  1. Ah, I didn't know that [emoji106] Skickat från min SM-G950F via Tapatalk
  2. The Meoptas are MUCH brighter than Vortex viper and strike eagle. I haven't used a razor though, so I can't speak for them. But my Vortexes are not bright enough for competitive shooting IMHO. They could probably work if you have an offset mounted red dot for the fast close range shots. I dont like offset sights though, but that is a personal preference. For reference I have a Vortex viper PST 1-4, a Vortex strike eagle1-8, a Meopta ZD 1-4 and a Meopta Meostar R1 1-4. The vortex are great scopes for their price, and have super great warranty. But both optics and recticles are much better in the Meoptas IMHO. And I can really recommend the ZD. The "chevron" reticle is great for long range shooting, without feeling cluttered.

  3. A heat shield for the barrel is very nice to have, especially if you load with your strong hand. I really like a fiber optics front bead as well. After a long day at the range with alot of less than ideal shooting positions you might want a softer recoil pad also, I know I did. An opening of the loading port never hurts either. /Fredrik Skickat från min SM-G950F via Tapatalk

  5. Thanks again for all the advices, guys! The Z-gun caddies and belt looked really interresting. I couldn't find a dealer in the EU, but maybe I can import it directly from Russia...
  6. Yeah, I think it's a very strange rule, and I don't understand the point of it at all...
  7. Thanks for sharing your experience! I hadn't heard of Magload. I'll check them out as well. How do you fasten the big Ezload and King caddies to your belt? And what kind of belt do you use for them? Isn't it maximum 28 rounds for a long course btw? And I think that you can't start with condition 3 if there are more than 23 round in the stage. But I could very likely have misunderstood the rules. And I will probably need a lot of extra ammo anyway [emoji4]
  8. How du you pull from the 8S4Q?If you pull out the top shells first, can you pull the lower shells more or less straight up, so you don't need so much force?
  9. Thanks for the input guys! I should probably use the load 2 technique, but it's fun to learn something new [emoji4] And the little testing I've done with quad loading wasn't as catastrophic as could be expected [emoji3] In IPSC I'm limited to have all shells around the waist btw, if that changes things... And I need a minimum of 24 rounds, but I think I'll want 28 or more since I'll probably drop some and miss some targets...
  10. Hi guys, I've been shooting IPSC handgun and rifle here in Sweden for some years, but now I want to try out shotgun with my Mossberg 590. Could you please help me decide what shell caddies to use for quad loading? I would like to get a King gen5 caddy, but I'm happy if I'll get the time to shoot one competion a year, so I really can't justify the price of those. So I've mostly been looking at the other end of the price range. Taccom sport series seems to be a popular choice for the budget oriented. But I haven't got the largest hands (size 8 in gloves) so I don't get a very good grip on the lower shell near the wrist. I don't have much problem getting the shells in shotgun when reloading, but could it be a problem when I fetch the shells from the caddy? Since the lower shells are held in place with clips... I'm also wondering about the difference between the canted 8S4 caddies and the 8S4Q caddies with a bottom plate. 8S4: 8S4Q: would one of them be better than the other in this regard? I'm also a little interrested in the EZLOAD caddies. They look a lot like the KING caddies, but with a lower price tag. Has anyone tried both, and can share their thoughts about them? EZLOAD: KING:
