I don't care for the parts combo myself. They've added nothing to the gun that you couldn't add yourself.

I've got the Pearce grips on mine. Difference is I cut off the finger groove crapola, making them like regular grips. A piece of TruGrip tape on the front strap and I called it good to go.

I've been using one for 3 years in Limited.

Dawson extensions + Para followers + Para springs = 21 rounds, but not THAT reloadable. So basically you start off with 21+1, then reload to 20 round...

They do split easier, much worse with a .40 than a .45.

I also find it takes more physical effort to load nickle than it does brass.

I still like the looks of nickle cases though. If I can get...

I've had a lot of luck with various skateboard and stair thread tapes, but TruGrip is far superior in "feel" than anything else. The next best thing is the stair thread tape that Ace Hardware has. ...

I've bought a couple of SDBs from e-bay in the past. Both were good deals and a few years later I sold them for what I paid for them.

What I can't get over is how many people are paying full...

You might have had better luck with a green or yellow insert. Red is awful for me, especially in low light.

The interesting thing is that water hardened bullets will eventually go back to their "natural hardness" over time. No idea how long that is, but might eventually find out.

If I was to find any ammo I reloaded during the 70's, there's no way I'd shoot it. That was my "load to the max and beyond" stage, also known as "being stupid". Loads where I had...

I wonder if the rounds sort of crimped themselves on the first try?

You've got to crimp to remove the flaring.

I'm hoping you are talking about you didn't use a FCD, as not sizing (or crimping...

Also remember that 90% of the badmouthing that goes on between fans of both sports doesn't exist once you get off the internet.

THIS discussion has been very well mannered though:)

He's talking about Univerals Clays, not plain old Clays. If it was plain old Clays, I'd guess he'd be posting about the KB he just had with that powder charge.

First start off with a EGW "U" die. Shouldn't have to worry about setback after that unless you buy into the "more crimp" theory. In reality, more crimp can easily result in lots of setback.

+1 on that.... I'd never, ever shoot someone else's reloads unless its with their gun.

It does sound like high primers. A good sign they shouldn't be selling ammo.
