    Barrel keyholing after rapid fire

    I'm shooting a 38 super comp; great gun maker and I have 55,000 rounds through the gun. When it gets hot from rapid fire, it is key holing. Do you guys think my barrel is shot?? I'm shooting Hornady HAPs .... Good bullet; straight wall case so crimp isn't an issue. My load has been the same for all 55,000 rounds.

    Reducing Open Gun Split Times

    Thanks, Guys! I am going to try those double taps taking my finger completely off the trigger between and I will try turning the dot off and shooting into the barm. I have done the shooting into the berm before and it did seem fast as ***! I am going to go back to that and the Ben Stoeger drill at 7, 12 and 15 feet. Let me know if anyone has any other suggestions. The gun will do it. It's definitely me. It's not the ammo and not the gun; 170 PF 38 super comp.

    Reducing Open Gun Split Times

    Rnlinebacker, Yes, the dot does leave the glass. Tighter grip??? And I like the idea of "not how fast you pull the trigger, but how quickly you release it." I'm going to the range today and I am going to concentrate on that a little more than the actual trigger pull. I find I am faster if I have just the very tip of my finger on the trigger.

    Reducing Open Gun Split Times

    Bill Drills.......... Today: 1.12 draw, .22,.25, .23, .24, 22 1.39 reload .22, .19, .22, .23, .23, .24. That's pretty average; sometimes I get the draw down to 1. or even less. Sometimes I get splits around .25, but never over that and usually around .23, .22. I CANNOT seem to get those lightening splits you guys get no matter how hard I try. I am not sure what else I can do. Do you have any suggestions?

    Reducing Open Gun Split Times

    Does anyone have any practice drills other than Bill Drills to decrease split times or any tips in that regard??
  7. Has anyone ever experienced misfeeds with perfect ammo on only the last two to four rounds left in the bottom of an Infinity mag with an Infinity gun?? Brand-new mags and springs and followers...... about 1,000 rounds through each at the most. There are 12 mags all together. Please do not respond that it has anything to do with the ammo.......... Just had the extractor tuned and it appears to be working properly. I think it's the mags. It does it with both Gram followers and springs and Infinity followers and springs and it is very hit and miss. The only constant is that it is always at the bottom of the mag. I have shot two large matches recently and I feel like I'm shooting carry optics and having to count and use only 21 or 23....24 of the bullets in the mag for it to function reliably.

    MBX Extreme 155 mm 9mm/38 magazines

    I'm not sure if it's a PT grip or not. It's in Infinity Firearm. That is very interesting, though, that you had the least engagement with the 155 mm. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Has anyone had problems with these 155 mm MBX mags flying out of the magwell during firing of the gun? AND NO, I am not pushing the mag release! We have had three different people try it and have it on video. Even shooting strong hand only where you are no where near the mag release, the mag drops out of the magwell about three rounds into the course of fire. I have other 170 mm MBX mags and 140 mm MBX mags and there is absolutely no problem; flawless performance. The mags snap into place and you CANNOT pull them out with force once in place, yet when you shoot the gun they come flying out of the maxwell. Any ideas??? I didn't want to mess with them too much in case they need to be returned to MBX.

    For 9mm MAJOR Topics

    I have used Silhoutte powder for nine major, and it works fine. In fact, it was one of my favorite powders until I started using VV3n37.
  12. I just purchased a Sentinel Plate and magazine post from Present Arms, Inc. Great product, affordably priced. I was in a friend of mine's loading room and saw his gun propped up on this stand with a base. It holds the gun perfectly still and in place for you to clean, make repairs, oil it. Best part is the company is awesome to deal with and the owner is a vet. Gotta check them out. They have a version for ARs and rifles too. The owner said he would give all USPSA members a 10% discount. All you have to do is type in the code USPSA10. CHECK THEM OUT.......BTW they are not friends of mine, nor have I ever met the owner, just a good experience and product I thought I should share. They are at presentarmsinc.com.

    CK Arms & MBX Magazine Issues

    I have a CK Arms Blackout 2011 and own MBX mags and have never had an issue with them. Reach out to Bobby at CK Arms and he will make things right, I guarantee it! Great company to deal with in my experience.
  14. Has anyone had any experience with cleaning nickel-plated brass with stainless steel media?? Will the media remove the nickel plating quicker than the dry media??
