So does anyone have any experience with trying to shoot through the shield with a JHP?

Reloading 10mm ammo / Re: Free 10mm brass with purchase of 500 X-Treme bullets
« Last post by my_old_glock on January 18, 2018, 06:11:50 PM »
I submitted my rebate online on the X-Treme website right before Thanksgiving . Didn't get a response or confirmation, so I'm wondering if it will be honored.

That sucks. Maybe I won't buy any.

I can't wait 2+ months for the brass.

Handguns / Re: Charles Daly Hi-Power?

I believe they were FEG HiPower clones branded with a CD rollmark.

Sold pistols by all accounts just poor marketing

Or even better maybe they will announce a limited edition FDE or weird digital pattern color version of their new .380! Such a game changing release would surely send everyone at Shot Show into mass hysteria.

Nah that would be sig...they have a penchant for that madness.

I'd love to see sig release that 4.4" 10mm they said was coming back before the 5" model released. I would also like to see springfield release that xdm 10mm. I sure hope it has the mod 2 grips (without the gripzone banner) rather than the lego block grips the old one had. Never understood those, never will.

Reloading 10mm ammo / Re: Pass-Thru Sizing using LEE FCD
« Last post by sparkyv on January 18, 2018, 05:07:07 PM »
But, I bought the Lee so I can pass through size all my .45 ACP. I guess you can't use the 9mm FCD to do 9mm Luger since the 9mm case is very slightly tapered, but heard you could use the .380 ACP FCD to do them. I have not tried that yet.

I have used the 9mm Makarov FCD successfully on 9mm Luger cases.

  Seems kind of cool! I think Daly made some okay pieces long ago.

Gunsmithing / Re: Ruger SR1911 down-up grade
« Last post by Hamopr on January 18, 2018, 01:49:29 PM »
What recommendations does this learned group have for a new front sight? Will the MGW sight pusher work on Ruger’s Front sight?

I am 68, going on 69. Right now I can focus on the front sight and center it on a fuzzy rear sight. Target is slightly out of focus at 7 and 10 yards but good enough to group under 3 inches. At 25 yards the front sight pretty much hides the target.

I wonder if the lighter weight of these would cause them to veer of course more than standard weights?

Yes, they would. Bullet sideways motion (up, down, left, right) would take the same amount of force as it would to push it in free space.

African game hunters figured out long ago that big heavy solids are needed to punch through a body and keep going in a straight line.

10mm semi-auto handguns / Re: Upgraded my SR1911 this week
« Last post by sqlbullet on January 18, 2018, 10:31:18 AM »
In a properly set up "series 70" 1911 the sear spring is a big part of pull weight above about 4 lbs.  Going lighter makes a big difference.
