    New guy!!

    welcome to the armory; it's a great hideout!
  2. R.J., i might be interested if you decide to sell your kkm standard & get the comp.
  3. after doing as COSteve suggested on the 10-2 on the barrel hood i have success. i was able to fire, 5 at a time, from a mag and a locked slide, 26 rounds. my only problem had been getting the first round from the mag and into the barrel, but i was able to do it five times today. now for more loading and hopefully repeated results. i will still be adding a g21 lci & parts.
  4. isn't speed(cyclically) produced(runs faster)w/less slide mass? i thought that's why all the games guys used releived slides. i have a few lwd slides and they're all cut out. i don't notice it while shooting and i bought them used so it wasn't my choice. to the OP: i bought a g21 upper complete for $285 on arf or gt. people: if you want something, just keep watching for it; with this economy circling the bowl, no telling what's liable to become available!
  5. sorry for the delay-you may have found an answer but hqave you checked kkm's page; they have 1911 barrels listed IIRC. i love my kkm conversion barrel.
  6. i've seen some for sale on various sale sections but can't tell why. some are reasonable. check arfcom & gt as well as here. i alsways check used first and only once got taken(in my mind)-all my conversion stuff came off various sale pages. btw, i passsed on the kkm compensated as i have a longslide i'm working on. i wanted a g20 for carry so i bought one. i'm very impressed w/kkm. besides COSteve uses them, i had a great conversation w/them on the phone before i bought my barrel(used).
  7. as COSteve suggested, i 'took the edge off' the top of the chamber between 10 & 2 and had zero failure to chamber from the mag, in my garage. i can't claim success yet-hoping for range time at lunch, but it sure seems possible. another reason i think i may be having failure to feed is the squared off nose 180s i'm shooting. can anyone recommend a different shaped 180 on 40/10, on the cheap side as i'm a first-class cheap bastid? tia michael
  8. Welcome SillyRabit! I second your getting a g21 but if you want to convert to 10mm w/it, get an lwd g20 slide. I'm having fits trying to get mine to load the first round from the mag! I already have an lwd longslide so I'm pretty much stuck as to making this work. I'll post if I'm successful!
  9. you'd be better off w/a g21 then get a conversion barrel-i have a kkm 6 inch. i'm having fits trying to make it run in an lwd 6 inch slide but it runs great in my stock slide. check out my whinings! if COSteve can do it i'll die trying!
  10. this is what i'm trying to do, conversion. it's highly possible. mine runs 100% consistantly-after the first round has been loaded. brainstorm: i was about to say it runs full mags but i'm working up loads so i only load 4 rounds at most. maybe it will load the first round consistantly if i fill the mag! oh joy! a project that won't cost money and waste my time while it's in transit. if i load some rounds today i could go to the range tomorrow. crap! i have to drive to austin in my e46 cabrio w/o the family maybe next week then.
  11. not to threadjack but both carcrazysammy & myself had experienced ftf w/the steel guide rod/wolf spring setup. 'sammy clued me in on this and i experienced it myself yesterday: gun runs fine w/stock spring setup but jams on initial loading(slingshot style) but only on first round; all others fed fine. i don't know if 'sammy's jammed on every round. i will try dropping the slide catch(although i hate to do it!)amd see if that ends the jams. is there are 'factory-style' heavier spring?
  12. OP, hit back, go down and check out any posts by TaosGlock=superb information and testing. i don't know if elevation plays a part(he's in the mountains, lucky bastid!)but just ask him. he seems like a great guy! i think he'll experiment for you when he has time.
  13. welcome! i'm right here w/you! new to the forum and the weapon but not to reloading. you're starting out better than me; i bought accurate #5(should have bought 9, or 7). you have blue dot-recommended. some have said magnum primers, others have said not necessary. i don't know; i have both but will hold off on that decision. what bullet weight? i have 180 since i load for .40. i also have power pistol powder but i heard it's better for lower weight bullets, which ones i don't know. please let me know if i may confuse you further! do you know there is a 10mm reloading forum on glocktalk? also the general reloading forum on ar15.com, which is where i heard about this one, maybe?
  14. Sonny, how is your brass after firing in a stock barrel? i almost ordered a kkm barrel until i read this post. the reason for ordering is to protect my brass for reloading. i currently shoot a g21 w/lwd & kkm 6 inch barrel. my brass is perfect but i have issues like carcrazysammy is having; in fact, i just pm'd him. i have lots of tests to perform but as i bought the barrel used i have no recourse, aside from carrying my stock g20(the reason i bought it!) tia michael
  15. thanks 'Shadow. i went and picked up a g20 on friday and think i'll try power pistol next, as i have a bunch of it from my .40 loadings. thank you for the short lesson in fast/slow powders, although i'm still pretty foggy. it seems that PP is the choice powder, from all my readings, and i'll move on from there. also, as i now own a standard, as opposed to, g21 w/6 inch kkm barrel & lwd slide(also 6 inch), i can now use the listed loads w/o having to allow for heavy slide/long barrel differences. i appreciate any help you all can offer.
  16. 10mm. 180 grain bullet. 5.8 is max w/hp38. i just got back and: all fired(cycled); primers look identical to me. due to short shooting time and crowded range i had to use existing targets at 25 yards. i saw more holes than i started with but groups-couldn't tell. usually when i shoot for load development i shoot at 7-10 yards; anyhting else and the DA will be speaking to me. that and my eyes aren't trustworthy! can you tell me why #7 or 9? i've never understood the faster/slower powder thing. i just open the manual match a bullet and powder and start at the beginning. thanks a lot for helping.
  17. 8.4 & 8.6 are under max but i only loaded 5 of each. i also have much experience unloading w/bullet puller! i'll post after shooting around 2pm central time. thank you for your help.
  18. thanks for replying oak'. i have a 6 inch barrel(kkm)/slide(lwd) and when i started loading for it w/hp38 i had to go to 6.2 & 6.4 to cycle the slide; max is 5.8. i loaded 8.8 & 9.4 of accurate for today's outing but i'm also going to load some 8.4 & 8.6 to start. this is new brass(starline). what do you think? this will be shot in the obvious progression. tia
  19. you could buy an aftermarket barrel but it will have a tighter(sometimes more finicky)chamber & better support, but you can shoot lead! personally, i've been shooting plated and i don't do lead except in a .45 1911.
  20. +1 for starline. when i start to load for a new caliber i try to start brand new if i can afford it. when i started on 10mm everyone told me good luck on brass but i lucked into(i guess)a new load from starline.
  21. berry's plated are all i've used for 5-6 years, as they're cheaper than ranier. i'll try something different when it's time to reorder-always looking for the better deal, but i'll miss those boxes!
  22. somewhere i read that accurate #5 was a do all powder so i bought some. since i had to go beyond the max to even cycle the slide(6 inch w/kkm barrel)when loading w/IIRC HP38 i was wondering if anyone could share re: a decent start load? i'll be stretching my lunch break to make it to the range. tia.
  23. what a wonderful place. never mind how i got here-no need to bash! i'm new to the '10' and am an avid reloader, when i have the time. since my 10 uses a 6 inch kkm barrel i'll be searching for non-stock reloading input; any & all advice is welcomed!
