    Seriously contemplating wasting a mag or two of ammo on paper. Even though the wind is running about 40 mph .

    Good man! Much smoother right?

    Does your latch not lock into place all the way if you ride the bolt? And it does when you let the bolt go?

    Just curious, that’s how mine works.

    Ah back in with my windblown self from burning a mag of 223 and a few 45 acp rounds doing strong to weak side conversions and rifle to pistol and back drills.

    May clean the pistol tonight as it hasn't been for a while. Probably wont the Ar though. Not put enough rds through it since last time to warrant breaking it down yet.
    Its reloaded now and ready to defend hearth and home. And puppy dog.

    Did some light cleaning to it and partially detail cleaning as well. It was a lot dirtier/filthier then I thought. Also cleaned my other guns while I was at it.

    I was gonna do it later this year or next year but since it was a sunny day, had plenty of time on my hands, might as well get it knocked out before the cold sets in.

    So I had fun doing that. :)

    Been swapping optics around on some guns.
    Put my spare Sightron SIII 6-24x50 on my Savage 10 FCP 308, then took the night vision scope of the 6.5x6.8 AR-15 and installed the Weaver Super Slam 3-15x50 that I took off the Savage 308.
    I ordered a Delta Stryker HD 4.5-30x56 scope the other day, so I took the Athlon Ares BTR 4.5-27x56 off my Custom 7mm-08 bolt action, and put it on my DPMS LR-260H AR.
    I also put a Bushnell Nitro 4-16x44 for my Savage 93 22 magnum bolt action.

    Sitting here looking at my brand new 16" BCA upper in 350 Legend and my new Anderson stripped lower wondering when or if PSA is ever going to ship the lower build kit I ordered over a week ago...

    As for mods, the only thing that I have right now is a Fab Defense Gradus pistol grip on the way.

    Spent the last couple of days researching reflex sights. I think for the price, I'm leaning hard toward the Sightmark Ultra Shot M-Spec. All the reviews and torture tests look good. Has very little parallax out to at least 100 yards and at $199, it's a deal. I don't have the budget for an EOTech holo or the Vortex UH-1 holo.

    Tell ya what I use on my BCA 350 Legend. I went to Walmart and bought a 4-16 power Center Point scope. These 76 year old eyes are extremely
    accurate with that scope. Think it was about $69 for the scope. My son has just been using an old shotgun scope he had. Worked better for him than some type of Holo he bought. Grandson has a CP like mine. The other three friends in our hunting group all use a regular style of scope.
    Oh, and have they ever killed the deer with their 350L uppers. All BCA uppers by the way. Some out to 250 yards in an open bean field. Most in woods with shots of 20 to 100 yards.
    These 350L's are a really good SD gun in my opinion.

    Well, I'm not building this as a deer rifle, if you get my drift. Although, I do live close to the Ohio border and should I ever hunt there (possible), I'll have a legal deer rifle.

    I have experience with the reflex/holo sights in a military environment and I've done some competitive action shooting over the years with them. It's my go to for close range multiple target fast shooting.

    Then that's the way you should go. The 350L has multiple uses.

    Why did you go with the 350 Legend instead of the 300 Blackout?

    Two reasons: availability of uppers and ammo, and more thump. If or when things get back to a reasonable normal and things are available, I do want to build one in 300 BO too.

    I can understand that approach. I selected the 350L for similar reasons.

    350 is much more versatile than 300 blackout. The blackout is ballistically about the same as 7.62x39.

    Took mine hunting with me the other day, had a lot of fun, didn't see much but we did do a lot of hiking together. Held it vertically and horizontally and vice versa which is normal when your hiking for hours, you got to change how your holding the rifle when you get tired. And since mine is a DMR with its long 15" MLOK handgaurd and 20" barrel, it likes to tangle it self on every bush, vine, branch and tall grass we hiked through lol. Got a good amount of scrapes on the barrel and rifle itself lol. :D

    I sat at the open door to myself looking at my EBR’s and trying to decide which one would be the recipient of my new to me Pentagonlight weapons light.

    Decisions decisions...:p:D:p:D
