    KKM says their standard twist is 1:18.  If you want to shoot 115gr bullets accurately, you do not want a 1:10 twist.  That will over-stabilize the bullet and cause problems unless the bullet is perfectly shaped.

     

    In rifles, there really is no such thing as over stabilized. I can shoot  50gr to 52gr match bullets just as accurately as a 77gr in a 1-7 twist 22 cal barrel.


  2. Had a Deltapoint Pro installed on G34, I have no iron sites on this gun. I spend about 45 minutes Saturday dry firing to be able to index with the dot. While dry firing I found I could shoot with both eyes open, very easily. This morning was my first time live firing with a red dot on a pistol. The hardest thing for me, remembering to keep both eyes open, it's so in grained in me to close my nondominate eye. I sited the DP in at 15 yards, from 3 yards out 25 yards, all the round fall into a 3" circle. Finding the dot under the pressure of a timer is what I need to work on. After siting in and confirming my POI at 3,5,10,15 and 25 yards. I did a bunch of 5x5 drills, a lot of draw and fire one. Final drill, I did a Dot Torture test at 5 yards. I cleared it, next live fire test I will have move it back to 7 yards.

  3. I have been shooting iron sited pistols from the 80’s, shot IDPA, and USPSA in production class. I’m in my late 40’s, I have needed glasses in my mid 20’s for an astigmatism, then last year the eye doc said I needed bifocals. I have a set of glasses with line and the reading Rx on the bottom, and a set with no reading Rx. I tried the no line bifocals and could not stand it. Now I have to decided if I want the front site or target in focus. I have been picking the front site.

     

    After reading about red dots on pistols, that the dot and target can be in the same focal plane. I’m thinking of giving Carry Optics a try. After doing some research it seem that most people are using RMR’s in competitions. But, I have also read that the Delta Points have a larger window which makes the dot easier to pick up, and that the window is not tinted as the RMR. I'm not planning to add back up iron sites, this is going to be a game gun. With the Delta Point having the ability to add the rear site to scope is nice, no need for a rear site milling, just need to add a tall front site. I’m getting really close to pulling the trigger on the Delta Point, and having my G34 Gen 3 milled for it. I have a couple questions. Is anybody on here using a Delta Point? How are they holding up in competition? If I want, after the slide is milled, can I take the optic off and shoot production?

    I've read Stoeger's fundamentals book, and I'm working my way through his dryfire manual.  As far as podcasts, I've become a loyal fan of the Triangle Tactical podcast.  The host is an A-class production shooter from North Carolina who is a fantastic ambassador to the sport.  In my opinion, his show is a must-listen for new shooters.

     

    I can second this podcast, very good show. I also listen to Steven Anderson's, Ben Stoger's, and Shannon Smith's shows.

     


  5. Another reason to deprime first before SS pinning !

    I do not wet tumble.....still like the old fashion corn cob media in a vibrating bowl.

    I went to the progressive press to pull the handle less...now I am stuck with 1/2 of a 5 gallon bucket of 9mm that I have run through the 550B to just deprime. I am to cheap to toss the brass.


  6. It is what most call a "ringer" There are a few threads talking about it. Usually it results from brass that was wet/out in elements for some time.

    Of course, do us all a favor and let us know if you bought it on these forums

    I did not purchase them for anybody on this forum, it's from a seller on facebook.


  7. The once fired 9mm brass I have is killing me, was having lots of hang up while trying to loaded some 9mm on my 550B this weekend. I found that the spent primers are not decapping very well. On about 1 in 10, only the back of the spent primer cup is coming out, leaving the sides of the spent primer still in the pocket. At first I thought is was a primer crimp, but after closer examination it's sides of the spent primer. So now, with this batch of 9mm cases, I am running them through the 550B just to decap them and inspect each one.
