  1. I like my SP01, but I'm tempted to try an S2 for CO Just wondering what the more reasonable ($) options might be
  2. Just in the next issue of FS, or are they online before that?

    2.0 C with rmr cut

    I don't suppose S&W has any public plans to sell an optics ready 2.0?

    How slow is slow enough?

    If you're still having an issue with POI and POA being off, you have to fix that. You can't shoot a match like that. And if you're having malfunctions, take care of that as well. You need to have confidence in your gear. And I don't mean for this to sound like a dumb question, but do you know how to shoot a Texas star? That is, in what order to shoot the plates?

    How slow is slow enough?

    I shot my first USPSA match this year, so take this with a grain of salt. But after my first match, I had similar questions. My times were very slow, but I was very accurate. I wondered if I needed to make an effort to speed up or go faster. I'm still trying to get my head around some things, but I conceptualize it in this way; During a match, I don't think about speed (slowing down, speeding up, go fast on one stage, slow down and get my hits on another) My only thought is to shoot to an acceptable sight picture. That is, when the dot rises, I feel like I had an A or a close C. The movement, I leave to my subconscious. In practice, though...I'm always trying to find a way to get faster. Draw faster, get in and out of positions faster, transition faster, faster, sooner, quicker everything. Ultimately, I'd like to have two modes (I don't want to use the word speed) of running a stage. When I'm LITERALLY shooting, pulling the trigger, I want to shoot to an acceptable sight picture. Everything else, I want to do as quickly as I possibly can. When my dot lifts after the last shot on an array, I want to IMMEDIATELY hit the nitrous button. Not consciously/trying, but subconsciously because that's how I've been practicing. Hopefully that makes some sense and isn't bad advice.

    replacing 550c?

    With primer tubes full, and everything dialed in, I can easily load 200 rounds in 23-25 minutes on my 550C. And 300 or so is about as many as I'll load in one sitting. More than that, and either my mind starts to wander or a joint somewhere is hurting. If I could load 400-600 rounds in the same time, I'd seriously consider a 650 with bullet and case feeders. I'd love to try an automated 1050, but I just don't shoot enough to justify the cost.

    Anyone have a membership at PSTG?

    I'm surprised there hasn't been any discussion about it here

    replacing 550c?

    I'm considering the exact same thing myself I really like the 550, but I'd like to spend less time reloading...
  9. Just wondering who's tried Ben and Kim's new training forum? I don't completely understand what they're offering, so it'd be nice to hear from someone using the service.
  10. What type and size motor did you use? @Foxbat

    Good 124gr FMJ load?

    I've only loaded coated bullets in the year or so I've been reloading. But I just picked up a ton of 124gr FMJ bullets (Hornady and Win). I only have HP38 and Sport Pistol at the moment, but I'm not opposed to trying something new. And I'm due to order some more powder anyway. Oh, I'm shooting carry optics with a CZ Shadow.

    Steve Anderson drills?

    I just took his class, I'd give it a huge thumbs up!

    Is there any way to ID 230gr fmj bullets?

    Yeah, the .45s are the only thing not in factory cases. I weighed a few last night and they were all 230.2 to 230.8 grains.
  14. I ran across selling a closetful of reloading stuff, including a bunch of bullets. Everything is in cases, except for some .45 bullets. They're obviously 230gr fmj, but is there any point to trying to ID them? Or, for plinking and range use, just use generic load data?
  15. I've installed them in three Shadows, one being an S2. With the S2, the groups were slightly larger with the 10x. The most notable difference was the Accu bushing (SP01, not S2). Night and day.
