I took second in the SSP Expert class, losing by a wide margin to the 1st place SSP Expert guy, who took 2nd overall in the match and is an M-class Open shooter. Scott Springer won the match and shot ESP Master, probably with an XD-M. I placed 11th of 48 overall. I earned 3 procedurals for mental errors, and one more that was a BS procedural (in my opinion), but I signed the sheet before they awarded it, and so it didn't stick to my score. Hey BigTaco, that means I encountered the "BS procedural pnealty" in IDPA, and it kind of chapped my heinie! I also made some mistakes from "playing IPSC style", by reloading while moving into "unknown" areas in a house clearing. Basically, I reloaded from slide lock while stepping forward, but the SO did explicitly tell me not to do that before the stage. I also double tapped the first target in a "one shot per" limited count stage, nice figure-8 holes but still an oops! I shot my M40A1 with a Dawson fiber optic front sight and PT rear sight. I used 170 gr LSWC bullets on 3.5 gr of Solo1000 powder, and it "match chrono'd" at a PF of 132. That was about 5 PF points lower than my results on my CED chrono. This load is a minor PF .40, and shoots softer than most 9mm. Accuracy is pretty good from my M40A1. My gun function was flawless. I had case gauged 250 rounds before the match, and culled out about 30 rounds that did not chamber in the very tight case gauge chamber. After the match I loaded up mags with these culled rounds and shot them machingegun style from the M40A1. Every dern one chambered and fired without a problem! Makes you both happy and irritated, at the same time! Go Steyr!
