  1. A year ago I think definitely not. Now though it could be possible but only internal weight reduction would be required. Any external such as slide cuts immediately puts you into ESP. I think CZC was working on this a while back where they took more weight not just out of the slide but also out of the frame In areas that were not external Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  2. Id like to add my name to the list for 9mm once fired matching headstamp. Thank you
  3. No mine is fine same lot Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  4. This is in regards to both slide mounted optics, no frame mounted comparison. Slide milled direct for optic versus slide milled with a plate adapter system for optic. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  5. this is also worth a shot at looking at. But to make sure your scale is calibrated. Probably the least likely but worth a look.
  6. I use AA7 mostly but have been playing with the SWM. In fact i have 16pounds of AA7 arriving today. I find the SWM a tiny bit softer but it seems much fiber powder and was giving me consistency issues with my powder measure. I don’t know for sure if it is fact finer but it appears that way, i would have to measure two charges side by side. The powder measure issue may be related to other issues though I haven’t diagnosed yet. The AA7 has been very reliable for me and I don’t think you can go wrong either way.

  7. Your doing all the right things then! Many times people aren’t and that’s usually where the problem starts. Extra kudos shooting from the rest for a straight bullet path, that’s a true chrono pro tip lol. I am shooting out of a PT Honcho with no Popple holes. The barrel is 4.25” and then 2 1/8” of comp. Running OAL at 1.165 and 124gn JHP from Precision Delta. Being that my barrel is 3/4” shorter than yours I think it’s normal that I would have almost a 7-10% reduction in velocity. Hence I need more powder to make PF. This is consistent with other Honcho owners and many other open gun owner
  8. They are very backed up. I have always had a reliable experience with them. I ordered mid March and got my shipment just 3 days ago so they are about 3 weeks from order to delivery due to COVID. Great bullets and great price. They will sort it out for you. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  9. Can you post your specs? It looks like two other guys have this lot now too but havnt heard anything bad about it from them. It seems to fine for me.
  10. What do you mean so much powder? I am using 10.1 for 124 bullet. I incorrectly stated my PF it’s at 169 for that load and it’s at 171 for my previous load at 10.2. I think that’s normal. Heavier bullets typically require less powder due to longer length. Other factors come into play tho like what gun are you shooting, what barrel length, and do you have popple holes? I am in NJ and my last chrono session was at 53F for the temp and 30.4 for the barometric pressure. How far is your chrono from the end of your barrel? Mine is exactly 10 feet away
  11. 10.1 grains gets me to about 171 PF under a 124 precision delta JHP. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  12. Here is the lot I received. This was from Powder Valley about 2 months ago I think. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  13. This is just comparing both slide mounted options. Direct milling into slide and then adapter plate on slide. Frame mounted is a different ballpark. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  14. this is a very interesting variable that I did not think of! Thanks for sharing
  15. In full disclosure this is related to slide mounted optics opposed to a true open pistol. I didn’t find a carry optic topic so figured could go here. Currently debating a statement a fellow shooter made, “several instructors report that they see most slide mounted optic failures, on steel framed guns with a direct milled optic compared to plate mounted systems on polymer guns (think MOS). Because of this they believe that the plate mounted systems last longer due to the plate providing a buffer mitigating “harmonics” aspect of recoil and thus increased wear on the optic.“
