    9mm pistol build

    Well, the original plan was to switch my pistol lower between my 300 Blackout pistol upper and 9mm pistol upper. But Noooooooo... Freak'N BRD!!! I had a second Spikes Tactical Crusader lower sitting here in its box. It's not in its box anymore... I had picked up some parts over the past few weeks, so I decided to put everything together tonight. Figure I'll match this lower with the new 9mm upper. That's why I posted it here. Will get a better picture of the pistol assembled in the daylight when I can. Thanks, Glenn

    My LMT New Zealand Rifle Build Journal

    Very nice presentation! You really did your homework on this rifle. Can't wait to see your finished rifle. Are you getting on the "Dark Web" to source a Trijicon ACOG TA31 NZ? Thanks, Glenn

    SBA3 Pistol Brace / Tucked

    I like how that looks tucked up. Think you'll have any long term issues with the rubber cracking if kept in that position? Thanks, Glenn

    Application of LMT Enhanced BCG

    Honestly John, I have no idea if the two were ever connected. Hopefully someone else whom may know will chime in. Thanks, Glenn

    Application of LMT Enhanced BCG

    John, It was LWRC that made the "lobster tail" extractor bolt that copied the LMT. LMT enhanced bolt. LWRC advanced combat bolt. I picked up a few of the LWRC bolts for my 6.8 SPC rifles. Brownells has them on sale for $55.00. They are normally $100.00. Was able to get extra springs and extractors when they went on sale from LWRC. Have them in all three of my 6.8 SPC rifles and my TAC 30, 6.8 SPC wildcat. They work. Thanks, Glenn

    New cartridge, Wilson Combat 300 HAM'R.

    Well Wilson Combat is the only one making barrels for the 300 HAM'R right now. So you may be S.O.L. As to your M1A SOCOM. Why are you feeding it that stuff.... My Lean & Mean SOCOM 16 gets fed good stuff to keep it fit & trim. I hand load bullets made for a 16" 7.62X51. The MK319 MOD 0 130 gr. OTMRP is what the military designed for the 16" SCAR. Also load Lapua 123 gr. FMJ's, which are the most accurate FMJ I have ever shot. MK319 MOD 0; left, Lapua 123 gr. FMJ; Right. And to get good accuracy with open sights. I did this to the front brick they call a sight. If I do my part, my SOCOM 16 will shoot 1.25 to 1.5 inch groups at 100 yards with open sights and handloads. There are other 30 caliber wildcats you can also try for the AR-15 platform. Black Hole Weaponry makes the American 30 cartridge and AR15 Performance makes the TAC 30. Both are 6.8 SPC based wildcats that can get a 125 gr. projectile into the 2700 fps range with an 18" barrel. I'm shooting the TAC 30 now. Thanks, Glenn

    New cartridge, Wilson Combat 300 HAM'R.

    Actually Wilson Combat is fully supporting this cartridge. So you can buy cartridges from them. But Reloading will give you the best bang for the buck! Watching how the guys are using their AR's for hog hunting at night is what I think this cartridge is best for. These guys are taking multiple shots in running hogs. If you reload the cartridge, it is quite economical for that type of hunting. I can't reload my 6.8 SPC or TAC 30 for that cost. Thanks, Glenn

    9mm pistol build

    Range Day! Finally! Broke in the 9mm AR pistol. The EndoMags worked out well. Used all three to check them out. Since this is a new build I started with Fiocchi and Winchester White box 115 gr FMJ's. Figure I'd run them while getting sighted in, At 50 yards. Put one hundred rounds through her today. Even shot some of my 115 gr. JHP reloads. Left to right; Winchester, Fiocchi, 115 gr. JHP from RMR Bullets, 115 Gr. JHP manufactured by Choctaw Defense. So the Faxon 9mm BCG is working fine. I did install a 6.0 oz. SS extended 9mm buffer. This keeps the BCG from too much over travel. Of course this thing is easy to shoot because of the low recoil. I'm going to have to go to confessional now because this thing is more fun to shoot than the Law allows. So all in all, the Mean Arms EndoMag is a viable choice for someone who may already have an AR pistol lower and wants to switch out uppers. Again, your going to have to see if the Endomag is compatible with the BCG you have or get. Will have to see on the longevity of the EndoMag. These things are relatively new, so time will tell. Thanks, Glenn

    So, Who Is At The Bench Today?

    That's why I said interesting. Most of my MidwayUSA look like the ones I posted. Go figure... Thanks, Glenn

    So, Who Is At The Bench Today?

    Interesting... Midway; left. Everglades; right. Both have the same staining. They are shiny though. Thanks, Glenn

    So, Who Is At The Bench Today?

    Any of you guys looking for some 30 Caliber MK319 MOD 0 projectiles. Was perusing some of the reloading sites I buy from and found them at Everglades Ammo. It appears to be from the same lot they had in 2015. Must have been stashed in the warehouse somewhere. Staining on the bullets look to be the same as the ones I got from MidwayUSA. But it will clen up. MidwayUSA had a great introductory price back then and then hiked the price up after a week or so. Pissed a few people off! Everglades has these on clearance in boxes of 100 for $29.50. Back in 2015 the price was $37.00 for a box of 100. Not as cheap as MidwayUSA had them for, but I consider the clearance price reasonable considering how hard it is to get these. Here is the link if your interested; https://www.evergladesammo.com/clearance-closeout/30-cal-130gr-bullets-100-pack-clearance.html Had to get a few boxes myself to supplement my stock. Can't say how much they have. But they are in stock at the time of this post. Thanks, Glenn
