Re: loud / quiet

What I believe is that if a noise causes ringing of the ears there is some amount of damage. It might not be much but is cumulative over time and lessens your resistance to loud noises. Some truck drivers have hearing loss only into one ear, usually the left from driving miles and miles with the win...

Re: Specific Suppressor for 300 Blackout?

You are sacrificing a lot by limiting yourself to supers only. I reload, have both supers and subs. A suppressor does nothing for the supersonic crack of the bullet going supersonic. A suppressor does nothing for the clang of the action closing on an AR. Frankly, if I were not going to shoot sub-son...

Re: 410 single shot with split barrel

The idea of someone trying to shoot .45 or even .44's through the gun sounds reasonable. Overall, the gun is in good condition. Bore is shinny, no serious dents, dings or deep rust. I took one of my .45 bullets from reloading and put it at the muzzle end at the split. it would not fit, though only b...

Re: Ammo shortage

Thinking back, when I first started reloading I would buy 100 primers at a time from the local gun store. Now it is 2-3 thousand at a time of small rifle and the same for small pistol. Large rifle 1,000 and large pistol maybe 2,000 at a time. Powder per load is really a non-issue except for large ca...

410 single shot with split barrel

My deceased father-in-law left me a "Bridge Gun Company" break action single shot 410 in good shape except for the split. The barrel seems to have had a beaded front sight. The barrel is split through the now non-existing front sight and back behind the hole of the sight about a quarter inch. Barrel...

Re: Is shooting a 300 BO through a .40 pistol can OK

One of my first suppressors was a Yankee Hill Cobra M2 in .40 pistol can. Bought it 12-14 years ago. It is a heavy steel stake driver of a can. One of my 300 BOs is a heavy barrel bolt gun so weight is not an issue. My gut feeling is as long as the caliber is larger than the bullet I would be OK. A...

Re: Ruger No1

I have a Ruger #1 in .223, so I know that they made them at one time. Whether they will in the future is anyone's guess, as most are now a one run proposition through Lipsey's, with different cartridges featured each year. As was mentioned, the problem with a rebarrel is timing the extractor cut. A...

Re: Muzzle to Handguard Clearance

I hope you have a short wait. I think the best way to handle it is to expect a long wait, maybe a year, then if it shows up in 6 months you can be happy about it. It's still unconstitutional, but happy nonetheless that the wait wasn't the expected year. All the legal, needles hoops we have to go th...

Re: 300 blk optics

I have a 300 Black build going. Likely use the EOTech HWS 300 Blackout. Has both subsonic and supersonic settings. I have one of those. I have to reload for each dot and range. You cannot sight in for your favorite super and drop to a sub and use the underneath dot, or at least I cannot. Holdover c...
