Re: what case trimmers do you use

I have a Lyman Universal, but for bulk loading with lower than max charges, I find using the Lee case Trimmer in my drill press on slow rpm, can trim the length of hundreds of cases in less than an hour.

Semi Auto carrier for 7.5" Barrel?

Just curious what your thoughts are on this. Almost done building my AR pistol. I have a 7.5" barrel, and can't help but think a semi-auto BCG (vs a full auto) might be better for a 7.5" barrel, due to being a little lighter. Thoughts?

Neck Reamer?

I've noticed with most of the 223 brass (especially the foreign stuff), the conversion into 300aac yields a neck that would put Brock Lesnar to shame.

I finalyl finished the pistol with a 6" long slide, and a bunch of 17rd magazines..... in 10mm. Yeah, in 10mm!!! Good heavens that gun is an absolute b...

New guy here

Hey all. New guy here. I am currently looking at the possibility of building a 300aac pistol with a 8.5" barrel, and thougth I would start by just sayin' hello. I have built a few of my own firearms in my collection over the years, and the idea of a 300aac pistol is quite intriguing. I started off b...
