  1. I'll need that, as some of the cases have a bur. I have thought about adding more weight to the bolt
  2. Eagle Arms; has a 20" faxon in 6.5 creedmore, heavy buffer and tubbs spring. Rainer high pressure BCG, adjustable block. I tuned the gas by bolt hold open then plus two clicks; brass is 4 o'clock about 5-6 away. I polished the ejector, and tried to chamfer the hole a little. I also told rounded the extractor corners a little. I am still getting ejector marks on the brass, appear to be about the size of the ejector hole. I am thinking about removing the ejector and shooting it single shoot to see if it is the hole itself making the marks or the ejector. Any other ideas? I'd like to reload for this rifle at some point, and not have to by fresh brass every time.
  3. Last time I qualified they gave the option, that was probably around 2012. I laughed at the folks that went with irons.
  4. Marines can qual with ACOGs now, been that way for years. I don't think the option exist for initial qual, not sure.
  5. I got a HB about a month ago from heavy buffers
  6. Or those who chose to live in a less than free states, their politics failed and now are here trying to force the same failed policies on us.
  7. Here are pics of extractor and ejector. Maybe the extractor holding on to tight, the corners are sharp, saw a thread on that somewhere. The ejector doesn't seem sharp.
  8. Another good range day. Box of ammo, all fed and all bolt hold open on empty mags. I did a little for accuracy. 143 ELDX 1st Target 100 yards, the shots above and below (12,6) were sight in. The group of 4 was shot holding on the bull. I think I pulled the flier. 2nd Target was 200 yd, need to try again. Any idea what would cause the ejector swipe? Cases are ejecting 3-4 o'clock. I am one maybe two clicks open on the gas block passed bolt not holding open. It seems to be gassed correctly, but the ejector swipe makes me think still to much gas. If I back down the bolt won't hold open.

  10. Changed to 6.5 creedmore, yes getting an integrated suppressed 6.5 bolt gun as well.
  11. Well, like I said in the other thread, I got irritated and tired of messing with the 300 wsm. I have a suppressed bolt gun coming in 6.5, and that is what got let me to messing with the AR10 again. I put a 20" fluted faxon on it, Rainer BCG (with the high pressure bolt), superlative adjustable block. I also sold the ridiculously large 8X32X56 nightforce and went with a 4x14x44 vortex HST. The rifle has lost a bit of weight, will be much more manageable in the field now. I also put in a heavy buffer and a Tubbs flat spring. I do have a liberty serenity on order, hopefully the gun will run with the can. Review of what it was, Accuracy Systems 300WSM with Eagle Arms upper and lower; never worked right; almost always FTE. So I put it all together, got the bolt sopping wet with oil and went to the range with some 143 ELD-Xs. The very first round ejected, bolt held open; win! I picked up the brass, and the primer had blown out. I was pissed. I had the block adjusted 2 turns past wide open (in the bleed off range). So I figured I'd tighten it down all the way closed then open it up a couple turns (in the mid closed range, but not in bleed off). I went about 1.5 turns open. Ejection again, brass looked better, but short stroke. I opened up doing a shot at a time until it held open. All day I had good ejection. I had two FTF (where the round got damaged by the bolt) during gas block adjustment; was probably a little under gassed. I ended up in a happy spot where the brass would go to about 3 oclock, maybe 4. It is a little over gassed. There is some damage to the case rims. I don't think I will reload for this rifle, so not concerned about the brass. But don't want to replace bolt parts. Once everything breaks in I might try some more adjusting to prevent the case rim damage, but I am ok with it. Actually thrilled with it, no longer is it a boat anchor. It is now fun to shoot. Once I put the can on, I'll need to adjust again. It will probably only be shot with the can once I get it. I was very happy, Out of 40 rounds, two damaged from FTF, and the rest ejected correctly. Previously with the 300WSM out of 40 I'd probably damage 10 of them and might eject 3-5. Accuracy seemed decent, but wasn't really trying. I'll go back and try again in better conditions. I got a decent zero at 100.
  12. So I got irritated and impatient and bought parts to make it a 6.5. I gave up on the 300. Anyways, not much wear on the CH. The pic of the upper was with the flash on, made it look like excessive wear. Not a side charger. I am back in the States, still on call and not quite on an off day yet, might be at home tomorrow. Everything should arrive and if I have daylight I'll shoot. Got a Faxon 20" and Rainier bolt, headspace done by Rainier, new adjustable has block for the stop, and replacement bolt stop. I'll start a new thread with results.
  13. Well sort of. I am back on US soil but on the road still. Same topic, but I got impatient right before the trip ordered a barrel and new bcg, went 6.5. updating the other thread next
  14. Well I went today. Two rounds off. Both left cases inside the receiver, not even ejecting. One the second round, it bent the bolt catch, stuck open. I had to take the rifle apart to get the bolt to close. And in the process I lost the plunger. I think I am done. Might start a new thread later for a 6.5 convert with known working combo
  15. The guy I bought the second barrel from had a crazy long gas tube (didn't come with the barrel). He made it I think, it looked around the barrel several times, effectively increasing the length of the tube, and delaying the gas charge. Hopefully the spring and buffer slow it down. Probably the last part I throw at it.
