  1. Preferred 5.56 SBR length

    10.5, because it's a SHORT barreled rifle... A quality barrel and adjustable gas block will negate any reliability concerns vs 11.5 or 12.5. The flash, noise, or unpleasantness will be affected more by your choice of ammunition and muzzle device than that 2" of barrel.
  2. 308 Rem 700 1:11 1/4 twist 24 in

  3. Comparing Smiths

    I'll use the SEMA car analogy. A custom car is built, to the average person who isn't a complete car nut, it's a beautiful show car. But it was pushed off a trailer, it doesn't drive, it doesn't even start. "Bluetooth ignition system" "Bluetooth drive shaft" "Bluetooth brake lines." Yes, it's...
  4. Comparing Smiths

    Personally, I'm looking at who they market their work to. Is it a guy that wants a premium safe queen, or a guy that will shoot tens of thousands of rounds a year in competition?
  5. PRS Rimfire noob thread

    I'm sure you meant to link to an F1 NX8 model. The one you linked is a 2nd focal plane. Anyway I am completely satisfied with the choice I made when I purchased my Leica. I've had the opportunity to look through or shoot with all of the top of the line scope options. They each have their...
  6. PRS Rimfire noob thread

    I'm sure those NF models are wonderful for the use you mentioned, bench rest 100/200, but they are not good examples for PRS use. We need to accurately shoot using the reticle subtensions at various distances and therefore require first focal plane scopes. Additionally, 1/8MOA is far to fine...
  7. G19 Gen 3 lower parts kit, suggestions

    I came across a bent striker in one of these dirt cheap parts kits. I was helping a dude diagnose a stripped frame build that wouldn't run, I don't remember the name brand, if it even had one, or where he got it from. I would recommend factory parts, the out is pretty adorable Glock...
  8. What did you do in the reloading room recently?

    I sorted a bucket of practice / match take home brass and have 9mm running in the tumblers
  9. Dillon 650 vs 750

    The index arm spring (11) wears quickly or even breaks - about 10k rounds is probably the most I got out of one, under 1k for the least. The relationship of the Disc (15) and the index arm (6) wear and produce occasional and difficult to diagnose disc advancement. You can flip the disc every...
  10. Dillon 650 vs 750

    I do prefer the 750 primer system. Its not completely without its own unique problems though. There is no performance or reliability increase when going from a 650 to 750, arguably there is an extra safety measure though (650 has exposed primers in the carousel) Like already said, I would...
  11. PRS Rimfire noob thread

    Most will say they use 10-15x in a match. The extra magnification is great for zeroing/ shooting groups. With just about any scope on the market, the higher you are in it's magnification range, the less forgiving the eye relief and eye box becomes. Also consider how easily you can see the...
  12. PRS Rimfire noob thread

    Since last update of this thread there has been some discussion in the various local match threads. I painted my chassis, just a rattlecan job so it isn't another all black rifle on the rack We continued to host matches at my club in August, September and October. I participated in matches...
  13. What did you do in the reloading room recently?

    What sort of malfunction? My 147g load at 130ish PF shoots fantastic, but us sometime too light to cycle a gun with a factory recoil spring. It really depends on the gun, some run on factory spring, some need a lighter spring. The malfunction encountered will be (weak) ejection of empty...

    7 divisions at a Glock match.... (Are there more available?) And people say USPSA is watered down with too many divisions
  15. What did you do in the reloading room recently?

    Works best on a Dillon progressive where primers are seated at the top of the handle stroke: When your bucket of 45 brass is about 50/50, you set your press up to load small primers. At the primer seating station you will feel no resistance, remove and set aside the large primer piece of...
