    Quad loading question

    I've noticed that it's technique. It happens more often when the tube starts to get full, and the spring resistance increases. I usually have no problem on the first quad load, the second quadload and specifically the second pair is usually the problem.

    Collapsible wagon - 3 gun rifle and shotgun mount

    I used the ATV clamps and worked great at my match! Gonna love it for USPSA as well, 200-300 rds of 9mm weighs a bit, only feels good at the end of the day when it's all shot!

    Sight Picture/Alignment

    I think I'm gonna switch to Sight Image 2.

    S2 owners, any luck with the 145 grain ACME bullets?

    Really? I’ve had absolutely no problem with my 147gr brass. How low were you seating them? And how significantly of a bulge are we talking here? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    1.1 was okay for me with the 160gr RN. I load 1.12 with my FPs though.

    My problem with the RNs was that I had to seat them much shorter than the FPs which is why I stuck with the 147gr FPs. That said, I don't know what OAL you're at right now.

    Ah gotcha. I have a bullet feeder, but I still straighten all of my bullets by hand since the Hornady bullet feeder die is meh.

    What seater are you using? I've never had any problems with the 147gr FPs and my Hornady die. I have loaded the 160gr RN without problems, but it looks like they don't make those anymore. I imagine if the 160gr work, the 145gr should. The 150gr SWC worked well too.

    Ladder testing

    That's what I was thinking as well. I suspect there might have been improvement in reloading technique as well, but I'm not expecting super great STD since I'm not sorting by stamp and bulk trimming with a Tri Way trimmer.

    Ladder testing

    I've finally got around to chronoing my loads. 24.2gr - Avg 2749 fps - STD 30 - 151.2 PF 24.5gr - Avg 2771 fps - STD 27 - 152.41 PF 24.8gr - Avg 2846 fps - STD 20 - 156.53 PF 25.1gr - Avg 2872 fps - STD 17 - 157.96 PF I'm not sure why there's such a big jump in fps between 24.5 and 24.8gr. COAL was the same for all four loads. Anyways, how should I proceed from here. Just group them all and pick based on best grouping? I didn't notice any real difference in recoil, and none of them had issues cycling. All four are above minimum USPSA 3 gun power factor.

    Awesome thanks! Have you been able to adapt an umbrella stand? I went with the wagon over a stroller because of how compact it gets.

    Thanks! Just ordered a pair of clamps and the cart!

    Got it. So he only uses two clamps? I can always get a piece of plastic to drop on the floor. https://www.amazon.com/Kolpin-Rhino-Grip-XL-Single/dp/B001Q4UBVC/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1530755639&sr=8-4&keywords=atv+rifle&dpID=41oyu8os5qL&preST=_SY300_QL70_&dpSrc=srch Guess those should do fine?
  14. Planning on getting above wagon. How are you guys mounting your rifle and shotguns? Place clamps on both ends?

    New Franchi Affinity + Parts vs Used Benelli

    I definitely feel the same way. After I got the shotgun and shot it, I realized I was awful at it and immediately started questioning my decision to spread my practice even thinner across multiple sports. No sporting clays here unfortunately other than clay/trap shooting, but my cousin told me about sporting clays, and it sounds like a blast. What distances did you pattern at and what shotshell do you think you're gonna use? I ended up going with an LM extended sporting clays choke. Still haven't shot it yet, but I found that the stock chokes had too much or too little constriction. I definitely considered getting the Carlson Super Steel choke tubes since they were developed for steel shot, but I just couldn't find enough reviews on them. I've got some 1oz but mostly 1 1/8oz loads. Haven't shot the 1oz yet.
