Re: 300 Blackout Ammo Shortage

You guys need to come out of your basement for air, everything is sucked into the great black hole. Primers, powder, ammo and firearms. This started around 3 months ago and the riots ramped it up. If you are not set up for these shortages, suck it up and plan for the next one. This one is like noth...

Re: PSA FEDARM BULK AMMO DANGEROUS

[/quote] Being new to ARs I will ask. Could one have removed the buffer tube. [/quote]Yes... Welcome to the forum folks... I'm trying my best to not make a forward assist joke. ;) 300BLK Ammo is not forgiving at all. Depending on the powder, 2 - 4 tenths over can be catastrophic. (AA#9 is a good exa...

Re: LMT Enhanced carrier again - where to get Cam Pin ?

LOL!!! Yes, it is totally unnecessary, but it is almost identical to the one on the HK-416, so it has to be awesome. ;) https://external-content.duckduckgo.com/iu/?u=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.tigerland.co.jp%2Fupload%2Fsave_image%2F5634-1.jpg&f=1&nofb=1 Actually, my interest in the the heavy duty retainer is...

Re: Over-pressure only on 2nd and later rounds?

Deleted because bullet setback is clearly the cause.

Slight crimp would resolve the issue.

If you ever meet my Wife, please tell her that I can & do admit when I'm wrong.

Re: 300 BLK SBR - what is your zero?

As previously stated, determine the round that you intend to use. Unlike most other cartridges, 300 BLK has a HUGE swing in trajectories. Start with reading up on Point Blank Zero: https://www.everydaymarksman.co/marksmanship/point-blank-zero/ Here is a calc to help: http://www.shooterscalculator.co...

Re: Ammo shortage, part deux

"Buy it cheap and stack it deep!" Always a sound strategy... My ammo closet is likely worth more than my gun collection. With the exception of my newest 6.5 Grendel project, I have a RED LINE of 1K rounds that I won't dip into. As of right now, I'm good to continue shooting as normal. I do need to d...

Re: Best 1in 8" twist bullet weight for 200m accuracy

I've had tons of experience with a 1:8 twist GEN1 Noveske barrel. 220 SMKs (PN: 2240C) are sub MOA without any issue. https://media.mwstatic.com/product-images/src/primary/764/764137.jpg?imwidth=320 If you are really paranoid about the barrel twist, 200 grain Lapua Subsonic (PN:LU4PL7060) is incredi...

Re: Does Play between upper and lower and accuracy?

Whether the play is part of the issue will depend on how much slop and your shooting technique. 4" at 100 yards is terrible for supers, not so much for subs staring out. Hand loads or factory might change my mind. Before I would have done anything beyond checking barrel torque and sights, I would h...
