    So, Who Is At The Bench Today?

    Yesterday was a good one. I started out and made up ten exemplar 6.8 wildcat cases and got them sent off to a company that makes cut off tools. They make quite a few variations but 6.8 is a hole in their line up. I was amazed at the amount of tooling it took to do the cases in only two variations. I ended up using four sets of dies, a deburring tool and my calipers. Of course I had to pul the dies off the tool head to have room to work. IO could have done it with one less set of dies but I found that the RCBS version of my 30 Herretts seemed to ripple the necks on expansion and had to run them back through the Hornady fror a better looking neck. The RCBS button is more squared off and you could actuality feel how it was grabbing and skating inside the neck. The Hornady with its elliptical button is butter smooth when expansion is taking place and is much more aesthetically pleasing. Score one for the Hornady. This morning I'm doing my NFL impression. I'm starting to go under the hood to crunch the targets from this week's session at the range. I'm really looking forward to seeing how the same same loads worked out in the Grendel. I do know there was some very educational numbers at a glance on comparison on speeds that will be fun to evaluate and a great teaching moment. Greg

    I always have fun finding places that want to make new products. The guys that are owners are always easy to work with. Greg

    I have a boatload of data to try as my TAC and PRAC are the same size on capacity. One large and one small reamer make for a match. Tolerances in these cases make for interesting load swap..LOL Greg

    So, Who Is At The Bench Today?

    Today I start crunching numbers from my Wednesday range trip with the 17-223 and 6.5 Grendel. The 17 showed some real promise and the Grendel improved somewhat over the first trip.. I need to sort through a small back of range brass I picked up and get some of it polishing tomorrow. I had an indoor range session yesterday so I have 175 45 ACP cases to clean and a bunch of 9 MM my friend shot. so that will take a bit. I am getting back to wasting the paper indoors aging so need to increase the range back to 25 yards and start over with the basics and then turn the wick up. I did shoot some accuracy only, no speed, right handed yesterday and was very gratified to see that my new glasses had sharpened up my front sight focus. It really helped. I am looking at the 20 Practical to load and will maybe tackle that this weekend. Tuesday I contacted a company that makes trimming tools and they have asked me to help them on setting up so they can make a 6.8 cut off jig. 6.8 jigs are not very common on the net and I believe there is a good market for them. Today after I get off line I'll make up some dummy cases so they can see what is needed and understand the process of massaging some of these for our 6.8 based shortened wildcats. No delivery date on the new tool but when they come out I'll spread the word and show some pics of mine. Greg

    7.62x39 to .223

    You could do that but at the price of things now just buy a complete upper and have the ability to switch back and forth. Greg

    Range Time.

    Congratulations in getting here interest up. It is nice when they support the cause. I met mine at a pistol match so she was already into handguns and got into 3Gun later competing in the Nationals even. Now she doesn't shoot much but when she does go that skill shows up. She supports my habit a great deal. I causally mentioned I was wanting an AK47 and she asked me why didn't I just go but it. I am looking!! LOL The other day I was cleaning the garage and found about 120 rounds of 30-30. Heck I've never owned a 30-30 and mentioned to her I need to buy a rifle. She asked me to wait a month since we just bought glasses and the play money was a bit low. I'm looking!! LOL Keep her going to the range and then build her a nice AR. Get some pics of her smiling when you get her to the range with the new one. Greg

    How do you clean here?

    I use brake cleaner spray for gross contamination. I use foaming cleaners and then a 45 patch with Shooters Choice on a slotted jag for a final clean. I'm not overly scrupulously on the barrel/bolt crease. Greg
