  1. I went with the Ghost pouches, but do have one DAA Race Master pouch (the aluminum one) because I wanted to be able to adjust the outward cant of the pouch.
  2. This, except I run all my .40 through the Lee FCD on a separate press before I load them. I also had a "pusher" made out of a bolt and a .40 cartridge (and liberal amounts of JB Weld) that slides into the shell holder on that same separate press.
  3. There's a small lip on the inside of the front side at the base of the XDm mags that needs to be ground down/removed.
  4. Good for you Andy! I'm in a similar position as you, but with no new blaster as the carrot. Good luck!!!
  5. I have a pair of the Boombah Hellcat's and like them. However, they are not waterproof.
  6. For .40 minor, I used to run 180gr or 200 gr at like 3.4-3.6 gr of WST. Since gone to major.
  7. Been seeing this error (and similar) over the last few days.... An error occurred (500 Error) We're sorry, but a temporary technical error has occurred which means we cannot display this site right now.

  8. I had the opposite experience. I wore a brand new pair of Hellcats to a Level II match. Was at the match from 7a - 5p, first time wearing the shoes, and feet were fine at the end of the day. But the range had a mixture of grass and sandy soil bays...so maybe that made the difference?
  9. If I were to install a lockout die, this would be my config as well.
  10. When I shot Xtreme in my .40, I used their 200 gr RNFP. Loaded them to 1.135" and pushed them with 4.3 gr of WST, which got me 172-ish PF. No pressure problems that I could see. Would assume that if you're only looking for 125 PF that you would likely be safe as well.
  11. Maybe separating by caliber --- 9 vs 40 vs 45 vs 38 vs etc. ?
  12. I run the Dawson extensions as well. While I can load to 20, I typically only load 18. At 20, it compresses my mag springs to the point where I get FTF on the last round or 2 due to a weakened/compressed spring. Swap in a new spring and I'm good to go.
  13. 9 or 40? I run an XDm 40 with extended basepads that will allow me to load to 20, possibly 21. However, when I do load to 20, I find that I can have a couple of issues: * wrecks my mag spring * mag doesn't fully seat if slide is closed (due to spring compression issues) So -- what happens if you only load to 18 or 19? Any issues? Or even 10 rounds? Any issues? I suspect that the mag may be too full, which isn't allowing the mag catch to be fully engaged. Recoil then kicks the mag out.
