Re: Speer Gold Dot 150 BLK

Question for you guys, I have found an accurate load for my 10.5" pistol, but it is only 1720 fps. Do you think the bullet will perform at that speed inside of 100 yards? I really would like to use it for deer this year if I can.

Re: Doctors Asking About Firearms In Home

I replied to my doctor "I don't have a single gun." He laughed, I have been going to him for over almost 40 years now so he knows and doesn't care.

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.

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

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.
