  1. The frame rails could be flexing causing the slide to slow down.
  2. Thanks for the information. I am going to load up some of both to try. I will be shooting them out of a 5" 1911 and 5" M&P and from what I can see these both have similar velocities with the same ammo. I would like to have just one load for PCC and pistol but if I can't find what I like then I may just have to have separate loads.
  3. Yeah W231 would be mine as well with coated, just interested what others have tried.
  4. I have been working with these for a little while now for my PCC. I have been loading 3.0 Clays (Old Clays) and it works great. When I tried this load this weekend in my 1911 they were 126PF. I loaded up some to test at 3.2gr and while they worked well in my pistol I had 2 case head separation out of the PCC. Hodgdon load data showed 3.4 as max. I am looking to develop a load that works well in both guns and Clays just isn't going to work. My question is with the other powders I have on hand, W231 and TG what would you suggest.



    Just re-read your post and noticed it didn't reference my home state.  Somehow I thought your "event" occurred here.  

  6. SW,


    Are you willing to share the name of the airline that required one gun per box.  I fly a bunch in the islands and am having trouble with one of the commuter services regarding ammo and guns in the same checked bag (see my post from today (5-3-19).  I'm trying to get clarification from them and am awaiting a response.  It could be a real problem for someone flying in here from the mainland and then making their connection to a smaller island and having to deal with an obscure rule that makes them miss a flight.  How did you reconcile the issue...I presume you flew in from Virginia?

  7. Really depends on your barrel. I run 3.5gr with a 135 blue bullet and get about 133PF in my gun with 16" JP barrel. This load is about 142PF in my other 16" barrel.
  8. I have always liked having a backup gun for whatever division I shoot. I have only had to resort to shooting the backup once and that was with my PCC. I had to rob a firing pin from my backup open gun at nationals last year to repair my primary gun. The best spare parts kit to me is a complete gun.
  9. I have a TR Jig, Power Custom, and the Ed Brown. They all work fine but I find myself using the Ed Brown more than the others. I consistently get triggers that are between 1.5 and 1.75lbs for my 2011s without to much fuss.
  10. I tried MP yesterday for the first time. 9mm mixed brass, 9.5gr using 124gr PD at 1.160" HI=1366 Low=1328 AVG=1350 ES=38 SD=12 The gun is full size with 3 barrel holes. This powder seems very close to AA7 in that it is very fine, fills the case about the same as well. I ended up going up a few tenths to get to 171PF.
  11. I learned I needed to practice shooting on the move more.
  12. Drop them in the hundo primer down, if they fit you know its not the case but the bullet. The GRX will fix brass related issues for sure I have used one for the last couple of years.
  13. Thanks, I fit the magwell this weekend and got the Dawson angled base pads. I think I should be good, I still need to finish setting up my belt and start reading up on the rules.
  14. Thanks, I am planning on shooting IPSC nationals this year so I am trying to get my gear squared away.
  15. Thanks, I was looking at them and most descriptions do not give any detail.
