Re: What should I load based on this data?

My home defense load with Barnes 110 & lil'gun is 20gr. I bias towards power for this load with adequate accuracy. If I can make a head shot at 7yd and chest shot at 50yd, I'm happy. My plinking/training load for for 125TNT & H110 is 18gr. This gives adequate performance for those tasks while being...

Re: 300 Blackout - A Tale of Ten Loads

As a long time (Old Dude) shooter and reloader, the 300 BLK changed a few things for me; A) SD doesn't really mean much in an AR platform 300BLK... it's more about accuracy at a given distance. The old bolt gun/singleshot rules around SD don't apply to near the degree they used to when I was loading...

Re: 300 BLK OUT QUESTION

I would suggest not getting a handguard longer than your barrel. Usually a handguard an inch or 2 shorter than the barrel is what I go for. Now that could change if you plan on having a "pinned" muzzle device, or if you plan to run a suppressor all the time and you want the can mostly hidden inside ...

Re: Bear Creek Uppers??

Well, weigh them and find out...you probably need at least an H2 buffer.

Re: Bear Creek Uppers??

Just bought one myself. 10.5 inch 300 blackout. Side charging. Tried 3 different brands of ammo (HSW 130 gr copper, Hornady 110 V-Max, Sig 120gr Copper Hunter) and 2 different lowers. Will not eject spent case and I have to brace the butt of the gun on the shooting table to force the bolt open and ...

Re: HUGE PROBLEM WITH BRASS IN MY RIFLE

I have a couple of chambers that have issues over 1.362 trim length. I trim all my brass to 1.358 initially, and retrim if they get over 1.362.

Re: Hodgdon Lil Gun

I have dropped Lil Gun as well, but for different reasons.
A) It generates more heat than any other powder I use. Noticeably hotter barrels and other parts.
B) Documented cases of instability (pressure spikes/valleys) at low temperatures - Below 30 degrees ambient temperature.
