Calls Shots

Calls Shots (8/11)

  1. I know a Glock mag with a base pad to 140mm will hold 23 rounds + 1 in the chamber. Not sure about other combinations.
  2. I ordered a barrel listed as in stock and had it within a couple of weeks.
  3. Never heard of shims for barrel extension. If it were mine I would just clean the threads up really well and put it back together with red loctite or rockset and call it good. Of course my free advice is just that and to be followed at your own risk.
  4. Does the bolt lock back at the bolt face or front of the carrier? Put 1 round in the mag and make sure the bolt catch is engaging the bolt face back and not the carrier.
  5. I’d say you need to post a picture as I’m not sure what a “domed” primer looks like.
  6. I needed a few and ordered them direct from RCBS a month ago and had them in a few days.
  7. I’m a couple days late here but I run 9.0 gr with 115s to make 172. I suspect lots may vary.

    I’ve never had a problem selling them as scrap locally. I take them in gallon ziplock bags typically. There are a couple of grades of scrap brass and they give the lower grade for cartridge brass.
  9. If you made a Brekke style from aluminum just thread it like a normal comp and also the barrel so the barrel heating up wouldn’t be a problem.
  10. Never used a rod, but always install them and sight through the bore to ensure alignment the first time on any gun. If it is off it will be noticeable. I don’t care if it’s factory threaded, my own thread job, or done by someone else.
  11. You should be safe using 150 gr bullet data to start with. Just start low and work up. I loaded some 147 fmj a while ago and that’s what I did. I’ll check to see what I came up with when I get back to the loading room.
  12. Ok. Need to try some of that
  13. I guess I got lucky with the swage it adapter. I have an older one from when they first came out and have prepped 8-10k pieces of brass with it with no issues. I set up a separate tool head for the 650 for brass prep. When loading it’s pretty rare that a primer doesn’t seat correctly. I also have a Super Swage but haven’t used it in quite a few years but don’t see any difference in the results.
  14. You can either buy the adjustable charge bar or use something like nail polish to build up the inside of the hole to reduce volume. I hate to give advice not knowing how it works in your gun but you may be just fine without changing anything. A trip to the chrono would be a good idea.
