  1. Definitely good enough for 3 gun for the time being! Red flames are the fastest
  2. Hi all - Following up on this as I think I've got it sorted out. The half moon primer sled stop had a bit of slop in the tightness of the screw as I've been messing with the press so much. As soon as I tightened it down all the way, the priming issues have disappeared completely. It seems like even having the screw backed out just a tad bit, it causes the primer sled to over travel flipping primers as they fall. Hope this helps someone in the future!
  3. Yeah! I've been using the 45ACP case prior, and I've jammed in a 124gr blue bullet into the case before it went back on. It's a little wobbly, but it's adding more weight and the failure rate is going down.
  4. Thanks for all the replies. I checked to make sure everything Dillon recommended. Interestingly enough, the issue goes away with a full primer tube until about 50 rounds. Then, within the last 50 rounds, I'll have about 4-5 failures. I'm wondering if I need to clean the primer tube itself (brand new tip) as it seems the extra weight of the primers helps alleviate the issues.
  5. So interestingly enough, I got a new blue tip put in place and was double checked by a friend, but the primers still fall out of the press. Back to square one!
  6. After pulling it apart again, yeah it's chewed it. It was chewed up near the portion where it hangs onto the primer tube. I've tried trimming out the parts that seem kind of "burred". I'm gonna give it a go for a little bit and if it's marginally any better than it was before, I'll be ordering a truck load of those blue thingamajigs. Edit: After trimming burrs and what not, It's gotten a lot worse. This must be the culprit. Thanks!!
  7. I've been having the dreaded primer issues with the 1050, but I can't seem to find a reason for what is happening. It seems that once out of ever 15 or 20 rounds, the brass will fail to prime and the primer will fall out of the press onto the bench. I'm not having any issues with sideways primers or crushed primers at all. I've reached the end of my Google-fu. Has anyone experienced this before? The press has recently been taken apart and cleaned. Edit: After trouble shooting a bit, the primer doesn't seem to come up with the priming system, and when I push the handle back, the primer pops out of the press. This is seeming to be a primer sled issue / primer tube tip problem?
  8. That definitely might be tough. I didn't realize the 5.25" had a different rear sight mechanism until recently. It would be kinda cool to get an adapter plate for a classic dovetail, but the stock rear sights are definitely better than some other manufacturers to the point that I may only change the front sight in the future if I stop shooting mine in carry optics.
  9. You guys are right, I'm definitely over thinking this. I'll just throw in a slightly heavier recoil spring and a shock buff, and let er rip when shooting the CK. Thanks as always everyone!
  10. I agree that if I'm switching guns, my match would most definitely be over. I guess if my gun hits the dirt half way through, I'll only be putting 200 or so rounds to finish out the day. I'll just throw in a shock buff and call it a day with some higher than normal pf (for me) as it seems like people are running this pf in 9 major on the regular.
  11. So I have yet to chrono the ammo through my CK at the moment, but my main worry is the longevity of the Ck slide as I’m guestimating about 178-180pf. Am I being overly cautious of the wear and tear these open guns go through?
  12. Good afternoon folks, After spending half a year lugging around two different loads of 9mm major for my two open guns, I'm wondering if anyone here has any ideas on reducing velocity output of my backup gun. At the moment, I am shooting an Atlas Open gun and my backup is a CK Arms Hardcore Open. It would be great to be able to carry around one set of ammo to matches, but I'm not sure of any way to do so without shortening the barrel of the CK or adding more popple holes. Would a different compensator possibly bleed off some velocity? My Atlas load: 7.2gr WAC @ 170-172pf My CK load: 6.9gr WAC @ 170-172pf
  13. I've definitely thought about using Lucas. A lot of my shooting friends in the area are using some form of Mobil 1 in their Atlas guns, but maybe I should just keep it simple...
  14. So I've been having some issues with my shok buffs getting eaten up within 300 rounds. Just as a heads up to anyone using Slip2k EWL, this stuff deforms shok buffs. I've left a buff soaking in it for a little bit and it starts to cave into itself which is made worse with continued recoil. I'll be switching to Mobil 1 5w30. My friend suggested I add some auto transmission fluid as a cleaner. Have any of you guys tried this mixture before?
  15. Using JHP 124s (Montana Gold), I’m using 7.2gr and i fluctuate between 170pf and 172pf. I chronod at 170 at one major, 172 at another, and 170 again at the most recent major. Using once fired mixed brass in 9mm major
