Would you rather set up your bench in a large uninsulated detached garage or small basement closet? Relevant context: -I live in the mid Atlantic so temps range from 0 - 100. However, I’m hearty...not too sensitive to hot and cold. -Basement area permits bench of only 40 inches wide by 30 inches deep. -Newby 650 reloader. -Not a huge volume shooter. Reloading mostly for PF and reliability. -I have children who crawl so I’m a little paranoid about lead safety. Buying bullets that are plated or coated. Would tumble outside in any event. -Not a ton of air circulation in basement. -Good neighborhood, so theft from garage isn’t much of a concern. -Anti-Gun neighborhood, so I’d feel some anxiety if kids are over to play or someone visits with garage door up. Opsec in basement would be much stronger. I’ve changed my mind a few times and am curious what you guys think from years of accumulated wisdom!
Would like input from anyone with confident expertise on how deep the swage rod should be on the 1050. I cut a few cases (these were purportedly surplus mil brass with crimped primer pockets but I've found most in this lot actually were not crimped...I deliberately bought them from on online vendor so I could use them to set up my swaging station properly. Oh well. The first few pics are with swage rod set a bit low, the last 2 are with it set a bit deeper. Which is correct/best, or what change do you recommend? <iframe width="480" height="360" src="http://s1182.photobucket.com/user/darkrayz1/embed/slideshow/"></iframe> Thanks Quirk
I'm asking for recommendations on setting up sights for a USPSA Production Division gun. Recently I had a setup for a dead-center hit at 20 yards, but this was hitting too low at the targets most frequently encountered, which seem to be within the 7- to 10-yard distance. The gun in question is a Glock G34, shooting a 147 grain CMJ bullet at about 866fps. I've used Taran Tactical and Dawson adjustable rear/fiber optic front sights, and have both on hand. So, when you're setting up your sights, at what distance do you want a perfect center-hit POI? At this point I'm thinking about setting up for a perfect center hit a 7- 10 yards, and accepting a slightly low hit at 20 yards. Thoughts and suggestions will be appreciated. I'm old enough to be slow, so I've GOT to be accurate. Chris
