Re: First outing with my Ruger American 300: ammo, mags

Thanks for the replies so far, folks! I guess I forgot to mention that I DID have 2 of the UMC's go "click". One I tried to refire a couple of times without success. Ruger says that of all the ammo they tried, only Barnes and UMC have trouble. About 20 of them fired fine. For the first outing and no...

First outing with my Ruger American 300: ammo, mags

Finally got my Ruger American Rifle in 300 out to the range last night after work. It was pretty cold (37 - 40), but dry and little breeze. Before getting into the shooting, a little bit about magazines. I have the one supplied with the rifle (#1) and two additional factory ones (#2 and #3). All hav...

Re: My first steps into the 300

Yeah, only 5 in the mag for centerfire or 10 for rimfire. On the rifle range, all shooting must be from the bench. Makes it hard to want to shoot blackpowder there...can't see myself shooting my Brown Bess flintlock from the bench. Range rules suck sometimes, but the range being very close to work i...

My first steps into the 300

I posted about my 300 BLK AR pistol build on that Arf site, but thought maybe I should introduce it here. http://www.teddydog.org/guns/ar15/300blk_pistol1_small.jpg (the upper doesn't look plum in person) Lower: Anderson Manufacturing (from my inventory) LPK: Brownells Trigger: from my parts stash, ...

182 gr "heavy ball" 7.62 Russian bullets for subsonics?

I'm brand new to 300 BLK and will be loading once my pistol is up and running (then then later an SBR). I've been doing some reading about making inexpensive "plinking" ammo. I see some have used bullets meant for 7.62x39 and of course these are light weight for supersonic loads. I've also seen some...
