Re: Subs/Supers POI Question

Barrel length does not affect accuracy, it affects velocity. I run the Rainer Arms match 8.5 and it is very accurate. That vendor did choose to use a 1:8 twist instead of the 1:7 that AAC standardized on. Longer heavier subs "should" actually benefit from that twist rate. I think you have that back...

Re: Dillon XL 650 Accessories Recommendations

1) When starting, you have to charge the primer wheel with 6 pulls.. Annoying.. It takes a few seconds to cycle the rotary primer disc, I don't consider that annoying at all. 2) Without a case feeder (or a helper!), you can quickly get into a rhythm which causes one to lose track of how many shell ...

Re: Dillon XL 650 Accessories Recommendations

thats kinda why i like having a basic powder cop with the o-ring. you get a solid idea every charge whats going on, its not just a yes/no tester. You can essentially do the same thing with the Dillon powder check, visually watching where the point on the buzzer housing meets up with the V in the ro...

Re: Dillon XL 650 Accessories Recommendations

Case feeder for sure with a 650, not much point in having a 650 without one IMO. I like the roller handle, inline fabrication light kit, upgraded deprimer catch and live primer catch. A powder check die helps, but the intent is to tell you that you have no charge or a double charge. It's just not t...

It sure makes a lot of sense if you want your ammo to work in a number of different guns. I make .223 and 300BLK ammo and if it fits the respective Sheridan gauge, it works in all my respective guns.

Re: Follow up on Swage It swager

It just never ceases to amuse me how little it takes to flush the control freaks out of the woodwork! :mrgreen: Fine with me if the mods merge the two threads. Fine with me if folks keep using those bench-mounted swagers! 8) I consider it more "common sense" and "common courtesy" to have one thread...

Re: How to attach a suppressor to reach 16' and avoid sbr stamp.

However the design, you just have to make certain you have a barrel and anything attached that is "permanent" and 16" or more in length.

Re: Follow up on Swage It swager

Can a mod merge the two threads into one?
