  1. think ammo makers are consolidating. Started with the lead free only being small, then 45 acp became kinda random. Kinda a pain. As for me I can tell the difference in the brass until I try to load a primer.
  2. I prefer red, everywhere I have been but Hawaii where everything is red. Friend of mine actually did a research project on this. IIRC , seems the human eye is physically capable of seeing green the best. However the human brain is mentally programmed to filter out green. As nothing green wants to eat us, and not much green is worth eating. Maybe the Amber may be the way to go,, I mean tigers are amber.
  3. turning the chair around and leaning against the back can equal match DQ 10.6 unsportsmanlike like conduct. Altering stage props, targets or any other part of a COF without the approval of the Range Master is subject to the provisions of 10.6 Not to mention sit has a definition. WSB says sit not lean. Sit means you are in an upright position with you weight supported by your buttocks, not your feet.
  4. you dont need a service for an MSDS, now called SDS, just google the product and sds. Like most gun products on the market. Most likely these are just grossly overpriced and repackaged standard products. They are just a bit of detergent and alcohol.
  5. H110 will give you top velocity. 2400 will give you near top with a less recoil. One thing 2400 can be reduced. IAW most manuals H110 cant by more than 10%. What kinda velocity and bullet type, weight you looking for ?
  6. didnt break, came unscrewed. I bought into the hype and have a couple 5" guns with one piece FLGR's, I can get them apart without issue so no real issue with them or need to change. My 6" guns no way to get the the 2 piece rods in without taking them apart first. Which then they proceed to unscrew when you shoot. Fool me once shame on you, fool me twice shame on me, I got fooled once by this junk and after about second time to the range with new gun I chucked the POS. Good for you if yours have never come apart. I have a 100% failure rate from 2 MFG's... I can guarantee there wont be a 3rd. Be glad to sell you the one I have, would say 2 but the STI went in the garbage long ago
  7. Pin loads for this season,, which starts the 4th although I cant make it. So be august for me. 255 Bayou, 6 inch barrel RIA SS 45 ACP 4.5 grs AA2.. 743 FPS, for 189 pf,,, Chrono in the heat probably 90 yesterday,, 742,742,745,741, 745, 742 , 743... Seems like I won the SD game.. am thinking of bumping it up to 4.6 grs and finishing loading this case before I switch my press over. I have a case of soft, coated 230 gr bullets Id like to try. Oh because it does matter, my club shoots 5 pins front of a 4X8 plywood, so about 3.5 from rear of table.
  8. I have never ONCE cleaned a primer pocket, other than a hand reamer on crimped brass.
  9. then there is also the Oneguyitis,,, A MD that cant delegate, micro manages everything, keeps the stage layouts a secret, wiith only one copy of the stages that he wont let anyone look at., runs himself ragged . Help that does come early stands around most of the time with no direction,, and then next time dont bother showing up early at all. Then said match directors seem to be the first ones to boo hoo they dont get any help. But to the op,, showing up early and doing walkthroughs while folks are building stages is a dick move. If I was MD I would put the range off limits until after the shooters brief to non registered help. You pre walks probably arnt helping you much anyways. Shouldnt take more than 5 minutes and a few trips pasting and watching a couple runs to get a game plan,,
  10. I used to shoot at an indoor public range, that had the cables with clips to hang paper targets. I would load full power H110 under a 180,, IIRC like 28 grs ? was awsome,, Range was dimly lit, setting that off not only lit up the place, everyone else's paper targets in the lanes next to me would blow sideways. Dang,, now you guys got me aching for a new S&W model 69 as a hiking gun and I JUST found one of my grail guns,, a 2.5" 386
  11. While I cant speak for how it works. This statement is FALSE.. Liquid wrench is basically alcohol, unscented gasoline and propane propellant. Hornady 1 shot is vegetable oil based, Google the product then SDS... for safety data sheet. Will give you ingredients of most chemicals, You may have to look up the names, as often mfg's like to use big fancy words for simple ingredients, Saying that Dillon lube is lanolin and alcohol. which you can buy in bulk and mix, probably has some kinda soap in it as well to get things to mix,, but honestly a spray bottle is $15 and will last a gazzillion rounds. I am all for a bargain but some things just aint worth my time.
  12. Hey thanks Captain obvious. No it doesnt work, Blue, green, orings, tiny split washers,, de greased THEN blue green orings tiny split washers, Ive torqued snot out of them and nope they dont work, Absolute piece of garbage part. Only good thing is in general a FLGR is a solution to a nonexistent problem so when the end flys down range, your gun will still cycle.
  13. Should be able to fly with about 400 rounds. Seems I weighed 40 ammo once for this reason. When they ask about ammo immediately say, under 11lbs worth in factory boxes. ( save or scrounge empty boxes for this.) I have also shipped ammo to X girlfriends in various places. Hey I tell ya it pays to not burn bridges..
  14. Looks like Lucas is continuing to take commonly available petro chemcals, repackage and grossly inflate the price. The spray can Lucas gun cleaner gunscrubber, nonclorinated brake cleaner, electrical contact cleaner is all pretty much the same. Just looked up the MSDS,,, The ultrasonic gun cleaner is mineral spirits
