Your method is sound.  I don't have any experience with that bullet to be able to comment on how long it loads.  I'd back off as painter said (OAL 1.1) and work up your loads.

The bullet ogive shape really determines the OAL.  Wobbly has a nice illustration that shows how the shape of the bullet will impact the lands differently (in the sticky at the top of the reloading forum).  If the ogive is slender you will be able to load longer.

Cheers,

I picture would be helpful.  Blue or white scotchbrite can be helpful when removing powder blowby but I'm not sure what your dealing with.

Cheers,

In addition to the dialing in the shoulder height you will want to verify your crimp is proper.  Depending on what diameter your bullet is will factor in to how much crimp you need but 0.470 should get you close.

I ran 200gr SWC bullets in competition in my 97BD for years.  It's the only bullet I use in it.

If I were in the market for a new single stage, I'd jump all over this deal:

I have email notifications in to three online places that are connected to one of my local FFLs. Another local shop tried to tell me the MSRP went up and wanted to charge $1500 for a base model that they did have in stock nor could give a date as to when it would be in. They tried to convince me they had the best deal. Sounded pretty desperate. The other local place was honest and suggested I get with the places they deal with online to get email notice when they would be in stock again and they would gladly take the transfer no charge due to me being LE.

Yeah there is a shop in Jax that had a black S1 pistol instock for $1150, then about 2 weeks later had a grey and a black in stock and raised their prices to $1350.... Went the extra 8 miles down the road and just got the black one that was just under MSRP....

I understand the whole market pricing idea but... nearing double MSRP is kinda ridiculous...

Genius!  Worked like a charm.  Holy crap thank you.  I didn't have a punch that slim to accommodate the hole in the trigger guard, so I just flipped the drill bit around and used a rubber mallet.  Had some soft plastic to cushion the lower receiver in the vice. 

Thank you thank you :)


I was thinking about trying to loosen that screw just to see if it would come loose just out of curiosity.

I believe I'll just leave it alone.

Glad your's worked out for you.

I feel like throwing a party!  Been messing around with this for a few nights but I'm a total noob.  Along with what Trooper894 said about the soft heads, I think my 3mm allen was in rough shape to begin with. 

Just saw that CZ does have full trigger swaps /full lowers but they're like $250.  In case everything goes awry.

A real Hotrod you've got yourself
Not sure a 9mm (I don't do 40s) with an MSRP of $5,500.00 is in my near future   ;)
I do like the fixed Front Sight concept though
