if it's not specifically excluded above, i'm considering it to be legal.

i was actually going to buy some pmc bronze to have something cheap for short range work to use instead of the xm193. $7/box is cheapest i've seen recently.

Yeah I got a few hundred of XM193 at 5.49 a box.

PMC is good stuff for plinking.

I'm just using Fed .223- that's what they had so that's what I'm shootin'. Hopefully, there won't be any long shots; I haven't re-zero'd with this stuff.

I check everything I shoot with a magnet before loading up. I found a unpainted round or two in federal walmart bulk packs before that picked up with a magnet.

Rifle ammo

Bottom line, folks, is that if a magnet will pick up the bullet, it cannot be used. The specifically mentioned ammo in the match flyer is prohibited regardless of the magnet test

I usually look for RO I know and have shot with when picking a squad, everytime I have shot with a younger RO I don't know I have not had as much fun-some guys are just to serious. You wanna throw out a squad we can all try and do it, best to pick a higher number like 3-4.

I wish there were a better list of rules etc. This is my first 3 gun event and I have no clue what to expect.

Slight thread drift. I need to buy some AR mag holders for a training class I am taking. I also eventually hope to shoot 3 gun. My question is, how many AR mag holders do you guys typically carry on you for IDPA and USPSA 3 gun matches? Is one enough or do you carry more? IDPA rules seem to suggest you can carry two at most.

In any case, any info you can provide is greatly appreciated.

Jim

I had two pistol mags, two AR mags and three 4rd shotshell caddies on my belt. I never reloaded my AR once though. I would just carry 1 mag, mostly just for handling a malfunction.
