  1. Thanks for the replies. I just want to load some stuff for plinking and can be used in all the guns. For my competition guns I load long and it won't work in some of the pistols. When the kids want to shoot, they want to try all the guns and it gets to be a pain figuring out which ammo fits what gun and I'm hoping to find a length that will work in them all and it will simplify things. Thanks again for the info and I'll try some at 1.100 and see how it works. Tim
  2. Hello, I would like to load some precision delta 124 jhp that will work in all my 9mm guns (sti, glock, sig, springfield, cz, h&k, and Kimber) and need some help with the best oal to use for all these pistols. Thanks, Tim
  3. I have loaded some 124 bayou out to 1.175 and they function in my Edge. I think most sti pistols are long throated and will handle pretty long oal ammo.
  4. Hello, I went with a jp and am very happy with it. I am not a master shooter and probably never will be so you need to weigh that in my choice. A friend has the mpx and it is a nice gun, He is a better shooter than me but I beat him about half the time because he has ammo problems. Last week he had two malfunctions on one stage and had to take a 25 second score which let me beat him in the overall. The jp will run my uspsa ammo loaded long or factory 115 grain. I like the reliability of the jp and for my skill level I can't see an advantage to the mpx and the initial cost for the mpx and gear is greater. Tim
  5. I like the safariland els belts, they lock over two pins and have a double belt system. They are secure and stay where you adjust them Tim
  6. Hello, Thinking of getting into steel challenge shooting and would like info on the tacsol vantage rifle. I can get a new one for around $800.00 and wanted opinions on if I should get a cheap 10-22 and build or is the vantage worth the money considering I will get all the goodies and their action. Thanks, Tim
  7. Hello, I asked the rep at grams about using their springs and followers in mbx magazines and he said he would not recommend it. There kits are listed for many brands but not mbx. He said the design of the mbx mag is not good with their mag kits. He said a lot of people use them but he would not recommend it. Tim
  8. What is a stock ll? I have never heard of them. Tim
  9. I have been shooting 1911 for years and was wondering which carry optic gun feels most like a 1911 in the hand. I tried a sig and seemed to have to bend my wrist down to see the optic. I tried a m&p and it felt the same. Is there a co gun that feels like a 1911? Any input is appreciated. Tim
  10. Thanks for the replies. Guess I should have elaborated a little on what I will be shooting. I will shoot uspsa matches and won't be shooting over 50 yards. I have a jp13 with a long throat that I have been shooting 124 grain bayou at 1.170, the same load as my limited pistol. I was thinking that jacketed might be a little cleaner in the barrel and comp. I see a lot of shooters using 147 gr. and was considering hollow points for the accuracy. Thanks, Tim
  11. Hello, I am thinking of shooting jacketed bullets out of my pcc and was wondering what weight and manufacture bullets would be best. I hear precision delta are good as well as Montana gold, any thoughts. Do most recommend hollow points or fmj. Thanks, Tim
  12. Hello, Focus camera has a memorial day sale going on and I got a aluminum 6moa with click switch for $261.80. I figured that I couldn't go wrong at that price and I like the added strength of the aluminum housing as I will be using the gun for things other than uspsa.. I'm not going to be scaring any of the top shooters with my blazing speed so a little extra weight won't be a problem. I think I will enjoy the pcc division. Most of the pcc shooters in our club shoot their pistols and then run the course a second time with their pcc. I was surprised that in some stages they are fasters with the handgun. Last week, we had handgun targets at 45 yards and the pcc guys were cleaning up on the pistol shooters. It will be fun to play around and see which gun I can run faster. Thanks, Tim
  13. Hello, I bought a jp-gmr 13 9mm and want to get a c-more railway sight. I have decided on a 6 moa dot but want some advise on a couple things. Do I need the tactical or standard railway to get the right height? Which switch is better, the click or standard, and is the polymer or aluminum body a better choice? Any advise would be appreciated. Thanks, Tim
