Re: 8.5 inch pistol Failure To Eject

Mine did the same thing when I first built it. The o-ring fixed it.

Re: Question for Glock guys

Good advice so far.
In addition to buffalo bore, check out Lehigh's extreme penetrator rounds.

Re: Typical 300 Blkout noob questions....

There are several different weights of buffers. "Standard" really depends on the type of AR you have.
Here's a good explanation of buffers and springs.

Re: Does muzzle brake Affect Accuracy ?

Anytime you add or subtract weight from the barrel, it can affect accuracy by changing the harmonics.

Re: Loading Long gun on a progressive

To achieve excellent consistency and some increase in speed, I use a Forster Co-Ax press. Snapping dies in and out is as fast as using a turrent and more repeatable. Plus multiple calibers (more than can fit a single turret head) can be set and snapped in and out at will. The floating die and shellh...

Re: Barnes TSX 180 gr sub loads

I've never used the barnes 180 in a blackout, only the 110. Using it other calibers, it has been my experience that barnes bullets like to be pushed fast. For example I've loaded 165/168 grain in my 30-06 and 130 grain in a 308 with outstanding results. I'd be shocked if a 180 expanded at all at BLK...

Next up for loading subs, assuming you have reloading manuals (most important) dies, trmmer, and other related equipment is a chronograph.

Best ammo deal I've ever seen

Not your typical ammo deal but read on. A Louisville KY church is sponsoring a "bullet buybackc program. $1/bullet no questions asked. 22 ammo is around 7 cents a round, some reloads even cheaper. We could make them think they had a smashing success, while we walk to the bank. http://citychurchinc.c...
