I just got back my IPSC open gun with a 4port comp. It got the slide lightened and hardchromed. It is pretty to say the least. I sent it out with my plate loads and a 9lb spring. I hoped that the lighter slide would help functioning with the plate loads(88gr jhp at 1250)but i am having more FTF. I then tried my experiment 165PF loads that are running 160pf(I know, I will bump up the powder on the next batch)
and the gun perks with the 9lb spring, just dumping out the brass about 2ft from the gun in a pile. I of course am estatic about this, but Am stumped about the dawgone plate loads. I guess I am going to go up in bullet weight, probably 115s, and or pumping up the velocity on the 88s. Anything else I can try? Mainspring is 19lb brown, FP stop is beveled at bottom, gun is reliable to a fault with good ammo, and I case gauge all my rounds. Appreciate your help in advance.
front sight is good, front sight is good!
