Re: My 300 Blackout Savage Striker build

I was hoping to be first but the wait for a barrel was a bitch. :mrgreen: Anyways, 10" Mcgowen. Haven't shot it yet. I am not sure if feeding from the mag is realistic as its 308 originally and require some aggressive tweaking and/or custom parts. One thought is to just make it single shot and use b...

Where to find a 10" Savage Barrel

I am looking for a barrel, ideally stainless, for a savage pistol. Does anybody know anywhere I could find a short one that's already threaded?

Re: Where to find cheap heavy bullets?

208 AMAXes seem to be the best bang for the buck.

Trouble Extracting in a Savage 10

I have a Savage model 10 that is having trouble extracting/ejecting 300 blk. The cases are not tight in the chamber, it just doesn't like flipping them out. If you yank it fast it'll work though. Is this an issue with the short case or do I just need to try a new extractor? Are there any updgraded e...

Re: Cleanest burning powder for SubSonic?

IMR 4227 works great for me. Not sure why it isn't mainstream.

I thought 6.8 was the #1 alternative cartridge right now. At least I read that on a 6.8 forum.

I don't have any idea. I presume 7.62x39 is because they have been making them so long, despite their drawbacks.

Re: When will 300 BLK become the second most popular AR cart

Only if it ever becomes widely adopted by the military and ammo is $300/case. I don''t like any of the other calibers either, but I would guess 5.45 and 7.62 probably outsell 300 blk outside of the silencer circle.
