  1. Ideally once a week for practice, but that's not been happening lately. I usually take about 200 rounds and work on mini USPSA stages that force me to use a skill that I noticed was lacking in matches. Dry firing doesn't happen as much as it should, but it helps a lot.
  2. I am considering one of these for a new build. Anyone have experience? Thanks
  3. I've shot a few different makers of coated bullets and the coating varies in thickness on some of them. I have settled on the blues because they have a thick coating and shoot well out of my STI, PCC, and Zev Glock barrel; however, another one of my Glocks dislikes them. This is likely just a load development issue that i don't want to work out. I have used or seen black bullets, Acme, IbejiHeads, and SNS and they all seemed to have a good coating. The blues were just cheaper so thats what I ended up with.
  4. Unfortunately thats about as far from me in WV as you can possibly get. But i believe I have decided to save up and buy a 1050 when I finish with school this spring. Hopefully I have enough ammo loaded to make it until then.
  5. I have been using mine since July without issues so I'm interested to hear everyone's issues as well.
  6. This ended up being my fix. Now I can get 41-42 in the mag. Thanks everyone!
  7. I tried it on a clear ETS tube and it looks like the back of the follower is getting hung on the transition at the 35 round mark. Now to find a solution to get it to go on down reliably
  8. I bought the +10 with springs to add to a Glock 33 round magazine. So far I can only get 35 rounds into it after leaving it loaded for a week. I have filed the follower and bottom of the tube to make sure everything moves freely. To me the spring looks really long but I don’t want to cut it off. Any suggestions?
  9. I used 4.2 Titegroup and 180gr blue bullet and made 169PF out of a STI Edge. I wasnt' a huge fan of Titegroup and have since changed
  10. Again this is exactly what I did as well. You can also push/pull the big stick to see what fixes or causes the malfunctions to let you know how much to add where
  11. I had the exact same issue on a PSA lower. I added the Taccom feed ramp to my upper. I also made a pad of JB weld on the back of the magazines and sanded it so that the front to back wiggle was taken out. Since then I’ve had no issues with 33 and 43 round magazines.
  12. Thanks! The top link was very helpful.
  13. I have been reloading for the past couple years and shoot 10-15k/yr. I’m finally tired of spending more time fixing my press than loading. I am considering a Dillon, probably a 650. I was wondering where/who was the best to buy from? And everyone’s opinions about which press to get. I load 9mm (currently working on), 40SW (stock piled for next season), and the occasional 223 and 45acp.
  14. I have #3 and have been very happy with it unchanged out of the box. Probably can get a better price somewhere other than cabelas if your area is anything like mine.
  15. I’m thinking about adding some Taran Tactical baseplates to my STI 140mm magazines. Will the 7mm plates keep the magazines legal length or do I need shorter? Thanks in advance!
