  1. I get emails from Davidson Defense almost every day. For the most part I ignore them. Well this morning I saw they have a billet upper now. It doesn't have a forward assist or case deflector. Do any of you have experience with their billet uppers? How tight were the tolerances? How was the finish? Thanks. Sent from my VS880 using Tapatalk
  2. I'm still using Dupont(IMR) powders and Winchester-Western primers from the 70's. Sent from my VS880 using Tapatalk
  3. This lot's burn rate turned out to be between some older IMR-4198 and newer H322. It meters exceptionally well in my Dillon measure. So far I am very pleased with it. Sent from my VS880 using Tapatalk
  4. I finally staked the castle nut. My Armalte isn't. I thought about using Loctite. I figured they must have used it. It could also be torque though. I hope this is good enough. I staked it in two places. Sent from my VS880 using Tapatalk
  5. I went with a PSA kit on the first one. I loved the polished sear. I wasn't expecting that. I still need to stake the cadtle nut. This thing is WAY easier to assemble than an M1 carbine, Stevens 311, or an M14 trigger group. I was shocked by the simplicity. I'm glad Stoner believed in KISS. Sent from my VS880 using Tapatalk
  6. Done that. The problem is all of the contradictions. I have found data that states WC 842 is equivalent to H335, and not equivalent to H335. I have found data that says to use H322 data for WC 842, and followed by warnings against doing it. There is also the use CFE 223 data reduced by 20% for WC 842, and the stuff warning against it. The only thing I'm sure of is to use WC 842 data reduced by 20%. I'm thinking it may be a ball equivalent to 4198. Sent from my VS880 using Tapatalk
  7. I recently bought 8 pounds of MP 842. Before I bought it I verified I could find data. Well, me being a genius, I lost my sheet. Now, I can't find ANY online data. I'm not asking for your recipes. I'm asking if anyone has a link to some online data. Sent from my VS880 using Tapatalk
  8. I just bought a stripped Anderson lower. I'm looking for a lower parts kit, preferably with FCG. So far I have found about two dozen sites with kits. If you can tell me, where is a good source for a complete kit with good parts. At some point in the future I'll be swapping the trigger out, but for now I just want milspec parts. Thanks in advance.

  9. WOW three 300's? I have one, and keep hoping I'll catch a deal on eBay and snag another 300, or 450 for $150.00 or less. An RL300 sold on there in Feb for around $130.00. It came with the powder measure and priming system. Sent from my VS880 using Tapatalk
  10. My mind. If there is a way to do it, I can usually come up with something. Thank God for the human brain. Second most favorite tool is my Lyman Cast Bullet Handbook 2nd edition. Sent from my VS880 using Tapatalk
  11. There are several YouTube videos on converting berdan to boxer. I do it when I make 410 brass from FREE 303 cases. I don't get doing it with 223 though. It's not like they're hard to find. Sent from my VS880 using Tapatalk
  12. I always thought the powder Hodgdon started with was surplus 4895. Later in either the late 50's or early sixties, he got his hands on Ball C. I thought Ball C lot 2 came about around 63. By the way, I have seen pictures of early Hodgdon powder bags. Yep, it was sold in small paper bags, at one time. Sent from my VS880 using Tapatalk
  13. Before you start depriming brass, inspect it. The instructions will be in your manuals. Shine a light in the cases and look to see if they are Berdan or Boxer primed. Sent from my VS880 using Tapatalk
  14. I just use it on the case mouth. I use a primer pocket reamer to do the primer pockets. Sent from my VS880 using Tapatalk
