steel challenge?
« on: February 28, 2019, 02:33:19 PM »
So, what do folks think of using the 97 with soft target loads for steel challenge? May try it this weekend rather than 9mm. Would be great to hear anyones experience.

I've used my 97 be shooting our local steel challenge a few times and look forward to it this April. Bought it straight from CGW so can't comment on the stock model. Using S&B 230gr it was pure joy. Another shooter commented that I handled it well. Not really me, the recoil was so mild I was kind of speechless.

I did the pro package upgrade so it’s pretty slick. Hope to use it this weekend at a match. Will advise.

Seems to work w steel challenge - 4.0 clays and 185 swc. But the stock sights need to go, slow down target acquisition. Will try the cgw "over 40" sights.
