  1. I can't think of any negative associated with the under cut. Fits my hand like a glove.
  2. I think all of the springs actually say that. But, a 13 pound spring is in fact just a 13 pound spring
  3. Not a stupid question at all. As long as it's for the right length slide, it won't be a problem.
  4. Extractor issues can certainly crop up from time to time and looking at the extractor tension is probably a good idea. If you are looking for a low cost and awesome replacement, take a look at the EGW practical extractor.
  5. Found this on the hodgdon site. http://www.hodgdonreloading.com/data/rifle
  6. Wilson is having a sale. https://shopwilsoncombat.com/Match-Grade-Barrel-223-Wylde-Urban-Super-Sniper-18-1-8-Twist-Stainless-Threaded-Muzzle/productinfo/TR-223USSRG18RT8/
  7. I run my .40 ammo at 1500 because it seems fast enough for me and only load 300-1000 at a time.
  8. I just adjust the depth when I am running rounds through the press and seat then just below flush. Seems to work for me.
  9. I may be one of those exceptions then. When I tested a Bailey barrel with the same load that I used in an STI barrel, it would not make power factor with xtremes. I tried bumping the load up to 4.7, then 4.8 and still could not make PF. Along the way, I saw massive pressure spikes (really flat primers) and decided to stop for safety reasons. On a whim, I decided to try a bullet in .401 diameter loaded at 4.6 and 4.7 and have been using that since.
  10. That thinking will blow up a gun. Testing 4.6 with plated is a far better start and much safer. I know this from my own testing, .04 is an insane amount of powder to jump into without a very conservative starting point
  11. I recommend starting at 4.6 grains of n320 and working up from there. A load of 5.1 of n320 would have blown up my gun.
  12. Check out the brazos ejector and yes you will have to blend the back of it. The underside of the ejector has been relieved for mag/bullet clearance.
  13. Check out the grip that lonestar innovations is making. The ergonomics are incredible, it has the right type of grip and is designed in Texas and made from 17-4 stainless. I think it is the best grip on the market. Glenn will help make sure that the fitting is as easy as possible.
  14. Great show! watched the entire two seasons in a week. The Manson interview was epic.
