    Tanfo 9mm major open gun questions

    I have been purchasing the Lovex from here. http://shootersworldpowder.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/04/Shooters-World-Load-Manual-Version04-23-18.pdf I was originally using HS6 and still have 8 Ibs of it. The Major Pistol Powder was recommended by a friend so I tried it and compared to the HS6. I found it to be less reactive. The red dot definetely moved less with the Major Pistol Powder than the HS6. It is a much finer grained powder than the HS6. It takes more weight to obtain a major load.

    Tanfo 9mm major open gun questions

    The extra long comp was tested on the TF Gold and it was then installed on the TF Limited. Those differences were very minimal. Not that noticeable. Does that make since now?

    Tanfo 9mm major open gun questions

    I'm saying that there is a noticeable difference between the 12 ported comp and the durso comp. There is very little difference between the gold with the durso comp and the pictured limited with the durso comp. I don't know how you can be confused if you look at the photo and read what is printed.

    Tanfo 9mm major open gun questions

    I installed the comp from kneelingatlas on my modified Limited and it is great. There was a noticeable difference in the vertical mussel flip compared to the 12 ported TF Gold. I have both pistols and I put the comp onto each and it took a little bit of time to obtain the results. The difference between the Limited and the Gold with the long comp was very minimal. I'm using Lovex Major Pistol Powder. 9.1 grains with a 124 RNJ bullet.

    High capacity 9mm magazine

    I'm not sure why some of the MBX high capacity mags work and some don't. I have the same TF Gold you do and my high capacity MBX won't feed consistently. I have tried every possible adjustment and it just won't feed consistently. Sometimes it will be on the 10th round and other times it will be in the twenties. I actually have two other TF Witness pistols and it won't feed through those either. One of worst things that can happen in competition is a feed problem. It seems as though some people don't have this problem and others do.

    Powder Issue

    It is a Winchester small pistol primer. Not a magnum primer. I was able to try some CCI small pistol primers and the results were better. They obviously are a great deal harder. I only did a total of 10 so the results were not conclusive enough to determine a decision. I may try some more to qualify the results.

    Powder Issue

    Thanks for the information on the primers. I have some CCI small pistol primers and will load some and see what the results are. I know that the CCIs are very hard and sometimes do not work all of the time.

    Powder Issue

    It is a Winchester small pistol primer for standard loads. I have been using them for the last 12 months. But have never had these results before.

    Powder Issue

    I just switched over to a new powder from HS-6 to Major Pistol from Shooters World. It seems as though the pressure that is being created is too great due to the flattening out of the the primer and an actual hole is being created in the center of the primer approximately .040 deep. I have a friend that uses the same powder but doesn't get the same results. He actually has the same lot number that I do on the powder and he is loading for a CZ Czechmate and is obtaining approximately 175 PF. with the same specifications. I'm presently loading a RNJ 124 bullet at 1.165 length . I'm trying to obtain major PF but no matter what load I use I still seem to receive the over pressurized results. The loads have been starting at 9.4 all the way up to 10.1 and all the results have been the same. If anybody any experience with this powder please post. .

    Powder Issue

    According to all the burn rate data this should work. I noticed an improvement going from HS-6 to the Major Pistol. I loaded some HS-6 at 7.9 and there is still a greater amount of muzzle flip and recoil than the Major Pistol. I have stopped using the Major Pistol powder and gone back to the HS-6. I appreciate the feed back and look forward to hearing if anyone has had any of the same experience with this powder. Or if anyone has any suggestions.

    Powder Issue

    I have chronoed the rounds at 9.4, 9.6, 9.8, and 10.1 the only one that is even close to 165 PF is the 10.1 but it came out at 169.0 PF. Here is a photo of the primer that comes out of all the loads. Iv,e stopped testing this powder until I find out whats going on. Thanks For Your Feedback

    Powder Issue

    I was wrong on my typing the picture is exactly what I am using Major Pistol. I have several Tanfoglio pistols and three are setup for open competition. So I was trying to obtain some feed back on this Major Pistol Powder. Thanks

    Powder Issue

    I'm not sure if this is the correct forum for the question I have but I will give it a try. I just switched over to a new powder from HS-6 to Power Pistol from Shooters World. It seems as though the pressure that is being created is too great due to the flattening out of the the primer and an actual hole is being created in the center of the primer approximately .040 to .060 deep. I have a friend that uses the same powder but doesn't get the same results. He actually has the same lot number that I do on the powder. I'm presently loading a RNJ 124 bullet at 1.165 length . I'm trying to obtain major PF but no matter what load I use I still seem to receive the over pressurized results. The loads have been starting at 9.2 all the way up to 10.2 and all the results have been the same. If anybody has any experience with this Please let me know.

    Recommended Gold Team Holster

    I understand what is being described about the one inch upward stroke on the draw. The problem I had was always moving into position from the start? I guess I just needed to do more dry firing and practice to obtain the consistent form of muscle memory to eliminate the interference. I appreciate the information.

    Recommended Gold Team Holster

    I would go with the Guga Ribas. I have the TF Gold Team and I have tried the DAA several times in competition. I tried to modify the insert to accommodate the large trigger guard on the TF. There isn't much room for error when you draw from the DAA do to the angle that you draw the gun from can cause an interference problem. I finally obtained a Guga Riba holster and with all of the adjustments you can obtain a smooth interference free draw.
