    Blazer brass okay for 9 major?

    I will try it but I dont think it will matter. I just checked and it's pretty much there. Its like 1/64th of a turn off the shell plate.

    Blazer brass okay for 9 major?

    No it's something I learned from someone who has loaded for years on a dillon and has shot uspsa for 20+ yrs. Pretty sure he'd know. Its po probably less than .003 gap

    Thumb rest on open guns, experiences....

    I will say the thumb rest had changed my grip quite a bit from my aggressive thumbs forward/up grip but not for the worse that's for sure. Just different. I'd say try it and you may like it, you may not. Just go shoot 1000 rounds and you should get used to it.

    Blazer brass okay for 9 major?

    Did not get udie. Is that why? And my dillon die is backed off just a c hair from the shellplate. Like barely enough to fit a piece of paper between.

    Blazer brass okay for 9 major?

    So I just reloaded some 9 major and used blazer for 10 rounds and for some reason this is the only brass that I'm getting set back with when I chamber a round. I have my case mouth flare set super shallow with win and FC brass so it barely flares and I notice it flares the mouth more on blazer. But after the crimp it is about .001 larger at the mouth, putting me right about .3770. Just like any other brass I use but blazer sets back almost .004 which is unacceptable. Why is this you think?

    TTI +5/6 included springs too weak?

    Yes same experience and have seen the same thing at multiple matches. Get at Robin @ Taylor Freelance. Hes a really great guy.

    Glock 35 9mm open?

    Do not hesitate to run a Glock in Open. I couldnt be happier with my decision as I was looking at 2011 and cz as a possible open gun. I went with an open glock 17 using all Carver Custom parts, cmore and angle mount, 4 port comp---tried the sjc, Carver beat it by quite a bit in my opinion and the Carver wont crack, glock parts are cheap and and plentiful and if you like to shoot glocks already and dont have issues with that, you will enjoy it for sure. About a grand worth of parts gets you there with 1 +12 extension. Also mags and extensions have been absolutely reliable. I load all the way out to 1.1615 with Hs6 (usually 1.1550 but wanted to test it) @7.7 grains gives around 171 power factor. Have loaded silhouette as well at 7 gr. Same 171 power factor. Hs6 wins over the 2 but dont mind the silhouette for I may have to use it someday.

    Blazer brass okay for 9 major?

    So with sorting I have accumulate thousands of CBC, GFL, PMC, S&B, and some of that Browning stuff..wanna say probably not a great idea to load the Browning 9mm brass to major because that deer head logo is cut into the case head? How about the other brands named. None of it is stepped..threw all that stuff out.

    Blazer brass okay for 9 major?

    I do keep all my nato stuff and size and decap then swage primer pocket by hand. As for setback..that's interesting. I've never had an issue with setback at all not even .001 in after hand cycling 10 times or more. I am using dillon dies, my sizing die I do not touch the shell plate, it is backed off enough where a 3x5 card will fit in between the die and shell plate snugly. Neck tension is outstanding.

    Practice or Parts?

    Well.. that should be common sense. You shouldnt step into the ring without a reliable set up.

    Blazer brass okay for 9 major?

    I have a ton of brass and I seperate for consistency. Is blazer brass okay to use, I have a lot? And aside from stepped cases, I should be able to use almost any 9mm case that is brass correct?
