    Preferred 9mm plated bullet?

    Running the numbers the PD seems to be the smart decision.

    Preferred 9mm plated bullet?

    Hey guys to clarify I am using 125 SNS coated and i am gritting some leading in my barrel and comp. Load functions great and is accurate enough for what I'm doing but I want to eliminate the leading.
  4. I am switching my PCC loads over to a plated bullet and was curious to what everyone's preferred plated bullet is. I prefer a 124/5 grain round nose and I am using tightgroup for my powder.
  5. How does it work on rocks? The range I shoot at has gravel/ground asphalt in the pistol bays.
  6. Corncob media and cheap turtle wax gets my brass pretty clean. Turtle wax is cheap and a bottle lasts forever.

    PCC red dot. Which one?

    I went with a Trijicon MRO and have been very happy with it.
  8. Just watched the video, thanks for posting that. I'm looking into a CH 4d now.
  9. Has anyone used this RCBS die before? It seems like a good option to swage on my single stage since the 650 is out of the question. https://www.midwayusa.com/product/235832/rcbs-primer-pocket-swager-combo-2

    How To Improve Movement Speed? Drills?

    I used two drums to set up a drill where I walked a figure 8 and had a full size silhouette target. At the front of the 8 was about 10 yards at the back was about 15. This drill really helped me learn to shoot on the move. Another Good drill is Steve Anderson's call it and leave it drill, it helped learn to shoot sooner coming into a position and leave sooner when I'm done shooting in that position.

    9mm only reloading

    Go with the 650 and Case feeder, you won't regret it. I am pretty busy with family and work and can crank out 800-1k in 1-2 hours including loading primer tubes. That's something I couldn't too with my old LNL or my friends 550.

    Keeping Powder in the Press

    I empty the hopper on my 650 after every loading session. I keep my press in my garage and load at least once a month sometimes 3-4 times when I'm shooting a lot. I don't know if the temp or humidity would effect the powder but I'm not willing to take a chance.

    Clean powder at low velocity?

    I have used clays before but I recently switched to 231. Clays was very dirty. I don't remember my charge weight, I will look it up. Case was speer SP and a 230gr SNS RN.

    Action Question

    I have owned two savages a 12fv in 223 and a model 12 F-class in 6.5×284 both rifles were very accurate. I sold the 223 because it was too heavy for a 223 17lbs with B&C stock and scope. I burned the barrel out on the 6.5x284 and had plans to rebarrel to 6br but never did, sold the rifle to help fund 3gun. I would not hesitate to buy another savage. I never had reliability issues from mine. The only knock I have against them is that their aftermarket stock selection is pretty low compared to other companies like Remington and Tikka.

    Recommendations for first chassis rifle?

    You should consider the Ruger Precision Rifle in 6/6.5cm. Hornady ammo is available everywhere and the 6cm has excellent ballistics. If your going to start PRS I would do it with a 6/6.5cm and skip the 308.
