Re: Ruger American Ranch 300BLK - Magazine options?

I wonder if I could just call them and order it? I have off and on issues with mine feeding too. Right now I have aluminum tape in the mag well to make it tilt up at the front so I can get reliable feeding.

Re: Ruger American Ranch 300BLK - Magazine options?

Do you have a part number for that adapter? I would like to pick one up for my 300 blackout ranch rifle.

Re: Report spam

As I get off about 10pm I read at night, so I report the a$$hats every time I see it.

Re: The importance of headspace.

It is something I have seen shooting small bore IHMSA over the years, and with centerfire bolt guns if the cases have been sized too much you get bad groups. ARs I have to make sure they all are the same size, but small enough to feed no matter how fouled they get.

Re: Minimum loads. 125gr.

H110 and Winchester 296 should never be reduced! Reduced loads with those powders can and have detonated in the past. In short, reduced loads can be a pipe bomb waiting to happen with those powders. Other powders like 4227 you can get away with it to a small extent, but then you might stick a bulle...

Re: Cycling issues

I see you have all the heavy buffers, but do you have a standard carbine buffer? I haven't had to use a heavy buffer in my blackouts yet. I would try that and see what happens.

Re: Setting up handloading on Dillon 550

I have mine set up with a 30 carbine funnel as it will give a little flare for flat based bullets. Also works well for cast bullets.

Re: Speer Gold Dot 150 BLK

M.S. gives 1850 avg for the GD in 18" 1:10 barrel - 19gr cfeblk. I find the GD with (evidently) softer jacket is not as accurate as the 150SPP from hornady. You might try about 3 more grains of powder if you're going to use CFE. I find 1/2-3/4 MOA more than adequate for a hunting bullet, are you sa...

Re: Subsonic 6 ft. impact

I finally found out what was causing the bullet to impact the burm so high... it was the muzzle device.

Re: Ruger American Ranch 300BLK - Magazine options?

So does anybody know what the difference is between the ranch rifle that accepts pmags and the one that uses a rotary mag? All I have heard is that the bolt is different but I can’t find pictures at all. I’m willing to modify my receiver if it will take the stock that accepts the pmags. I had the r...
