  1. I have been using the same 550’s for years with no trouble . I have one in small primer and one large primers . As long as I blow them off once in a while they run great . I started shooting limited this year and was looking at adding a case feeder to my small primer 550 for my 40 because my need has increased . I don’t want to spend the money and buy a 650 and a case feeder for 1000 when I can spend 400 and keep loading . So anybody with a case feeder on a 550 let me n ow how you like it.
  2. I ask the same question not long ago . I settled on a 12 lb spring Get an 11, 12, and 13 and try each one and see what feels best for you .
  3. I need to get some work done on my back up gun. It’s a STI Edge . Any suggestions in the Nashville Area ?
  4. Ok thanks . I will give them a try
  5. Do you have any problems with it ?
  6. I bought a large lot of brass and it had a fair amount of nickel brass in it. Do you guys reload nickel cases?

    What kind of shoes do you wear and do you think it matters very much ?
  8. I had some cast bullets left from years past and I have been loading them and shot them at the local match last weekend. I had about 3000 on the shelf so I will run out in a month and or two. How do the coated bullets shoot compared to the lubed hard lead that I am used to. I will chryno them to make sure I get power factor of course .
  9. So I got a 12 and a 11 Wolff . I tested them both and they were right on. Tried both and went with the 11 variable . I Shot it in a match Saturday and it ran great . I went with the 11 because I am using reloads and they make major power but just at 170ish . That’s for the help
  10. So I was modifying my DAA mag pouches to bullets out . I dropped one of the screws that fastens it to the belt strap . For the life of me I can't find it . Does any body know what size it is/thread pitch . I think I am going to buy a box of them if I can figure it out.
  11. Thats what scares me . I have shot 1911s for years and never had an issue with the grip safety. Maybe because that’s what I carry and I am just really comfortable with them . I may take it out just for safety’s sake .
  12. Ok so I bought a used STI .40 Tactical for limited. It’s a nice gun . I tore it down to change springs and give it a good cleaning and oil change . It has a pinned grip safety. I have been shooting and it runs great and I understand the safety is pinned for compitention . My question is this pretty normal and how much does it actually help?
  13. I had a a similar problem when I started shooting match grade barrels years ago . My last die is always this factory crimp die from lee. https://ads.midwayusa.com/product/289675/lee-carbide-factory-crimp-die?utm_medium=shopping&utm_source=google&utm_campaign=Reloading+-+Dies+%26+Shellholders&utm_content=289675&cm_mmc=pf_ci_google-_-Reloading+-+Dies+%26+Shellholders-_-Lee-_-289675&gclid=Cj0KCQjwsZ3kBRCnARIsAIuAV_TEwkqp-3Lnvto72UNwPlqY1X8Vht_ekizsM_PUDm38sA9jeJ1-sM0aAqAkEALw_wcB . It it took care of my problem
  14. I put a roller handle on my 550 this weekend. Got it all tight and started loading . About every 100 rounds the handle works loose at the nut. I thought about drilling and pinning it but I thought I would see if anybody had any suggestions.
