    Strangest Firearm Acquisitions

    I bought a drilling in 16X8.6 from a fellow that was a distant relative through marriage after the gun shop offered him $200.00. I gave him $300.00. It's probably worth $10,000. Greg

    Secret Knock Means Goodies

    Supply hunting is like fishing. Honey holes exist but they aren't rampant. I've learned where they are in the shooting world. Greg

    Secret Knock Means Goodies

    Because all my loads with 69 grain bullets were developed with them. I've never worked with the tipped version as there are better pills that got my attention that were heavier. I looked upon 69's as something used occasionally back in the old days but they shoot so well that they make nice little groups in so many barrels they are basically a gold standard. Greg

    Secret Knock Means Goodies

    I shot my last 223 SMK's several months ago and wanted to try some more. Sierra seemed to only want to put out the tipped versions so I had to wait. They appeared locally so I placed an internet order. I got a message from a RESTRICTED number and was told that my bullets were in. I made the 10 mile drive and puled up to this nondescript non-government installation. Notice the table and the partially opened roll up door. I walked over and gave it my best, "I'm from the government and I'm here to help you " LOUD knock and announced my self. Directly some very nice looking hands slid a receipt and the bullets under the door with a cheery Thank You. I got them home and after the long dry spell am flush again after making additions to my inventory Range day on Thursday after a very long three months of waiting. Greg

    coating raw lower with Aluma Hyde

    I'm lazy. I'd call Brownells and talk with one of their Tech staff on this one. I'm sure this is a common concern. Greg

    5.56/.223 rem vs. .223 Wylde Recommendations

    The Wylde chamber was designed by a shooter that wanted the 223 accuracy edge and still use 556. Several national records with it in the HP world. The Wylde chamber we use is not SAAMI so grinders do all sorts of different specs on it. Some just take a 556 and just lengthen the lead slightly and walls a new WYLDE is born. Like 308/7.62X51 the 223 family is all over the place. There must be over half a dozen 308 chamber variations. Greg PS : Thanks for this question. It has made me clear some mental cobwebs out on it. It also let me refress my memories on the origin of the 222.

    5.56/.223 rem vs. .223 Wylde Recommendations

    Either Wylde or 566 have both performed very well for me. Since I handload 95% of what I shoot everything is tailored to the specific chamber. I can assure you that just because it is stamped 223 or 556 not all same stamped barrels are the same from company to company. I have many same manufactured barrels with same designation that allow for many variables of head space and distance to lands. For your goals with factory ammo the Wylde would be a good choice. If you custom load it will be a close call between them and even then even barrels built side by side will shoot differently. I've seen this on parallel testing several times on several custom chamberings comparing my results with same same loading done by myself and my gun building partner. Greg

    My opinion may not be your opinion.......

    Nothing wrong with the current guns. The FBOP bought a ton of Berrettas back in the late 90's - early 2000's. They kept them a couple years and then went back to the Rugers. They were some special deal whipped up for them that had cracking slides and various and sundry issues. I only got that through one of our firearms guys out of GLYNCO. We never had them at FCI Phoenix for our staff so could not speak directly to it. I have the Taurus copy in my safe. It's a serviceable gun but ergonomically will never be in my lists of favorites. I tend to run to the slightly more slender and elegant looking guns. I will say though that given a have to choice I sure wouldn't turn my nose up. Enjoy the shooting and hopefully none of the cows have bovine TB!! Greg
