  1. Did you figure anything out? I have a 525 and after 10k rounds+ im seeing it too. Or at least i never noticed it before shooting 115 blazers. I wanted to chime in because i have the prp extreme trigger. Which includes the lighter striker spring and lighter striker rebound spring since day 1. It was built and shipped from prp. Plus the 16# recoil spring. I shoot 147s with winchester primers, i was never really concerned about it honestly but now that im reloading everything is worth a look. I have pics ill try to post to confirm if we are seeing the same thing.
  2. I love my prp extreme. I bought the gun from them and they built everything. The light trigger is great but its everything else before, after and during the break is what makes it different. I shot a drop in kit on my buddies xdm and its definately different.
  3. My gallant 147s rn are i believe .657 loaded to 1.120. Bullet depth .283. Only did testing so far as i have 3,000 more on the way. But seemed fine with 3.1 3.2 3.3 grains of sport pistol. I asked for a measurement of the flat nose but never got it so went ahead with the semi short oal for xdm 5.25
  4. I was in your position a week ago. Keep it simple. Went with gallant 135s and 147s over sport pistol and vvn320 as a backup if sport pistol did anything weird. Loaded up 3 charges for each bullet weight and chronod them. Picked the weight that felt best and picked charge weight that made 135pf. Have 3,000 gallant rn 147s being delivered monday. I did not want reloading to interfere with training.
  5. Im not someone who just wants to hose. Most of our heat is in high cap divisions. And its pretty hard to compare plans and learn from them when you have a totally different stage plan. I didnt wanto use my dillon money to buy a limited gun. Carry optics is the logical resting place for someone shooting 9mm in my position.
  6. I shoot fenix training ammo 147g reman. For practice and matches. I like it a lot I bought some freedom 147g reman to test before i heard the horror stories. Only shot 100 but was amazed at how soft it was. Small sample size but they all went bang no problem.
  7. Im one of the new co guys. Im new and shot production with a 9mm for about 6 matches and then just wanted to run. But shooting limited minor was not something i wanted to do. So threw a dot on my plastic gun. Done. CO is crazy popular here like chuck and mcfoto said too so plenty of heat to crush me. Cant wait for my first co match.
  8. I had the same issue, and im a fabricator, but it was my thumb. Got tired of bleeding so added a piece of athletic tape to the grip itself to get me through. Eventually the grip tape broke in and doesnt happen anymore. I use pro grip and after a dryfire session i use a product called "working hands". That stuff is pretty impressive.
  9. Weird. I have the square spring mags is this just on the dimpled spring mags?
  10. I just checked. Ya im holding 22 rounds of 9mm. Its pretty tight. I took a file and put a pretty decent radius on all edges of the fallower. Test fit your fallower to base pad fit. It should slide in without any hangups.
  11. Just added these too. Believe it gave me 3 extra
  12. I have an xdm 525. And a buddy has an xdm 4.5. His blue bullets load will not chamber in my gun and they measure the same length as the fenix 147 re-man i use. The 5.25 seems to have a shorter throat as well. The ogive on the fenix is rather pointy so it shouldnt be an issue. I use fenix 147g re-man training ammo for my match ammo. I really like it. I order it by the 1,000. Its about $230 shipped i believe Edit. If u wanto pm me i can email u a picture of a fenix round vs. a blazer brass 124g if interested.
  13. Just made the switch myself. Went with vortex viper. Appeared to sit lower than the venom and maybe a taller window by looking on google. Its definately narrower though but hasnt bothered me at all. 6moa. Besides u cant beat $180 shipped on amazon. Ive seen them for 200 in the classifieds.
  14. Shot my first steel match in August. Later discovered uspsa. Never looked back. Still Unclassified and just switched to CO so will be a U for a while. Seem to be about low B class. Live fire practice 3 weekends a month~300rnds ea. 1 match a month. Dryfire 5x week mainly speed stuff and driving down par times. Live fire is 95% drills. Pretty much zero mini stages, theres too much going on for me to notice simple but costly mistakes.
