  1. The 507 does not weight the same. It’s 1.5 ounces. You came here for advice from “this great group of experts” so you can get your rifle setup right but seem more intent on just telling us what you had already decided on. In my opinion, the setup you have with your intended use case is wrong. Good luck though. Hopefully it works out for you. Also...this forum is very much geared toward competitive shooting. You may find different opinions elsewhere. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. That sounds HEAVY! You seem to be set on the offset red dot....if you’re really set on sticking with one, you should look for options that aren’t 1/2 lb hanging off the side of your rifle. Maybe check out the holosun 507c https://www.amazon.com/Holosun-HS507C-V2-Multi-Reticle-Parallax-Failsafe/dp/B084VGDK6K Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. The Vortex pst gen2 1-6 is the best of both worlds. Daylight bright red dot on 1x. They retail for about $600 leaving money in your budget for ammo. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. With ammo that is not damaged I think it’s a non-issue. The one I had blow up was in the pull pile bc the primer was smashed from off center insertion. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Es/sd

    For rifle I’m normally 10-15 sd for stuff I put extra work into and 20-30 for the stuff I load in bulk. Typically 223 plinking ammo. For pistol I’m typically around 15 for sd. Single digits is pretty rare for me. Most of what I load is pistol ammo for uspsa and it’s plenty accurate for that. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Es/sd

    10 good. 100 bad. Since I’m not sure what problem you’re trying to solve or what es/sd you’re starting with I’m not sure what other advice to give. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. I use the same as workingmanjeff (180 gr PC Bullets) and can consistently shoot a 2” group supported and 4” unsupported at 25 yards out of a 2011. Last week we ended our practice with 50 yard slow fire group shooting and my daughter put 8 in the A zone and the other 2 were Charlie’s! Only 3 Alphas for me but the bullets were not to blame You’ll find coated bullets from any experienced manufacturer to be plenty accurate. They are also cheaper and more available than FMJ since manufacturing process is simpler. I think this is why they are also easier to get right now. The backlog at King Shoo
  8. I fondled many before choosing the LSI outlaw. I liked how high it’s cut under the trigger guard. To me it just felt better than the others. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Thanks everyone for the feedback. Sounds to me like they’re worth it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Thinking about getting some and looking for feedback. Any issues locking in place? Do they have a real mag feel? Aside from being polymer I’m wondering how they feel when seating, ejecting etc. Did you have to dremel them basepad to fit your magwell? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. No. Went over to my buddy’s house that fit my top end. Confirmed the problem. Reamed it and is now good to go. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. I’m not sure. Never pulled the bullets to get an accurate measurement. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. It’s fixed! Thanks all for your help. Powder Finger helped me walk through to narrow it down. Had a slightly short chamber that only showed up with a few rounds that had longer brass. Just got back from my buddy’s house and after 6 turns from reamer all the “bad” rounds feed fine. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Yes. Reamed to accept up to 1.20. Ammo is 1.181-1.188 Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. I have not. The issue has something to do with the ammo as it only happens 1-2/100 rounds with ammo that is in spec for a hundo case gauge and barrel plunk test. The barrel from my old slide fits the new slide and feeds all the problem ammo without issue. The problem barrel is just failing to close the final 1/8” on these rounds and it’s a hard stop.
