  1. Agreed How is anyone on a budget or does not have the time ever going to be able to shoot Nationals. HQ really does not give a crap about the shooters. Just revenue, PCC and Wilson Combat. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Sorry yes 2.8 Tightgroup. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. You said “I really want this bullet to work” so what’s not working? Is this affecting your accuracy, function or just messing with you mind? I run the exact same set up. Dillon 650 all factory dies with the exception of a horanady neck expander. I find the bullet sits better before seating with that die. 165 xtreme mixed brass, win primers and 3.8 gr TG. Set to COL of 1.157. My experience with this shows a range of 1.149 to 1.17. But every one feeds and goes bang just like the last. I run them primarily out of my STI but have also shot them in my G34 and my PSA PCC. Never any issues. So unless you are have issues with feeding or some really bad accuracy just feed the Blue machine and fire them off. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. My load for my G34 with 124gr Xtreem Round Nose is. 3.8 gr of TG a Winchester Primer 1.15 OAL. Right around 1090 FPS. CCI primers with this load always gave me a lower FPS. Your mileage may vary. As stated in other post. Start low work your way up. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. I am torn on this. I believe that difficulty should come from tight shots not difficult movers. I also believe that the majority of your targets should be within 15 yards and if the targets are past 15 yards the shooter should have the opportunity to shoot them again from another closer position if needed. I agree that going back to the basic self-defense principle is what the sport needs and that some of the actions in some of the stages are not even close to real life scenarios. But if that is the intention of IDPA why in the hell did we introduce PCC into our sport. 30 round magazine‘s non-concealable weapons are not what the founders of this sport intended. So I say again I’m torn on how to except this latest revision of the rules. Is it a game or is it real life practice make up my mind. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. At least for me I always find primers at a gun show cheaper then anywhere else. Last show I paid $27 out the door a 1000 for Winchester SPP. Always negotiate pricing with gun show vendors. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  8. I saw yesterday that Midway had no hazmat fee and 10-15% off Winchester primers. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. I’m shooting 124 gr Xtreem with my PCC using 4.2 of 231 and runs great. A lot of people complain about delivery with Xtreem but I never have an issue. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. My loads for my Smith 686 with 158 JHP. 14.9 of 2400. 15 gr and I have to tap the cases out of the cylinder. So in my opinion you’re loading them to hot. You’re going to get a lot of lead build up. I would stay around 14 find something comfortable no sense in pushing them that hard. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Been using Winchester in my 9mm for 2 Years now after comparing to Rem and CCI. I found the Winchester to be the most consistent and softer then the CCI. Never bothered me that the Red Color was more or less in a cup. Also found that the CCI primers delivers 20 FPS less velocity then win or rem. Found Rem to be the softest of the 3. Just my results your mileage may vary. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    In my experience 3.3gr is getting a bit hot and if you have the Glock barrel it has an unsupported area. Hence what is called a Glock Smile. I’d back down the load to 3.1 or under. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. All I can add is I run a 165 RN with 2.85 TG out of an STI and have great grouping and accurate out to 50 Yds. Agree with the last post. Gun just don’t like it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Yup throw them out Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. I have had my LNL for a very long time. One of the very early units with a low SN. I have upgraded to the new shell ejector and added the case feeder. I have had a very few issues but when I have Hornady has been very helpful and quick on the replacement part. I felt that if I had any timing issues it was an easy adjustment to correct. The only drawback I see now is the case feeder will sometimes jam up but not as much as it first did before I added a plastic stick like separator on the inside bowl to help prevent it. In the past I have had a Dillon SD and had no issues with that as well. With the cost of reloading equipment its hard to think about buying another press. Hope you are able to correct your issues with your LNL
