Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

Re: SOG Southern Ohio Guns is history

I dealt with SOG for a long time and it was all good. AIM is my new SOG, they treat me very well and have a lot of stuff that I'm interested in.

Re: AK-74 800 yard target damage

Fascinating stuff. I remember reading or reading about Hatcher's experiments with penetration long distance vs/ close and the similar results. I don't recall him testing steel, but I bet he did.

Well you have motivated me to do my own testing, let's see if I get a chance to do it before spring.....

Re: AK-74 800 yard target damage

Here's a pic of some fairly new steel, targets I had made for some classes I'm involved in. They are 9/16" AR500, I had a couple made for myself in the same order of ten targets. At this point the class targets have about 2K rounds each on them.... I think. We make sure no one is using M855, not so ...

Re: AK-74 800 yard target damage

Very interesting and surprising too, as I have not experienced that kind of target damage on AR500 with 7n6. Interesting too to learn that there are hardness variances in the steel core depending upon the country of origin; I have used Russian, Bulgarian and Ukrainian.... I have not gone beyond 500 ...

Re: Interesting Gun Failures

In the latest Guns & Ammo AR15 special, there is an article by me about one of the easiest and surest ways to blow up your AR15, or anything else chambered in 5.56 for that matter-- chamber and fire a .300 Whisper / Blackout in it. The bullet will often stick in the barrel. When it's a .308 diameter...

Re: 175 gr Nosler RDF bullets

I'm sure it would be good stuff for X55. I have used the 178 Amax and 175 Sierra SMK for Mexican Match in 7.5 and both work very well. In my limited experience with GP11 ammo the accuracy limiter is the bullet..... at least in my rifle. Pull the bullet and replace with either one mentioned and flyer...

Re: CUSTOM BULLET MOLD

Well the "donor" mold was for a round ball that was a little smaller than the bullet Ray wanted, so I had it easy there. And the shape of the new bullet was very simple, ball nosed with a slightly larger diameter at the shank so it looked like the 150-grain .45 ACP wadcutter, but of about .75 calibe...

Re: CUSTOM BULLET MOLD

OLDGUNNER, I've been enjoying your posts. I recently retasked an existing mold for my friend Ray Ordorica, for one of his double rifles. He gave me mold dimensions that would allow of paper patching, which he has done quite a bit of over the years. He wrote about it in The American rifleman in 1978:...

Article about this gun on page 84. Looks like SWAT Magazines is no longer charging for the PDF's.

Re: Lets see those Czech pistols

Can a $300 pistol be worth putting several times that in custom work? I guess that's up to the individual but this individual thought so and so did I..... I really like the CZ 83, especially in 9mm MAK. It's very large for its caliber but that's what some people need. or maybe it's all they have or ...

Re: Sterling Sporters

I have a PPS-43 mag coming. Looks like easier to modify and it's a two-position feeder which ought to be better but-- the modified PPSh-41 mag has worked without issue.

The Romanian surplus ammo is pretty dirty and seems more corrosive than most corrosive.

Re: Sterling Sporters

So this particular gun is known for not working very well-- mostly due to the fact that the supplied magazines (in the 7.62 version) were STEn mags with the back rib milled out and a plate welded on-- making room for the longer cartridge. My first thought was just rebarrel it to 9mm and use real Ste...

Re: How desirable is 9mm largo?

I bought, I think, 500 rounds of this in the late 80's, thinking I might use it as cheap practice fodder in my .38 Super IPSC gun, which I did. I had to run them through the seater to push the bullets in maybe 1/32 deeper. I also made a little stab crimp tool to recrimp them after this. Note, pushin...
