    Tactical Sport Orange technical thread.

    my problem isnt pain from the mag release but the ease at which it drops the mag. It seems if my palm even brushes it when i shoot the mag drops. Ive grinded it down to not much more than a nub, but still....any suggestions on how to make the mag HARDER to drop?

    what am I missing about .40 S&W reloading

    Thanks all. To the folks who recommended the Redding die, wouldn’t the Dillon decapping resizing die accomplish the same?

    what am I missing about .40 S&W reloading

    Thanks all. Slow brain today on my part! heavier bullets, duh! Thanks for reminding me! and for the load recommendation. More accepted!
  4. I've recently decided to start reloading 40 caliber Smith & Wesson for USPSA limited. Looking over the velocities of commercial 40 caliber they are usually 1000 ft./s with 180 grain bullet giving a power factor of 180. If I reload to make major I need to have a minimum velocity of 920 to make 165. It's not much of a difference from 1000 ft./s. Cost aside, and .40 is not much more than 9 mm these days, is there any reason to reload? I do it in 9 mm and 45 ACP to make a softer shooting round than commercial stuff, other than federals 150 syntek. What am I missing about reloading 40? I'm certain there is a lot, so have pity on me.

    CZ 75b extended safety

    I'll add that changed to SA and shooting commercial loads it is amazing, and easily, accurate. Likes 15 pound recoil spring. Almost a replacement for my 9mm s2 !

    Yeah, should have said .40 in original posting. But thanks again for the help.

    A whole new housing is a bridge too far. Will try the tumbler. Thanks.

    CZ 75b extended safety

    So the ambi safety isn't a standard configuration? I don't need ambi - would rather have extended safety for competition. Is it possible to change to single side, if no ambi extended safety exists?

    CZ 75b extended safety

    Now I'm totally confused! My 75B has ambi safeties. Don't recall if it has a D- end not the right side. I think I'll call the various CZ experts

    CZ 75b extended safety

    I've done a search, but want to make sure - is there is extended safety for 75b? Seems others have asked and not found one. have tried CZ custom and cajun websites but didn't see one. Thanks
