  1. +1 Blue Bullets. Forum membership gets you a discount as well.
  2. Thanks. I’ve decided on the 160 Bayou Bullet over 3 Grp Tite Group, but will probably switch to VV N320, which burns a bunch cleaner. Aside from weight, the main reason I am changing is color. I shoot Blue Bullets in 9mm and don’t want to mix them up.
  3. Just getting into revolver with short colt and plan on TG and the 147 Blue Bullet. What’s a good starting point for TG and OAL?

    Squibs

    Revolver (38 Special) shooters have squid plroblems with light loads. Small amount of powder in a large case gets up against bullet a long way from primer. Happened to me once. Evident by unburned powder.
  5. Been there before. This is my IDPA revolver. Old Arkansas Department of Corrections gun. $299, but in good shape. Off to the local gunsmith and $350 dollars later I had a fantastic competition gun.
  6. Thanks. It’s a smaller shop that I have done business with an I feel they will deal. I’ve given it a reasonable look and it seems tight and unmodified with a low round count. Time to give it a closer inspection.
  7. Any thoughts on the 627 with the 4” barrel? There’s a used one at a local shop.
  8. Small stainless brush and a can of carburetor cleaner.
  9. If you shoot for fun, let it roll off. Most of us shoot to improve. In that case go to the range with a purpose. What are you not doing well, or what do you need to work on. As you shoot the match, walk through the stage with your goals in mind and mentally review the stage after you shoot it.
  10. I appreciate the lead on Ratcheting buckles. Just ordered.
  11. What these responses tell me is it doesn’t matter. Keep it clean, keep it lubed. Dry don’t work. That’s been my experience over many years.
  12. Slightly different take. I shoot limited and plan the stage for reloads, including allowances for potential extra shots. I never count, except if I am shooting revolver, which I have done a bunch of in IDPA.
  13. 650 has been great! Essentially got way ahead on .40. Liked it so much I am ordering conversion for 9mm.
