Springfield XD is solid. XD(M) is really nice.

I would elaborate.. but I really don't feel like it.

I recommend the XD or a 1911. Springfield, Sig, Taurus, and a few others all make 1911s in the price range you listed. Kimbers are really nice, but outside your price range.


I was looking at the Kimbers.

Perhaps a used one,

EDIT: Wow, I'm basically already sold on the Kimber 1911s. Now just need to find a used one...

@ Grammar Cops- "Perhaps a used one." or "Perhaps an used one." ???

I thought you were supposed to always use "an" in front of a vowel beginning word, but what if it sounds better to ignore this rule?

Kimbers are absolute win. Worth every penny. They are my preferred rental at the range. Find a good dealer like Impact guns and you can get one for just over $700, or even $699 in a few cases. I am SERIOUSLY considering one as my next purchase. The only 1911s I can even consider better are the Wilson Combat or Guncrafters Inc. or other Semi-custom $2000+ rigs. I shoot 1911s almost religiously. Springfields are good, Taurus makes a pretty nice one, Colts and others are good. But penny for penny, Kimbers are some of the smoothest, most accurate, reliable pistols you can get. Go for it. Do it. Do. It.

And congrats MedicOni.

Considering getting into some low volume accuracy reloading with my next rifle. Anyone have experience with these two basic, inexpensive presses?

Under $30 each, I could even get both if I wanted. And plenty of Dies, brass, powders, bullets, and primers. :dodgy:

Time to roll my own.



You will not regret buying this one...

It has just about every thing but the die for your cartridge....

Also order this book.... http://www.fmreloading.com/cgi-bin/miva?Me...gory_Code=Books

Read the section on OAL, freebore, and accuracy...

Hmmm, Pick up a digital scale with that and I might be a happy camper. (+$100 to cost of next rifle setup)

The mechanical scale that comes with the kit is more than accurate enough. Just zero the scale every session. I get accuracy so good that if I don't hit a quarter at 100yds, it's operational error not reload error.

I'm thinking a 700SPS Tactical in .308, a small reloading set-up, a good mount, good rings, and buy an acceptable scope to hold me until I can buy a good set of optics.

Sounds like a good plan, PW. Remi 7 in .308 has served me very well for many years of varied use, and I just started reloading this year. T-H had some good lines on excellent reasonable optics, so I'd see what he recommended.

A spare in my SAR pack. A lot of times I have the 10mm on my belt for SAR, but that would be a nice backup... Or just as a Jeep gun when I pick up my next Jeep
