Re: Talk me into or out of a Rebel SOS Hunter Gen II

I have one, and an original SOS556, and a handful of SOS22's. I also have some much more expensive cans. It's hard to even comment on them without getting flamed but here goes. I love them, and not just for the price. They work. I check the bore alignment on every can before I shoot it. I had one of...

Re: Feed Ramps

I don't know if there is a standard, but I bought a couple of barrels from Classic Firearms that came with wider feed ramps, as in the pic. I loaded up some old 30-30 bullets I had into 300blk and they fed them well. Others wouldn't.

Re: Subsonic 300 Blackout Suppressors

I also have a YHM Phantom. I have shot it for years without worrying about cleaning it. Of course, it is a QD, and rotates to a 308 once in a while, and shoots a fair amount of super 300blackout.

Re: Today's reloading musings

I do not notice a change that I can trace back to the brass. Take into account that I am usually the variable in my groups anyway. I felt the same way about the loads I worked up, then SPS went out of stock on the bullets I was buying, and they cost a LOT more elsewhere. Ugh.

Re: Jacketed loads with H110 & 2400

Not exactly, but close. I load with WC820 milsurp powder. I was told to start with H110 or AA#9 load data. I started at 15 grains with a 125 bullet, and finished at 18 grains, with 2,250fps out of a 16" AR barrel.

YMMV

Re: Prefered handgun.

Generally, the one I have in my hand. All joking aside, it changes often. I love my FN Five Seven, but it doesn't get the trigger time it used to. I really like 1911's, but they are generally too heavy for EDC. I had one built that is only 24 oz. I just got it and love shooting it, but haven't carri...

Today's reloading musings

I started off the day yesterday with a very specific reloading mission, and I feel like I got there, so now it is sharing time. Last month, I jumped on a 2 for 1 deal at Global Ordinance and bought a lot of their Australian Defense Industries 300 blackout. It is 125 grain SMK bullets, and I have bee...

Re: The Wait Is On

Ventura Munitions used to carry an awesome 187gr large polymer tipped sub that I loved, but they haven't had it in stock for a while. It's pretty easy to find a non-expanding bullet for reloading plinking subs, but when you are ready to go hunting, be prepared to lay out the bucks for Lehigh or Make...

Re: Can't get my suppressed 300 AAC AR quiet

Back to the original post. I am curious as to what you are able to work out. I recently read a review of an adjustable gas block with some results that made no sense to me. It was the type of adjustable block that bleeds of the gas forward, rather than just closing it off. My assumption that another...

Re: Yankee Hill Phantom

Old post, but did you get it? I have it in a titanium QD and it is my favorite can. It rotates among a half dozen hosts and works great.
