  1. I load/shoot about 30k PC bullets/year. The 9s are sized at .356. Zero issues with leading and they are very consistent. Not sure if this is the norm or not but they size them again after coating. https://www.kingshooters.com/bulk-pc-bullets/bulk-pc-bullets-3014 Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. 25.3 of varget is my go to with a 69gr smk. It’s consistently 1/2 moa for me. Did you go up that far in your ladder test? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. That’s what I’m thinking now that I’ve researched more. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Also...it’s sounding like this is more complicated than tossing a 40 upper on it and getting 40 mags, base pads and magwell. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Any idea what the max capacity is in 40 with extended base pads? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Is it possible? My daughter just finished her first year in uspsa as a junior shooting a shadow 2 in production. She’s thinking she’d like to shoot limited next year and possibly shoot nationals. Limited minor is an easy solution but wondering if it’s possible to get a .40 top end for her shadow 2? Googling has not turned anything up and getting her a matching set of TSOs for Christmas isn’t in the cards right now. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Can’t remember if it was free or not. You need to mark a 1” reference point. Select distance, caliber the add the impacts. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. The smaller group is a 52 gr smk with 25.5 of h335. The other is a 69 gr smk with 23.5 of Varget. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. I do it regularly with all good hand loads I’ve put through a 20” white oak barrel. But, I also did not put the upper together. Bought a complete 20” white oak varmint upper with matching bolt. I know the barrel plays a big part. Not sure how much assembly and matching bolt contributes. Also using a geissele national match trigger and Sig 6-24 scope. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. I shoot about 2-3k of short range “blasting” ammo/year. For the past 2 years I have been keeping my eyes peeled for bargains and have been loading for 13 cents/round (.023 primer, .055 bullet, and .052 powder. I do the same for match ammo and will be loading my next 500 75gr precision loads for about 25cents a piece. The case prep for bulk loading is a pain but the savings can be significant.

  11. I have a brass magwell on my gun and I think it helps to balance it out. I saw that akai deal and almost jumped on it. Let us know what you think. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. I always worked under the assumption that you needed a direct impact on the primer and never considered that they can be unstable once damaged. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Nope! Was extremely lucky. This could have been really bad. Many lessons learned. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Surprisingly the drawers are fine. 99% of the ones I need to pull have inverted primers which I think there’s a 0% chance of it happening with them. But since I need to buy a new puller it will be a collet. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. Agreed. I’ve never heard of it happening and never even considered the possibility. But it did so I won’t. I typically only pull bad bullets once a year and it’s normally less than 50 or so. If a collet puller doesn’t work well I won’t lose sleep over trashing them. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
