  4. A friend of mine had a knee replacement when he was 70. He has no issues with the replaced knee and can do more now then before the knee replacement. He told me the key to full recovery was in the physical therapy. Do the exercises the therapist tell you to do and how often and you’ll be running around before you know it.

  5. I have this seating die for my 9 and 40 and use it with great success. However these dies are seating dies only and does not fully remove the bell on the cartridge case. I crimp separate and don’t have any issues related to seating the bullet. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. I have the racer in both of my SFX. I like really like them. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  7. I did the same upgrades to my Canik TP9SFx. I settled on the 14 pound recoil spring. It was really just personal preference. The brass base pads and back strap seemed to balance the gun. It is really easy to shoot. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  8. I tried a 15 pound recoil recoil spring with a 6.5 pound striker spring. Worked just fine. I see no reason using a 6 pound striker spring wouldn’t work. I settled on 14 pound recoil springs. BTW I put this guide rod in both my Canik TP9SFx. https://www.w74guiderods.com/
  9. I switched back to shooting Limited this year after shooting CO for 2 1/2 years. (Going to shoot Nationals). I am now learning to shoot a completely different platform. A 2011 compared to a striker fired gun for CO. Haven’t shot my Limited gun since I started shooting CO. Plus, I have to wear glasses to see my sights now. At times I find myself questioning the sanity of my decision. But, I’m bound and determined to be the terror of B class at Limited Nationals. I am A class in CO and B in Limited. I shoot CO much better. At least for now. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Like what others have said. Canik’s are over sprung. I put a tungsten guide rod from W74 and a 14 pound commander recoil spring in mine. It cycles everything. I shoot a 147 Blue Bullet at a 135 PF. Been ultra reliable and accurate. I put the Freedom Smith trigger in and it’s very sweet trigger. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. The blue is definitely higher weight. Not sure what it is, but it’s higher poundage. My loads have average 136 PF. With a 14 pound recoil spring the brass ejects about 5-6 feet. I tried a 13 pound recoil spring, it felt too light. Sluggish would be an appropriate description for how the slide felt when it went into battery. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  12. I have an after market tungsten guide rod with a 14 pound recoil spring. I can tell the difference between the factory reduced recoil spring and the 14 pound after market spring. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. I use tungsten guide rod from W74. They are made for the Canik TP9SFx. I have 2 of them. 1 in my practice gun and 1 in my match gun. You use commander 1911 springs. I have about 5,000 rounds on my practice gun since installed with no problems. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. In my previous life when I used to shoot longe range. I would weigh each individual charge. I would use a powder trickle to get each charge as close as possible. Use a very good scale and scale weights to verify scale accuracy. Since your friend is using a 308. Bullet selection is going to be critical. A 1000 meters is pushing the limits of a 308.

  15. I have done OAL for my 40 S&W and 9 mm. This was done out of curiosity. If I remember correctly I had a variation somewhere in the neighborhood of +/- .007” for my own cast bullets. I also separated into a couple groups, shortest OAL and longest OAL to see if there was an effect on accuracy. I saw no discernible difference in accuracy. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
