS plate cut available. I prefer the shorter frame pistols so it was a good option for me. Stuart is great to accommodate whatever your needs are.
  2. I have a set of Ruby’s I use with fiber optic front sight. I like them a lot, the contrast is great and yes the red fiber does pop out really good. The only downside so far is they do need a fair amount of sunlight. On cloudy days where it’s not very bright I prefer the gold hd lenses. I would purchase them again.
  3. Have you checked the depth of the hold down die in the swage station. Maybe the mark could be from upward pressure caused by the swage rod?
  4. Welcome Josh, I’m in central Mo also. I’m sure I’ll see you at Ozarks classic.
  5. I’m using #12 sprinco with 5.4 sv sighttracker barrel, 40 major.
  6. Another alternative to bulge busting is to case pro the brass before loading. This made my failure rate nearly nonexistent.
  7. If it’s all the same brass I’d check the swage rod adjustment, might have some tight primer pockets.
  8. I have had some rounds look like that before but when it happened the press bound up decapping a piece of brass, I found my decapping pin was bent. I chalked it up to the vibration moving the primer out of position at the exact time it’s being seated.
  9. I’ve loaded quite a bit of Nobel sport Vectan BA-10 with both coated and fmj 115 bullets. Seems to work well down into the 90 power factor range if you tune the pistol for it.
  10. I’ve had good results with 115 grain coated bullet using Vectan BA-10, about 3 grains is good when sprung properly.
  11. I’ve loaded several 115 bbi with 3.0 grains of BA-10 for steel challenge. It required recoil spring tuning in my 2011 but is very consistent
  12. For 1911/2011 I use slide glide on everything except recoil spring and guide rod, it gets Wilson combat grease. If it’s lightly sprung gun for steel challenge or cold weather everything gets oil only.
  13. Hello Swoody, there’s a good uspsa match at BRRC it’s in Wright city on 2nd Saturday of each month. Uspsa matches in Columbia at Green Valley on the 4th saturday and COPS range near rolla on the first Sunday. See you when the corona virus dies off.
