Forget about it and it will go by fast. I’ve waited 344 days at the longest and 20 at the shortest.

The E file form 1 turn around time is now approximately 12 days.

Good time to be a DIYer. May just submit one or two cans for sheets and giggles.

My son-in-law filed almost a month before me and got his back last week, so it should be close.

I hope that the government shut down does not affect the background checks. The wait is long enough.

I bet it doesn't slow them down cashing the checks
When those totally ignorant of firearms make laws, you end up with totally ignorant firearm laws.

Ventura Munitions used to carry an awesome 187gr large polymer tipped sub that I loved, but they haven't had it in stock for a while. It's pretty easy to find a non-expanding bullet for reloading plinking subs, but when you are ready to go hunting, be prepared to lay out the bucks for Lehigh or Makers bullets.

Hey Gman,
I didn't catch what your intended purpose for the subs was, or barrel length, etc. I'm running a 16" barrel with a carbine length non-adjustable gas system. I can't remember my buffer tube weight, but I'm running a standard carbine spring and I really haven't had any issues with reliability of any factory subs. I can't say accuracy was spectacular, but certainly decent at 50 and 100 yds. I did have to play with the buffer tube weight some to get my 300 to run with my handloads, but that's not what you're asking about.

I do want to play with Hornaday's new subsonic expanding ammo, but haven't gotten the chance yet. Maybe I'll head to the woods later this month and shoot some water jugs?

Which hornady subsonic bullet are you referring to?
