  1. I thought it ran smoothly. There were a couple of issues with awards at the Banquet but they fixed them. I like that the Banquet is on Friday night now. Makes travel so much better. Dates for next year will most likely will be May 21-22 but I don't know for sure. It's always the week before Memorial Day.
  2. Yes, you have to sign up on the NRA site to register. Register to register.
  3. For those interested, registration is now open for Bianchi Cup. NRA 2019 Bianchi Registration
  4. Has anyone seen or heard when they will begin registration?
  5. I've shot hundreds of those bullets from Bayou. They can be very accurate at 50 yards with 231. To the best of my recollection, I loaded 4.8 grs. of 231, but like Warren said, you will need to work it up in your gun. I'd start at 4.4 and work up. You only need 870 fps to make PF but that may not be the most accurate load. I wouldn't go any higher than 5.0. That's a pretty hot with 231.
  6. This is absolutely true. A guy that shot on my relay told me he had volunteered to work but was told he could "either shoot or work, not both".
  7. My reloading bench isn't cluttered. I just have a lot of my reloading stuff on display.
  8. I use a Dillon Universal decapping die on toolhead by itself. I have found that a chisel point on the pin works best. As far as drying after wet tumbling, I use a food dehydrator and they are usually good to go in a couple of hours. Is decapping, wet tumbling and drying worth it? It is time consuming but just like women and beer, to each his own. I'm happy with my process and the end result. What else matters?
  9. For anyone considering wet tumbling, Midsouth Shooters Supply has a great deal on the FART right now. https://www.midsouthshooterssupply.com/item/00122909544/frankford-arsenal-platinum-series-rotary-tumbler-(stainless-steel-media-tumbler)
  10. Anyone heard an update on registration?
  11. This seems to be a good buy: https://www.midwayusa.com/product/814722/rcbs-rangemaster-750-electronic-powder-scale-750-grain-capacity-110-volt
  12. Out of stock at Midsouth. Found them here though: https://www.wholesalehunter.com/Product/Details/1015141?fs=1
  13. I used an Aimpoint for a long time, but last year switched to the Ultradot-6 with a single point mount Burris Xtreme Tactical Low mount. The mount fits the scope almost perfectly between the electronics and scope bell. As Jeremy said, the 2 patterned reticles are useless, but I like being able to change my dot size. The elevation turret is a handy option. Midway currently has the Ultradot-6 on clearance for $243 and the Burris mount can be found online for about $35. https://ads.midwayusa.com/product/316314/ultradot-ultradot-6-red-dot-sight-30mm-tube-1x-2-4-6-8-moa-dot-2-pattern-reticle-matte?cm_mmc=pf_ci_google-_-Optics+-+Red+Dot+%26+Holographic+Sights-_-Ultra+Dot-_-316314&gclid=COmaiLLF_9QCFdS3wAodx5AAwg Burris XTR Xtreme Tactical 30mm Low 1/4" Height Matte Black Single Ring 420161
  14. Congrats on your purchase! As far as a work bench goes, I purchased one from Harbor Freight (attached link) a couple of years ago and after securing it to the wall, it has been great! It has plenty of room for my 550B and the drawers and shelf are very handy. Don't pay $159 though. I got mine on sale for $129 and used a 20% off coupon. http://www.harborfreight.com/60-in-4-drawer-hardwood-workbench-69054.html?utm_source=publitas&utm_medium=monthly-ad&utm_campaign=042017 http://www.harborfreight.com/digitalsavings.html
  15. I shoot 115 HAPs in my Action Pistol (Bianchi) gun and they are very accurate out to 50 yards. I've got them pumped up pretty fast at 1250 fps. and they have no trouble at all knocking down plates. If you're interested in trying the HAPs, check the Midsouth Shooters Supply site. They have a 30 round sample pack for $5 all the way up to a 3k box for $279. Right now they have a special $9 flat rate shipping through the end of the month. (I think.)
