  2. What did you do in the reloading room recently?

    Yesterday I loaded some test batch of 38 supercomp and today I went to the range to chrono. The pistol is a very lightly used (~1000 rounds?) custom 2011 that I bought over a year, almost 2 years ago and haven't shot more than a magazine through it since the day I bought it. It came with...

    It is some sort of bushing for small primers, they can be off center, or come loose, those federal non-toxic cases do that sometimes.

    I load JHP for competitive shooting through a compensated and ported barrel. A slower hotter powder is used to get the most gas to work the compensator. JHPs do not have any exposed lead like a FMJ does at the base, this keeps the barrel and compensator chambers cleaner and free from lead...

    I too have had the pleasure of case sorting by the decapping pin .. But I see the 9mm Norma as very different than the small primer 45: The Norma cases can't be decapped by normal means, by normal dies, and so they are no use to me and tossed aside. 45 small primer cases are actually useful...

    I bought the conversion barrel a couple of years back for only about $100, but before I did, I made sure the ammo and components were available. Advanced Tactical seems to be an official distributer of all things Armscor, at that time I was able to get factory ammo, new primed cases and...

    what happen to that ? [popcorn][pot][slap]

    I loaded up some 22 TCM 9R. 9.5g of Accurate's TCM powder sends a 39g bullet at 1900fps out of a G17 conversion barrel. Its only purpose is to produce smiles and giggles at the indoor range with the lights dimmed. This cartridge has pretty much no recoil, and all of the flash and noise...

    I don't see my procedure (or yours) as being complicated. There is more than one way to skin a cat. By the way, I've loaded 9k rounds this month and that leads to another topic. The recycling bin in my shop is overflowing with federal primer packaging.

    I'm cleaning some loaded cases, I thought I would snap a photo so I'll have it for the next time a new thread pops up with someone asking if it's safe to do this. I only have to run these about 15-20 minutes. This isn't always part of my reloading process, but I have a newly mixed up bottle...

    I sorted a bucket of practice / match take home brass and have 9mm running in the tumblers
  13. Dillon 650 vs 750

    The index arm spring (11) wears quickly or even breaks - about 10k rounds is probably the most I got out of one, under 1k for the least. The relationship of the Disc (15) and the index arm (6) wear and produce occasional and difficult to diagnose disc advancement. You can flip the disc every...
  14. Dillon 650 vs 750

    I do prefer the 750 primer system. Its not completely without its own unique problems though. There is no performance or reliability increase when going from a 650 to 750, arguably there is an extra safety measure though (650 has exposed primers in the carousel) Like already said, I would...

    What sort of malfunction? My 147g load at 130ish PF shoots fantastic, but us sometime too light to cycle a gun with a factory recoil spring. It really depends on the gun, some run on factory spring, some need a lighter spring. The malfunction encountered will be (weak) ejection of empty...

    7 divisions at a Glock match.... (Are there more available?) And people say USPSA is watered down with too many divisions
  17. What did you do in the reloading room recently?

    Works best on a Dillon progressive where primers are seated at the top of the handle stroke: When your bucket of 45 brass is about 50/50, you set your press up to load small primers. At the primer seating station you will feel no resistance, remove and set aside the large primer piece of...

    Look into the case.
  19. Reloading Questions : Fed primers, coated bullets smoke

    Bump that up to about 135 PF, or 1070-1090 FPS and I bet you a taco you will have better accuracy, and less/no smoke.
  20. 9mm 147gr loads with stock recoil spring

    I load 147s over 3.3 WST. Either blue bullets or ibejiheads. 1.13" These chrono at 130-135 in my 5" guns (glock sig, smith, sti ) My G34 gen4 came to me second hand with an aftermarket guide rod and spring that was too heavy to reliably cycle that load, the stock captured spring did work fine...
