  1. Yeah it’s good, fairly faint on the lower settings but bright on the highest.  Not as bright as the Razor, but was easy to see and didn’t wash out against trees , houses etc.   Haven’t had it to the range yet to see how it does in the desert landscape. 

  2. Picked one up and the glass is phenomenal! and on par with both Razor 1-6  and Accupower 1-8  that I've peeked through.  I picked up the 1-8 BRS with the R-14 reticule and from a look at the data (223 factory ammo @2,700 to 3.,000fps) it should match the bullet drops that are built in to the scope already (FFP so should bullet drop and any power).  Ended up with this one as I wanted a dual purpose scope for both competition and varmints.  The thing is a beast and feels very good,  even on the edges has true color ( from what I can tell) , I actually haven't had a chance to even sight it in yet due to work schedule and vacation travel.  


  3. Picked up some Vectan Ba9 1/2,  didn’t know if anyone had some load data for a 5”  barrel,  40 of course.   Did the search and couldn’t find anything but the data sheets I already have.   Haven’t had time to Chrono rounds yet, and tired of the WSF.

    When I switched to 200's I worked up a major load for it then switched to a 165gr bullet without changing anything on the press and made a great minor load. I'm using 200 gr RN Bayou's with WST at 1.135 for major and 165 gr RNFP Bayou's for minor. Major PF is 170 and minor is 143. YMMV...



    Going to give this a recipe a try as I have a few 165gr fmj laying around and see, if this works.

    For what it’s worth, I once made some minor 180s and it felt sluggish in a tanfo with an 8 lb recoil spring. Didn’t like it at all. Now in an Infinity i shoot 180s for major and just swapped in some 140s with the same powder charge for steel. The difference is noticeable, same 11lb recoil spring, but not like holy cow that’s super soft noticeable. I chrono’d them and was in the high 700s I think. If I was to make a load for a major all steel match, I would drop the powder charge and probably stick a lighter recoil spring in. Then again I couldn’t get the 140s to feed in the MBF at all...

    Have you tried going to the 165 instead of the 140s to see what they chrono at with the same power charge?

  6. Haven’t considered going down (yet).  What I’m trying to do is build a soft load for steel on 180 then switch to heavier 200 , keep the same charge and have a major load for matches.  Trying to get the best out of wash without having to adjust the powder charge for ease of use.  

  7. Winchester WSF.  Came with my 650 when I picked it up here in the valley. Running it as I have 10lbs.  The factory load data says 5.2gr for 180 nothing for 200.  I’ve sweetspotted at 4.5 for the 180.  Shoots soft with fast sight recovery have really shaved some time off my stages.

    Have loaded at 4.2 and gun still ran,  below 4.0 she won’t cycle back to battery. 

  8. Did a forum search and nothing popped up.   Running 180gr fmj flat nose, Loaded 4.7grs of powder and a OAL of 1.018 in my TSO.         I Am switching to 200gr flat nose fmj. Do I need to drop the powder to maintain the same power factor?  Not sure what the extra bullet weight will change?  Figured I would ask defore loading up a batch of 20 at different weights to see what ran the best.  

  9. Anyone had this issue yet, I have the CZ orange with facotory mags, CZ Ghost +3 base pads / springs and their followers.  Just the other day the slide pushed the follow out or the top of magazine and jammed half open on way to battery.   The followers don't look tipped and can load 21 (40 S7W) they were workin awesome now have 2 of the 4 doing it.  Any Ideas??
