  1. Yeah. I wouldn’t trust doing 20 reloadable on a TTI. That last one is tight and really have to slam home the mag.unfortunately, I have only used the TTIs.
  2. 4.3gr n320 under 200 gr blue at 1.18-1.185 is around 173pf for me out of a 5” Schumann barrel.
  3. I followed the 10% rule for going to 200s from 180 with good results.
  4. 4.0-4.2gr of N320 over a 200gr coated @1.130-1.135 should put you pretty close. Start a bit low and work the load up but it should give you a good ballpark.
  5. I posted it above. I shoot n320 for matches and practice with WST (generally). N320 meters a bit better so I get a bit more consistent loads.
  6. I have alternated rounds in a mag and couldn’t really tell the difference. This was in 70-80 degree weather. I added that as I haven’t tested temperature sensitivity on either load but it has been pretty solid making pf.
  7. I really like 200gr blue over 4.3 gr n320 @1.18-1.185. Makes 172 out of my Schuemann barrel.I do the same load with 4.3 WST as my practice ammo to cut costs and eat up a surplus of powder.
  8. I’ve bought a bunch of stuff from immortal and been very happy.
  9. I bought the plastic drum kobalt cement mixer from Lowe’s. They are actually on sale for 300 right now. If you get a 10% off coupon and then buy discount gift cards and you might be able to use a credit card member mall for about 20% total. I like the plastic drum and also cover the blades with rubber hose. It is relatively quiet. I do a 5 gal bucket at a time and still have room
  10. Last time I was looking at a pistol the gf said “if you get another pistol, I get a puppy”. I ended up picking out the puppy and she got the gun.
  11. I was able to find that it is used in the non-toxic Federal Premium BallistiClean frangie ammo. if anyone has reloaded it, let me know.
  12. Anyone familiar with brass with “FC NX 9mm Luger” head stamp? I’m assuming that it is federal. I’m familiar with NT but I’ve never seen NX and don’t see anything on a google search.
  13. I run the same as this except dillon seating die on my 650.
  14. Nice. That’s a good deal.My gf just laughed at me when I told her she should buy me one.
  15. Both are really good quality. I shoot blue because they ship fast to me, good quality and 10% discount on 10k+. I like that the new ones don’t give smurf fingers also.
  16. That’s a really good diagram to show people how profile affects oal.
  17. I haven’t shot a g5 17. the 34 MOS is a really solid overall performer for competition.
  18. I run 200 blues with 4.3gr N320 @1.185 and runs about 170 pf out of a 5" Schuemann barrel. Been very happy with it.
  19. Thats pretty much my 124 gr load also. Have had good results with it.
  20. The 35 is a solid platform. I started with a gen 3 35 in Ltd and now I shoot it in production. You can’t really go wrong with it. I have thought about building a TF sightblock gun out of a Leo trade in 22 for the hell of it. The 35 offers more flexibility overall in case you want to use it in prod. The frame weight has has limited holster availability and if you go non-kydex you will have to mod it. If you go custom kydex you will have to have a very clean draw or it will bind.ghost holster isn’t too bad of a mod job but the locking mechanism is a bit awkward.
  21. I was going the math and 5.0 is a few tenths more than expected. I use 3.2 with a 200 gr blue and make about 133pf. so 3.2/.75=4.26 gr and you will need a bit more of jhp vs moly. Not sure what your oal is, I run about 1.135 and shooting from a g35.
  22. I was trying to point out is how off the rails the conversation was getting from the actual question with the CO competition debate.
  23. This thread seems to have taken a serious turn from the OP’s question of looking for edc optic suggestion.
