Re: Twist rate and powder burn

I’m in the process of building a 300 blk “pdw” My question, if anyone can help, is regarding twist rate and powder burn. I’m by no means an expert but have done some research and hoping someone can shed some light I’m planning to run suppressed with subs as often as possible. But certainly may use ...

Re: 250 Hornady A Tip, or what happens when the bullet is longer than min COL?

What about IMR Red? I have used it with a Domolite special 265grn. As usual dellet interesting work. We should talk about front Ignition some time. Not a powder I’m familiar with. I know they are supposed to be close to the Dot powders, but not sure about density. So far #5 has been pretty good for...

Re: Go-To 300 Blackout Dies

Back in the early days of the cartridge😎 Forster sized cases the closest to SAAMI minimum, Redding was next. Your problem likely has less to do with the die than it does with what ever rifle the brass was fired in. In theory a small base die should never be needed. In reality generous cut chambers, ...

Re: Go-To 300 Blackout Dies

I don’t know if there is a direct correlation or not, but I have never stuck a case and don’t even own a stuck case removal tool. Loading for probably 40 years and forming plenty of wildcat rounds, including swaging bases. Never stuck a case, never used a spray on lube. http://yoursmiles.org/msmile/...

Re: Neck Tension for Semi Auto

It’s happening when I chamber the round. I extract very slowly so there isn’t additional pull on the bullet by the chamber. So basically it’s acting like an inertia puller. You have two choices, decrease the amount of hammer force, or increase the hold on the bullet. One will also effect accuracy, ...

Re: Neck Tension for Semi Auto

Just enough to keep the bullet from moving, either banging around in the magazine, or when chambering. In addition to the things Regaj mentioned, the three biggest issues with not being able to give a concrete number for this cartridge are extreme bullet weight variations, combine that with compres...

Re: Replicating the Barnes 110 gr. VOR-TX 300 Blackout Factory Load

Depends on your shooting style and what you are trying to do, A bolt action with an AICS pattern magazine can be loaded to around 2.500". The Barnes jams around 2.410" if I remember right and leaves plenty of bullet in the neck by some peoples standards. Don't be afraid to experiment. http://accurat...

Re: NRA moving to Texas

I have to agree, Wayne in the mix spoils the results. His indulgence in his own fortune at the expense of the membership reeks. I am sure that also figured into the NRA wanting to come the Texas. Didn't they buy a mansion in the DFW area for him? All the funds request from the NRA goes into the tra...

The original 300 Ham’r? 30-30 Wesson, made from a 357 Maximum case. Straight tapered to .308. Case is a bit short at 1.635”, but it’s as close as you can get with a existing case. Introduced about 1880. Those are 175 & 190 grain Bullets. 223 case and 300 Blackout with a 110 Varmageddon for reference...
