    6.5 Creedmoor short stroking

    Shot the piss out of it so far. It's scary accurate. Heads up on Wilson Combat barrels - you need Armalite AR-10 gas tubes in them. Even the gas tubes that Wilson Combat sells/sends out are DPMS-lengthed, and too short. You'll need the Armalite AR-10 Rifle length gas tube. I'm 100% handloading for this rifle, no store-bought ammo at all through it. The only load I have right now that functions 100% of the time is a 147gr Hornady ELD-M projo, 43.0 grains of RL-22 powder (it's a magnum powder that I use for .338 LM loads and 300 Win Mag loads), CCI 200 primers, at 2.785" COL. Perfect load. The 140s I had loaded up (Hornady ELD-Ms and a different powder) won't even extract the brass from the chamber, and it's not a weak load. There's just not enough gas in there, and that load is suffering. So, do I think you should up your gas port? Hell yeah, start off with 0.081". When mine comes apart for paint, it's going to 0.081", and might go up from there.

    Put it together and shoot it, first, with what you're planning. It's easier to diagnose (if necessary) that way. You build it complicated right off the bat, then it's tougher to find a place to start, when diag time comes. Armalite EA1095 spring, right here, $8... https://dsgarms.com/armea1095

    Here is the "final" configuration unless I change things. It is complete with an awesome sling from @beachmaster, thanks Jacob.

    Nice! I have a local range up to 200yds. Where we ground hog hunt, I've got distances out to 1800yds.
  9. Bubba, about four years ago, I started noticing that I was having ammo issues in 22’s that had always been reliable. My son started noticing the same thing. To be blunt, I think a lot of 22 lr manufacturers are simply putting out crap now. I have had some batches where I had a third misfires or jams! To name names, Federal, Winchester, and Browning. No problem yet with Remington, but I have stopped buying any 22 lr except CCI. And presto, all my problems went away.

    Asc mags

    I've had issues with my .308 ACS mag. I have yet to modify the feed lips at all, but I had to file the mag catch hole to even make it work. I am sure that polishing the feed lips on mine would be enough to fix it; but a slight bend wouldn't hurt. The quality on the magazine was great, just needs to be adjusted. On a side note; I can't even load the last round in mine because it's so tight in the wrong way.

    100-200 yards. That is all I currently have access to. Working on joining a club that has a 600 yard range.

  13. Cool! Very happy you had a great time with them! I had one a few years ago, and loved the way it felt and shot. Only problem was it was way too fickle with what ammo it liked that mine went down the road.

    Never had any issues with mine.

    Asc mags

    Are these mags crap? I load them up with xm80cl and after about 4 or 5 rounds they're rattling badly. So I unload them and that's a bitch in itself. Not slick at all. I see some rounds are nose diving. The tip wont clear the front of the mag. I'm used to slick mags: pmags. Ak mags. I bought 2 of the mags and dont really want to open the other package. My guns still coming so haven't tried with it yet Thanks

    308 ammo advice

    Another question for y'all. What options do I have for carrying an extra mag or 2 with this rifle configuration I posted above? (10 round pmags) normally I put a butt stock carrier/comb piece combo. But with this stock, that doesn't look to be a good option

    What distances are you primarily shooting?

    308 ammo advice

    That is good stuff. When I am not shooting handloads of Sierra 168 or 175 gr BTHP’s, that is the stuff I buy. And Privi is a close second. So close I probably wouldn’t notice the difference. Matt or 98 might, but not at the distances I normally shoot.

    Just recieved 10 boxes of the federal yesterday from PSA @ $17 per box. $14 for the Private Partisan don't sound like a bad price , I'll order a case tomorrow probably. @washguy

    Good point...

    308 ammo advice

    Federal has to buy those Sierra Match bullets from Sierra, albeit at a discount. I am guessing they make their 147 gr FMJ in house, without near the quality control Sierra is using for a match bullet. That right there will cause a large price differential.

    Using the dowel method it is measuring on spec. I also contacted the place I got it from and told them about the buffer weight that is listed vs actual weight. They took measurement of ones they had in stock and verified my measurement. They have since changed their website. My next area of concern would be the length of spring. I’ve seen it referenced on this site that it should be 13.75” minimum. I’m 1 inch short of that. I’ve also looked at the heavy buffers link that has been posted on here and I’m just wondering if I should just go ahead and order their 10oz buffer and corresponding spring. My wife would be shooting this as well so I would think that would reduce some recoil for her. Thoughts?

    308 ammo advice

    I know the ball ammo will not be Precision like what I'm using now or even better yet reloads. I was mainly curious about how a lighter bullet would hold up at further distances. Also slightly stumped why different weights are different prices depending on the brand. Seems like they just hold the price up higher on the more desired weights because they can...

    Thank you, I will give that a check

    My first 7.62x39 AR

    I got all my storm prep done this morning and took everything out for a shot timing test. The 7.62x39 build is cycling much better already, and I don't need gloves to extract the rounds anymore (though it is quite cold outside). The shells fall right next to me so policing the brass is a breeze. My battery died just after my first shot test, so I had to charge it up and go back out for more. The second time around I remembered to make an audio recording along side the timer to check my work. Then right after I saved the Ceratac audio file, my phone shut down, presumably because it was too cold (the battery had plenty of charge but it wouldn't turn back on). So here is a rundown of the shot timer data collected (ignoring garbage data and the missed shot).Buzzer goes off; I close the bolt on the 7.62x39 and my first shot is 2.844 seconds later. Follow up shots are 1.691, 1.677, 1.677, 1.838 seconds. The two matching numbers are simple division of the delay of to account for the missed shot. The Ceratac build is only marginally better in terms of time between follow up shots. In that case, my first shot was 3.331 seconds after the buzzer, follow ups were 1.348, 1.334, 1.371, 2.716 (yeah, I lost track of the target on that last one). The missing shot was a known issue, because my audio recording resolution isn't fully optimized; I knew that I could fire a shot in that 2-3ms window between readings. In this case only one shot was missed, and I might have been able to pick it up with a smaller shot volume threshold. That should actually work itself out when I'm done with the code; turning off WiFi alone should bring me below 1ms resolution. I have yet to analyze the audio recordings but I'm quite sure I'm within the 2-3ms range in terms of accuracy at this point. That's all I have for the time being. I've worked out the button layout, so I'll start building a final unit soon. The code is perhaps a few more days from being finished as well. I can actually hear this buzzer through hearing protection; but it will be replaced with something much louder. I'll order a lithium battery charging circuit in a few minutes; that should let me finish up sometime next week.
  28. He just got there first, I whole heartedly support the bashing of CTD! and that was no where near "wrath" just a friendly heads up.....
