    coastie, here is a thread I did on sling mounting options.Sounds like you got a nice rig for
    the $500, all of mine were $450 or so, but I didn't get a decent scope, any reloading gear, or
    any good mag...

    My results with .308 bullets in a bore that is .310.5" turned out better than expected. was
    pretty good, but velocities were a couple hundred feet slower using the same charges that I use
    in my .311 ...

    I now have 3 older Mini-30's, all are 189 series made 1989-1990.I got two of them for $450 and
    the first set me back $400. All very in nice shape, the latest one appeared to be unfired. Two
    of them ca...

    It would seem having a divot, or dimple for the set screw to dig into would be the best to tie
    the strut into the gas block. Loctite would prevent the screws from loosening, but doesn't seem
    to be as ...

    Hey, thanks for the advice. What is an accustrut and how does it work ?The Accustrut is the rod
    that clamps under the barrel, seen on my green/tan Mini-14, and the wood stock.wood hand guard
    Mini-30 i...

    My M&P's, and Scandium .45 ACP. daughter, who is pretty petite, doesn't like to shoot my
    1911's, but likes to shoot the 325PD. I think the 325PD is a lot "snappier" than the 1911's.

  • Posted in thread: Ruger P345 on 01-23-2017 at 01:25 PM
    I know this is an old thread, but I am a new member. I purchased a P345 new in 2007. Many
    rounds fired through this unit w/never a malfunction. Almost traded in once and am glad I
    didn't as I shoot it...

    sheriffjohn, that "pencil" barrel" 180 series needs an Accustrut. You'd be amazed at how much
    improvement a strut will make on the pencil barrel Mini's.The best optics mount for the older
    non ranch Mi...

    I second the Mini, but would recommend sticking with one in 7.62 x 39 cal.I now have three of
    them, eventually all of them will have the Burris FastFire dot.Of the three, only my newest one
    on the rig...

  • Posted in thread: 7.62x39mm hunting ammo on 01-10-2017 at 10:30 AM
    Pretty much. I load from a few grains under max and increase 2 or 3 tenths of a grain at a
    time, 5 shots in each test group, till I get to max. Checking for velocity, accuracy and signs
    of excess pres...

My brother has a ranch in Montana, and I would wear out all the MC-1-1's I could get. Be safe.
