Re: 300 Blackout Magazines

Does anyone have a list of bullets that they have tried or that require the use of 300BLK mags or altering a standard PMag?

I am considering buying a stack of 300BLK Magpul mags to have just in case, but before I fork over the money I am wondering how widespread the problem is.

Re: Optimum barrel length?

Not really any optimum barrel length in general, but for the stated purpose of pig hunting I would go longer barrel for velocity reasons. Opinions will vary on the subject. Also bullet selection is important as well. Terminal effects are important and most are dependent on higher velocities. That sa...

Re: What's wrong with making 300 BLK brass?

Sorry. I have not been online a lot since this original post. Since then I have formed around 500 pieces of BLK brass and for the most part they worked great. I've shot no less than 500 rounds on my own formed brass. Here is my report on what has and hasn't worked. In those 500ish pieces of brass I'...

Re: suppressor compatible handguards?

Given that hoop strength isn't the end all and be all to the discussion. Standing on its own it's not a big deal for most people provided that the hand guard isn't made out of Chineseium and is made to spec. Also tucking a suppressor also means that you need to shoot suppressed 100% of the time depe...

Re: suppressor compatible handguards?

I should also add that having that kind of tucked under setup promotes really bad shooting techniques. Watch the video below from Tu. Pay attention to the whole thing but particularly the parts about the grip, weight management, the vertical grip, etc. Not being able to mount things is bad but shoot...

Re: suppressor compatible handguards?

If you do mean something big enough ID to tuck a suppressor inside of it that is something I would never do nor recommend for anyone else to do either. Why not? There's many examples of these out there. What's wrong with doing it? There are numerous problems with that kind of setup hence in large p...

"Suppressor compatible" is an industry term meaning they are extra wide fit over a suppressor.
Been around the industry for a while now and I've never heard that before.

Re: suppressor compatible handguards?

What exactly do you mean "compatible"? There are a gazillion of them that are 'compatible'. If the hand guard isn't too long for the barrel then it's 'compatible'. The best fitting ones I've ever seen are from SLR. They make hand guards at very otherwise odd lengths to ensure a close fitment. If you...

Re: Optic for first AR 15

You need to define your parameters of what you are doing. At first glance it's easy to say a 1-4 or 1-6 power but it depends on what kind of shooting you will do. For general purpose I would start my look at those focal lengths. Also what focal plane do you prefer? Of you aren't sure watch some vide...
