  1. Handloading for Long Range or Bench Rest We will be learning how to inspect and scrutinize each component of a loaded round of ammunition for consistency & accuracy. We'll Also go over how to carefully & methodically work up the most accurate possible load for a rifle with a given set of components. (It's east to get a rifle to shoot @ 100 yards. We'll go over means & methods to get it shooting it's best at LONG range...

  2. One thing I will stress about the dies, going cheap ruins your brass. I initially purchased a set of Lee 6.5 Grendel dies and the results were very inconsistent. At time during the resizing, the brass was "crushed". At nearly a buck each, I didn't want to risk losing additional cases. I opted for the Redding competition dies and its been smooth sailing ever since. I'll give you my old Lee dies if you like. You can't go wrong with Sabre! As for your lower, just pick a reasonably priced one. It does not need to be stamped with anything grendel specific. Mine is a Spikes Tactical lower and has
  3. Let be start by saying you get what you pay for... My project started with a reasonably priced used AA upper. I found this on www.65grendel.com. (You can also find good deals on gunbroker.com.) I then added additional upgrades over time as I could afford them. I looked at the GSR upper, but like you, the price was beyond my budget. AA only offers a gas piston upper in 18", and I wanted a 24" barrel. When considering a piston upper, the price is significantly higher up front. BUT, if you choose a standard configuration and install a piston conversion kit at a later date, you pay approx the sa
  4. Better late than never! This work stuff is definately interferring with my play time. I attended the long range shooting class on March 19th. A bit of background on me. Having spent 12 years in the Army, I was not that familiar with anything outside of iron sights or my trusty, issued Aimpoint red dot. Last Summer I finished my 6.5 Grendel build and topped it with a Leupold Mark IV. Well, this was a high end scope, but it did me little good when I didn't understand exactly what I was looking through. It has a TRM reticle with 1/4 MOA adjustments, and I could never seemed to "make it work".
  5. NOooooo, I fear change. I shot a few rounds yesterday. Its definately a new feeling using that grip. I was hoping to move the grip forward, but forgot a screwdriver.
  6. Thanks for the input guys. I think this touches on part of the issue. I got caught up in a tacticool (impulse) moment. One of those "hey, I don't have one of those." I normally shoot it with by simply grasping the rail. As I said in my initial post, some mandatory range time should quickly identify whether or not I keep it, or put it on my son's mid-length AR. I also noticed I am unable to operate my flashlight. Maybe Magpul needs can add a pressure-switch option on future models. Do they have a "suggestion box"?
  7. Last night I bought the Magpul Angled Fore-Grig. I like the look but I'm not sure I like the feel. How many of you have this installed on your evil black rifles? Does it take some "getting used to"? Has anyone gone from a vertical style hangrip to the AFG? I guess I will wait and see until I put a few rounds down-range.
  8. Lookin' good! What optic are you looking at installing?
  9. I can throw some help your way. I have a Dillon 550 instead of a Hornady press, but the basic steps remain the same. Out of the list of calibers, I can walk you through the makings of a 5.56/.223 round. Shoot me a PM when your move is complete.
  10. Count me in if you are bringing the class to Nashville.
  11. Sipsey Street Irregulars: This is going to piss off a number of people -- thoroughly and completely. I help Paul Helmke with his next crusade. Try to figure out why. This is not recent, but it's the first I have come across it. Here is a portion of the article at the link above. Does this only refer to all firearms or shotguns (with pistol-grips) with NO stock? I'm confused here. Too much legal jargon. ATF Letter Ruling means that a "pistol grip firearm" is a Destructive Device In a section entitled "Pistol Grips and Shotguns" on pages 2-3 of its November 2009 FFL Newsletter (click here
  12. I am interested, but its too far for me. I will be first in line when the class comes to Nashville.
  13. I like it. It's so nice to have a clean bolt carrier after shooting all day. Wipe it down, lube it up, and your back in business! I was concerned that the Grendel would be too much for the piston kit, but so far it has worked perfectly. I had to modify/machine my rail to allow room for the carrier actuating rod movement. It took some time and gave me some headaches but it has been worth it. I would recommend this kit to anyone wanting to upgrade to a gas piston upper.
