Re: 125 gr. Fiocchi sst.

Got out and sighted in my pistol today. Running a Daniel Defense 10" upper. Started at 25 yrds. 5 shot 1 hole group. Moved it to 50, 10 shot group you could cover with a quarter. Plus the brass is reloadable. Sgammo had some in stock the other day. I ordered 15 boxes. Rreread this today and thought...

Re: STICKY - Good/Bad brass list converting 5.56->300blk

I've got a bunch of TAA brass that is too thick. What do you guys do with it? I can load it then run it through my sizing die but that seems like a lot of work. Did about 6 this way and I'd guess the chance of getting a stuck case is fairly high.

Suggestions?

Now if I could just get auto correct from changing what I type, life would be good.

Re: Makers 190 and CFE BLK subsonic

Wow. This all makes my head hurt. Someone was correct in that there is no published data by Maker on these bullets. I did find where someone called Hornady and received data from them on their 190 gr. Load. And there is a YouTube video of reloading the Maker 190. I did lots of cross referencing with...

Re: Compressed loads?

It s either a poorly worded question or a trick question. Basically being unfamiliar with the cartridge. It’s impossible to have any kind of rule for loading this cartridge other than any load ca go sideways and ruin your day. At last count I have used over 30 powders and 100 bullets, probably more...
