  1. As a full time Frontier Cartridge competitor (in most every match I shoot) I say NO! Like it or not, there is still a part of this game that requires more detail to looking a certain way, promoting a certain image. We have categories like Classic Cowboy, B-Western and I would also put in that group the Black Powder categories. I see it no different than trying to allow adjustable sights in Classic Cowboy. Adjustable sights do not look the part. If you want to compete in a category that requires going "above and beyond" the standard, you have to do that to play. As mentioned above, there are a lot of categories you can shoot adjustable sights and use black powder.
  2. Best "bang for the buck": -Install a Volquartsen Target Hammer (approx $45) to improve trigger -Install a Volquartsen Extractor ($10) to improve reliability - very important!! -Install a Vortex Crossfire (or equivalent) Red Dot sight ($150) A cost effective, reliable, reasonably accurate, fun 10/22.
  3. I like the Remington STS or Nitro hulls, but they are hard to come by in my area, so I reload them multiple times. I mark the base for each reload. I inspect each hull before loading and get between 2 to 5 reloads. I don't clean the hulls between use, and have had no shucking problems.
  4. I use the Claybuster CB0175-12, 3/4oz wad published load data (link above in post #9) for my wife and son. Have tried both Red Dot and Clays data. Both worked great, but I'm using Red Dot since I have quite a bit. Red Dot is dirtier, but what does it matter for CAS. This summer my son actually ask me to bump up his load (minimum published Red Dot load). As he has gotten bigger, he how feels it is too light/wimpy.
  5. I like Titegroup for plated or jacketed. It seems to burn too hot for cast bullets, causing some problems. However, Universal works great for cast lead bullets. I stock both.
