Re: New to 300blackout world

Agb isn't needed with carbine gas 16 inch barrel. For building a pistol or rifle find a hand lapped barrel if best accuracy is wanted. My seekins 10.5 inch is very accurate,especially the second one. I have a 16 inch made by Montana rifle works from DCA before they went out of business. It is very a...

Re: 1680 & Shooters World Blackout - Ok for 150-200 FMJ and Cast Lead?

I use the noe 150gc powder coated a lot and found with 1680 and CFE blk to get good velocity and accuracy was to find out what COL got me around 10 thou off the lands. Then put in enough powder to get a little compression at that COL. My 10.5 inch seekins barrel takes 21.7 CFE blk seated at 2.130 wi...

Re: Anyone sized .310 123 gr gold dots down to .309 for 300 AAC?

This bullet didn't work well without sizing for me.
Probably will use the 150 grain gold dot instead and save the 123 gold dot for AK.

Re: Ammo for mini300/garand build

For 150 grain cast powder coated loads I use 17.3 grains 300-mp sparked by cci 450's.
Getting 2035 fps with my DCA 16 inch upper and 10 shot groups can be covered by a quarter at 50 yards.
This load is accurate in several 300blks that I've tried.

Re: Anyone sized .310 123 gr gold dots down to .309 for 300 AAC?

I like the 123 GD the most for my Ak-47.It loves them pushed hard with 1680.I had a .309 lee and polished it to .310 for using several different powder coated cast bullets in my blackouts.
I hope it will work so I can use the same bullet for both AK and AR.

I'm going to try them left .310 with mp-300.
I needed to turn the necks and seat them to 2.040 max col.

Re: Accuracy Woes

Without the can supers not...

Re: Lead rings? Here's why

I only do a few with rifles and check how far the throat has moved forward. You don't want to move it too far forward. Just enough to smooth out the sharp edge In front of the neck. Don't use bore-rider bullets. They don't work well for fire-lapping. The slower the better. Just enough to get out the...
