  1. Deals and steals

    But USPS leaving a note in my mailbox for me to go to the post office and pick them up
  2. Am I paranoid/overthinking this?

    False name? either on the facebook, or used at matches There is this one guy in the area who does basic firearms instruction / LTC class stuff, but also tries to sell himself as a higher tier instructor... He will occasionally do a USPSA or IDPA match using a false name, because if anyone...
  3. Good day to hit the Range

    If you were doing dot drills with an open gun, how would you account for the offset?

    Q did it first with this MINI FIX
  5. PRS Rimfire noob thread

    I do not have any experience with the Norma brand. "match" ammo is a lead bullet and the bullet and case have a lube applied. Paraffin, tallow, beeswax ... I forgot who uses what, but Eley (tenex, match, team, club, target) uses one type of lube on their line, and Lapua/ SK (center-x...

    Bluetooth primer
  7. 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.
  9. Good day to hit the Range

    Great conditions to chronograph winter loadings. Phone-camera captured the seasons blessing of my open gun
  10. What did you do in the reloading room recently?

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

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

    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]
  14. What did you do in the reloading room recently?

    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...
  15. Any upcoming RO courses nearby?

    There is a list of upcoming seminars here USPSA Open Seminars Listing - USPSA.ORG Steve Brown of BUAS was talking about hosting one in Malden soon. It hasn't been scheduled yet, and I don't know far ahead NROI needs to schedule these, so that may be well into next year if it does happen...

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

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

    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...
  19. USPSA training class any planned in central mass?

    The Hopkinton Heavy Hitters used to put on a 2 day class each year. It covered everything... Actually too much information for many. There was live fire drills on the first day after class time, and a 3 stage match on the second day. The class hasn't happened for a few years now because...
  20. Preferred 5.56 SBR length

    10.5, because it's a SHORT barreled rifle... A quality barrel and adjustable gas block will negate any reliability concerns vs 11.5 or 12.5. The flash, noise, or unpleasantness will be affected more by your choice of ammunition and muzzle device than that 2" of barrel.
