Re: Am I going to regret selling my AAC upper?

As a rule, I don't sell guns. I've regretted it enough times already. Can you swap the handguard out yourself on the AAC upper? That's kind of where this all started. I was only able to find one or two replacement keymod/mlok (I would prefer mlok) hand guards that would work at the 8" length of the...

Hackathorn: 300BLK Fades, Joins 6.8

From Ken Hackathorn's recent newsletter predicting trends for the future of firearms: "I predict that the 300 Blackout will continue to fade in popularity and soon join the 6.8."

You also said you have bullet shavings in the suppressor after firing right. Makes me really think your getting baffle strikes just enough to shave the bullet and ...

Re: do you full length resize after every firing?

There is no reason to neck size, except maybe for literal bench rest competition. The downside is reduced reliability, and having ammo sitting around that is not compatible with other guns. Even some of the top LR BR/F-class guys are FL sizing every firing now days. This is because you have to inde...
