  1. I second this, for me polymer gun = 147 grain and steel framed stock 2 = 124. Ultimately one or the other is not going to give you any advantage and comes down to personal preference. Load up both to 130-135 pf try them out and decide for yourself. Sent from my Nexus 5X using Tapatalk
  2. SGC PCC muzzle

    Thanks, from reading the rules I figured option one was the appropriate one. I've seen a lot of option 2 at local matches and wanted to double check that I hadn't missed something that explicitly allowed it. I don't want to get complacent with "get away with it at locals" habits that will get me in trouble at a larger match.
  3. SGC PCC muzzle

    This may be a naive question and hopefully not too far off topic but for those with carts when do you load the pcc on the cart upon arrival to the range? Do you take it bagged to a safe table like you would to holster a pistol or load the flagged rifle directly from the car? Thinking of making a cart to not have to carry multiple bags all day and don't want to break any rules. Sent from my Nexus 5X using Tapatalk

    While I can't comment on the experience of others, the mbx lightweight barrel has been working great in my build. 1 inch group at 20 yards (without putting a scope on probably the best I can do as a shooter) and a great feel and balance when coupled with a lightweight handguard. Only have about 600 rounds through it so far, but have had 0 malfunctions. Only time will tell it's long term performance but I've been very pleased so far. Sent from my Nexus 5X using Tapatalk
  5. Was doing a little reloading last night and I did a quick check of my powder stock and realized i'm down to my last 3lbs of Prima V. PrimaV and PrimaSV seem to be out of stock everywhere from what I can tell. Does anyone have any information on if or when more will be coming into the country? I'll be reaching out to some of the usual suspect suppliers as well to see what they say but figured someone here may have looked into this already.

  7. I purchased the MBX lightweight barrel on Black Friday for my PCC build. After seeing the previous thread about people having poor accuracy with these barrels I was very concerned that I had purchased a lemon. I was finally able to get my new build out to the range today to sight in and test and am pleased to report that I had nothing but good results. I went to an indoor range and took my standard 9mm minor ammo (125gr BBI TC, 3.5gr PrimaV) and shot 250 rounds with zero malfunctions. I shot a group for accuracy at 20 yards (longest they had) sitting on a stool with the front supported on my range bag and no rear support. Using a Holosun 510C with the brightness turned down to get a more accurate aiming point I was able to shoot a 1 inch 5 shot group which considering the imperfect shooting position and my group shooting skills I thought was very good. The only negative I can speak to after my short experience is that coated bullets are going to be a serious no go with this comp. After only 250 rounds I picked over 70 grains of lead out of the comp and it was smoking like crazy compared to how the exact same load performs in my pistol. Guess I'll have to move to plated or jhp because I definitely don't want to have to dig lead out of the comp after every range trip.

    Mbx lightweight barrel

    To follow on with this any tips on loads that you guys have seen work well in these barrels? Bullet weight, jacketed vs coated, power factor, ect Sent from my Nexus 5X using Tapatalk

    Well crap, I just bought one of these for a new build. Hopefully it was just a bad batch. Sent from my Nexus 5X using Tapatalk

    Prima V metering terribly

    I also get very good consistency with prima v in a dillon powder measure. Never had higher than single digit sd on any load that I've chronoed. It did take a little while to settle when I first set up, but like others have said keep the powder hopper full and you won't have any issues. Sent from my Nexus 5X using Tapatalk

    Keeping Powder in the Press

    My 650 has been full of powder since I bought it a year and a half ago. Tube gets topped off after every loading session so it's full and ready to go when I come back for the next one. Press is located in a spare bedroom so always climate controlled. Might change my habits if stored in a garage. Sent from my Nexus 5X using Tapatalk

    124s or 147s in STOCK 2

    I really liked 147's in a plastic gun but when I moved to a stock 2 they felt too sluggish. Moved to 125's and I like how the sights track better. Recoil is slightly more snappy but on the timer I can't tell the difference. At the end of the day it's going to be personal preference, grab a couple sample packs and try them both.

  15. I've seen this mentioned a lot but with no real context. I see QC10 touted as having the correct angle but don't see anyone mentioning which lowers have the incorrect angle. Do the PSA lowers have a different angle compared to QC10 and as anyone actually measured them to quantify how they're different? This is one of my reasons for asking the question, I have a 5.56 AR built with mostly PSA parts and while they don't have all the bells and whistles they just plain work and were a great value for the money. Like I mentioned before I don't mind paying more to get something that is demonstrably better but I hate paying extra just to have a certain brand's roll mark on the side.
