    Is vvn320 worth the extra cost

    I have only shot about 500 rounds of it. So far It does seem a little less sooty than WST. I'm mainly trying it out because a buddy of mine who shoots n320 said that he doesn't see much of a velocity swing with temperature fluctuation. I end up bumping WST up .1 when I have to chrono in hotter weather just want to dial in a consistent light load so that I don't have to keep track of it.

    Empty or loaded mags during dryfire?

    I got a sampler of purple bullets that I make dummies out of. All my live ammo is blue bullets or jacketed so it is easy to tell dummies from live.

    Winchester primers.......

    I find Winchesters are slightly out of round sometimes and flip/crush. they go bang well enough. I use them when i cant get federals.

    Limited Ready Glock17

    Minor and shorter barrel/sight radius will put you at a disadvantage competitively but shoot it and enjoy.

    All this talk of 1050s made me put in an order yesterday for one.

    Dry brass tumbling elixir of choice

    Same except with corn cob. Someone gave me some Flitz but I haven't had any brass to prep lately.

    Is vvn320 worth the extra cost

    I normally use WST for my normal loads but recently got some N320 to try out. So far, I really like it. Has a soft recoil pulse but very similar to WST. Plan on using WST for practice and N320 for matches. Still need to do more testing but I load about the same for both powders at 170(ish) pf 4.7gr 180gr Blue Bullet @1.18", 5" Schuemann 4.2gr 200gr Blue Bullet, @1.18", 5" Schuemann

    Switching from 180gr to 200gr.

    I’m actually in the process of switching from 180s to 200s. Just shot a 250 sample pack and like how they feel. The slide on my 2011 is pretty light and don’t really notice much slow down. I did about a 10% drop in powder to match pf.

    +1 for Immortal. I have only had good transactions with them. It is also nice that they give back to the sport.

    Time to upgrade....Dillon or Mark 7?

    I'm in the same boat. Wanting to automate and currently on a 650. It is a tough choice between 1050 and Evo.. Was looking at the Evo Pro at Nats and it does look like a sweet machine. I have a tougher choice as I'm also considering an Ammobot too.

    Factory .40 for Major

    I 2nd Freedom. Never had any issues with them making 172-173 at matches (glock 35). Used the HP and FP.

    2011 sight block limited

    I’m running an 8# in my 5” Limcat perfect sight. Runs great and super flat.

    40&9 top end

    I actually have a 2011 both with a 9mm and 40 cal upper up on the classifieds. I really liked running the 9mm for falling steel for the lighter recoil and higher capacity. then run the 40 for uspsa limited.
  15. I was shooting the perfect sight but have moved to the tracker for matches. It has just a better feel for me. I think that I also transistion a bit quicker with it also. My hand gets pretty ripped up if it is a bigger match or longer practice session with the aggressive grip but <200 round count matches are easy.
