    STI DVC 9 Major...cracked comp question

    Actually that isn’t even where mine cracked. I know that’s the normal spot but mine was on the bottom where the comp meets the barrel. You can kind of see it in this pic. Only reason I knew something happened was because I had rounds hitting like 5 feet high while practicing... I was skipping them off the comp on the way out.

    STI DVC 9 Major...cracked comp question

    Yes they gave me a new in the plastic gun. It is the newer DVC model as well. Different comp design, RTS2 optic and a different charge handle.

    STI DVC 9 Major...cracked comp question

    I sent mine in about 3 months ago and it was about 2 months to get it back. My frame was cracked as well though so there was no fixing it.

    I read about it being temp sensitive somewhere but I can’t remember where now. Probably a forum. I think I put that there just to remind myself to test the theory, which I should do this weekend.

    Probably hard to tell here too but Lovex is certainly finer than Silo.

    13.8 to the rim. Just like AA#7 Here is a pic of 9.7gr. There’s still some room left...

    You’re welcome. I hadn’t even heard of it until maybe a month ago. I loaded up another 100 rounds last night to run a few drills with but my initial thoughts are very positive.

    Yeah absolutely. That’s some good data you got. I’ll do that when I get home.

    Thank you. I guess I should have mentioned this in the original post but I load on a Hornady LNL right now which has a pretty good snap to it when the shell plate rotates. So the powder spilling probably wouldn’t be quite as big of a deal with other presses I assume. There’s still some room left, certainly not to the top. I’ll take a picture of a case when I get home this afternoon so you can see what I mean. I can also fill one to 10+ gr which is where I’d guess you’d be at with a 115 and see where that gets you.

    Thanks. It was a fun project. I got that Shooters World Major from Grafs. I’ll probably start looking for an 8lb bottle soon.

    Alright, I just finished testing those 5 powders I mentioned before. It was difficult to do it all in one sitting due to Thanksgiving and all that so I was just running out back and testing one after work or when I had a little time. I plan to shoot them all together at some point and I’d also like to get some slow-mo of the gun shooting each but that’ll be another time. Also the notes are stuff that I found important. Obviously they may be different with a different shooter. Don’t take them as the gospel. Hopefully this can help some of you that may want to try a different recipe. Accurate #7 Caliber: 9mm COAL: 1.165 Bullet Weight: 124gr Everglades JHP Primer: Winchester SPP Charge: 9.6gr PF: 172 Muzzle Rise: Dot stays in screen. Dot Tracking: Straight up and down. Little bit of a bounce. Punch: Moderate Accuracy: Good Double Tap: Returns high. Dot had a streak to it . Other: Meters terrific. Case is close to top but doesn’t spill on press. Loud. Shooters World Major (Lovex) D037-01 Caliber: 9mm COAL: 1.165 Bullet Weight: 124gr Everglades JHP Primer: Winchester SPP Charge: 9.7gr PF: 169 Muzzle Rise: Very little rise. Dot Tracking: Straight up. Returned to zero very well. Punch: Soft in hand. Accuracy: Good Double Tap: Quick and clean. Other: Apparently it’s temp sensitive. Meters well. Spills easy. Relatively loud. Silhouette Caliber: 9mm COAL: 1.165 Bullet Weight: 124gr Everglades JHP Primer: Winchester SPP Charge: 7.7gr PF: 171 Muzzle Rise: Decent rise to top of screen. Dot Tracking: Straight up and down. No dip. Punch: Moderate punch. Accuracy: Good. Double Tap: Clean and quick. Other: Meters great. Spills easy on the press. Not to loud. HS6 Caliber: 9mm COAL: 1.165 Bullet Weight: 124gr Everglades JHP Primer: Winchester SPP Charge: 8.1gr PF: 171 Muzzle Rise: Dot rises to top of screen. Dot Tracking: Slight wobble? Returns a little low. Punch: Moderate/Heavy Accuracy: Good Double Tap: Fast doubles seemed rough compared to others. I would say not great but not terrible either. Other: Doesn’t seem as loud as other powders. Doesn’t meter the best. Winchester Auto Comp Caliber: 9mm COAL: 1.165 Bullet Weight: 124gr Everglades JHP Primer: Winchester SPP Charge: 7.0gr PF: 169 Muzzle Rise: Pretty good. Not quite to top of screen. Dot Tracking: Straight up and down. Slight dip. Punch: Relatively soft. Accuracy: Good. Double Tap: A lot of “bounce” on doubles. I had a tendency to shoot high on the second shot. Other: Not to loud comparatively. Gassy. I still have some messing around to do but as of right now Lovex will be what I’m shooting. It felt great to shoot and easy to go fast with.

    9mm Major powder choices?

    I’ve made up loads for 5 different powders and had the chance to test 3 of them so far. I’ll have all my info by the end of the weekend and will post it here. The powders I’m messing with now are: HS6 WAC Silo AA#7 Lovex
  13. Great advise. Thanks
  14. So you’re using 10gr and highhope is using 10.5. I was going to start testing at 9gr but from your numbers I’m thinking that’ll be a little low. Maybe I should get a little closer to 10?

    Crap 3n38 was another I wanted to try. I’ll try to get my hands on some. With that said I really don’t want to like it. That stuff ain’t cheap Mine is 9mm as well
