  1. Any updates on release date? Would love to see one in the wild and hear initial impressions Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. No. Not sure what it weighs but seems about perfect to me. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Same one (brass limcat) I just removed the chipped cerakote and polished it Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. She has her heart set on one! Loves the trigger on my 2011 and the grip on her shadow 2. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. I don’t get it. Do you have details of how it works? Is this just playing with buffer weights? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Could have saved everyone a lot of time if you mentioned this earlier. Reading your original post makes it sound like you were shooting a brand new factory configuration rifle that didn’t work when, in reality, you tried to play gunsmith and had no idea what you were doing. This forum has a wealth of information but you have to give to get. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. 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
  8. 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
  9. That’s what I’m thinking now that I’ve researched more. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. 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
  11. Any idea what the max capacity is in 40 with extended base pads? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. 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
  13. 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
  14. 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
  15. 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
  16. 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.

  17. 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
  18. 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
  19. Nope! Was extremely lucky. This could have been really bad. Many lessons learned. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  20. 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
  21. 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
  22. Won’t pull again without one. Only some minor facial burns from powder and ringing ears. Based on the hole in my ceiling, it could have been a lot worse. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  23. I never thought of this as a possibility and chalking it up to a freak accident but had a .40 explode while pulling some bullets today. This was in the pull pile because the primer went in off center and was smashed. After the 3rd impact the explosion happened. The puller blew apart. The brass went through the drywall part of the ceiling. The collet made the marks in the drop ceiling. The bullet and primer were on the carpet area of my basement (about 3 feet from the concrete used for puller impact). Still trying to make sense of it and posting this mostly as a PSA. I’m convinced that it had to do with the damaged primer but also certain that nothing could have impacted the primer while pulling. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  24. I found that pull ups work great for me. I tend to hang at full extension for a second or two and pause again at the top. When I feel my grip getting weak I add some coconut oil to the bar. It makes my hands want to slip but resisting strengthens my grip. I also use “liquid grip” when shooting because I’m not opposed to a chemically enhanced grip. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  25. I didn’t know he ever stopped. Got mine a couple weeks ago. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
