Re: Good deer killer

I use an old Nivysis Utac 32m that I used to use on a rifle as a hand held. I have lost count of the deer I have found with it. Also handy for spotting deer just before the sun comes up or after it sets or walking to and from the blind in the dark..

Re: Suppressor for RARR

Both my RARR's like the thread-on CRUX Ark30. The Gemtech Quicksand quick mount suppressor, while quieter with its longer size, did not give as good of accuracy. However, since you'd be shooting some gas check lead bullets, I'd recommend a suppressor that you can take apart to remove the lead that w...

Re: Jacketed loads with H110 & 2400

Both my RARR's like this load: 18.9GR H110, NOSLER 125GR BT, LC BRASS, CCI 400, 2.2” OAL, no crimp One my RARR's gives 2278FPS average with the above load. The other gives 2160.9FPS average with the above load. While they both like the same loads, one has always been faster than the other, from a li...

Re: Ruger SR-762 accuracy issues.

I have the SR556 (Takedown 5.56 and the 300 Blackout conversion bbl). FWIW, both the SR762 and SR556 have now been discontinued. It took a lot of testing before I found a load that shot OK (to me, 1 1/2" 5 shot 100yd groups) in the 5.56 caliber. Repeated trips to the range were required. With the 5t...

Re: Best dies for 300Blk in an AR

I recommend a 300 Blackout case gauge (I use the Sheridan) so you can set whatever brand of sizing die so as to properly set the shoulder of the case in the proper position. I was having some failures to fire. It turned out that by setting the bottom of the sizing die to firmly contact the shell hol...

Re: 8.5 inch pistol Failure To Eject

Try one of the small O rings under the extractor to increase tension. You can pick them up off ebay for cheap. If that's not it try a slight hotter load. Could be your gas block is not aligned and you are not getting quite enough gas to completely cycle it. #60 O-ring. Available from Lowes in a 10 ...

Re: Reloading help! 125 and 150 grains

In testing my bolt action rifles (2 Ruger American Ranch Rifles), the CCI400 was more accurate than the BR4's (100yd groups were 1/2" - 3/4" smaller). Interesting. Is this with a specific load or across the board? Do you have a post of how you tested? One test I ran focused on ES, not accuracy. htt...

Re: Reloading help! 125 and 150 grains

Should i go with CCI 400 in the future? In the tests I've run, CCI 450 and BR4 were more consistent than CCI 400 or Rem 7 1/2 with H110. I'd stick with the 450's. In testing my bolt action rifles (2 Ruger American Ranch Rifles), the CCI400 was more accurate than the BR4's (100yd groups were 1/2" - ...

Re: Optimal load for 300 Blackout

Barnes 110gr black tip 20.0gr H110 2.25" OAL Accurate in many of my rifles. Mild crimp with Lee crimp die. (My Ruger Takedown SR556 in Blackout does prefer 20.1gr H110, but will give "OK" accuracy with the 20.0gr H110 load). CCI 400 primers are used in all but the above Ruger...it prefers the Wolf/T...

Re: Barnes 110 TAC TX (C.O.A.L.)

OP, I just checked the Barnes website. It lists the OAL of 2.25", not 2.26". Now, I'm a bit sloppier when it comes to case length (but it works fine for me)...I just make sure my cases for hunting, accuracy testing, and sighting in are 1.35" to 1.368". Over 1.368" and I trim to around 1.36". Under 1...
