  1. I think there may be other factors involved as well. For example, SS has a max weight of 43 ounces, where limited has no weight restriction. Also the holster position limitation is not present in Limited. I think these things also account for some of the difference.
  2. I agree with this. This is why I am working with my son to get ready for Steel Challenge first. The lack of movement in stages, no moving mag changes, and overall more simple operations make this seem like a good place for him to build his skills.
  3. It is possible it is happening in the crimp station as well. Can you tell where the the shavings are falling on the press? I use Blue Bullets, and teh only time I have had shavings is when I don't get the bullte lined up well going into the seating station with all other stations properly adjusted.
  4. Do sll the bullets have the same diameter, i.e. .355, .356,? etc? It sounds like you might need to bell the case a bit more, or possibly the bullet seater does not have a seating stem that fits the profile of the bullets. Can you see where the coating is missing on the bullet?
  5. I have been working on a 22/45 for steel, and with the Volquartsen kit and Tandemkross Victory trigger mine breaks at 2 pounds. It feels pretty comfortable to me.
  6. As has been said, plunk them in your barrel and see if you are having an OAL issue. If that doesn't fix it give the Lee U die a try. I have not had a single round not plunk since switching to the U die.
  7. How would you go about consolidating the peak times in this division? For example, there is an 8 second difference between peak times in SS and Limited with all stages combined. It seems that someone who shoots low C in SS would be at a pretty big disadvantage to someone who shoots high C in Limited. I know that there is probably not much difference with those shooters in M or GM, but to the everyday shooter who is just average it seems like it could hurt.

    I use Bladetech, but the RHT look nice as well. You probably won't go wrong with either.
  9. I am looking at doing a single-stack 9mm now. It makes a bit more sense now that I have heard what others say.
  10. Thanks for all of the advice. I really appreciate it.
  11. I have seen OAL cause finicky feeding before. I try to run about as long as possible because, for me, it keeps feeding issues under control. That being said, I have had bullet profiles that required me to load pretty short, particularly in 147gr loads. I have experienced similar malfunctions to yours when I went too short. As mentioned above, you may want to try going a bit longer and see if that gets it fixed.
  12. I am shooting a G34 in production. I have a .22 that I plan on shooting as well.
  13. Awesome advice so far. I had not really considered that there was not an advantage to the 2011 in this case. Now I am going to have to look at the 9mm 1911 route.
  14. I guess I should have included that I understand about the uncompetitive part of needing more than 11 rounds. I was mainly looking for why the single-stack might be more desirable than the 2011 style. The CZs just don't seem to interest me too much. That is a good deal on the DW in that ad.
  15. What made you go with the single-stack? This would be mainly a SC gun.
