Re: Lockdown loading

I, too sent my original back for a refund as I could not fade the liability if the zero changed. The more I read about it the more I understood it was at extreme temperature changes when the zero moved. I missed the big donut sight so I bought a used one a 552.a65. It served me for a while before t...

Re: Lockdown loading

I sent all my EOTech optics back for refunds when their scandal blew up. L3 is a sh!tty slimy company. You couldn't pay me enough to use their garbage.

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

Not sure about the first round part, but my bet is that it's overgassed. Pretty common in the large platform ARs.

The rims get chewed up from violent extraction.

Re: MBC 215gr OEM coated cast bullets

MBC 215 coated. I've shot many, to wit;

16" AR
2.080 OAL, 10.5g 1680, avg 997fps

2.080 OAL, 9.3g 4227 can't find velocity, but it's subsonic. Barely enough gas to cycle

10" Encore
2.080 OAL, 6g Unique, avg 1028fps.

Re: Reloading bench chair

Instead of a chair, get an ultramount and stand.

Re: No Hazmat Fee??

You're going to take it on the chin buying one or two pounds at a time. Buy 16 or 32lbs and hazmat becomes a lower percentage of the overall cost. In the 30 years I've been buying powder (since highschool) it has never gotten cheaper. American reloading has some sales occasionally. I've bought milit...

I hit a 1/2" steel plate target with your 265 over 4227 @ 1000fps and it punched through like a freight train.

Re: PSA FEDARM BULK AMMO DANGEROUS

"electromagnetically inspected to ensure safe internal tolerances."

" The inspection labor savings on these rounds is passed onto you!"

Sounds like Engrish may not even be their first language. Maybe this ammunition came from Alibaba.

LOL....
