Re: New Dillon XL750

LT you are doing the right thing, I did the same when I bought my STAR press it changed my entire outlook on shooting, brass hoarding and quantity buying of components then went to casting and all up hill from there, my STAR and casting were the 2 biggest factors in my life of shooting after leaving...

Re: New Dillon XL750

The only primers we ever had any issues with were Remington they or the lot had small burrs on the cup edges causing mis feeds in the feeding, so we all stopped using them and no more problems

Once you go to a progressive you cant go back except for some rifle use. Nice to see your Dillion. You did good there.

Re: Need input

I did a match last Saturday with my new 8" 9mm AR and will say I had a ball noticing how fast it will get on targets, love shooting that a lot and just something new back to handguns in March after carbine next weekend in weather not bad. I help paste and score a lot and really noticed the smaller g...

Re: Need input

I am a long time ex Bullseye military shooter and have shot all kinds of matches for years since those days, if the enjoyment factor just to shoot counts I win every match! Much more fun now though, I WAS Expert in Bullseye, 3 IDPA classes and A in IPSC, AA 27 A in Reg Trap. I had my glory days. Now...

Re: Thinking About Getting Into Reloading, Any Suggestions?

So any new loaders on board yet? You will be glad you started I promise.
Just do it!
Same as for gun buying get something others also will want as you will not take a hit when you upgrade, cant beat Dillion these days for all the above.

Re: Thinking About Getting Into Reloading, Any Suggestions?

Love reloading and looking at the finished product, the mud on mud on more mud here had really hurt our shooting and matches especially if Sat's is cancelled again for more mud, it will be I am 99% sure. Primers are a very good investment to make, just watch the ads like I do also check Grab A Gun r...

Re: Thinking About Getting Into Reloading, Any Suggestions?

Just depends on what volume you shoot or think you will, not being negative but 2000 9's a year to me would not justify loading and casting, not even counting the 45 acp, my favorite. Break that down to a month or less and you have an entirely different issue. Just depends on how much you wish to sh...

Re: About to do first match

Shotgun steel is my #1 fav match over all about the only one I am still competitive in, but healing from a broken shoulder here. Shoot and enjoy all you can, our steel used to draw more people than any other but our board of directors did not shoot it so now we cant

Re: About to do first match

There is no better practice than shooting a match: pistol, rifle or shotgun, they combine all the things practice does not, shoot all you can of them and see which ones you like the best. I have no idea of what public ranges are costing now to shoot at but look at that cost to stand and blast vs a m...

Re: About to do first match

The Duel matches we shot had falling and turning targets, movement, prone, standing, shoot up and down hills, they were the best, I do miss them. What a change we saw from Bullseye stand and shoot. Lots of longer shots as we were used to shooting 50 yds.
