    First Night Match-Gearing Up

    IF you are looking for a good light the Streamlight hlX protac rail mount is really good and at about $110 it doesn't kill the bank either. It also comes with a pressure swith that has a standard on/off button as well as the momentary switch. I haven't shot that particular night match but the ones I have shot with a PCC a good light like that was plenty. I did run into issues when using a head lamp and red dot, the dot was washing out from behind as well as a reflection on the lens.
  2. I regularly shoot Open, CO, PCC, RFRO. and RFPO. Will sometimes throw in the iron sight divisions. I rotate each through out the year because we shoot a 4 stage match twice a week for 26 weeks straight every year. I do buckle down for a few weeks on my more important divisions when WSSC and larger matches come about. Changing it up helps keep it interesting for me. I only really setup and practice RFRO, PCC, and OPEN outside of the weekly matches. I don't believe it helps or hinders me to shoot this many different guns throughout the year.
  3. I don't ever run the big sticks but sometimes ifI'm shooting co and pcc back to back I'll take my limited mags and load them to 22 then I only need to take 5 mags instead of 11 which is nice. Otherwise I usually load prod mags to 10. If you are in the moment and doing a simple in between string mag change screws you up, you definitely have bigger problems then a mag change. But at the end of the day everyone has their own routine and does what works for them, so who am I to say they are wrong.

    Vortex Razor

    I run once on both my co and open 9 major gun without any problems yet. Have 5k+ on co gun and less than 3.5k on the open so only a small sample size but no issues yet.

    Caldwell Brass Catcher

    We have a couple guys at our steel challenge club that use them and really like them... I would use one for practice but don't believe I would use one in a match. Not shootingthe pcc currently but I may snag one up anyways for when I start again.

    9 mm bullet puller

    I also prefer the hornady camlock over the hammer even with just the occasional screw up. I just pull my fcd die in my lnl and throw the cam lock puller in that position. I only load 9mm so its already adjusted.

    Hey Zack is the prize table going to be limited to just Centerfire entries again this year beings the Rimfire/PCC entries seem to make up a large portion of entries? I would also assume it will be order of finish?

    Compensators allowed on RFPI

    The allchin on a 4.5 is what I use as well as with auto match it seems to be decently effective and very easy to maintain

    NEW SCSA Rules ?

    I agree I don't like this new rule at all.

    Compensators allowed on RFPI

    Some people I shoot with think the 6" with comp is too long and doesn't feel balance. I shoot with a 4.5" ruger steel barrel with comp and really like the balance.

    Compensators allowed on RFPI

    The same goes for rifle. The new rule book is posted on the Steel Challenge website.

    Enter DNF for New CF Shooters at Low Ready?

    So you are saying just make 1 novice division to cover ss, open, limited, rimfire,etc...? Or a separate novice division for each? I dont see how just omitting the uspsa number isn't the best and most efficient solution. They still get to see results on practiscore so what's the big deal really. Only the official stages even really matter for classification status so unofficial stages aren't really relevant. There's a good chance I just don't know anything though so take it for what it's worth.

    Pump for beginner in Steel Challenge?

    only issues I've seen with pumps is they are pretty quiet so be aware that some reshoots may happen. other thing being safe using the loading tubes if the mag tube is on the barrel. other than that a pump is pretty fun at steel challenge
