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

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...

Re: T/C Contender 300 blackout strangeness

Well I went back out today, 34f outside.... But I was off work and had time. Took my Ruger ranch rifle in 300 blackout with me as well. I sighted both rifles in at 50 yards with the exact same load of 110gr Vmax bullets, about 2100fps out of both guns. I then switched to the 220gr Nosler rn bullets....
