Re: 2018 shooting challenge

@ Dellet: Nice shootin! I had hoped to shoot today, but I have asbestosis from growing up in Libby, MT. Forest fire smoke is tough on my lungs, our valley is filled with smoke again this year. The Grizzly story is a sad account, pray the gal recovers completely. Latest move by the damn Griz fanatics...

Re: Speer 130 HP with W296

I have some, loaded a small sample with a start charge of 18.0 gr H110. They shot very well, just have not returned to that loading. So many other test projects in the works. OAL/feeding issues can arise with that blunt HP, you just have to load some and test.

Re: Speer 125 tnt hp with CFE BLK

I have not tried CFE BLK with supers yet, but today was shooting the 125 TNT over 18.3 gr H110, OAL is 2.060 for AR pistol feeding. Very accurate with avg speed around 2250 in my RARR. I also shot 20 rounds of Remington Premier Match 125 gr OTM and this stuff shot as accurate as any of TNT loads. St...

Re: Ruger american ranch with pmag

I just loaded a 20 rnd Pmag with some Mast loaded 220 SMK. OAL is 2.215", a nice fit with just a bit of room to spare.

Re: Anyone know where I can FIND powder that will work for subs?

Yes sir, the interweb newbie threads and panicked powder posts are almost a distant memory...almost. The latest, on going blather on firearms and hunting forums is the constant 'wait time' posts on suppressors. Geez louweez, it's gonna take what it takes to process, asking on every forum you visit i...

Re: USING COPPER FOULING CLEANERS

Wipe Out plus the accelerator speeds up the foam and will remove copper like nothing we've used. I mean, copper in barrels that other brands left behind. I also shoot a lot of CFE 223 powder and it certainly reduces or nearly eliminates copper build up. In our .223's and 22-250's, after a day blasti...

Re: Good place to buy 16" blk upper?

I had a 16" carbine stainless 1/8 upper from Hardened Arms that was the most accurate BLK platform I have owned to date. We have built several, some shooting very well with no issues, but the HA upper was a gem. Why did I sell....darn good question. Never sell a shooter folks, regret is a pill that ...

Re: Help me choose a powder

Dolomite, I am going to be ordering some of those 265's from Acme in the next day or so, really look forward to dialing those in. If you would, I'd appreciate some of your data to start off. I have been using some of my own cast and coated 230's and some 245's(Missouri) with nice results. My 300 BLK...

Re: Why is it so hard to shoot subs?

Dellet, I always appreciate your info and wise counsel. I have some BLK brass being lovingly prepped now for some long awaited sub testing. It was a long darn winter up here, with rain and windy conditions nearly every afternoon lately. I have had such good results with the 208 Amax, gonna try the E...
