Re: New $109 .22LR Bolt Action Threaded BBL

Looks good to me. It begs for a scope.

I like a flat top blade for a front sight. Easier to index.

Re: IMR 4227 for supers and subs???

IMR4227 was designed for pistol sized rifle cartridges. It is flash suppressed. I have used it for many years and in a number of different cartridges. I would expect it to be fine for the 300 Blackout. I had a small quantity of IMR4227 so tried it with the Hornady 150 gr FMJBT. It worked fine in the...

Hornady 155 gr Match bullet with Crimp Groove

Anyone using this bullet? Is the crimp groove in the right place for the 300 Blackout?

The bullet number is 3039C.

Re: Barnaul is going to be making 300blk, Supposedly.

Saw some info on the net. It will be about $200.00 a thousand. That is about the same as 7.62x39. I think they will do well with this one. More people will buy a 300 Blackout as cheap practice ammo will be available, IMHO.

Re: First time reloading 300blk

It may take some work to get a good target load at that distance. I would try match bullets of different weights. IIRC, the original Whisper load was a 240 gr Sierra MK. I have not loaded any subsonic ammo yet so I cant help you with the powder. My Lyman AR Reloading Handbook lists A1680, Rx7, and H...

Re: PSA FEDARM BULK AMMO DANGEROUS

Concerning getting a stuck round out of the chamber, you can try using a screwdriver of the proper size between the bolt carrier and the frame. Take the upper off if possible and look down int the front area at the bottom of the bolt carrier. There will be a slight gap that the screwdriver will fit ...

Re: Max Speed To Expand

I have seen a number of tests of different 30 cal bullets. The standard soft points meant for roughly 308 Winchester speeds and above, will expand from 1800 fps to 2000 fps. It does depend on the individual bullet. Some may not expand at 2000 fps. The Speer Gold Dot 150 gr bullet is designed for 300...

Re: Have they fixed Ruger American Ranch Rifle's feeding problem???

I have the Lucky 13 10 round mag and it works just fine. I think they make a 5 shot conversion. I have 2 Ruger mags and they will only feed when loaded with 3 rounds. Tried the mods posted on Youtube with negative results. The AR-15 version was not available when I bought the rifle. Wish it had been.

I am very happy with it!
This is for the rotary magazine version of RARR, right?
Yes. Sorry I did not get back to this sooner.
