I do a lot of 100 yard drills on mil-surp ammo so they're all loaded hot and pretty accurate to boot. Anything within 300 yards is just a matter of eyesight and easy prey haha.

 

DD quads are expensive, thats almost half an AK for just your rail but sometimes you just gotta have it right?

 

Gotta send some money my way man, I'm trying to squeeze money together for a S&W Range Officer... I can't compete without a 1911, I could care less for the hyper patriotism that follows the gun or it's service history... I flat out cannot compete in competitive pistol shooting without one... some of these guys can seriously do like 1-1.5MOA at 25 yards.. I'm lucky if I can hit a 6" plate in the same spot twice at 10 with a Springfield XD9.

 

The cable thing just pays for my expensive thai food habit LOL

 

 

 

 

 


Yea the DD's are expensive, but you can feel why when you hold it in your hand. They are the epitome of quality. I love the .308 just for its versatility. You can hot load them and they will rip your shoulder off or you can run them light and suppressed. The only other rounds I have more fun with is the .357/.44 mags, and for much of the same reasons.

 

Lol I'm waiting for you to get back to me on those cables I was asking about. I'd be happy to throw some your way!

 

The range officer is a quality 1911 at a great price IMO. I'm not an old school guy, I dont have any ties to the gun itself, but they are wonderful for carry arms. As a somewhat slender guy, they are thin enough for me to easy conceal. The other plus is they are just drop dead sexy. :P

Oh crap I missed that e-mail, I actually am in between cell phone contracts right now and my Asian parents hate when I make long distance calls lol, we gotta keep it to e-mail only!

 

Hmm I gotta go fondle a dude's rail now at the gun shop I see... so far the only rails I've used are midwest industries and they do the job but I see where there are machining marks and stuff... they seem like good buys for 150 though... DD's are at least twice that much.

 

Yeah I noticed that mil-surp .308 (German DAG) are some real elephant tacklers, but some of the shelf stuff is pretty managable on the recoil... I can see how .308 battle rifles can be either a battle rifle or a precision rifle just on ammo and trigger alone!

 

I shouldn't have posted in this thread, I'm getting the gun itch again real bad

Absolutly. Do you hand load at all? Thats where the fun really starts with the .308.

Yes I load my own 9mm, .45ACP and match grade .223. I feel like a scientist whenever I'm handloading haha.

 

For the most part for the trouble and time I still prefer to go mil-surp .308 although to be fair it's also because I don't know the loading data for any of the .30 caliber cartridges. Thanks for the order by the way... I'm like a couple hundred short of that Range Officer now :)

Changed scopes on my little 22LR target rifle.  I cheaped out and downgraded to a little Bushnell 10x fixed tactical elite scope.  Optically it's not as nice as the nightforce, leupold, or nikon I had, but it's still perfectly acceptable and very good for target shooting.  It's a heck of a lot better than the cheap SS scopes I tried (10x, 16x).  For 217$us I love it.

 

Went to the range today and zeroed it in.  Low 50's today, in MA in January.  Love this warm weather.

 

Once I got it zeroed, and started to bare down on it using the bipod off the bench I got 100yard 4shot avg group sizes of about 1.262, 1.119, and 0.5955 inches using federal bulk 22LR ammo.

I was thrilled with the 0.5955 inch 4 shot group!!  That works out to approx 0.569 MOA.

Just put a set of Talon Grips on my 5" M&P 9 Pro.  I'm liking them!

I shoot an XD9 competitively and not once have I thought about improving the ergos! Great work!

Not quite sure what you're saying here.  You've never thought about the ergos because they're GTG or you just never thought about doing something to them?

 

To me, the M&P has the best ergos of any of the full size polymer pistols.  I have big hands and I can't reach the magazine release on Glocks and, like many people, they point high for me.  XDs feel very top heavy to me and I don't like that you can't rack the slide without depressing the grip safety.

 

Honestly, I don't see adding grip tape as really doing anything to the ergonomics of the pistol.  This is a competition gun and I need to do whatever I can to hold on to it.  I'm not making a fundamental change to the pistol like a grip reduction or anything.  I wouldn't dream of putting these on a carry gun (even though I can't carry in my home state rolleyes.gif ), either.

Totally agree. Great round with lots of potential. With a ton of great loads commercially available (even some good competition grade ones), and a bajillion hand loading options... 

 

Eventually, I'll move away from Chicago, and can get back into long range/palma style shooting. 

 

Sigh.

I just meant that I've never thought of messing with the ergos... they're not exactly perfect but it shoots better than a Glock, due to the point of aim with the factory sights... they do point high for me too.

 

I normally rather slow with reloads... if you see me with that XD it's all the gun and not me. Something about that magazine well just nailed it for me. 

 

I oddly have the most trigger time with a Sig P226 yet it is not a gun I have ever owned. It's just the range rental pistol and I've probably put about 3k through it and it was the only gun I shot for months. I really ought to buy one but it's seriously the cost of a decent 1911 and I don't see it being any better than an FNP, USP (which are already expensive), XD, or Glock. Also the slide and frame can rust which is a no-no for carry pistols in hot weather, not that the county of Santa Clara will ever grant me a CCW or anything.

 

I kind of want an FNX now after the positive experience I had with the FNP, not to mention how super affordable it was for me. I'd have to do private transfer though since it's not on my state's OK-list due to the over 10 round capacity and lack of a magazine disconnect safety.
