Thanks for sharing. Those are incredible shots. I attempted to view your website, but could not get into your photo listings. Could you please share with us your methods? Were they digital, or film? What were your shutter settings? I hope to attempt this when my 50's done via remote, but that's still a ways off. Thanks again! More! More! -gloxter

Clicking on the homepage pic of the Ram(?) led to the photos, nice pics, especially like the warbirds set.

I'm not familiar with the 500, is yours a stock model or has it beenchopped and ported, how long is the barrel?

It is probably stock.

3" barrel + 1" compensator


Beautiful photo sequence, I wonder where the projectile is on that last photo.

That's amazing! Did you intentionally shoot downward a little, or is that your flinch from anticipating the recoil?

Great job on the pictures!! Very nice.

You have some spectacular pictures on your website. Composition, clarity and "spirit" of the pictures are just great. I wish I could shoot pictures like that.

BTW, sorry I shooped around your website a little and saw some fresh photos of an exploded USP45. Do you mind telling the story?

double charge after messing with a new (jamming) dillon 500.

I wasnt paying attention and somehow slipped a double charge into a case.

Scared that crap out of me having my new gun explode in my face.

One of the guys at the indoor range I go to was shooting those. I was 7 ft behind him and it felt like a little earthquake going off in my head everytime he fired.

I cant believe the CorBon ammo he was shooting cost $44 for 12! No wonder he left early!

The Dillon 500, that's a progressive non-self indexing reloading setup, right?

Right.

The 650 and 1050 are the auto indexing ones with available poweder check station to make sure you don't have any grossly out of spec charges.
