Re: Mini 300blkout/Garand build

More good news, 20.0 gr with 150 gr bullets will eject and feed. Might have to bump the CFEBLK up a hair. But while grouping it is shooting low at 35 yds. I milled some off the garand front sight but am also going to play with the ruger rear sight as I’ve run out of elevation. I need to fab up a tal...

Re: Mini 300blkout/Garand build

Had a breakthrough today using 21.0 gr of CFEBLK and 110 gr rn, 123 gr zmax, 125 gr midway plastic tipped and 130 gr hp bullets. All ejected and stripped the next rd. Couldn’t get H110 to work no matter what I did. More testing needed but at least my build’s running with my handloads. I had to swap ...

Re: Ammo for mini300/garand build

Just tried 21.0 gr of CFEBLK and a 123gr .310 zmax and got ejection and feeding! I thought that I tried these before but maybe that was with H110. I’m wondering if the .310 vs .308 is giving me that extra bit of pressure needed to make the magic happen? Just tried 110 rn and 130 gr hp .308 and they ...

Re: Ammo for mini300/garand build

Experiment; added 2.0 gr of H110 to the powder in a pulled apart aguila rd, powders look identical, put it back together. Great ejection but no feeding.

Re: Ammo for mini300/garand build

Per your suggestion dellet I pulled one American Eagle rd apart with my inertia puller in 2 whacks so not a tight crimp. OAL is 2.20. Bullet was a 150 gr FMJ-BT with a crimp groove. The powder weighed 19.0 gr and looks a lot like H110 or CFEBLK. I dumped it back into the case only came as high as th...

Ammo for mini300/garand build

At first I thought that I had built a $$ manually operated semi auto garand but after some tinkering with the op rod springs and spring guide I’ve gotten it to eject 100% but only American Eagle 150gr will reliably feed the next rd. ??? Does anyone know the actual powder that Federal uses in these c...

Re: Mini 300blkout/Garand build

My .33blkout/garand build here is also on the Gunboards and Perfect Union forums complete with photos. After my smith put it together but got stumped and couldn’t get it to cycle I picked it up last week to start tinkering with it. I eventually got it to feed, fire and eject 8 rds of American Eagle ...

Re: Mini 300blkout/Garand build

I’m using an ipad pro and have my photos in folders. There are no computer id with these just the images. On the other sites I haunt it’s relatively easy to use their image access, some are more picky as to size and a second app is needed on most. When I go advanced it allows my to pull up me photos...

Mini 300blkout/Garand build

I started build this years ago. It started out as an older mini14 that was rebarreled by Accuracy Systems to 300 blkout. I then inlet the bbled action into a italian garand stock. After a few dead ends trying to find someone to install a gas cylinder I found a guy willing to do the work. He’s had my...
