  1. I am really thinking of picking up a pair of the gauges, everyone who’ve I’ve spoken with regarding the hd golds really likes them. I just need to get over the $300 price tag.
  2. I’m sure the pull weight will be inline with the TS/TSO, just a different style
  3. That is one sweet looking pistol, ergos of a cz with a 1911 style trigger.
  4. If I use a kinetic puller (hammer) I can usually reuse the bullet as long as it doesn’t bounce back and hit the case and damage the coating. I’ve never been able to use a bullet that I’ve pulled by using collet puller such as the RCBS puller, it always damages the coating, or deforms the bullet. I’ve had better luck with jacketed bullets but it still left marks on the bullet.

    Shadow 2 + optics longevity

    I had two Vortex Venoms that both went down the same day during a match, both had maybe 1.5k rounds on them, switched to an SRO and have 1k on them now and they have been great. Have the mounted on the CZC RDS plate system.
  6. All the local level 1 matches I shoot we are required to pick up brass, there are usually 1-2 shooters who will always pick up brass between shooters and either give it back to the previous shooter or put it on a barrel which is up for grabs. All the level 2 matches I shoot are lost brass matches, it makes for quicker stages and the RO’s who are working those stages gets to keep all the brass they pick up.
  7. That sucks you’re having so many issues with your SRO, hopefully it was only a small batch of optics that are having issues. I had a similar issue with another brand of optic and the manufacture admitted that a batch had been improperly assembled and they had been fixing the issues when they were being returned for warranty work. Hopefully you’ll get a resolution soon and an optic that is reliable. However my two SRO’s have been great so far, no issues with zeros moving or anything else. Very happy I switched from a Vortex Venom.
  8. I didn’t have to tweak anything to get 23, just used the mecgar 17 round mags and TTI pads and grams guts should get you 23 without any tweaking needed.
  9. I run mecgar mags with TTI base pads and grams springs and followers and can get 23 rounds in my tube. I would say either TTI or Henning base pads are the way to go, they are easy to remove with no tools to clean the mags if needed.
  10. That’s a much better looking rifle now.
  11. I really like the Vortex Venom 6moa, I tried a 510c and the reticle was just to busy for me. I like a simple dot and the 6moa is quick and easy to pick up. I have it mounted on a Vortex qd riser.
  12. I prefer to use sun sleeves instead of a long sleeve shirt, baggy shirt sleeves drive me crazy and make me uncomfortable.
  13. When I switched to an extended firing pin and a 13lb main spring in my TS my pull weight dropped to under 1.5lbs from 2lbs stock, I had a few AD’s and felt that the pull was too light. I switched back to the factory firing pin and main spring as well as a Tanfoglio sear spring and now my pull weight is back to just over 2lbs, the heavier sear spring also helped create a more defined wall in the trigger pull.
  14. I like the Springer pads, they are simple and being able to get them laser engraved with #’s and names is a plus as well.
  15. The only part I’ve had to replace is my firing pin, it was piercing primers after only about 500 rounds. Switched to a Wilson and never had any more issues. I also run a JPSCS so I keep extra o-rings just in case.
  16. When I was using 124gr RMR’s the load you are using is exactly what I used in my SP01 and TS. 1.130 length 4.0gr tightgroup 129-130 pf in my SP01 133-134 of in my TS
  17. You won’t be able to shoot a single action CZ in carry optics, as eerw stated guns with hammers must be decocked at the start of the stage.
  18. I tried blues in .355 in both the 135tc and 147rd and none of the 4 guns I was using liked them. The accuracy was not very good, I should try them in .356 and see how they work out but for now I’ve been using Acme’s and they are working very well. When it’s time to get more billets I might give them a try again.
  19. Short answer is yes, it’s not illegal to own or use “standard cap” mags, you just can’t import/buy/make/sell them in the state.
  20. I’ve reloaded CBC brass with 124 gr bullets and they always pass the gauge, the issue I ran into was with Winchester primers, it seemed that I needed a little more force to get them seated and sometimes they would not seat fully. I recently switched back to federal primers and they seat fine in CBC brass no more high primers.
  21. I used them for a while and the jacket did not seem soft at all. The never deformed while seating, they were very consistent in weight and were very accurate in my guns. Only reason I switched was to go to a coated bullet to save a few bucks since I’ve been shooting way more. They are also made in house so they pretty much always have them in stock and they ship quick.
  22. Same for me, got about 1500 rounds ea on two Venoms before they went out and ended up buying the SRO hope that it will last longer. Haven’t had a chance to use it yet however, still waiting for the RMR plate to come back in stock at CZC.
  23. Shooting a PCC really does feel like cheating at times, I’ve noticed that as long as the stages are set up to not screw with a PCC shooter you really only need to focus on the positions you plan on shooting from and how to get to those positions as quick as possible. Then just pull the trigger as fast as possible once that dot is on the target.

    SP-01 Carry Optics

    They quoted me 8 weeks and I had it back in 4, I think it all depends on their work load and how quick you’ll get it back.
  25. I first started off with a jogging stroller and soon switched over to a cart like the one posted above. The reason, the cart takes up way less room in the car. My brother and I attend matched together and we quickly ran out of room while trying to pack up the car, with the carts it all fits into the trunk of my car. Thats 2 carts, 2 rifle/shotgun cases, 2 range bags, 2 ammo cans. While pushing a stroller is easier over the varied terrain at most ranges, pulling a cart between bays is not a big deal to me.
