  1. This is all excellent advice, hopefully we can keep this going for all new incoming RO’s!!! I went ahead and ordered myself a new timer in celebration of getting my card, I’m super excited to continue and grow and learn in the sport! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. David, I’ll be taking it in Gonzales, Louisiana Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. To your point Joe, I have seen shooters do this. While I don’t think it’s sportsmanlike to cause I ruckus I know some who do. Some of the worst scenes I’ve witnessed were very veteran shooters. This is not a part of the service I look forward too, but it will come with the territory unfortunately. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Good afternoon, I’m excited to be taking my NROI cert class this weekend with one of my local clubs. I’m really excited to better learn more about our sport, regulation, procedures. I’ve been shooting for quite a few years now and usually end up running a tablet at matches, so I figured why not further my involvement and education. I’ve been brushing up on all the rules and practice tests, however I must admit I’m still a little intimidated for what comes AFTER I pass. I can remember this one time a few years ago as a shooter when a quick thinking RO stopped me amongst a unknowingly dangerous situation. During the course of fire I had a softer shot occur while shooting at a small steel popper. I just assumed I missed. The gun failed the chamber the next round, I racked the slide to load a new round. Before I realized what had happened, my RO stopped me. I failed to register that the “soft” round was a squib. The bullet had stopped and barely cleared the chamber. The following attempts at chambering rounds were making making contact and preventing the slide from fully closing. Thank god it had not gone an 1/8” of an inch deeper. That RO was more aware of what had happened that I was! I realize that there is experience involved in these types of situations, however I guess my biggest concern is that I encounter a new/ inexperienced shooter, like I was at that time, and I won’t catch a less than obvious safety issue. I’m lucky enough to have a friend who is an incredibly versed/ experience RO I know I can’t count on for help learned the ropes. Those of you who are RO’s, would you care to share some tips or experiences that new incoming RO’s could benefit from. I’m looking forward to further learning and growth in this sport and want to be the best RO I can be! Thanks all!!! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Update: Adjusting the bearing cam seems to have done the trick. I adjusted it to accelerate the plate timing. I only pressed 100 last night but all 100 were flawless and the issue didn’t occur. Thanks guys! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. xxl7evenlxx Excellent pictures, detail, advice. I think it’s a timing related issue. This should help tremendously. Thank you! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. I’ve tried so tight it doesn’t move to so loose the plate has an 1/8” inch vertical play. I don’t think that is the case. I understand why you suggested this, as too tight does limit motion but case plate torque was my first thing to play with. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. I will take a look at this later this evening and update Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. When the plate stops it is centered. I can confirm it’s centered using the tool. The issue seems to be related to indexing. The best I can describe it is to tell how it feels. It feels like the plate does not index quickly enough. If I’m putting out a completed round every 4-5 seconds this occurs. If I’m anticipating or feeling for the issue, I can feel the primer make the bottom of the case. When I feel it occur, I can back off, then try to reseat and it goes in flawlessly. It seems as if it’s an issue with the actual motion of the plate indexing. I’ve tried tightening the case plate, loosening it, cleaning it. I don’t know. I’m stumped.

  10. I’ve loaded on a 650 for a few years now. With the release of the 750 model, I decided to upgrade. All in all it’s a nice machine. I’m having an issue with the primer system. On the upstroke (pressing the primer into the pocket) I’m having and issue where the primer is occasionally (1 of every 20 or so) clipping the primer pocket before it’s pressed in. It feels like it’s pressing the primer in place before the case is above it stops or is fully in place. The frequency increases when speed increases and decreases at a slower speed. Dillon has suggested aligning the system with their tool. I have done this 3 times now. I’m still having the same issue. They’ve now requested that if it continues I send the machine back. Has anyone else experienced this? Did you get resolution? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  12. Did we just become best friends? YUP!!!! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Yes, I’m 100% it’s off. I used SS dowels through the comp with the receiver on a flat surface. It’s quite a few degrees off. It’s visible to the eye though, as it drew my attention. I don’t know if it was intended that way. I’ll contact them. It doesn’t affect performance, but again it’s noticeable to the eye and for a $1750 rifle I expect a little more.

  14. I received my new JP PCC, the pin and welded muzzle brake is clocked around 3 degrees off. Any suggestions. I’m not trying to be a dick but when you pay that much for a rifle, you expect some QC. Anyone had any similar experiences? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. I’m looking at changing over from HP 38 to Alliant Sport Pistol for use in my carry optics pistols. I’m currently using coated 139 grain LRN. What is the general consensus on this stuff? I like the price and availability of this stuff. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
