I second the Mini, but would recommend sticking with one in 7.62 x 39 cal.I now have three of

on the rig...

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...

Thanks. Some of my guns have never seen factory ammo. If I don't reload for that caliber when I
get a new firearm, it's usually not long before I gather up dies and components to load it.My
GSR is ano...

I don't hunt, only shoot targets. Personal experience with the 7.62 USSR -- the POI varies

There are a lot of $500 AR's around. There are a lot of KIA's and Hyundai's around, too but

BUIS, free float...

Posted in thread: AR-15 bolt not closing the whole way. on 12-29-2016 at 01:08 PM
One thing that would hinder the bolt closing would be that the bit of gas tube sticking out
above the chamber could be bent. It can be accidentally pushed over when cleaning, etc. Remove

Chainfire, the Mini-30's legend of inaccuracy is just that, legend not reality.Most people seem

Turns out the scroll work on the bottom of the grip frame was factory done on all the New
Frontier .22's and Peacemaker .22's. Some guys said one of their Colt .22's had the stamp
