  1. I had that rubber tipped overtravel screw in my Bill Davis PPc revolver. It was strange so I just made sure it was screwed in enough to not affect the trigger pul. I have very large hands and long fingers and stumbled on the "techniqe" (Described by the OP) myself when I first started shooting revolvers. I have never liked the 'Staging" way of shooting revolvers so while I could make it work I never used it. I shoot my revolvers using a smooth even pull and use the X frame Hogue grips on all my revolvers (including the 617) for propper trigger finger placement.
  2. It is about bullet and case friction. A 115 gr.bullet being shorter has less bullet seated in the case so less friction. A heavier bullet will have more since there is more bullet in the case. If you are using factory ammo that will be the only way to affect this, try a heavier bullet/load.
  3. When I got my MAX .40 I had full intentions on getting a set of Tripp mags but since the gun came with a few of the Wilson 47NX 10mm mags I figured I would test them out by using them to break in the pistol before match use. I ran quite a few rounds through the gun breaking it in and getting used to it and had zero problems with the mags so I just decided to order a few more (since I already had some) and use them figuring if I ended up having problems then I could go with the trips. Hd the mags fora few yesrs no and still have no issues.
  4. The Lee facotry crimp die is made to work on loaded ammo and would do the resizing you need and may or may not affect the bullet sizing. I typically dont use mine for loaded ammo but I do use it to size down my 9mm brass for my revolver since it sizes down further on the case than the Dillon dies odes and makes the ammo chamber better.
  5. I got that for mine and use a power screwdriver rather than a drill as they ar smaller and lighter than a drill.
  6. Two different clubs and ranges: Pima Pistol Club: https://pimapistolclub.com/ Southern Arizona Pratical Shooters at 3 point range (Tucson Rifle Club) : http://www.tucsonrifleclub.org/Tactical_Intro.shtml

    hogue grips

    +1 Just about all of my revolvers have the X frame Houge grip. I have larger hands and like how they feel. I had various types of grips but most end up feeling too thin and didn't fill out my grip. I put them on my competition revolvers and then just put them on most of my other revolvers (610, 625's etc...) even if they aren't for competition. Now when I pick up and shoot a revolver they feel exactly the same.
  8. Unfortunatley, there is not any one in SV that I could recommend, specifically for 2011's. SV is a small town and the gunsmiths that are here are more oriented towards general repair and rifles.
  9. Those loadbooks just complie data directly from other books. That data in particular is originally from Hornday, very distinctive how the data is displayed.
  10. I got my 650 back in 1995 and have been running it hard ever since, loaded countless amounts of ammo on it. I had a refurbed by Dillon a whike back and it is still going strong. I really like the rotary priming system, the one on my 550 is always a PITA. I guess I can see why Dillon made this change (simplicity and less customer issues) but I think it is step backwards.
  11. My general shooting load for CS is the same as it was when I loaded it as the original #2. 4.0 gr. behing a 124 gr. lead/coated bullet in 9mm is my standard shooting load. I cant tell you how many thousands of that load I have loaded and shot. It ill get you in the ball park and you can adjust from there.
  12. N320 & WST both fast burning so they shoot clean.
  13. https://www.speedshooter.com/product_detail.cfm?id=GG-GPRS&gogun-ar-15-polymer-gas-pedal I got a few of these one year at the Nationals. Put one on my 1522 and it didn't work out well for me due to my large hands.
  14. My son is up just north of Austin and they got hit by the weather about the same time so it was big.
