    Dedicated PCC load

    I've switched over to Sport Pistol from Titegroup. It's softer and much cleaner. Takes about .2 - .3 more to achieve similar pf as Titegroup. 2.5/147 blue bullet. Right at 130pf. I bought the aftermarket Dillon powder bar with the micrometer. Well worth it. Very consistent drops. Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk

    Ar9 bolt weight removal

    It's all feel. Obviously a lighter bolt and buffer means less reciprocating mass. The con is that too light and you can create a dangerous situation. The AR9 has no locking mechanism to keep the bolt closed during ignition. It needs weight and spring tension. I'm at 17oz. Combined buffer/bcg weight. No issues. Nice and soft.

  3. I think you need to quantify a bit with regards to distance you are shooting for accuracy. I currently prefer a subsonic load about 130pf. The dot stays put. I have also shot snappier loads and strived to make the dot return very fast. Both are valid. However, I am shooting mostly inside 25 yards for USPSA. Accuracy isn't a real issue to achieve.

    How heavy, is too heavy?

    No experience with that one. Curious about it as well. I think the coda evolution ones are pretty cool and are 8oz. Planning on a new build using one this winter. https://codaevolution.com/collections/handguards Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk

    Lol. Physique is definitely a better term. Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk

    And backing up. Particularly with your weak side leading up range. Just had a stage like this. Had to treat it like a pistol and keep it down range while I ran up. Other than that YMMV for sure. Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk

    I dont think there's an answer that is right here. I will say that I don't see any top PCC shooters. (max, froelich) shooting ultra light weight guns, and that gun weight is over thought. I feel you should be able to one hand the gun when running if need be. What that looks like for anyone is dependent on their personal physics. Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
  8. Taccom extreme. I believe the Faxxon and Taccom are the same bolt. Taccom coats theirs and changes the gas key which is recommended. The nickel boron coating is nice. I have well over 20k rounds on mine and it's not as slick as it was but I think that's expected. Still much easier to clean. Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk

    What kind of bullets are you feeding your PCC?

    Currently 147 blue bullets with Titegroup. Comp does get dirty with coated, but I'm trying sport pistol powder currently and it's somewhat better. Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk

    new pcc classification calculator

    Use the uspsa calculator. It's on the classifications page after you login to USPSA. Yes, HHF were updated a while back. Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk

    45 degree offset optic

    Leans are tough, and they will burn you if you don't plan for them. Many is the time I thought. "I can make it", only to find I in fact could not make it! OR to see wood flying as I shoot through a wall. Now I walk leans on stages holding my strong arm extended with my offhand like it's a muzzle. It's not a prop, so it's legal per USPSA. Helps somewhat in gauging the situation. Have fun!

    45 degree offset optic

    I've never seen the need for one in USPSA. There are some tough weak side leans at times, but these can be negotiated with the following techniques. (eye problem not withstanding). 1. Go weak hand, weak shoulder. Sucks 2. Go weak shoulder, strong hand. Pull your off hand to the magwell. Less sucky 3. Stay strong shoulder, and pull your off hand to the magwell. You will gain a few inches. Preferred 4. Go sideways and just turn your head. 5. Try using a laser and practice holding the gun off your shoulder for the shot. Hokey, but can be used on short distance leans. I just shove my muzzle around the wall. #2 and #3 and #4 will get you far. Far be it from me to suggest not buying more toys though! However, I don't think an offset optic will solve really tough leans.

    which comp for 9mm PCC ?

    I'd recommend you don't bother. You'll get further with a soft charge than a comp. I added a comp, and now I just have more stuff to clean. If you are dead set on it. I would look at coda evolution. https://codaevolution.com/collections/compensators/products/fury-titanium-compensator-9mm-flame-anodised

    Czechmate Minor Question

    I really enjoy what little I have done, but you are correct. That dot traverse both sides of the horizontal axis. I actually catch it on the way back up as opposed on the way down. Very challenging.

    Czechmate Minor Question

    Fair enough. I'm assuming everyone in CO is fighting the same battle. I haven't spent enough time with it to know much. It's my plan for when we come inside for the winter.
