Just Getting Started (2/5)



  1. My favorite .22. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk https://vimeo.com/176821287
  2. I went with the strike eagle. I didn't care for the PA reticle, a little too busy for my likes. You can not beat vortex's warranty. Without stepping way up in price those two are pretty much it. I have been happy with the strike eagle. I use it on a SBR 300blk and it's more than adequate for punching paper. I've also hunted with it and it's done the job well on two deer and a coyote. I made a card with the reticle yardage for super and subs. The glass is decent in low light but mine has some very slight distortion around the periphery @6X. Good luck.
  3. I was hoping someone could give me some advice on what to do with these. I don't know how old they are. They belonged to my Dad who died 24 years ago. I realize that what's bottled is bottled and it's not getting any better or worse. Anyone know anything about them? Are these worth anything? Or should I just open and enjoy?

  4. Thank you for taking the time to write this up.  Nicely done.
  5.   Nope.  Print out the electronic copy.  I kept waiting to see it in the mail too.  LOL
  6. While the Specwar is not the smallest and lightest from everything I've read it is the quietest.  I've been researching for a while now and just bought one a couple hours ago.  I have a Saker 7.62 that I really like as well.   I would go with a more lightweight can if not using on full auto.  Check out silencer shop they have lots of videos.  Some even compare different cans.
  7. M16 lower would be what I would get. Lots of options on uppers. Yes 9mm will run I'd recommend ramping the carrier for sure. Kns pins are a good idea too. I only have 2 F/A and I would not sell my M16 for anything. I have a CMMG .22 upper and that with a BDM 50 round drum is guaranteed to put a smile on anyone's face. Like 1gewehr says how many lowers have you seen destroyed beyond repair from normal use. I can promise you'll be craving a belt fed before long. When I can afford it that will be my next purchase.
  8. Welcome.  I'm another S. FL transplant.  Been here 18 years ain't never moving back.  I hardly even visit anymore. LOL
  9. I agree 100%.  But some of us don't have time to waste on the interwebs or sitting on the couch watching TV.  
  10. Youtube is your friend.  I watched a couple of vids and easily installed everything myself.
  11. Cost of components is one thing.  Time is another.  How much is a couple hours of your time worth to you?  I just started reloading.  I got into it to get the most accuracy and consistency from my rifles.  I have pistols in several cals but right now ammo can be found fairly inexpensive and in bulk.  To me pistols cals are not worth my time.  YMMV
  12. They are 1.406 in length. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. I used the case comparator when seating them and went .05 off the 2.277 measurement I got. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Here are the pics. I sat the bullet long. Pushed the bolt a little at a time until I felt resistance. I did this probably 10 times. It looked similar to this every time. Just a ring at that same spot. I NEVER saw anything that resembles rifling. The bullet will not go any deeper without it getting stuck and having to use a cleaning rod to get it out. The 2 or 3 times it did get stuck I still saw nothing that resembled rifling. Maybe the throat is narrow? Maybe rifling isn't right? Maybe I'm an ignoramous? I've spent hours watching old timers YouTube video doing this and hours doing it. I'm not doing it again. Not one more time!! LOL. :-) I've loaded some up. They fit in the mag, feed, and chamber fine. I'm starting with the recommend minimum charge. Wish me luck. I really do appreciate all the help and suggestions. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
