  1. Well said. As many have noted on the site, the talk throughs of their own training sessions have been surprisingly helpful (in addition to all of the obvious other things they provide). I’ll add that the fact that Ben and Hwansik are so different in so many ways is a great benefit in their teaming up on this. Frankly, they are both serious students of the game and in teaching & helping people get better. The pace of evolution on both fronts is very impressive.
  2. Yes, there’s a regular introduction class: http://www.richmondhotshots.com/intro_to_ipsc Also on the site is a link to the calendar of events. E.g., USPSA practice generally every Saturday morning.
  3. Make sure you’re getting enough case expansion (not just mouth flare) so the bullet base consistently drops deep enough to be stable.
  4. Nope. What pads are you using? FYI, I’m running new style SVI tubes, grams guts, TTI 4g base pads -> 21 reloadable and fits the mag gauge.
  5. This has been an issue since they started the company so don’t hold your breath. And for the record I’ve been a customer for awhile. Frankly, their attitude on this is silly.
  6. Just load and shoot what you’ve already got. It’s not like it’s going to hurt the barrel. Buy some coated and test them against the plated heads up. And then start buying in bulk. :-)
  7. No leading problems with any of the good quality coated through either the SV TiN or DLC coated barrels that I’ve tested. Including Acme, Blue, Bayou, Ibejiheads.
  8. FWIW, I switched to the Ibejiheads 180’s .401 diameter and cut my SD and ES by 30+% over those Blues (which are .400)
  9. Coated work great. Test with different diameters to find which one works best for you. The AET barrels have a tendency to strip the plating. The newer generation supposedly do that less but why bother? The good quality coated shoot at least as well and are cheaper.
  10. Yes, the GRX will get rid of that bulge. If you’re shooting a lot then a roll sizer is a lot more efficient.
  11. FWIW, Mike Seeklander just talked about Steel Challenge with Max Michel: http:// http://americanwarriorshow.libsyn.com/max-michel-a-world-champion-shares-his-steel-challenge-secrets
  12. For pistol, I wet tumble with pins (not ultrasonic) with a wash & wax, rinse well, dry in a dehydrator, then load them. No weird gunk just clean the press normally. So, not sure what your process is missing.
  13. Results are not necessarily linear. Assuming you're not using a labradar or magnetospeed, you should be 10 feet from the chrono. Follow the best practices for reloading and test carefully. There's a variety of good reloading manuals out there. Vihtavuori's in available online but it's good to read a few.
  14. Isn't it Leatham who's settled for having his prescription done in between? I.e. Making the focal distance e.g. 15 yards. So they are both somewhat blurry. Personally, I just got my first progressives. Still learning to tilt my head back for a crisper sight picture when I need it with the pistol. No problem with shotgun or rifle.
