Reloading 10mm ammo / 180 grain Longshot loads
« on: January 05, 2018, 01:13:48 PM »
I'm working with Longshot and 180 grain Xtreme heavy plated bullets. There is so much experience here. What is the powder range for this powder and bullet weight? I am loading at 1.255? Thanks for all the awesome advice!

Reloading 10mm ammo / Thinking of buying a Lee Pro 1000

Considering getting into reloading. Done some research and this thing if tuned correctly should be able to produce a high volume of 10mm at a reasonable cost. Have any of you used this press? Pros and cons please.

10mm semi-auto handguns / Ruger SR1911 10mm
« on: October 01, 2017, 02:11:59 PM »
I love this gun. 1st time at the range it stove piped a few LAX reloads and wouldn't lock the slide back often. 2nd time it didn't fail whatsoever but wouldn't lock the slide back every time. I figured this gun isn't that broken in and I'm shooting light-mid power loads through it. My dad gave me a box of the Sig 10mm that he's had for about 2 years (I feel it was much stronger then than what they produce now). Not one failure of any kind, slide locked back EVERY time at the end of the mag.
This gun is very accurate. I of course shot better with it vs my Glock 19 but it also out shot my Ed Brown Special Forces which isn't easy to do. Trigger is quite nice although not the very best. Fit and finish are great. Looks very elegant. Sights are adjustable. Have your sights adjusted, do your part and you will not miss. Best 800 dollar gun I own. In my top 4 guns for sure. I believe its my most accurate out of all of them.

Laxammo has a free shipping sale if you spend 199 or more. I just stocked up on some 10mm and a few others. ;)

Handguns / Ruger American

I rented one of these and liked it quite a bit. Do any of you own one and what are your thoughts?They're over built like many Ruger products. Would love a 10mm version.

Actually have some spare money laying around for once. I'm considering the vortex products. Anyone have experience with these? Which product do you feel is superior?

Just some random video I stumbled upon. Was interesting.

Gunsmithing / Gun Kote on a Glock slide
« on: May 31, 2016, 12:44:55 PM »
I really love my Glock 40. Was thinking of doing olive drab on the slide just to give it a nice two tone look. I've used this product on a couple other firearms with good luck so far. I've read to professionally do it they need to be sand blasted and parkerized. I don't have a miniature factory in my garage so I've just sanded them and applied the product. With good luck. These were bad finishes that I was fixing and I wanted to redo. Now we all know the finish is perfect on a glock. I don't want to mare it up in anyway. Was just thinking to cover it in green is all. What do you guys think? Bad idea or will it just help a sweet looking gun look even better?

Reloading 10mm ammo / Wanting to get started in the reloading world
« on: March 07, 2016, 12:56:59 PM »
So I just bought a house finally and have space now. I'd really like to start loading some 10mm. Anyone have recommendations for a basic and inexspensive loading setup. I haven't ever done this and would love to learn.

10mm semi-auto handguns / Night sight options for the Elite Match
« on: February 05, 2016, 01:50:50 PM »
My front sight just popped off yesterday at the range. Luckily I found it after about ten minutes. Does anyone make night sights for these? I'll probably just lock tite it down but I'd love to have a tritium front sight post.

Handguns / Glock 19 or 23
« on: October 22, 2015, 05:43:50 PM »
So, it's almost time to go buy another gun just 'cuz. I was thinking a Glock 19 would be great to add to the collection and a good carry option. Would also fit and feed all my huge Glock 17 mags. Then there's the other side. The Glock 23. A great add in itself but it can also take a lonewolf conversion barrel and shoot 9mm. I own three .40's so this isn't crucial or anything.
Have you guys had 100% reliability from these conversions? Would love to hear positive and negative stories on this. Thank you all.

This is the first review I've seen of one of these. Seems very nice.

Gear/Equipment / Burris Fast fire 3
« on: August 10, 2015, 07:50:00 PM »
Anyone have any experience with this good or bad on their 10mm platform? Thinking of getting one maybe for the Glock 40 down the road. Had a bad time with my other pistol mounted red dot years back. A Cmore STS.

Factory Ammo / lax 124 grain 9mm
« on: July 27, 2015, 09:01:55 PM »
It's a new item in their catalogue. Rated at 1275. Seems to feel very hot. I have no chrono. We could have a good 9mm NATO option here.


This seems like a great deal to me. I'm broke at the moment, but I know you guys would love some full power 10mm at such a great price.
