  1. I used blue magic and did the slide racking. I don't think I pushed each direction hard though while doing it. Definitely smoothed up when I did it though. I didn't get chamber reamed, my ammo is shorter than that. I cannot recall oal off the top of my head though
  2. Interesting, I polished up parts in lower, and a bit on the upper. Maybe I need to go more on the upper than
  3. According to your profile picture, looks like production guns (stock 2's?). I had 8# recoil springs in both my stock 2's and was getting failure to feeds. With 10# springs still get some ftf's but not near as bad as with 8#. 6# sounds too light

    Grip for Sweaty Hands

    Progrip is necessary. I prefer a grip with some checkering or grit to it as well. Also keep a towel in the range bag to wipe hands if they get sweaty
  5. I was looking forward to seeing that. Can you repost video please?

    Best drill for a newbie

    Blake drill is more better. Train them transitions > split them triggers

    Stock 2 trigger sticking

    Great info as always, thanks John. I suspect over inserted mags, as I have never experienced this before and it hasn't happened yet with my previous mags in my new (to me) Tanfo. I'll check out those spots and see if I can pinpoint the area
  8. Just traded a gun for a well used stock 2. Gun is great, but the mags have Springer basepads and sometimes when dryfiring the trigger gets stuck back. When I use my mags which are newer and have PD basepads, this has not yet happened. Is this the phenomenon of magazines being over inserted? I have not live fired the gun yet, but this issue has only happened sporadically and only with the mags with Springer basepads. Im probably just going to get more PD basepads, so everything I have is consistent anyway. Or is it maybe a warn trigger return spring? I'll probably go through and swap out springs on both anyway since the year is about over

    650 difficulty with sizing die

    I agree this is a die issue not one with my 650. I doubt it's an alignment issue as suggested because I'm not crushing primers and it's going in all other dies fine. I did actually have that issue a few months ago. I called Dillon to get the alignment tool and instead he helped me fix the problem and the alignment tool was not needed in my case. I probably will get another sizing die, and may just get another Lee die and make sure it's a carbide one. I use Dillon lube currently. Everyone raves about brass juice, I guess I can try a little bit of that to see if it's better or just snake oil

    650 difficulty with sizing die

    So I removed the decapping pin and it was still tough. I put a bit of blue magic and very fine grit sandpaper to the inside of it. Seemed to help some, still not as smooth as I was hoping for

    650 difficulty with sizing die

    Eddie thanks for offer, I'm not going this year though. I may take you up on it if you'll be at Low Country this month? Sorry I haven't been on past few days

    650 difficulty with sizing die

    Interesting, thanks for the info. I'll pull the rod and see if it's better. I'll save the call to Dillon it this doesn't fix it. Of course I don't have an extra rod because im not smart
  13. I have to use excessive pressure pulling the handle on my 650. It all comes from the sizing die..I'm using Lee dies, I'm thinking may not be carbide (I've had them for a while and can't remember). Yes I use case lube (Dillon). I've stripped the die apart and cleaned it before and it was a bit better for a short period of time, but still not as easy as it should be. And breaking the die apart to clean it every 100-200 rounds is a pain. And yes I tumble my brass so it's not exceptionally dirty. I even used to wet tumble, but went back to dry. I know it's the sizing die because if there's not a case in station 1 it's very easy to operate. Do I need to just buy Dillon carbide dies or is there another possible issue at work?

    P226 Cycle Speed

    That's a grip or shot calling issue sounds like, as opposed to a mechanical issue with the gun. I personally can shoot .14 splits with my Stock 2. I'd imagine that's possible and better with a 226 or stock 2 in capable hands

    P226 Cycle Speed

    I used to shoot a 226 enhanced elite in production and I don't see any reason the gun would be slowing you down. What kind of splits are you shooting vs what do you expect?
