Ya im doing the USAPL meet. Im not sure yet what im gonna total as im still figuring out my starting weights. My goal off the top of my head is a 385 sqt, 285 bench, and a 505 deadlift= 1175. This is +62 from my current meet PR, 1113.

Not trying to be a dick at all, but if you missed 275--even if it was just a fluke miss--then you might want to open a little lighter than 265. Based on your meet goals, it looks like you're opening higher on these lifts than you have to.

No dickishness taken kyle. Im always happy to hear what others have to say. My current thought process when picking openers right now is to choose something i have done in training before. Is there another way i should go about this then?

Usually you pick something you can hit for a triple any day of the week. That way there aren't any surprises come meet day.

This. A triple is also, for most of us, around 90-92%, so it gives you the flexibility to hit a near-max second attempt if you don't feel fantastic, or to get to 100%+ in a hurry. If you open at 255 on the bench, you can still very easily get to 285+ by a third attempt, and it just makes your opener a bit safer. Ultimately, your opener should be as easy as possible while still preparing you for your second attempt. Though I sometimes take this too far, at the last meet, I opened at a 6RM (446), a 4RM (276), and a 7RM (518), respectively.

There are also other factors to consider here. Like, I'm pretty sure USAPL gives a "start" command on their bench presses, which means you hang out, holding the bar, until someone tells you to begin your eccentric. If you don't like the bench, or you get a long pause, or something else happens, suddenly 265 can become a miss-able weight.

Ya im defiantly gonna lower my bench and most likely my squat openers after reading this. I dont want to go to the meet and not put up a number for one of the lifts. I'd be more pissed and disappointed about that than missing my 2nd or 3rd lift. Thank you guys for the advice. I appreciate it a lot.

and yes kyle there is a start command for the bench in USAPL meets.

Current Opens as they stand now:
Squat: 355
Bench: 255
Deadlift: 475

Yeah--in powerlifting, if this happens, then you "bomb out" (you're disqualified for not posting a total as a full-meet lifter). So, make absolutely sure you can nail your openers. What type of bar are you currently using for deadlifting?

I didnt know that you could be disqualified for this. Thanks again for the advice.

I currently am using a texas powerbar for everything. I do have access to eleiko bars, but i have never given them a try for deadlifting.

+1. I have also heard people say that your opener should be your "last warm-up"

Okay, that's good to hear. I know USAPL doesn't use a deadlift bar, and for some people, that can make the pull much harder. If you've been using a Texas power bar, you'll be fine.

A quick google search will get you tons of results. Otherwise, there are a couple in the dropbox.

If you go to the home page, click on powerlifting discussions and there is a thread at the top of the page. All of the info to access lifting programs is in that thread

What Grant said. You will have to install the program on your computer if you haven't already. Don't worry-- it is a small program and it won't affect anything. Just use the log in info from the thread and download what you want.
