hmmmm, Ill have to give it a shot. Hell if its around 50% savings, itd be worth it. I could handle $10/box of 50

If you only have to bend over once to pick it up it's a good landing.

I've been reloading pistol ammo for years and you can save a ton. You can also tailor your loads to your needs ... lighter loads for target shooting, very accurate loads for hunting, etc.

As Bundy says, buying supplies in bulk is the only way to go. Lead bullets are cheaper than jacketed, although they can make cleaning the gun after a day of shooting a little more work. Also, if you shoot at indoor ranges, be aware that some don't allow non-jacketed bullets.

You can get lead bullets down below $.10/each in bulk. Primers are still running pretty high and will be about $.03/each. And if you buy the powder in bulk (quantities larger than 1lb), you'll use about $.015 to $.03 worth of powder in a .45 ACP. Using those numbers, you'll end up paying $.16/round reloading your old brass. That's $8/box of 50.

Awesome numbers buddy thats what I needed. Sounds good to me My club range allows any pistol round btw so its good. Ever have a primer detonate on ya?

That part kinda freaks me out a bit

EDIT: Forgot to ask, about how many times reloads can a guy expect out of one piece of brass??

Years ago, I had a primer detonate while pressing it into a case using a cheap (and old) Lee Pro 1000 loader. The way the Lee is made, it allowed about 4 or 5 other primers in the feed track to ignite before the chain reaction stopped. As always, I was wearing my safety glasses, so the only thing that happened was me having to go change my pants.

The "safe" number on reloading brass is typically 3 to 5 times. However, I load my .45 light for competition (only need 717 fps with a 230 grain), so I've loaded some of mine way more than that. I inspect my brass both before and after cleaning and also hand gauge every single round after loading.

Holy Crap, Cowboy!!

In that last video, I can't believe you chambered a round in the AR with the gun pointed uprange!!

I won't bring up the fact that there was also a clip in the video with the camera -- and cameraman -- downrange of the shooter.

Yeah I get the safety award of the year.
There wasn't anyone behind me though, and the reason for it was the fact the AR was jamming on cheap ammo and I needed light from the range direction to see if it was good to go. You'll note I didn't point it up enough to get past the ground in my immediate area, until the rifle was pointed down range.
Its a private shooting range and we are all perfectly aware of what we are doing believe it or not.
We have all been handling weapons since we where born pretty much.
But at least don't say you won't bring something up and then bring it up anyways... You get the oxymoron award of the year.

This was my newest purchase a few months ago. Kel-Tec PF-9 9mm. For the price of $250.00 you can't beat it. Works great, very accurate. Great for everyday carry for me. Also just fun to fire unlike my LCP which I also carry a lot but is not as fun to play with.

One mile of road will take you one mile. One mile of runway will take you anywhere in the world.

I was referring to what appeared to be a small hole just above the selector lever. Looking at the picture closer, the "hole" in question appears to be slightly off center from the selector, so I'm not sure what it is. Maybe just an engraving mark?
The "Hole" you are referencing is actually a pin and block system Colt put on their "Sporter" models a few years back so Selective Fire components could not be installed. The pin holds in a block right above the selector where the auto sear and in later models the tri burst cam is installed. If one were to attempt to remove the block the lower reciever would be damaged beyond repair. They also removed the FA boltcarrier and hammer. Colt also used larger pin diameters on the trigger and hammer to prevent M16 parts from interchanging. This is also why Colt uses the funky screw type front takedown pin, which is larger diameter as well to prevent a M16 upper from being installed.

Liberals are like a "Slinky", useless but entertaining when pushed down stairs....

I'm not that familiar with the recent Colts and didn't realize they added the block, but I knew that they changed the pin sizes. Are they not supplying the FA carriers with their guns anymore?

whats up fellow gun addicts. I could use your advice on a 223 AR build.

I want to build a paper puncher. I have a cmmg lower and I know the features I want for the upper, but it seems I am limited to only the RRR varmint a4 upper. with all the features I want on it, it comes out to $780. i think the base upper is $610 but i added upgrades like the hogue rubberized forend and badger charging handle, etc. any other options out there besides RRR for less money (and not dpms)?

im looking for:
20" bull barrel
free-float
1:7 or 1:8 twist

thanks

You should highly consider the 6.5 grendel if you want a paper puncher.
Anyhow I will have my cousin look into what your asking, he builds custom ARs and knows about everything about them and could prolly help you.

Does anyone here take part in competitions? Whether its with a club or not? Ive been doing alot of timed combat shoots and I have to say its a blast! So far out of 100 people Im about a second slower then the fastest BUT the most accurate, ALL headshots. Im talking pistol competition by the way. MAN is it fun! It really helps train you to shoot under pressure and be able to think properly

Im looking foward to IDPA combat competitions this year

If you only have to bend over once to pick it up it's a good landing.

Yeah I have been competing in GSSF indoor and outdoor matches.
The outdoor matches are well organized but the indoor matches are pretty poorly organized and run by GSSF.
The outdoor matches are fun and challenging.

I also participate in IDPA and IPSC matches I much prefer the IDPA format.

Merlin--->>> Its really fun and will definitly sharpen your skills as a well rounded shooter. Moving and shooting makes stationary shooting much more accurate after time. Moving targets are a little harder to master but very do-able with practice. If you have a decent memory you will do great. Somtimes for newcomers, remembering what they have to do during the combat shoot is harder then the shooting itself.

IPSC??

Any suggestions on choices for entry level pistols? I've been looking at starting with my fiancee(IPSC HQ is about 20 mins from my house), and we're trying to find a pair of .40 or 9mm, preferably the same, for parts & upgrade compatibility.

Our first choices are Para Ord's Jarret special 8+1, or one of the newer CZ models; any thoughts?
