Re: 6.5 MPC......opinions on it's performance?

A) Short term: developing a more effective, tumbling based projectile for the 5.56, similar to the 5.45x39, 5.7x28, ect. Tumbling rounds tumble based on their inballanced design, so they work much more reliably over a wider velocity range, unlike current fragmenting rounds which rely on very high v...

Re: The Suburban Shotgun: Is it really needed?

The shotgun is loaded with alternating 00 buck / deer slug / 00 buck / deer slug / 00 buck. The idea is, this will be able to deal with either human aggressors or with an angry bear, equally well. Even if the human aggressor is wearing body armor, it should knock them down hard and stop the threat....

Re: Bug Out Wedding Ring.

I'm not married but I have a few bug out wedding rings. When I see a heavy gold band in a pawn shop that's the right size and close to the spot value of the metal I occasionally buy them. My thought is that if I carry a few of them in a bag in, along with the purchase receipts, I have something of v...

Re: HK33K's photos

No photos here but Pat was very generous with me back in the day. We would occasionally trade PMs back and forth on some of my post sample builds and once he sent me a small box of the right stripper clips for the Sa-26 I welded together. A great guy with a very nice collection.

Re: Body Armor

Honestly I would be surprised if the SAPI or ESAPI were stand alone, the soldiers load issues alone would make in conjunction plates make a lot more sense. I don't feel comfortable saying one way or the other because policy requires it be worn complete, soft armor and hard plates. Given the issues w...

Re: Body Armor

Sorry triggerhappy2006 but you are mistaken. Level IIIa is the heaviest rating for soft armor, Level III is the lighter hard armor (rifle rated). From there there are other factors to take into account. Some hard plates are stand alone, meaning that they require no other protection to meet their lis...

Sure you can. I'm not going to be the guy who tells you how, but there's plenty of plans out there to see how it's done. The problem is that most experimenting and or testing you would do to assure it is safe and effective to use then, would be illegal now. Learning modern muzzle loading would prob...

Re: The Fallacy of Bugging Out

Well... That was mostly crap. I suppose I could craft an argument that is so narrowly defined that I could end up offering 'proof' to a stupid idea. Then again, maybe we just aren't using the same definition to some of our key terms. To me 'bugging out' implies leaving one location for a second, pre...

Re: How did you get your start in the firearms industry?

I guess I got my start by knowing more than the counter staff at the shops I frequented. One day the manager followed me out into the parking lot and asked I was interested in a job. The owner of the indoor range offered me a job in much the same way. When people saw me working on my own guns they a...

Re: Thinking about 300 blackout

The conversion will require a little more than a barrel change but not by much. Chances are you will need a new gas tube (shorter) and possibly a new buffer. You may well need to buy some new powders for reloading too but that depends on what you want to load and what you have now. Negative, the ba...

Re: Thinking about 300 blackout

CitizenZ hit on the biggest advantage as far as I'm concerned, industry support. With a big name behind load and product development it has a lot of support behind it. Most ammunition manufacturers have either introduced loads or announced an intent to do so. The growing interest in NFA and specific...

Re: Mossberg MVP Range Report

Why would you want a bolt action in 300 aac /whisper? Go .308 win bolt action and get subsonic ammo or load your own. Same bullets in the same weights and you also have a better all around cartridge in the super sonic range too. I'd be more impressed with a suppressed 30-30. My first thought is 'go...

Re: suppresssors

Actually having damaged hearing might mean you choose a louder suppressor thinking it's quieter. If shooting is the cause of your hearing loss you will have damage in the high frequency range. Not hearing noises in that frequency range may well skew your perceptions and have you choose a second rate...
