    Correct , our state gun laws are the exact same as federal gun laws as of right now . This law was designed to unsure they don't become stricter even if Fed laws get worse . Of course FBI background checks and such will stay in force . Sent from my LM-K920 using Tapatalk

    It's now law . Missouri Governor signed the bill into law today . Law enforcement officers who assist feds in inforcing anti second amendment laws will be fined and possibly jailed . Sent from my LM-K920 using Tapatalk

    I don't know about the economics or profit margin but he has been saleing them for a few years at about the same prices as Barnes bullets . Now they are being offered as a round loaded by Druid Hills at about the same price as Barnes loaded rounds . Hopefully they can stay competitive in price and not go down in quality like Barnes did when Remington took them over . Sent from my LM-K920 using Tapatalk

    Retcop : I have been loading them for a couple of years now . Not knocking Barnes but Cavity back bullets were designed to " fix" the problems Barnes exhibits . mono bullets being long for weight has always meant less room for powder , the cavity makes room . The cavity also moves the balance point forward which helps stabilize the bullet sooner after leaving the barrel and keeps it stable at longer/ lower speeds . Because they are machined he can use more malible metals which perform more consistently . Hog hunters love them . Over on ,Texas Hog Man , X Man and several other hog hunting pages brag on them . I have a video ( through my ATN scope) of two coyotes with one shot Front dog had 1/2 inch entrance 1 1/2 exit went into back dog 1 1/2 enterence 2" exit . I believe if a third was lined up it would have taken it out too. In other words the only thing it is not tops in would be defense in an urban environment. As far as . 223 for deer it has been a 100 yd gun and only with specialty loads like 65 sierra or 60 nosler partition . The 70 grain . 223 makes it a legitimate 200 yd gun . Cavity back is also tops in 300 bo . Their 195 sub has shown to concistantly expand to over an inch out to 500 yards . Their 125 bo is good to 1400 fps . I honestly set out testing them thinking I was going to prove they were a novelty and that they wouldn't live up to the hype but I have come to believe unless over penetration is an issue they are the best bullets available .

    We have taken game and/ or varmints with every 6.8 hunting bullet I know of and CBB is #1 in accuracy overall and terminal performance is great. Big holes and super good penetration . Sent from my LM-K920 using Tapatalk
  6. If it were not for the Rino's and sale outs in the Republican party the whole infringement thing would have been a thing of the past years ago . Praying 2022 sees them out of a job . Sent from my LM-K920 using Tapatalk

    Cavity back bullets just announced they released the long awaited cavity back bullets in a 6.8 factory load today . As of now the 70 grain . 223 bullet is load your own but hopefully it will follow. Sent from my LM-K920 using Tapatalk
  8. We did not have the normal amount this last fall nor spring . Millipedes eat decaying matter while centipedes are bug eaters . A couple of years ago I was under the house thawing out pipes and pulled up a tarp I had left under there and found thousands of the oriental beetles . I'm not sure how many centipedes eat but I would definitely rather have centipedes over beetles. Sent from my LM-K920 using Tapatalk
  9. Pretty much so . Heavy . 308 bullets take up so much case that you can't get enough powder in to get much velocity plus they are designed to expand at higher velocities . The bullet you are looking at is for 1800 and faster so your range would be limited as far as shooting deer . Barnes does make a 110 designed for the BO that expands at low speeds and cavity back bullets offer a 125 grain for bo that is a super good bullet . That said the 110 Barnes and CBB are quite a bit more than these and for the price they will punch paper and dispatch armidello just fine . Sent from my LM-K920 using Tapatalk

    Ammo

    What does " better than " mean ? Accuracy / cheaper / effective on ??? easier on the targets or gun . Also which 55 or 62 grain are you talking about ? TulAmmo and maybe others have 62 grain hollow points that don't have steel ( or any other type ) tip nor green paint. Tul are inexpensive and are fine for blasting away at close range targets and putting down the occasional sick cow . When it comes to 55 grain there are also different types and price ranges. Some are good for varmints or self-defense and some just so - so . Bottom line is the best weight ammo depends on what you plan on shooting with it . If you reload or $$$_ is not a factor you can find a bullet that is accurate , good self defense and a good hunting bullet . If not then buy most bullets for practice/ play and a few boxes for whatever load works for your intended mission . I personally would not have any use for the "green tip" 62 grains unless they were dirt cheap . As others have stated they are rough on steel targets , not very effective on soft targets ( compared to other types ) the tip has a tendency to ricochet to God knows where . Any bullet is better than no bullet !! Sent from my LM-K920 using Tapatalk
  11. I happened to run across 40 large primer 6.8 cases while cleaning my bench today and happened to have a couple hundred large rifle primers that needed a purpose so I decided to play around with some Trail boss and 120 sst bullets . I shot 10 of them out of my 12.5 " (non suppressed ) 6.5 grains of TB . They printed perfectly round going into milk jugs of water and exited sideways . With my linear comp they are almost quite enough to shoot without ear protection . I didn't have a purpose for them in mind but I'm thinking they might be fun to shoot the occasional armidello that gets too close to the house . Sent from my LM-K920 using Tapatalk
  12. Yes the crimping die can be ordered separate . I prefer Lee over the others . A slight crimp with the Lee collet crimper does more than just keep the bullet from moving in mag or when slammed into the chamber . Cases neck tension varies from case to case but a light to medium crimp reduces the difference greatly . Myself and others have noticed less deviation in velocity between shots when crimped .

  13. The 3 rd die is for crimping and some of us never load supersonic without it Sent from my LM-K920 using Tapatalk
  14. They are coming back slowly . I recently paid $100 a brick for cci450 . Lgs will only let you have 1 a month per family when he has it because he said some were buying it just to scalp others with it . Sent from my LM-K920 using Tapatalk
