    Sanding G10

    I've knocked down the sharp edges on multiple pairs of VZ Recon grips with sandpaper and you'd never be able to tell.

    Test results for S&W40 with Titegroup and VV340

    VV N340 is all I use for 40cal major. I run in with 165gr bullets at 1.185oal and love it. I bought a 35lb commercial size container a few years ago for like $20 a pound. Still got around 16lb left of it.

    16 moa c-more

    Local GM Open shooter who is in his 70's uses a 12 moa c-more. He swears by it. He may be in his 70's but still kicks everyone's butt in all the local matches.

    CM13-04

    Shot this yesterday and it was my first classifier score over 60% which I was happy about. I've been a C Class Single Stack shooter for year's. Never really cared much about practicing or what my scores are. Jusy loved to shoot matches. Been practicing more and calling all my shots. 79 points 11.23 seconds 7.0347 hit factor 60.37% of national average

    New shooter - Should I do a major match?

    Go for it. You'll learn a lot from the more experienced shooters. I went to my first major match after just a few months of shooting local matches. I went and shot Battle In The Bluegrass. I went for the experience and don't regret it at all. I learned a lot from this match. I got their on Friday and watched Alex Gutt shoot and was like I don't stand a chance in this match. I'll be lucky to be at 25% of his score. Then shot on Saturday on a squad with Ben Stoeger. I didn't even know who Alex or Ben was. But after shooting with Ben I realized I really needed to step up my game and practice more and learn all the fundamentals.

    40S&W Major Reloading Cost

    I love the black bullets. Chandler has figured out a way to get the coating to stick to the bullet better then all the other bullet manufacturers that use the hitek coating. No issues with smokiness even with hot fast burning powders like titegroup. They seat easy on my 1050. Never shave any of the coating off while seating.

    Hornady LNL Progressive Issues

    3 shooting friends have LNL presses. All complain about all the fiddling and adjustments it constantly needs. The only thing they like on the LNL press is the micrometer powder measure adjustment. I've been trying to get them to drink the blue koolaid. I started out on the Square Deal B and upgraded 18 months later to a Super 1050. I only reload 40cal for competition so the Super 1050 is a no brainer. Added a Mr Bullet Feeder to speed uo the reloading process even more.

    OAL for xtreme 185 FP in 45 ACP?

    I just looked in my Lyman Reloading Manual 48th edition and it shows 185gr HP starting at 1.175 OAL. Probably start there with some dummy rounds and make sure the gun feeds them properly.

    Shielded Thumb Safety

    The limcat looks nice in the picture's. Look's like it has very wide paddles on both side of the safety allowing you to profile and shape it to your liking. Also the double detent notch for the plunger spring is interesting to me. Wonder what the safety engagement and disengagement feels like.

    Tripp System mags dumping bullets

    Aaron has helped me many times with mag issues. I had all kinds of problems with the 10rd 9mm mags. Aaron was honest and told me they didn't have a fix for my problem and the best thing for me to do is buy Dawson Precision competition ready mags in 9mm. To either send them in the defective mags and get a refund or exchange for mags in another caliber. For him being honest I exchanged them for some more 45acp mags. Betty and Virgil are also really helpful too.

    New to USPSA: Where do I start?

    The rule book is accessible on the USPSA website to see where the holster and mag pouches are allowed to be on the belt for the division you shoot. Also the max distance from the inside of the belt to the gun or mags is 2 inches. https://uspsa.org/rules

    40S&W Major Reloading Cost

    I buy 165gr coated bullets by the case from Black Bullets International. I get a discount on bullets from them through the secondary sponsorship program. I bought a 35lb commercial size container of Vhitavuori N340 at around $21 per pound from my local reloading shop. My boss is a FFL. Last time he bought primers in bulk I went in on the order and with shipping and tax included it cost me $25 per 1k for Winchester SPP. I buy dirty range brass at $20 per 1k.
