Re: Hello,Any locals to Rockford Illinois

I bought a 1986 Fiero GT in Rockford in 1998. It's still in my garage. In Colorado. Born in Geneva, grew up in Morris, left for what I thought was greener grass 12 years ago. Welcome to the forum.

Re: Mark 12 Mod 0 in 300 Blk

Pretty sure the Navy's SPR runs a rifle length gas system, at least that's what I copied when I built my version of one. I gotta say though, the SPR is a reacher-outer, takes the 5.56 out to about the end of it's usability, kinda the opposite of what the 300blk is for. If I was gonna build a big, he...

Re: Alleged subsonic loads not subsonic?

I have a Leonidas. Do this: Lock your bolt back, go in the bathroom and close the door, shoulder the rifle and hit the ping pong paddle. That, plus a slight increase in volume from port noise, is what it should sound like with subs. After a split second, you'll hear a thump in the berm (or clang on ...

Re: New to re-loading - fist batch too hot?

Getting started reloading is scary. Getting started reloading with a cartridge that was recently a wildcat and involves a bottleneck? Even scarier. I started off with straight wall pistol cartridges, never deviating from published data, and only moved on to bottlenecks (which will double your invest...

Re: Dangerous Plastic Cased Ammo PCP

Seems the issue was the fluted chamber, I think that leaves portions of the case unsupported. Has worked fine with brass forever, but the plastic didn't like it.

Re: Wilson Combat bad-mouthing the 300 Blk

This is the first I am hearing about this 7.62x40...you know what. No. Just plain out No. I'm not even going to look into it. I don't want to hear about any more of these freaking AR-15 cartridges. It seems like everyday there is something else they are trying to shove down our throats. I plan to f...

Re: Dangerous Plastic Cased Ammo PCP

The whole existence of PolyCase was to develop a polymer round that couldn't be reloaded by bad guys in some jungle in South America. If I remember right, .380 was the biggest they ever figured out, everything else self destructed. They shifted their focus to polymer bullets, and now the ARX is out,...

Re: Any Glock Tinkerers Here?

A-game, I got the Gen 4 for the interchangeable backstraps and the larger mag release button. Turns out I don't use any of the backstraps, so it's the same frame size as the Gen 3 SF anyway...that mag release button turns out to be what I paid for. Live and learn I suppose. Golf, 9x25 Dillon barrel ...
