    Gun Vises

    If I'm not mistaken, John plans to use it for more than just AR's. In the OP he mentioned an M1A.

    I screwed up....a little. It's Hyskore, not Hyscore. They've been out for several years now, so there are a lot of videos on YouTube that might be worth investigating.
  3. The last two recessions were government caused....so why should this one be any different?

    Thoughts to live by.

    I've seen that list before, and I always add a few others to it. Just because you can, doesn't mean that you should. When you have a horse on the end of a 6ft lead rope, the horse has a human on the end of a 6ft lead rope. A sharp knife cuts quickest and hurts less. Don't step in a hole you can't see the bottom of. You can eat just as much taking smaller bites. Every time a sheep blats it loses a mouthful. Every time you're ahead in a rat race, a faster rat will soon come along. And one of my favorites is a quote from Napoleon: Never interrupt your enemy while he's making a mistake.

    My First AR-15 Build

    I keep a 2" long ¼" clevis pin with one hole in it in my toolbox. It doesn't need to have multiple holes. That said, a lot of new LPK forward pins have a hole in them for the same reason, and I haven't needed to use my clevis pin for a while.

    For about the same $ as Tipton, check out Hyscore vises. I haven't used one, but I'm looking at them too.

    Ar Shooting right

    Is it a flattop with an add-on carry handle? Or are they rail mounted flip-up sights?

    Deciding new rifle Help!

    Built my 10½" on a Core15 receiver. Works like Jack the Bear! https://smallarmsreview.com/display.article.cfm?idarticles=202

  10. The take-offs aren't generally too bad, but the landings can be a b¡tch!

    Deciding new rifle Help!

    Nothing faster than 1:8. Actually, 1:10 is fast enough for most .308 bullets in normal rifle length barrels, so 1:8 in pistol length barrels for heavy subs is plenty fast. It's not like you're having to stabilize 'em for any long distance.

    So, Who Is At The Bench Today?

    Let me preface this report with the fact that I'm only a ½MOA shooter on a good day, and I don't have a comparator (yet). I'll order one this week. Anyway, I had to start by finding the lands with this bullet, then make adjustments based on COL. According to my examination, loading right to the lands would have my COL @ 2.985". I decided that since I had zero load data to start with, I'd pick a node that was good with the 140gr Match Burners that was also under the MAX recommended for Hornady 147 ELD-M's, and then load a seating depth ladder. I chose a nominal load of 42.6gr of StaBall, then put together a 3-shot/ea ladder from 2.975" to 2.963" in .03" increments. Velocities weren't as high as I know I can comfortably achieve, but that was a given from the start. Turned out that the highest velocity and smallest ES/SD numbers also produced the tightest group in the test. (shooting @ 100yds) Seems these pills like a decent amount of jump, but not crazy. The best of the afternoon was 2.966" COL @ AV 2669FPS. Second best was 2.963" COL @ AV 2663FPS. I've still got some work ahead of me to find a higher node, but at least I have a baseline to start from now, and I'm pretty happy with the results so far.

    I started sneezing just watching this...

    Reminds me of the last time I was camping in Florida. Within minutes after you parked your car you could write your name in the pollen.
