  1. Just finished up the Valkyrie and gonna have a shoot-off against the 22 Nosler I did a while back. Nothing scientific... I'll get them both zeroed in, start throwing rounds downrange and see what happens. Sent from my SM-N960U1 using Tapatalk

    Strike Industries Enhanced LPK GTG?

    Except for the trigger, SI enhanced lpk's are all I use nowadays. Good quality and good looking. Sent from my SM-N960U1 using Tapatalk
  3. Many years ago as a field artillery surveyor, mils were the angular unit we used. All of our theodolites (no GPS back then!) were graduated in mils which were so much easier to work with than the 360 DMS system I had to learn when moving into geodetic and topographic work.

  4. Nice! That A1 clone is giving me flashbacks though.....sandfleas, long walks in the sand........!!
  5. This!! I just finished up a 450 Bush build. Lot's of fun.....and "thump!" Now I just have to find a rear sight that stays put and doesn't whack me on the forehead as it flies off every other shot!

    Primary arms

    A great price. BCA themselves had them on sale for $119 a couple of weeks ago.
  7. Oh no....you're not making me spend money today. I fell for the last BCG deal from PSA!

    Where does your brass land?

    I like it when they ask me to reach in there and get it out!
  9. Dang it....just too tempting....I went and ordered one! I've been wanting to do another build of some sort anyway.

    Side Charging AR15's

    Yes, you're right. That upper isn't dual charging and I didn't think to go back and grab the plug when I saw that. They look to be in stock so I can order one up. Would have been a little gas to the face I imagine! Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk

    Side Charging AR15's

    Here's the couple I did. First one is a 300 Blackout with Primary Arms red dot. The upper is Bear Creek, but I must have got the BCG elsewhere since it's NiB and I don't believe they have any NiBs. Second one is a 5.56... it's got a Bear Creek BCG for sure. I'd like to build another one in 204 Ruger, but that's a long term project. Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk

    Side Charging AR15's

    I built a couple of side chargers, one 5.56 and one 300 BO, using Bear Creek side charger parts. I've had no problems with either. I got both sets while they were running the BCG/Upper combo sale at $125.

    .45 GAP?

    Yesterday I took a trip to a gun show in a small town about 90 miles from me. While there I also stopped by the only gun shop in town and lo and behold he had 45 GAP on the shelf... Speer Gold Dot in both 185 and 200 grain loadings. Also told me that there were a couple of other guys that came in for it every once in a while and since the shop was just getting into custom ammo manufacturing he would have the capability to load batches for us if we took at least 500 rounds at a time. Guess the word of the GAP's demise hasn't made it to Alaska yet. Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk

    .45 GAP?

    I have a Glock 37. It was an LEO trade-in that looks like it never went out in the field....no holster wear, very little wear from shooting. I initially bought it because I'm a sucker for oddball stuff like that and it fit the hole in my ever expanding Glock collection. Since my LGS had several boxes of ammo I decided to give it a try at the range and found it to be a very accurate and pleasant shooting caliber out of the 37. I have a rather small hand and find the Glock 45 ACP's to be too big to grip comfortably. I have not yet compared it side-by-side to my 1911, but want to do so here soon. The LGS says he can still get as much ammo as I want from Federal and Speer, and I also picked up the dies for it so I'm not too worried about running out anytime soon. Maybe I'll look around for a 38 and 39 now!

    'Right to Bear Arms' current sale.

    Toolcraft are very good. They're about all I use nowadays.
