  1. Have you tried different ammo? My M2 will do that with certain types of ammo. Winchester, Federal, Rio all cause problems. Fiocchi runs all day. I think it has something to do with the shape of the crimp. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  2. It’s all about the reload in my opinion. Round nose will find their way into the cylinder better than flat nose. Try some of both and see where you have the more success. 200 or 230 is a personal preference.
  3. I do the same without the SS pins. Works great and I never have to worry about pins stuck in the primer hole. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

  7. Seems to be a theme developing! LTD minor is not a wise choice. If you are stuck on shooting LTD, buy a .40. If you want to shoot only 9mm, pick another division; Production or CO. When I was starting out, many time I was given good advice but stubbornly went my own way. It cost me a lot of money trading gear and guns when I finally saw the light. Don’t be like me!

  8. The only two things I don't like; it came as a series 80 and it does not fit in a standard 1911 holster. For my 40 I removed the Series 80 parts and installed a spacer. Did some trigger work on both and they have a crisp 2.5lb pull. The 45 I use for IDPA that still has the Series 80 parts is just a touch mushier than the 40. Sigs have a unique slide profile. I used a Bladetech OWB for a while with extra spacers. Then purchased a DAA PDR Pro II which worked great. Most recently I bought a GX Products holster for IDPA and it may be the best holster I own! Tempted to sell the DAA holster and orde
  9. I have 2 Sig 1911 Max’s I use in SS. One in 40 and one in 45. Decent guns for the money. The external extractor turns the traditionalists off but they run. Just sold a Springfield Range Officer in 9mm. It was a little to fussy about ammo. A 9mm 1911 shoots great. May replace it with a Dan Wesson PM9. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  10. I apologize if I did something wrong. I offered a heck of a deal on the GPS backpack thinking you might like it as well and save some cash. Someone took me up on the offer. It was not my intent to hijack your post. They just responded and then I took it off your post to a PM. Again, please forgive me if I stepped on anyone's toes. It was not intentional.


    If it is any help, if you are set on a backpack style range bag, the GPS is a good alternative to the DAA. I just didn't like the backpack style after trying it. Now if you put it on the DAA cart that may be a decent alternative. I now use a Alpha Dynamics small range bag and it is perfect for monthly matches and regular range use. 


    Again, please accept my apology!

      No worries Joe, and I appreciate you reaching out.  No offense taken.  You did absolutely the right thing.  My issue was with someone else jumping on your offer before I even had a chance to see it.  


      Again, no worries.




  11. I can't say for sure with 9mm but Precision Delta 40 match ammo runs 169 PF out of my Atlas Titan and 170 out of my Sig 1911 Max. It would be my assumption their 9mm would be similar as they load for competition use. I have used Freedom's ProMatch some in the past as well. It ran a little hotter but still under 175. I just don't trust Freedom/Xtreme much lately. I ordered 5000 200gr 40's and received mixed boxes of 180's and 200's. Cost me at a major last year. I got bumped down to minor because the bullets were 180's but loaded for 200's. Never thought to weigh the bullets before but I do
  12. So Sean_ht 's original question is weather he needed to shoot hand loaded ammo to make GM. Personally the ammo has a very small impact on the ability to manipulate the gun to make GM. The discussion has gone towards the cost. If he wants to shoot lower power factor loads in 9mm or 40 but does not want to invest the time and money into reloading, I think the best option is a reputable manufacturer of competition specific ammo (regardless of cost). Precision Delta, NCShooters, Outdoor Dynamics...etc. all offer both practice and match ammo that would keep the PF around 130 for 9mm and 170 fo
  13. There are also a lot of excellent companies offering factory loaded/reloaded ammo for competition use. Lower power factor than regular factory ammo and very accurate and reliable. Precision Delta, NCShooters and Outdoor Dynamics are good examples. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  14. I agree with [mention=48449]rowdyb[/mention], if you are just trying to have fun and get better then shoot what you have. If you change your mind later and want to be more competitive then you can change your equipment. With two small ones, your time may be limited anyway. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  15. I have 2 Sig Max 1911’s, one in 40 and one in 45. I bought the 45 to shoot IDPA CDP and the 40 to shoot USPSA SS. Like mentioned above, 40 is cheaper and I already load it for LTD. Not sure I would download to minor for SS. If I wanted to shoot minor, I’d get a 9mm. Now I will say the Sig in 40 is a little more finicky. 45 just runs. Could be mag issues but I have only had issues with the 40. Good guns for the money but they are Series 80’s. That may upset some people. You can replace the 80 parts with a spacer for USPSA but you can’t disengage safeties in IDPA. Sent from my iPad using Tapa
