  1. How important is this? specifically if you're going to use a catch bag? Is this what kicks the empty case forward?
  2. A decent shooter similar to the R25? Can I build one for less than $1400 or just better off to buy one and be done with it?
  3. Perhaps it will finally be settled. Too many laws are written vague on purpose just to keep lawyers working. Job security for legalese.
  4. What do I need to add to this i order to have a nice shooting 308? Hunting quality minimum. Accuracy counts. ;D Has anybody built a gun around their mag? ;D
  5. It's black under the camo dip I'm sure ;D Just threw a middle of the road load together to shoot it today. Really fighting the scope. I'm debating the Larue 104 but the $200 price tag is a little painful. It's shooting around 1.5 MOA with this battle. I set the bullet depth to the recommended 2.20. My next step is to set to mag depth (.068 longer) and maintain the same powder load and see what happens.
  6. Don't be disappointed in me ::) I traded the oracle for a R15 w/Nikon 4.5 -14. I'm still in the market for a R25 though ;D the trigger is soooo much nicer on this one.
  7. Thanks for all the good advice gentlemen. Hopefully I'll have it all worked out in a week or so.
  8. Well that was a newb question that even I could work out. I used to be a carpenter by trade so .001 is a little new to me. I'll have to buy a trimmer for this brass. .008 apparently makes a big difference. :)
  9. Yes I have a 2 piece fs die set. I just checked my die and reset it correctly for fs sizing. A brand new 308 empty win brass will seat fine, but this brass resized will not. I have to knock them back out of the chamber and they have a dent in the neck. What does that mean?
  10. I'll try to include all the information I can. I just purchased a DPMS Oracle 7.62. I can chamber a commercial 150 gr 308 that I have lying around but my reloaded stop enough to not fire. I'm reloading once fired LC 73 cases. With a micrometer I can't really find any difference in the two rounds. Reloads fit the mag easily ( a little under 2.8) Case length is on. Base to start of taper is right on. All diameter dimensions are right on. The most I find different is about .003 from the base to the top of the taper (base of neck) Is this enough to stop my ammo from seating all the way in the chamber? I'm open to all tips. BTW I also have a hard time chambering these rounds in my 308 Savage. I have to tap the bolt handle down to finish the seat.
  11. I'm new here and I'm new to the AR platform. I decided to go big or go home. I some good shooting 223 bolts so I just went straight to the 308. I suppose I'm starting cheap though. I'm picking up a DPMS Oracle tomorrow. Can't wait to clean it and take it to the range and see how it shoots my hand loads.
  12. I'm picking up a 7.62 Oracle Friday. Hoping to make it shoot MOA or better. I already shoot fairly well with bolt action and roll my own loads. Thoughts on the oracle?
