  1. Gotta hit that low hanging fruit brother, it's an unspoken rule...
  2. I'm shooting and Tom is supporting. We're going to heat it up until his hemorrhoids are cauterized.
  3. Considering that we live in easily the most litigious society in the history of mankind, and yet the manufacturer themselves told this gentleman it would be fine.... maybe just maybe there's something to it. Now, I'm not expecting anyone to adopt my viewpoint here, but there's a wealth of information available to those who want to research this, and a simple search does the trick: https://www.fulton-armory.com/faqs/M14-FAQs/308.htm It's actually fairly common knowledge these days that modern barrel materials are more than up to the task of dealing with the pressure difference between the two rounds, which is the principle concern given the exact same external dimensions between the two rounds. The consensus among folks who know way more than I do, is that it's fine to run either case in either chamber; so I have no concerns about echoing the manufacturer in saying it'll be fine, with of course the proviso that it's a no-no in older military surplus. As for being anyone's better, I appreciate the compliment but I'm no better or more authorative than anyone else here, I'm simply repeating what's been conventional wisdom here since pretty much the outset of this forum.
  4. Negative Ghost Rider, you can shoot either in either chamber these days. It's not advisable for older military surplus, but in these modern large frame ARs, it's not an issue.
  5. I'm going to lose a lot of personal time to re-watching that video.... I see you all again in several weeks.
  6. Amnesia is a common side effect of shooting Mike's reloads.
  7. Mike's handloads are a public service to people who have always wanted to know what it feels like for a pipe bomb to detonate in your hand.
  8. It's time to learn "The Rule". Fellas, ya'll know what to do.....
  9. Topic cleaned, see the Kyle Rittenhouse thread in Politics section.
  10. There's no picture of an armed hottie in your post... What's wrong with you?
  11. He defended himself successfully against multiple attackers, with no collateral damage to bystanders. All the people he shot had criminal records and were in the process of trying to do him great bodily injury when they were shot. Sorry, but that's badass by any sensible standard. No state lines were crossed with a weapon in his possession, that's already been cleared up. As for what he can legally own, having it on your person isn't ownership. I don't know what the quotes around the word 'kid' are all about, but he's certainly no adult. Based on what I've seen that kid do, I don't think he'll be so easily manipulated or pushed around... On the other hand, society has two less criminal thugs and one wannabe killer to worry about. If Lefty ever holds another pistol again he'll know that there are no guarantees in terms of potential outcomes. I call that a win. LEOs are taking enough flak these days without having their every decision second-guessed by armchair quarterbacks. Hindsight is 20-20 and anyone can "if only" a given situation to no end, but it's not productive or helpful, it's just more negativity to put out there. I guess you didn't see the video footage, because 'non-violent' is the least accurate description you could give. I don't know in what world trying to attack someone with a skateboard is non-violent, or attacking someone with a Molotov cocktail, but it's not this world. Spare me the drama, please. We're all adults here and it doesn't take a rocket scientist to understand what happened. Your "agree with my thinking or I take my ball and go home" is beneath you, or at least it should be. If not, shame on you and have a nice life.
  12. My sentiments exactly. How in the world is a difference of opinion so much more important than the years of community we've had here?
  13. Remove the hydraulic buffer from the equation and get a buffer or buffer + spring combo from @Slash and be done with your issues. Pawn the hydraulic buffer off on the next poor soul who can't be persuaded against their better sense that they're junk.
  14. Measure the width of the hammer side to side, and the width of the hammer clearance slot on the BCG. I had a similar issue once with a BCG with too narrow a hammer slot.
  15. It's true. Can't hit a barn from inside it, but hang a target at 650 yards and the t-post will take a hit right through the spine and collapse.
