1050 Modifications

For the most expensive and “Cadillac” press in Dillon’s lineup, you’d think it was pretty much perfect from the get go, right? Wrong. Just remember, if it ain’t broke, you can always make it better! Here’s a couple of good ones to take a look at – the improved primer catch, and the aluminum roller …

Why the Dillon Super 1050?

I finally bit the bullet (pun intended), and bought a Dillon Super 1050. Before I go walking you through the install, and a minor improvement or two, I thought I might go through my decision process – that is… why the Super 1050? And how might that apply to you?

DAA Mag Pouch followup

Well, better late than never? Since I first wrote about the DAA Race Master Magazine Pouch back in July, I’ve put a lot of mileage on three of them, including two major matches. I think I can pretty accurately describe for you my findings after using them for that period of time. And … they’re …

The M&P Project – Apex Tactical Hard Sear and Competition Sear Spring

Finally making it back to the M&P Project! If you recall, the first modification I made to my M&P9 was the Apex Tactical USB. The USB made a huge improvement to the stock trigger pull, but still left me with a relatively long reset. The next thing to try was Apex’s Hard Sear.

The DAA Race Master Pouch – a first look

Every once in a while, someone comes up with a better mousetrap. They get dissatisfied with the current market offerings for one reason or another, and they put on their thinking caps, and BAM!, you get something new and interesting to look at. Never being one to turn down a look at one of these …

The M&P Project – the Apex Tactical USB

What’s that old phrase? If something works, you can always make it better? In terms of first steps with the M&P Project, one of the products on the market I wanted to evaluate were the drop in parts offered by Apex Tactical. On the various forums, and in word of mouth, I’d heard a lot …

The M&P Project – first range report

This is the second in a series of posts evaluating the S&W M&P for use as a carry and competition gun. You might want to read my First Blush impressions first. There’s a blog category that captures the whole series, too. Of course, what’s the first thing anyone really wants to do with a new …

The M&P Project – First Blush

I finally get a chance to start writing about this! One of my rules of thumb for match prize tables is to always try to pick up something I can use, even if there are more valuable things sitting on the table when I get to it (I’ll write a post on prize tables, and …

C-More Care and Feeding – Fixing Wandering Windage

This is the 3rd and last article of the C-More Care and Feeding series. You might also like the first article on adjusting and zero’ing the scope, and the second article on the lens, diode, and battery/battery cover. This last one is somewhat controversial. User beware!
