  1. No expert here but it would make logical sense that the recoil impulse would be less, using a lighter bullet with the same powder weight. Again, no expert but there is less mass being pushed with the same propellent. The bullet will exit the barrel quicker, expelling the gases out and causing less back pressure. Maybe that's not the exact science but I think you guys get what I'm describing.
  2. I pretty sure we've all seen it happen. Shooter engages a moving steel target, like a Texas Star. They knock off 1 plate. It starts spinning and one or more plates fall off without being hit. I've only witness this at club matches. How is this officially scored? Is it equipment failure and a reshoot or is it scored in the favor of the shooter?
  3. Hey fellas, rather than start a new post decided to ask here. The mags are not reliably feeding the first round when I have them loaded to 23. Again, running the Henning +6 on the 17 round factory mags that came with my X5 Legion. Also running the grams spring and follower kit. The 23rd round is tight to get in. The problem is when I have a round chambered and 23 in the mag. Not always but it does happen. I'm running the 12 lb recoil spring that came with the Legion. I don't necessarily want to change to a heavier recoil spring since the gun is running well with my lo
  4. Hey all. Happy New Year. My in-laws just moved to Vegas. Summerlin to be exact. We will be visiting them every few weeks and I'd like to shoot some matches out there during visits. I found a couple of clubs that host USPSA matches. Tropang and Silver State Shooting Club. Can anyone share info about the matches at these clubs? Are there any other clubs within a reasonable distance that hosts USPSA? Any level 2 or higher matches that I should look out for? Thanks!
  5. So it's been about 3 weeks since starting my transition to CO. I've been dry firing consistently. Almost everyday... 2-3 sessions on some days. I've had 3 live fire sessions as well. What's going well... - Staying target focused - Accuracy - Transition speed, especially onto tougher targets such as 8" plates at distance. Always been a weakness. - Shooting on the move - calling shots What needs work... - Reacting to called shots. I still have the conserve ammo mindset from Production. - WHO index - Low follow up shots on fast spli
  6. Just an update. I ran the Henning +6 base pads on the Sig 17 round mags with the stock springs and followers. I had no issues with feeding or any other issues. Albeit, only ran maybe about 400 rounds so I don't really know for sure how reliable. Could only load 22 rounds with this setup. I have since switched to the grams springs and followers. Again, no issues with feeding, etc over 2 range sessions. About 650 rounds. Can load them up with 23 rounds. Although, that 23 round is a little tough to get in and also needs a little nudge to chamber.
  7. How new? Do you know when they began shipping with the SRO pattern and do you know if these also allow for DPP direct mount?
  8. I was just starting to get better at calling shots with my iron sights. But in all honesty, half the time, it was more about how the shot "felt" than seeing the sights misaligned right as they started to lift. What I mean is, my grip felt off or I know I jerked the trigger, etc. The dot clearly showed me every single thing that happened before, during and after the shot broke. And that was even while shooting fast splits or transitions. I was really surprised by how much you can see. Now I just need to learn to use that feedback in real time.
  9. One range session today and this was my biggest takeaway. It was amazing how much information you get from the dot.
  10. Lots of great information shared. Much is confirmation/validation of stuff I surmised from my experience shooting Production or stuff I've been told. There were a few nuances that were shared that I didn't previously consider. Still, your advice and information has been hugely helpful. Its good to know that my minds in the right place with this shift. I just got home from the range. I ran the gun and dot through the paces. Did some draws to 2 shots onto an open target and various distances. Draw onto 8" steel at 15 yards. Transitions on paper and steel at various distances. Double
  11. Already not following your advice after the 1st bullet. LOL I was shooting an SP-01 and will now be shooting an X5 Legion. I've been drying firing with it everyday for a week now and it seems like I'm indexing it well. The grip is a little different but the weight feel the same. Gonna have to get used the action though. Will definitely work on the SHO and WHO drill. The little I've dry fired in each, it's where I've struggled most to find the dot or should I say, it's where I lose it most. When you say " keep your focal plane down at the target", you mean the same as staying targ
  12. Wait. Do I look at the spot I want to hit on the targets or the dot? Your post is not clear. LOL
