Re: 300 Ham'R

That goes without saying Ghost. But what I meant was while the 300 bo did mimic the 300 whisper and both can generally be shot from the same chamber the whisper predated standardization and therefore that statement is not exclusively true. While it may not be “exclusively” true, it is for all inten...

I think there are better supersonic rounds and the subs from BO in my experience work nicely suppressed.

Yes and no


Please elaborate.

Re: 300 Ham'R

Wasn’t the whole point of the blackout to shoot subsonic projectiles through a suppressed rifle? There are plenty of other cartridges to choose from if you just want more velocity, but that sort of defeats the purpose of the .300 blk. This is like saying that the .223 is “better” than the .22LR.

Russstra?

Too bad INOR has disappeared

Re: Rice instead of pins for tumbler

No. I usually do 90 minutes, or until I remember to take them out. If they are slightly less clean towards the end of the rice’s life span, I don’t notice it. I cleaned about 1200 308 cases last weekend and the rice was dirty to start with. They all came out looking fine. The shininess has zero impa...

I use it for a long time. Probably 4-5 batches at least.

Nope, just plain bull white rice out of a 25# bag from Sam’s club. It was like $13 for the bag, so I can’t imagine that corn cob is much cheaper. Rice doesn’t break down like corn cob, and it cleans better.

Re: Rice instead of pins for tumbler

I’ve been using regular white rice in the vibratory tumbler for about the last 18 mo the or so. I used a stainless tumbler since 2010 or so before that, and I can’t imagine that I’ll ever go back to that process. 90 minutes in rice and all brass comes out about a good as walnut, but no dust. Cases a...

Re: Question from a Texan

Dakota county was also less than $100 the last time I renewed, I’m thinking it was $75 too.

Re: New Lawsuit Argues That Customizable Rifles Are Illegal

My feelings are that gun owners don't agree on why they should own guns, what they should own and whether there are any absolutes of ownership. The general lack of consensus does not bode well. Many who own are not passionate about it and if asked or told to surrender their weapons would comply. Ex...

Re: New Lawsuit Argues That Customizable Rifles Are Illegal

The gun owning public are the definition of dysfunctional. In what way? In the way we expect those we support to protect our rights to actually use that money to protect our rights? I guess so. To hear some tell it, we should probably just double our contributions to the NRA and not concern ourselv...
