  1. This is going to be barrel/gun dependent. I have shot both .400” and .401” diameter bullets through my .40 cal Limited Gun. I could not tell a difference in accuracy between the diameters. These bullets are my own cast bullets so the only difference was diameter after sizing. My barrel slugged .395”. I ended up sizing to .400”. I suggest give them a try.

  2. From the picture it looks like a legitimate call. The area marked in red is what I’m basing this on. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  3. This is my load with Blue Bullets. My goto powder for 9mm and 40 is Alliant Sport Pistol. Meters very well, clean and is plenty accurate. This load will get me a 2” group at 25 yards with a rest.

  4. I would contact Jared at Arsenal Molds. Jared made me 2 custom molds. First was a 180 grain no lube groove 40 cal. Second was a 147 grain no lube groove in 9mm. Both molds are fantastic. If you have a specific bullet design that is not currently made Jared will work with you too make it for you. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. I had a similar issue to the OP when I first started. I was getting very frustrated because of the lack of progress. I broke the entire process into micro drills without a timer. I would work on just grabbing the magazine; with a focus on properly gripping the mag. Once I felt I had the technique of gripping the magazine adequately down I moved to gripping the magazine and moving it to the magwell. Again, I would do this until I felt like I had this adequately accomplished. Next I would grip the mag and insert it into the gun. I did this until I felt I was adequately confident. When I felt like I had these techniques down I would do a complete reload without a timer. I did this until I was confident in my techniques. Speed was not on my radar, however, I was getting faster as I improved without trying too. Once I was confident I started using a timer. It took me about 3 months to get below a 2 second reload consistently. Below 2 seconds was 1.9 - 1.8 seconds. Yes, it took awhile but I also learned to breakdown my reload and help me understand what I was doing right and what I was doing wrong and needed to change.

    If I’m understanding your question. I can answer by saying; I have cast and coated thousands of 9 mm and 40 cal. with HI TEK coating. I always size after the final coating. If the coating is done correctly it will not come off. I do spray a little bit of case lube on the newly coated bullets before I size them just to make it easier. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  7. I have and shoot the CanikTP9SFx in carry optics. It comes with a match grade barrel and a good trigger from the factory. Mine will shoot 2” groups at 25 yards with ammo it likes. I did up grade my trigger with a freedomsmith trigger. I have no regrets with this handgun. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I have the same issue as the OP. I have a lot of C’s and D’s low and slightly to the left. This was very frustrating an cost points during a match. I discovered 2 drills through Ben Stoeger class I am doing. These 2 drills that have helped me make marked improvement. One is Ben Stoeger Double Drill the other is a dry fire drill to develop trigger control at speed. Doubles is a simple live fire drill. Put a target at 5-7 yards and fire pairs of aimed shots as fast as you can. Don’t worry about draw speed, you need to focus on sights and pulling the trigger straight back. Be careful that you don’t turn this drill into a Bill Drill. It should be something like Bang, bang - pause - bang, bang - pause, etc. Trigger control at speed is a great dry fire drill and was a huge eye opener. Set your timer on random point your firearm at a blank wall or target and when the timer beeps pull the trigger before the deep ends and watch your sights. For me, doing this drill I saw my dot going low and slightly left. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  9. My goals are: 1) Makes Master Class. Currently Mid A Class in CO. 2) Improve on shooting sooner going into positions. And exiting quicker. 3) Improve my reloads. 4) Improve my A’s to C’s ratio. Currently I average about 75% A’s at a match. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. I agree, CO should have its own sub forum Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. I shot this at my local match earlier this month. I think this is a fun classifier. Time 16.13 A’s - 12 C’s - 3 D’s - 1 HF 4.3344 78.9796% Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  12. Have you tried these to strengthen your hips/groin? Ball Bridges Hip Hikers Straight Leg Raises Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  13. Cool! I think your gonna really like the Freedom Smith trigger. BTW, I have 8,000 rounds though my Canik TP9Sfx. I have had zero malfunctions from the gun. My 1 and only malfunction was caused from a dirt filled magazine that I knew I should of cleaned before my next stage but I didn’t. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. I am very sorry for the confusion. I measured mine and its diameter measured 4.28 mm. I was told by a guy at Cabela’s it was a #2/0 (2 ought) I looked on Bass Pro’s website and they show this to be a #1. Forgive me for steering you wrong. Go with #1 split ring at Bass Pro.

  15. Sorry, yes 2/0 split ring. The picture shows where the split ring goes. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
