After using CR-Speed holster for many years I have change to Ghost Armadini holster (model CZ SP01) and it’s because Sphinx 3000 fits perfectly. The Ghost holster is a safe and reliable holster and it fits almost all types of gun. I have modified it a little bit and changed the spring that holds the gun with a much heavier one, and that gives you a much safer holster without using the lock.
My belt is a CR-Speed belt and I choose it because of the good stability and stiffness. The magazine pouches is Sickinger and I have modified the first pouch and mixed Sickinger and CR-Speed.
The perfect load for Production Gun
I have been reloading since I was a little boy with my father’s Lee reloading machine but it was primary for Bulleyes shooting and “Terræn” shooting in 9mm and cal. 32. For some years ago I shot 38. super in Open Class and was reloading with great success with my Dillon Square Deal B, but the Springfield pistol was crap and didn’t work. Now I am making reloads for my Sphinx 3000, but only for competition.
I have been looking for info about “the perfect load” on the internet and asking fellow shooters at big competition, and now I have collected some info about 9mm ammunition for Production Class. The big question is; a heavy or a light bullet?
I have tried 145 grains bullet for some years ago but it never really worked for me – I didn’t like the recoil characteristics. I like a fast closing time and fast bullets.
The table below with reloading data comes from various shooters that shoot Production Class.
