  1. Receiver extension, buffer, and spring should be good to go. How did you adjust this gas block? Did you dial it all the way down, click at a time, until there wasn't enough gas to cycle the action (lock a single round-mag - lock the bolt to the rear)? Run it down until it won't lock the bolt back on a single-round mag, then dial it back up until it does lock that bolt back on a single round. After that, open it up one more.
  2. This is progressing quite nicely - very well done on parts selection thus far.
  3. There's a LOT of commonality in the states with assinine gun laws. CA, NY, WA, MA, MD, NJ, IL, CT... Even CO... to name the worst ones that just pop to the top of my mind. Know what that commonality is? Liberal-run states. Let that sink in. Look at homelessness and high-crime areas, too. Largest Homelessness? Liberal cities. Largest per-capita crime rates - easily, Chit-cago, maybe followed closely by Baltimore?... Liberal-run cities. You can support what you want, but my tin-foil hat isn't on, and that's not something I need to worry about in the near future, as far as my state goes. What's happening to you isn't something that everyone, in every state needs to worry about. It's what you need to worry about in your own state, and whether you decide to live under those conditions is entirely up to you...
  4. Don't continue to support such an oppressive state. Vote with your feet. Millions have already abandoned that state, but that's mostly the people tired of the state taking their money, through exorbitant taxation. When is it going to be enough for you, and other gun owners? When they're knocking on your door?... When they don't have any more people to tax the shiit out of, they're gonna start looking for new revenue. They won't be able to afford any kind of a "gun buyback"program then - but are they just gonna tax the shiit out of gun owners, then? The business owners that were getting raped - left. They'll come up with something. You'll be paying a $100 "ammo tax background check" for a box of 50 22LR ammo... It's up to you - I'd never live there, and if I did - I'd leave that place. Quick, after the last couple years of "kingdom" mentality.
  5. 7.000" internal (6 15/16" for Armalite M15), or 7 5/8" internal. Those are the only numbers that will ever make any sense in a small-frame AR15 or a .308AR, and a Carbine Receiver Extension. There is only one Rifle Receiver Extension across them all (NOT for Rock River LAR-8s!) - that depth is 9 11/16", rifle extension. I'm pretty sure RRA uses standard extension in the LAR-8s - I just don't have one to confirm. Their LAR-8 buffers, both rifle and carbine, are a different length than AR-10/DPMS parts...
  6. So, you're asking them to "modify" their business records. I'm sure they'll do that for you, and then take on the IRS on their own, if they're ever audited. As far as the other stuff that you mentioned early on, in the first post - there's only ONE record with your name on it, and it's in the bound book that the transferring FFL has, and it's only written. You're fine, unless YOUR gun is recovered at a crime scene. That's when the tracking starts, and the FFL is called, and has 30 minutes to give BATFE the information. They need the serial number from the recovered gun to start that process... so don't ever let it come to that.
  7. ^^^ That series is FUCKIN' GREAT, brother!!!
  8. Okay. So, which one did you choose, and why?...
  9. I FINALLY got @392heminut's truck gun painted, and gave it to him on Friday. However, comma, pause for effect... I didn't take a single picture of the damn thing. I hope he posts up some pics of it, because it might be my best work yet. I Desert-Tiger-Striped that thing, with Cerakote H-Series, FDE and Patriot Brown... It's BAD!...
  10. It's pretty crazy to ponder, at least rattling around inside my own brainpan. I think it's more than an ammo test, or a gathering of ballistic performance results - I think this is something like a small partnership with them, for testing different ammunition over a longer term... Nexus and .308AR.com...
  11. We were fortunate to have @JBMatt reach out to Nexus Ammunition, and his initial contact was just about questions about the company, and the ammo. Their goal is to produce ammunition that has the consistency of handloads, repeatable accuracy, charge weights measured down to the 1/100 of a grain (!!!), and single-digit deviation numbers - across all lots of ammo. Matt went to their location, which isn't really open to the public, and was speaking to someone about it (the ammo). As he talked to one person, they would say, "Come over here, I want you to meet..." another, and another, and another. Pretty soon, he's talking to all the people in charge of different aspects of Nexus (marketing, production, etc.). This was last week, Wednesday. He calls me on the phone and asks, "Did Ron bring that .338 Lapua Magnum MRAD?" I say, "Yes, he did..." Matt says, "Okay, I'll call you right back!" Matt informed Nexus of the shoot, the gathering, and what we were doing. They asked what distance calibers we collectively had, so Matt tells them .338 Lapua Magnum, .308 Winchester, 6.5 Creedmoor, some pretty decent 5.56 precision guns, .300 Win Mag. They asked him if we had any .260 Remington guns going, and he promptly replied that we did have one. Matt was thinking he'd get a box of ammo for this or that caliber, but they really shocked him/us, in a big way. They donated alot of ammo for us to test, but they wanted a couple different specific bits of info. 1. How many of those calibers were we handloading for? The answer was, all