  3. Good to hear! Have you have any issues over the years? I got a great deal on sm rifle but only run them in my glocks. Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
  4. I will chime it to see if anyone adds some load data for other than 9mm. I am not reloading shotgun anymore since lead costs too much and factory ammo can be purchased for less than it costs to reload. I have 4+ pounds of Alliant Promo left over and want to use it something.

  6. You are not missing anything but where are you sourcing your brass that you are getting that many failures? It would have to be Glock brass from what I have heard. I ran all of my .40 through the GRX, its just worth my piece of mind, I also bought the GRX because I reload .357 SIG and that saves me a ton of time doing the GRX die and then running it in my Dillon 550 with just a whiff of lube for the cases. The GRX is worth it if you are running a ton of range .40 cal brass

    Montana Gold 124gr JHP (no idea why but the JHP went faster then the CMJ) 1.165 OAL CCI Sorted headstamp brass to keep things somewhat consistent without trimming. Hodgdon LongShot 7.9 grs for ~1400 fps (I think its softer and I use Longshot for most of my calibers) This data is from Minnesota, I had to change my formula when I moved from Colorado to Minnesota.
  8. Good lesson to go back to basics. Which progressive press are you using? There are a ton of light options now and you can always rig up a mirror. Can't say I have not had a squib before but certainly not many in over 30 years but the progressive press can be the problem, more so with something that is manually indexed versus automatic. I usually end up with rounds that have an upside down primer. Be nervous for awhile and then get back to cranking them out!
  9. Haven't cleaned mine in awhile and just used small brush and picks. How do you like the comp cleaning tool? Mixed reviews on Dawson webpage. Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
  10. Check powder valley and the link below if you live close to them, they use a non standard delivery company that has a good deal on shipping / hazmat. https://recobstargetshop.com/ Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
  11. I stand at both my 550 and 650 but I have used a tall stool at times.
  12. Add Hodgdon Longshot to your list of powders. 9mm Major 124 gr JHP Montana Gold Bullet 7.9 grs Longshot 1380 fps STI DVC GUN Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
  13. I shot major out of mine with heavier spring in it. It was my backup Open gun and it did very well! Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
  14. I have loaded about 1500 rounds and fired 300 of those. I can not tell the difference from my range brass reloads comparing them after being fired. I did a good amount of research before buying this stuff, did not read or hear anything that would discourage me from buying it. I have only shot the .40 cal but have read about others reloading the rifle brass with no problems but I do not have any personal experience with the rifle brass.
  15. I just sold mine for $2400 with one mag. after some hard negotiations since the new DVC is selling for X dollars more. PM me if you want more info. Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
