Re: Help with short stroke...

I like to break in with cheap 125 gr - 150gr...what ever i can get my hands on. I have a bunch of Remington and Freedom Arms I use for this purpose. After 50 or so factory rounds, I switch over to my handloads.

Re: Help with short stroke...

I like to break in with a fairly wet BCG. This does not go well with a suppressor, but that isn't necessary for break in.

Re: Help with short stroke...

Lube and a couple hundred more rounds? Sounds like it needs a good break-in.

Re: Wolf Small Rifle Magnum Primers were the only ones I could get. How do i adjust my loads?

They'll be fine. If you have a proven load you use, back down a half grain and load up a ladder for verification. If you are starting from a published load, start a little lower, then work up as normal. Most of the difference in small rifle magnum primers is in cup thickness rather than burn.

Re: Newbie barrel threading question

Mostly alignment...weight...changes to barrel harmonics...another set of threads to come loose...where would you like me to stop?

Re: Newbie barrel threading question

Thread pattern isn't important, bore size is. You need a .308 muzzle device threaded to match your barrels thread pattern. I would not use an adapter.

Re: Newbie barrel threading question

As long as your muzzle device has a hole larger than .308 for the bullet to pass through, you are fine.

Re: Bolt group

How far up does the buffer retainer stick up into the end on the tube...compared to the lower that works?

Re: Bolt group

ok, sounds like a bad BCG...does the groove on the bottom of the BCG run the full length, or did it get "short machined"?
