  1. I would agree with the statement about the mobile app. The G2 was vastly superior. The Labradar mobile app sucks compared to the G2 Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk
  2. I would disagree on the G2 recommendation over the Labradar. I've owned both. Wound up selling the G2 and exclusively use the Labradar now. Ambient lighting DOES effect the G2 and it became very evident to me when doing load development for precision rifle. Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk
  3. I bought the M die. Thanks for the recommendations guy. Rt1500 is the route I'm gonna go Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk
  4. That's the info I'm looking for. Thanks! Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk
  5. Does anybody know if a .40 slide and barrel and mags are all that's needed? Will .40 mags fit in the X5 9mm grip? Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk
  6. I'm talking about no lube only during the loading process when the neck gets expanded slightly. Cases would be lubed during the decap / trim / full length size tool head. Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk
  7. Thanks guys. @12glocks the dillon resizing die in station 1 during reloading unscrewed 2 turns works well without lube? Really appreciate the helpful information here. Looks like I should go this route or M die. Dillon FL die unscrewed would also help verify the flash hole was clear no? Thanks again. Andrew Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk
  8. Thanks man. So you don't chamfer the mouth and you have no issues shaving bullets right? I am leaning the rt1500 route as it takes a lot of steps out of the process Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk
  9. Loading .223 for 3 gun and various shooting. Hand trimmed 1200 cases and wet tumbled with pins and then chamfered the mouth. I hated every minute of it. I am considering either a rt 1500 mounted on the brass prep head of my 650, or the giraud trimmer. Will the dillon trimmer produce a clean enough cut (after tumbling) to load without chamfering? Anybody got pics of a dillon trimmed and tumbled case mouth vs the giraud? Anybody got both and want to provide their take? Much appreciated. Andrew Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk
  10. Well this thread made me try another batch without pins..and another batch...and another batch. I guess I'm converted now. I'll be using 9mm of lemishine a squirt of Dawn and 1hr 45min on the tumbler. I agree with the above statement. 90% as clean as with pins. I can take that for pistol brass and it is less work.

  11. Hoping to see this myself. Tried a friends DVC Limited with Island barrel today for Major scoring and had nothing but feed problems every stage but one. If we dont see a x5 .40 kit soon I'm probably just going to buy a full size slide and barrel and some mags and extensions. I wonder if the problems stem from the factory untuned STI mags but I'm not very familiar with the 2011 platform. Owner said they need cleaned every single match or he has problems. If that's the case it's not the platform for me. Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk
  12. I have the FART and the FA media separator with lid. I drain most water off, dump brass into the seperator, spin for a minute, drain water, rinse, spin another 30 sec or so, then dump the brass on a towel, and drain the seperator with pins into a bucket with paint strainer. Pull the strainer out with the pins, rinse pins, and store in the strainer till next batch. Any pins that fell to the ground get picked up with the FA magnet. There's rinsing thrown in there as needed. Process really doesn't take long at all and I never got results I was happy with when not using pins. Only exception is I run .223 bras 2x. Once quickly with no pins before decap, size, trim, etc and then a final time with pins. Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk

    Haha. I'm new around here but I've seen some of those threads. Luckily my bank account won't allow me to make those decisions [emoji23] Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk

    I know what you're getting at, but I have been wanting to try a thumb rest for a while and didn't know there was one out there for the X5. Since I use my X5 for all my shooting and don't have several different multi-thousand dollar guns I can afford to spend $60 on my pistol and play around with it as I see fit.
