  1. I ran about that exact same load (maybe a tenth different) in my vp9, and I believe my oal was 1.075, maybe 080. As for changing the load, if you were to compete with it, you'd want your load to be as close as you can to major, with a small buffer. But if you don't plan on competing, I'd say just find a load that works, and let her eat
  2. I hope that means I'll finally get the firing pin stop I ordered like 8 months ago. I've emailed them so many times, they've all been ignored. I think if I did get it, if just chuck it in the trash now.
  3. I don't think it's dumb. But my open gun is 9x25 Dillon. Which was only used for like 2 years, 30 some odd years ago, then died. Sure, it's loud, it's odd,etc. But I don't care. I just tell ro's that they should probably double up on ear pro. Run what you got.
  4. I believe cha-lee(Charlie perez) did one in an atlas Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  5. Do they actually SELL at that price, or is it just listed? Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  6. I don't know what your talking about. Last primers I saw were large rifle magnum match. Little much for a dab of autocomp. Great for 100 gains rl33 tho. I bought the last brick. I haven't seen any of anything. The federals SHOULD be fine. It's what I used. Give them a test. Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  7. I would say start casting too, but I know good lead is getting harder to find, and more expensive. I've got a powdercoated cast load that makes major in 9. But for now I pretty much just shoot cast and save my jacketed bullets for my open gun since I don't have a suitable mold for it Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  8. Shoot less, but make them count more. Don't rush out and buy stores entire stock, you should have already had at least something stocked up. Panic buying is a self feeding spiral. Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  9. I'm with you on finishes. I saw a duplex stainless/dlc with the neo chrome on the controls. And as much as I hate that neo chrome, this one looked dang sexy. Either that or a red, white, blue theme. Or I might just get the whole darned thing covered in TiN. Would be hard not to laugh every time I unholstered Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  10. Yeah I've tuned my mags. My issue is once I've run about 50 rounds through it from clean, I get rounds not going all the way into battery. Can't really put a heavier spring in, since I already might be to lighten it to get it tuned properly (still get a little muzzle dip), and I don't want to push the shoulder of the case too far back, because then I get head separation. This next batch of ammo I seated the bullets a bit deeper and crimped a tiny bit more. Just not entirely sure what is causing them to not fully chamber. Usually just a slight bump on the back of the slide does it. I'm hoping t
  11. I built this, based on a rock island 10mm double stack. It's in 9x25 Dillon now, and still in progress, need a racker put in and maybe slide cuts. She's got her fair share of feeding problems I'm still trying to sort out. Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  12. I usually load them to 1.125. They do have a different profile that makes them need to be seated shorter Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  13. Gotcha. I misunderstood. Carry on Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  14. Well... You changed two things at the same time. Seat back to your short load, load a dummy or a few, and see if you get a better passing percentage. It could be just the profile of the blue bullet needs a deeper seating depth. Oal really only matters for getting things to fit a certain space like a magazine. Once they're in the barrel, the limiting dimension is CBTO (case/cartridge base to ogive) or, from the base, to where the bullet contacts the rifling. Bullets can be the same length but have a different profile, even if they look the same, and need different seating depths to clear. Thi
  15. I agree. Im tending to lean towards the primers causing the issue. Switching to a softer primer could help. But could be because firing pins were changed, springs changed, etc. Longer firing pin or stronger spring could help, but could also lead to pierced primers too if they're not the cause. Being as it was modified it's hard to say. Just looked at a few Wilson kits, and the competition kit comes with 12 and 13lb hammer springs, while the duty kit (that claims to ignite MOST primers,100% the time... Seems contradictory...) Comes with 14 and 15#, while the factory is 20. My guess is that's
