Re: 300 Wilson Ham’r

I built an upper last Feb/Mar, and was awaiting Spring wx to test. Started loading ammo and all procedural items that entails. Unfortunately, in early May, I had to have surgery on my right arm due to tendon separation, and was out of action until late September. Since then I have test fired the upp...

Re: Aguila .22 Subsonic Solid Point issue.

22 ammo is weird. I have found the Aguila to be inconsistent. For consistency, try some of the Federal Match. I like RWS subsonic HP but it gets a bit pricey. IIRC, Wolf Match is manufactured by RWS. I have a case of this stuff because it shoots very well from my 10/22 and my Compass Lake .22 upper...

Re: Question for Glock guys

Because ounces count, especially when you are not in your youth and able to carry heavy loads. When I was 18 I could carry an M60, 250 rounds of ball, my ruck, two canteens, and a 1911. Now that I'm 62 with a hip replacement, and a bum right arm due to a bicep tendon separation, every ounce that goe...

Re: Gun Industry news

Typical corporate raider activity. Find a company with assets and an over funded pension, but having a bad patch of luck or a decrease in cashflow, go see your bankster buddies and get a low interest rate loan, and use the loan to get a majority position in a publicly held company or as a incentive/...

Re: Passing this along

I sent him a PM with my e mail address. Hopefully he will respond. If not I'll have to save in my "gun budget" for an MGM barrel.

Re: Debating a 300BLK Bolt Action

Let's just say that squirrels and feral **** don't know what hit 'em. I shot at one and missed-40+ yards-and had plenty of time for the second shot, which connected. I would like to have a barrel for my Encore in 300 BLK, but $500 for an MGM is in the future as the "gun budget" has been taken up wit...

Re: Passing this along

I would like to purchase this barrel, but even after signing up for the site it will not let me post a reply or contact the seller.

Re: Debating a 300BLK Bolt Action

I have three 300 BLK's, one AR, one CZ, and one M7. I like the AR very much, especially with supers. It works fine with heavy bullet subs, but lighter weight subs are problematic with the gas system installed. I could change the gas block to an adjustable and solve the problem, but lack of time has ...

Re: 300 AAC BLACKOUT questions

Bangbangping, Dellet is correct. I did mean subsonic, rather than suppressed. I intend to use my HAM'R suppressed with supers, so my bad in describing the difference. As to bullet weights etc., yes, longer heavier bullets will not work as the twist in the HAM'R barrel is 1/15". It is meant to optimi...
