Definitely agree. I've got one with over 50k rounds and my wife EMP that ate two in the first 6k as well as several others in between. As someone else suggested, pick up a spare and toss it in the...

No ammo issues for me even before I started reloading. For SD I've used HSTs, Hydrashocks, and all of their variants for over 10 years however I've experimented with 230gr Gold Dots and others and...

You should charge for this stuff.

I've hear that all the time too. Right up until I pull out the picture of the steel frame I cracked or the list of broken forged parts. I seem to break them all...

I was only getting about 6k rounds out of the dual spring assembly so I switched to a standard 22lbs spring. Both of my Champion have been great and my LW has over 60k rounds. I use Wilson 47Ds in...

Not sure I understand the "slide by itself left the factory" comment if you only have a Springfield frame but I'd consider $600 on the high side for a parts gun unless there has been work done to it....

Make sure it moves freely and does not rub the opening in the breech face. I assume the rounds with the light strike fired fine the 2nd time and the primers are correctly seated.

Champions aren't prone to light strikes so I'd start by making sure the firing pin isn't bent and the firing pin channel isn't clogged up. I assume you cleaned the gun thoroughly, checked to make...

I've been using the Wolff spring in all my 4" guns (Champions, Kimber Pro, LB Stinger) and typically get ~2000 rounds out of the spring and occasionally more as SRJim stated. Been using that spring...

Gotcha. Definitely agree that tweaking the sizing die, OAL and/or crimp just a little will probably get them all to drop in. I'd measure and compare the ones that work with the ones that fail the...

So, if I understand you, you made a new batch of rounds on a different press and they don't plunk. If that's the case, do the rounds on the new press have the same OAL and same crimp as the rounds...

Could just mean that the bushing is tight to the frame. If you remove the barrel is the bushing tight to the barrel? I believe that is why someone was asking about the measurements. Generally you...

The fit of the barrel in the bushing is what gives the gun a lot of its accuracy. If the new bushing was tight and wasn't a drop in, it should have improved the accuracy if the barrel was good. You...

Very accurate gun but it may require some tuning to be reliable. It took 800+ rounds for mine to feed consistently so have patience. Don't try to jam JHPs up the ramp until you run some FMJ rounds...

Mine were lasting about 6k even though SA quoted 10k+. After 2-3 replacements I found that the $8 22lbs Wilson, Wolff, or IMSI springs were more cost effective and were available everywhere.

Surprised it's that cheap. I've switched both of mine over to a standard $8 spring but the reason I switched years ago was because it was costing over $30 plus shipping.

Definitely good stuff. I've been running Dan's skylight on my 550s for more than a year and I'd definitely recommend it for folks needing illumination.

"Best" is going to be subjective. I have very good results from Pro Ears however the cheap Peltor Ultimate 10s do very well if you are not looking for electronic muffs.
