Re: Bolt action subsonic 300 blackout vs semi subsonic 9mm carbine

I have a cmmg 9mm mk9 (9mm ar15) and have loaded subsonic 147 xtp's and lead 147s. Shot themthrough my suppressor and they are quiet but no where near as quiet as my bolt 300 blackout. I use a 178 gr load with unique powder so its super quiet. To me it seemed like most of the noise was coming from m...

Re: Adding micrometer seating stem to RCBS Seating Die

On midway both the redding and hornady say they wont work with other dies, but i have the redding and i installed it on a dillon 308 seater die and it has worked flawless. I love mine. It certainly was worth every dime considering how much i change and test different loads. I believe i researched it...

Re: anyone on FB?

Yeah, this forum may not have nearly as many posts that they do. But the true knowledge and wealth of information is here no doubt. Its just a bunner to see someone that is new and asking questions and trying to learn, and get attacked with all kinds of ridiculous things. I appreciate all the help i...

I love mine so much i bought another for my 308...
