Re: New ATF final ruling: Pistol Brace vs SBR

Or simply build the pistol without a brace? But that’s just it- even if you took off the “brace”, according to the ATF you’d still have a pistol if the barrel is less than 16”, hence required to register/license it. Believe me, I thought about just swapping out the brace to a straight tube, but tha...

New ATF final ruling: Pistol (Brace) vs SBR

Given the ATF has now ruled on braces being regulated on guns w/-16” barrels….what’s your intended action now? (for those that have ARs under 16”) Seems the gist is either A) tell the ATF you’ve built/bought a sub-16” barreled gun and require a license for it, or B) rebuild the barreled upper and pu...

AR in .410 upper platform- What’s the point?

Like everyone these days I’m getting bombarded with emails and texts from Midway, Brownells, OpticsPlanet etc! One company was advertising a sale ($279) for a 410 upper with buffer and 5rnd mag. My first thought was “cool, I don’t have one of those”, the other voice in my head said “What’s the point...

Re: Siamese Mauser conversion to 45-70

I too was looking and had a chance to shoot one a while back. Shot well, but didn’t feed worth a damn. Apparently that’s a very. I’m in problem with the converted Siamese ones.

Save old boxes, or no?

My brother told me many years ago to save my old gun boxes, scope boxes, parts boxes, etc because if I sold that particular item later, it was well worth having the original box. So I’ve saved everything….scope boxes, scope mount boxes, gun boxes, even upper and lower receiver boxes! I’m wallowing i...

Barrel scope around town?

Last night was at the 200yrd range firing prone (slow) w/service rifle using my meticulously loaded rounds (69gr SMK, LC brass, CCI primer, 25.3gr RE15). First and second shots were 7s at 11:00. (Which is weird because a week earlier it was dialed in) Regardless, the second shot -according to the Sh...

Anyone around town that can 'finish' my 99% done A2 build?

For the fun of it, I started a 'retro build', complete with split handguard, etc. I bought a retro rifle length barrel from Brownells but am having one h*ll of a time getting a front sight to stay secure. I just want to be done with it and sell it. (I have other toys on the brain now) I could swing ...

Trash these and start over? Or fire and hope for the best

In a reloading frenzy, I grabbed some primed 308 cases and some IMR 3031 (41gr) and topped it all with Barnes 130gr TTSX. I wasn’t too happy with the seating depth, but hastily made about 15 rounds. It was all feeding well but I noticed some oddities. The shoulder on a couple seem crushed. (See pics...

Re: Pm not leaving outbox

I'm having the same issue. Something is broken in the forum software...seems like a shaky platform. I've got mssgs not leaving the Outbox and it's incredibly frustrating. I doubt it's a 'until they read them', because A) they wouldn't have time to read thru mssgs and B) who the heck are "they&q...

WTT: Hornady 30 cal 180gr Round Nose 200x

Most of my shooting these days is match based, not hunting, so am looking for different bullets to trade. Hornady makes great bullets, but for matches I prefer Berger. Am also looking for 209 primers and shot. If bullets- I'm looking for heavy 223 or very light 308 or .264 (6.5). Two boxes of 100 in...

Re: Rifle sight in location?

I wonder if anyone has a recommendation on where I can go to check the zero on my deer rifle this weekend. 308 at 100 yards. I'm in the south metro-Eagan. Thanks in advance. Yukon, if you get into a bind again, ping me and we’ll head to Post435 range….I’m in Eagan too and it takes me 27 min to get ...

Re: Bad RCBS die? Or Go/No-Go Gauge? Or....?

The "gage" in the picture above is not in a headspace gage, it's a Wilson case holder for their case trimmer. It's suppose to fit tightly, so the case doesn't spin. https://media.mwstatic.com/product-images/src/Primary/966/966918.jpg?imwidth=680 Let's see, where's the emoj...

Re: Bad RCBS die? Or Go/No-Go Gauge? Or....?

Thanks for the gouge on the bases. RCBS has a "small base" sizing die and they describe it like this: The Small Base Sizer Die is for bottleneck type cases used in tight-chambering semi-automatic, pump or lever-action firearms. So if I plan on using some of the cases in my Garand and the o...
