Re: Shooters World Socom?

Re: Help me find something...

There used to be a link to a chart that a member(Dellet, or Certifiable, I think) had created showing lighter weight subs and powders and whether the combo cycled or not. I could've swore I saved it but can't find it, or the link, any longer. If anyone could post the link or send it in a pm, I'd re...

Re: Subsonic Unsuppressed 300blk from 8.3" Barrel

After today's trip to the range I am now up to a total of 21 recipe variations with the 220gr Hornady ELD-X....and I am pretty much "fed up" with it. I just recorded the best ES and StDev numbers of my reloading career (five different 5-rd loads all with ES <15 and StDev <10, one load was even ES 8 ...

Re: Subsonic Unsuppressed 300blk from 8.3" Barrel

What bullet are you using? The Amax/ELD are both very jump tolerant. The loads you posted, I would work the B/C load for the CFE. To keep compression the same I change seated depth .010" for every .10 grain of powder. So my C load would have been 110.0 @ 2.218". I think with that bullet powder comb...

Re: Accuracy Issues

OK you got the first clue - posted 2015. Missed the second - 2 total posts. It is the reason that a lot of the old guard here are reluctant to waste time interacting with a new guys problems. Especially if he doesn't give a lot of details. Notice experienced folks asked questions and he replied onc...

Re: Subsonic Unsuppressed 300blk from 8.3" Barrel

Maybe I missed it, didn't see what primer you are using. I am using CCI #41 labeled "for 5.56 ammunition" primers, I had just assumed they should be OK for 300blk as well. The powder is growing on me in a carbine gas system. I really think the answer seems to be 100-110% case fill to get reasonable...

Re: Subsonic Unsuppressed 300blk from 8.3" Barrel

If you have a load that will not cycle, but will lock back on the last round, you have a problem. The carrier has to travel farther to lock than to cycle. Carrier may be dragging on loaded rounds in the magazine, but something is wrong. CFE is being CFE, slightly unpredictable. 2 MOA with subs as a...

Re: Accuracy Issues

I recently finished an 8" upper build using a barrel from Aeroprecision 1:7" twist rate. I believe the Aero barrels are sourced from Ballistic Advantage but im not sure. First range trip did not go well however. 50 yard groups ( longest available in my area) were running 5 inches with 187 grain Gem...

Re: Subsonic Unsuppressed 300blk from 8.3" Barrel

So here we go, my very strange results from the weekend at 50 yards. Extremely poor accuracy has been a recurring theme with this rifle, both handloads and factory. My most accurate subsonic load EVER is the 1.25 MOA load below. I am using a Primary Arms 6x scope. You should probably be able to shoo...

Re: Subsonic Unsuppressed 300blk from 8.3" Barrel

So which is it? Not trying to grind on the subject, but it’s actually important to know what actually solved the issue. Was it more powder? Did you miss something that you corrected in the assembly of the rifle? Did it just need lube? I would expect it to have full function down to at least 10.5 gr...
