    is reached at 1.4 inches. is the same load with a 24 inch barrel. Note that peak pressure is
    also reach...

    if it is currently a rifle you will need a tex stamp from the batfe for a short barrel rifle to
    chop it shorter than 16". if you get the stamp and take a hacksaw to it the accuracy will be

    Barrel length has Nothing to do with Chamber pressure, Nothing.Even if it did, you obviously do

    fired in 5.5...

    I've always been a tightwad, not cheap but tight. I only have about 500 rounds through my S&W
    AR15 Sport but so far, it's been flawless and as accurate as my brothers $1200 Colt AR. You can
    spend a wh...

    the remington 110 is a complete skip in my opinion.ive got a 930 spx and have had issues with
    the extension tube. ive since replaced it with a quality unit and its been flawless. the 930 is
    a very goo...
