    What's the latest AA7 load?

    I really like aa#7 for 9 major, I'm using 9.6gr 1.170oal 125gr zero jhp 173pf and as far as 115gr I've loaded to 10.2gr 1.150oal 115gr zero jhp but it was only at 167pf thats to close for me so ill need to go up a couple 10th's of a grain to get me around 170ish where id be happy to be at. 5.5in kkm no holes.

    Favorite powder for 9mm Major in open pistols

    My barrel must be a little slow i guess because i have a 5.5" kkm barrel no holes just the comp and with 10.2gr of aa#7 and 115gr zero jhp im only getting about 167pf if im remembering correctly

    Favorite powder for 9mm Major in open pistols

    I just tried 10.6gr of aa#7 in my press just to see what the spillage might be, and thankfully it had little to no spillage though I had just gotten a Hornady progressive press and had to do a couple things to smooth out the rotation of the shell plate because I was having a ton of spillage with 7.6gr of silhouette and after I did those couple things it had little to no spillage. I was really disappointed with the hornady when i first got it but now it works great.

    Favorite powder for 9mm Major in open pistols

    I had tried some loads using aa#7 with a 115gr and worked up to 10.2gr at 1.150 and it made about 166pf. I plan to work up a little more and as far as i can tell its still not compressed at 10.2gr. I cant say anything on feel yet i was just working up loads to get up to make pf. I hear a lot of people like 115's and i have about 400 115gr bullets left so ill be loading up more and compare them to the 125gr.

    Favorite powder for 9mm Major in open pistols

    I've tired AA#7, Silhouette, HS6, Autocomp and CFE pistol. I'm still pretty new to open and will need more time to figure out what works best but so far my favorite powders are AA#7 and Silhouette. I'm loading 7.6gr of Silhouette, 1.170oal, 125gr zero jhp and win small pistol primers its right around 172pf. 9.7gr AA#7, 1.170oal, 125gr zero jhp and win small pistol primers its right around 173pf. To me AA#7 shoots a little flatter than Silhouette but AA#7 has more concussion and a harder hit in the hand. AA#7 is pretty clean burning so far from what I've noticed and still not sure on Silhouette yet but I'll know better after this weekend. I'm also starting to mess around a little with 115gr bullets but dont really have any info or opinions for them yet.

    Red Dot Optics

    Yeah I'd say its between the rts2 and the DPP. I'm sure your gonna like it, that big window is nice to have especially when your a new shooter like me lol.

    Red Dot Optics

    Hey Don, Wish I knew that you where looking at getting the Holosun, I have one on my gun that you could have taken a look at. I met you on Saturday after the Steel Classic was over. So far I like it but I also have almost no experience with optics on pistols since I just started shooting open. I do have a little bit of experience with the DPP on .22lr open pistol and the Holosun is huge compared to it, the dot is just a little bit brighter on the DPP but its not a big difference.

    Flat or curved trigger

    I'm apart of the minority here but I prefer a curved trigger, it just feels more comfortable to me. I've tried curved, flat and the ENOS curved trigger and they all felt good but the curved worked best for me. It really comes down to personal preference and if its possible I'd give them all a try before saying which one is the best for you.

    Advantages and disadvantages of 155mm mags

    I bought 1)170, 1)155, and a 3)140's to get me going. after some practice and seeing what gave me the best results as reload speed and the benefit of the extra rounds. I've come to the conclusion at least for me I'm quicker and more comfortable reloading the 155 mags and the 3-4 extra rounds I get are a plus. only downside is that I wish I had bought 3)155's and only 1)140 lol

    What do you recommend to get Match video

    I really like the Polaroid cube. its cheap, small and light weight easy to use and if it ever breaks I wont lose any sleep over it. I have mine attached to my hat using a tripod mount, since the tripod mount has a threaded hole in it i drilled a small hole in the brim of my hat and put a screw through it, i also stippled the bottom of the mount to help it bite into the hat and the camera isn't going anywhere. It also have the ability to tip the camera up or down to however i want it. You can also connect with an andoid device that has Wi-Fi and see what the camera sees so you can adjust where you want it and re-watch your videos.

    Double Alpha X mag pouch issues?

    Ha, I just had 2 of these pouches delivered today and then I see this lol. Hopefully I wont have the same issue ?

    Halosun 510c

    I've been thinking about it, its big yes but compared to the size of the window vs other optics I think its not a huge difference for what your gaining. honestly I think the c-mores slide ride look huge and the window is a decent size but still smaller than the 510c. Another plus would be the 510c uses standard 2032 batterys unlike the c-more and has solar option as well. I haven't actually looked through the 510c to see what the dot looks like and its brightness but if it looks about like a DPP I think I might be sold.

    Pa matches

    if your refering to the hollow points in Jersey yes its very bad, could be arrested if your found with them, and when i mean if your found with them you dont even need to have a gun on you it could just be some loose rounds in your car to get in big trouble. it's a really stupid law ?

    Pa matches

    Keystone is in Muncy which is like an 1 1/2hr from Scranton and they do have USPSA but its not every month I think and there very small matches. Factoryville would be the closest to Scranton I believe and Its pretty good there its small only 2 bays but they usually have 4-5 stages. If your in Scranton your actually in a pretty good location for really good matches. Matamoras is really good and about an hour from Scranton and there expanding, they usually have 6 decent sized stages and soon should be able to have at least 8 by next year. Ontelaunee though is the best around that im aware of and just a little over an hour from Scranton, its huge and has enough bays to do more than 13 stages but most matches are 8-10. I like it so much i travel a little over 2hrs to go there.
