Re: Subsonic Unsuppressed 300blk from 8.3" Barrel

Re: Reloading costs

I built an annealer much like that as well, and continue to tweak it as I go. The latest improvement is inductive proximity sensor to prevent double feeds.

Re: Form 4 Trust +14 Months

My can just arrived - picked it up yesterday 8) . I purchased the can on 7-10-2018, the ATF cashed the check on 7-28-2018, I emailed them last week and they said that it was approved on 7-15-2019. My FFL was behind on calling people by a few days.
