    375 SOCOM

    Me too! Thats why I thought of it. I have a PVC frame I built as an archery target holder and have a 1X4 frame made to hold rifle targets for it. All I have to do is measure out 25 yards beyond the 50 yard target and done.

    375 SOCOM

    I got out to the range yesterday with my son and the 375. Loaded up 6 magazines to get the new Nikon scope sighted in and to see how the production handloads compared to the test loads I had shot previously. I put the first target up at 25 yards. I figured at that range even without knowing where in the world the first shot would go I could at least have it on paper. It turns out it was a good decision. First shot 2" up from the bottom of the target. Dial the scope up a sh*tload of clicks and fire #2. Up some more and right for #3. Then peg #4. I put the next target up at 50 yards and touched off the first shot. High again! Dial back down and shoot 2 -5. Now I'm happy. This is going to be a woods gun for deer and these are the only bullets that are going to be going through it. A 50 yard shot would more than likely be pushing it for distance. After feeling pretty good about the 50 yard group I had to put one out at 100 yards just for research purposes and $hits and giggles. Fired 11 shots (all a 30 round GI mag holds) and all of them high again and much more spread out. My son took a turn at 100 yards and pretty much repeated what I did, maybe a little better. Now for the question. Given the hunting distances I expect to encounter while using this rifle should I sight it in at 75 yards? The other option is to sight it for 100 yards and use the multiple circle BDC reticle of the scope for 50 yards. It just seems weird to have to hold higher for shorter range shots. On a totally different note, this rifle has its own giggle factor but at the other end of the spectrum from my suppressed Blackout. That one with subs has practically no recoil and the quiet brings a smile. This thing brings more of a holy $hit!! kind of smile when you touch one off and you let everyone in a mile or more radius know you fired a round. For an observer the muzzle blast from the brake is most impressive! Then you see a 3/8"+ diameter hole in the target. More perspective...Hornady's 9th edition puts a 208 grain A-Max out of a .308 at up to 2450fps out of a 22" barrel. This 375 Socom is pushing a 200 grain stubby flat point at 2435fps out of an 18" barrel.

  4. I can vouch for the Phase 5 extended bolt catch working with an Aero 308 lower. Had one on mine. Same function as a Magpul BAD lever except its all one piece. If you like the concept it definitely works.

    98's 6mm ARC

    Have you guys seen this place? http://www.sixfivearms.com/ Started and run by the Administrator over on the6.5 Grendel forum.
  6. Your welcome @Sisco! As long as I'm here I'll add that I loaded up 194 pieces (all I had that came with the rifle) of the 375 Socom. 46.4 grains of AR Comp under the 200 gr Sierra flat point. Time to see what they do at more than 50 yards.
  7. As far as I know the hammer goes back fully each time. With the pistol empty and the hammer hung up with the trigger pulled I can flick the hammer to the rear and release it and it will then go forward and hit the firing pin.
  8. I have no idea. I've done the basic disassembly for cleaning and polishing the feed ramps but I haven't been inside to any of the moving parts of the fire control. That is not to say that I wouldn't be against any exploratory to see what might be going on. I just don't like the idea of taking something apart and not knowing how it all goes back together again.
  9. I've got a PT1911 that has developed an intermittent firing issue. It will go through several mags flawlessly then suddenly in mid mag when you try to pull the trigger it doesn't move and the hammer doesn't fall. Thumb safety is off, grip is tight on grip safety, and hammer seems to be fully back. Drop the mag, rack the slide to empty the gun then attempt to pull the trigger and same thing. By accident I found that pulling the trigger then flicking the hammer backwards and releasing it will usually clear the blockage. I have yet to have it happen while dry firing the empty gun and hand racking the slide while dry firing. Do any of you 1911 gurus have any idea what may be going on?
  10. Wait until you get to the episode with the blood eagle. All I'm saying.
  11. 260 is on Tom's list. 243ai is unheard of around here. A 375 socom that didn't come out of my rifle would be this side of a miracle and would find a new home at my house.
  12. No worries! A good thread derail keeps things lively. Plus that vid was kinda funny in this context.
  13. Awwwww. But you know you love the secure feeling of not having to wonder if you have enough brass for your next project. And I like knowing that when I pick up something that is spoken for its already sold when it hits the bottom of the bucket. A win-win situation I would say. Last year after everyone had what they wanted at the end of the year I sent Montana guy an email about what I had left and his reply was "yep, send me all of it". Nice to carry no inventory into winter.
