  1. Legal stages for classification. Mostly searching for some rebuttal if questioned about the safety. My only response so far has been that thousands of matches are shot each year at these distances. Secondly, distance is only one of many factors that can contribute to a richochet. Target quality and bullet type are factors as well. I have been tapped by some fragments when targets are out to 15-20 yards and beyond. Does anyone have a trick to help angle a target down slightly if your targets are the "hanging type" from a bracket on top of the 2x4?
  2. Sarge, You are correct. There are a few stages with 21' or 7 yard shots as well as a few 24' or 8 yard shots. No option to move them and still be an official stage for score.
  3. Our club has started shooting steel challenge recently and a few questions have come up about the very close shots that are closer than 10 yards, especially in centerfire. Has anyone ever had any issues with those close plates within 10 yards? I have never seen any concerns talked about on this forum. And is there any special setup tricks to eliminate even the possibility of any ricochet?
  4. Great info so far. Many of you have confirmed what I worried about with an 8 being too large. I saw where Atlas is exploring the Holosun sight. It looks very large. The thought of the 65 MOA circle surrounding a 2 MOA dot sounds like it might be great for instant pickup of many targets out to a certain distance.
  5. Been shooting DPP 2.5 on open gun for about 1 year and have trouble with locating dot. Have a 6 MOA RTS 2 on a CO gun and do better picking up the dot on it. Would like to try RTS2 in 8 MOA or 10 MOA. Are these too big for Open guns? Thank you!
  6. I have been seeing where several like the Leupold Delta Point Pro because of the brightness in both 2.5 and 7.5. AzShooter, are you using the C-more on railway with 12 MOA dot on both rifle and pistol? I wouldn't think the weight of either a C-more railway or smaller RTS2 or Leupold Delta Point Pro would matter much on rifle or pistol.
  7. I have a 4.5" Volquartsen pistol on order. Looking for Red Dot suggestions or comments on any of the following: Leupold Delta Point Pro 2.5 MOA dot C-More RTS2 with 8-10 MOA dot C-More Railway with 8-10 MOA dot Also have a Volquartsen Ultralite rifle on order. Looking for Red Dot suggestions or comments on any of the following: Leupold Delta Point Pro 2.5 MOA dot C-More RTS2 with 8-10 MOA dot C-More Railway with 8-10 MOA dot In USPSA I shoot a Leupold Delta Point Pro 2.5 MOA on my Atlas Open gun and a C-More RTS2 with 6 MOA on my Carry Optics gun so I am familiar with each. However, Steel Challenge is new to me and not sure what approach to take. Any advice is greatly appreciated.
  8. Thank you all for the info. This gives me some ideas on where to begin with ammo.
  9. Wondering what types of ammo people are having good accuracy and reliability with in Volquartsen Scorpions and Volquartsen Ultralight Rifles? Thank you!
  10. Looking at a 4.5" Volquartsen for Steel Challenge Open Division. I shoot 2011 style guns in USPSA and IDPA and love the feel of the grip. However, I have shot many Ruger's in the past and thought the grips always felt so comfortable. I know it comes down to preference. Wondering how many others prefer the Mark III or Mark IV grip over the 1911 style that Volquartsen offers. thank you!!
  11. curious as to what everyone recommends for shooting iron sights and open class. Is short barrel or long barrel the way to go. i like the volquartzens.
  12. Thanks to everyone for the information. I was already leaning to the JP. Just looking for something different than my Rock River. Like most I like a variety of toys to play with. I have backups for all of my pistols so I thought I would do the same for PCC. I have seen the MBX and JP in action and both seem to run perfectly. However, like mentioned above, the JP has a solid reputation if ever sold. My problem is I tend to collect. Thank you!!
  13. Looking to pick-up a new PCC. Have narrowed it to 2 guns. The JP GMR-15 or the MBX Pro Series PCC. I currently have the Rock River 9mm Competition Rifle. Runs flawlessly. 2 years in and runs any ammo I have put in it and only 1 malfunction that was my fault early on because I didn't seat magazine completely. Looking for pros and cons with either purchase. With either purchase, are there any add-ons that anyone would suggest? thanks for any information.
  14. any rc car or airplane bobby shop. lowes has them as well.
  15. I've heard Silhouette is temperature sensitive. Does anyone vary their load with the changing seasons? Weather in East TN varies from an average of 30 degree days in the winter to 50 degree days in the spring. Summer is easily 80+ degree days and fall will average 40 degree days. As you can see a wide range. I'm loading 7.6 grains for a PF of 174 right now for summer shooting.
