Use a good muzzle device. Adjustable gas block. Lightweight bolt carrier with short, heavy buffer & spring. Modern bul...

Re: SBR Issue - Faxon 10.5”

I was having accuracy (extreme spread) issues with a 10.5", 1:8 ARStoner barrel. Everything I read about the caliber suggested that long, slow, and heavy projectiles in the 200 - 220 gr range are at the edge of the stability envelope at 1:8 twist. I switched to a 1:7 barrel and the issues disappeare...

Re: Does Play between upper and lower and accuracy?

Theoretically, the play between the upper and lower should not affect accuracy at all. Sighting and firing all happen on/in the upper. What sights or optics are you using? Shooting offhand, benchrest, or bipod? What does the crown of the barrel look like? So many other things affect accuracy much mo...

Re: awful experience with Smith and Sons Meat Processing in Mt.Pleasant, MI

Every game processor I have every dealt with ends up with extra meat at the end of the season from people who never come back and pay for the processing service. They don't actually sell the meat at the end of the season - they offer it to anyone who is willing to pay the processing fee.
