  1. It seems to me that the issue is the play between the plastic tabs on the Safety Prime itself and the plastic on the mount. It just doesn't allow for consistent primer placement in the primer cup.
  2. DRock, After working with this press for a few months, I'm in the same boat. I'd love it if there were a different priming system. I just can't make the Safety Prime hit the right spot consistently.
  3. CGR, I appreciate the info. I was already looking at doing some prep either on a different press or with different dies in the Lee, and it sounds like that may be the thing to do.
  4. I'm a novice reloader. Can you explain why the powder thru expander is unsat for coated bullets?
  5. Specifically, how it's held up if you've had yours for a while.
  6. I'm curious if anyone has any more recent updates on this press.
  7. I just bought a 6.5 Grendel rifle from a company called Atheris in VA. I was in the same boat (between an AR-10 platform and the Grendel), and the biggest thing that decided me was weight was also weight, particularly since I want to do some hunting with it.
  8. I don’t see a big benefit over the Legion. Pretty soon SIG is going to circle back around, “invent” the double action, and sell us rebranded 226s.
  9. This was at a match at Rockcastle in KY. And it ended up that I was really lucky in my unluckiness. Since the stage setup didn't allow you to have ammo on you during the crawl and it was a charity match not run under 3GN or UML rules, they just gave me a stage DQ and let me shoot the rest of the match. The Blade-Tech is fine for 99% of matches, but since 3-Gun sometimes requires some athletic events I've adopted the "better safe than sorry" approach.
  10. I had a stage DQ in my first multi-gun match after having an (empty) pistol pop out of my Blade-Tech after low crawling through a drain pipe. I'll never run a holster without active retention for 3-gun again.
  11. I put one on my ELS belt, and it's really only good to tighten up the last inch or so. You still have to be fairly careful about how you set it up on the inner belt. It ends up being a big improvement, though. That extra click or two of tightness makes it feel much more stable and takes away the worry of having your whole rig peel off.

    This is a great series of drills. While obviously the intent is to get the index as perfect as possible every time, how close do you consider to be "good enough?" I'm consistently indexing from the draw with the front sight partially obscured by one or the other side of the rear sight. It's close, but not right on.
  13. I ended up getting the NiB coating, and it looks fantastic. I'm hoping it holds up better than the Hard Chrome.
  14. This thread has some info that might help.
  15. Just wondering if you know what OAL your gun likes. I think there's some variance in offerings between the manufacturers you've listed.