of them. We collectively handload all those calibers, and across those calibers, we have some pretty badass handloads. Good... 2. Check the Nexus ammo at your zero distance, against your handloads, and see how it does in group size, compared to your handloads. We can accomplish that. 3. Particular interest, how does it do beyond 800 yards? Yes, we can do that, as well. I did not get to the 5.56 and .260 extensive testing, but I will in the next couple weekends, positively. I did, however, test the .300 Win Mag ammunition... My .300 Win Mag loads are with 225gr Hornady ELD-M projectiles, RL-22 powder, all cases trimmed to the same length, inner and outer VLD-chamfered, CCI 250 Large Rifle Magnum primers. The particular Remington 700 has a 26" heavy barrel, 30 MOA built into the base, and has a 500-yard zero on it. At 100 yards, it will shoot 2.5 mils high. At 850 yards, it has 3.2 mils of drop, at 1000 yards it's 4.8 mils drop, and 1200 yards is 7.2 mils drop. I fired the Nexus 220-grain and 190-grain ammunition. As expected, the 220-grain compared almost identically to my 225-grain handloads. Comparable group sizes at 500 yards (zero distance), with groups hovering at the 4-inch mark. I didn't test the 190-grain ammo at 500 yards, because I didn't want to waste it. I still have some of it to run an accuracy test at 100 yards, even though the groups will be higher on the target - I'm looking for group size only. 1000 yards - the Nexus 220-grain was very, very similar in dialing elevation, and making hits in steel, as my handloads. Identical performance at 1200 yards. Firing the 190-grain ammo was a little different, and I completely expected it to be. At 1000 yards, the 190-gr loads had another 2.0 mils of drop, but definitely made it to the target repeatably, every time. That wasn't surprising - and it's not a bad thing at all, not in the least - but we're talking about my 225s, Nexus 220s, and then dropping projectile weight down another 35 and 30 grains, going to the 190s. Excellent performance with both loads. I'd prefer the 220s over the 190s, for my distances, just for the "less drop at distance" factor. I can't even fully explain the power of these loads, and what they do to an ISPC steel plate that 3/8" thick, 18" wide, and 32" tall - when those 225s and 220s hit that steel, at both 1000 and 1200 yards - those plates were SWINGING! Not just "wiggle a little" - those rounds were seriously moving that plate back, and it would swing hard several times until it settled down. Had to wait for them to stop swinging, just to make another shot. It was impressive. Both Eric ( @Cunuckgaucho ) and Mike ( @blue109) fired the 220 and 190 grain ammo, making hits out there on the steel. It was very cool.
  12. Eric, ( @Cunuckgaucho) just checked into his hotel in Mountain Home, ID. He's making GREAT TIME!!!... I think he drives like Ron does...

    Fake news

    That was a pretty weak "apology" from them, considering they were OBVIOUSLY faking that shiit!... Unreal. I hope they're proud of themselves - but the Sheeple won't care... Wonder how many Sheeple reposted that on their own instagram or FB feeds...
  14. He's 13 hours on the road right now, exactly. They pulled out at 3:10am, and it's 4:10pm right now. Another day, and we'll have his pic porn uploaded to this thread...
  15. I'm stealing that pic - I'll be right back...
  16. Mk12s ruled the day, that day, and ripped shiit up out to 500 yards from a hilltop... Here's his other pic of the family...
  17. Day 1, arrival and setup. Day 2 - High Angle. Here's my High Angle AAR: We were quite happy to get out there and start setting up, which is no small venture in itself. Camp arranged, firepit dug, 450-yard target emplaced for the Night Shoots. Food prepped, classes conducted, round-table question and answer... and beverages. We got a slow start Friday morning, High Angle Day. Targets moved, targets emplaced, and prep for movement up the hill. We took off to go UP the hill around 1pm that day. It's about a 45-minute climb, with little pause or stops in movement - you just go, and get it over with. We set up on top, and spent about the next half hour looking at targets, determining range to targets, determining downward angle, and computing corrected distance to those targets. @Matt.Cross and I emplaced 4 targets. We turned the 450 night target, dropped two close to the base of the hill, and put one further out there. Target specs are as follows, all plates are 18"w x 32"h IPSC plates: #1: 3 mils wide, so 166 yards. 17 degrees down, making him about 150 yards away. Shoot for a 166-hold, and you'll fire over it. 0.96~0.95 correction factor. #2: 2mils wide, so 250 yards. 12 degrees down, making him more like 240 yards. 0.97 correction. #3: (the 450 from camp, turned) - 1.5 mils wide, 333 yards. 5 degrees down, so you don't even have to correct for it. 0.99 correction factor. #4: We just dropped a guy out there at some distance, just to get some distance from the hill - turns out he was 1.0 mils wide, so that's 500 yards. 7 degrees down, 0.99 correction. We all got the data on the targets, discussed it, figured it out. Some guys got 20 degrees for the close one, and it was indeed closer to 20 than in between 15 and 20-ish. Bottom line - the data on determining angle works. There was Mk12 Madness up there on that hill that day. There was a 5.56 Mk12 Mod 0 (Eric), a 5.56 Mk12 Mod 1 (Matt), another 5.56 Mk12 Mod 0 (Mike, blue), and a Grendel Mk12 Mod H (me). @blue109 has some serious pics of the Mk12 porn on top of that ledge somewhere - it was spectacular. We all got on target, got hits, and chewed the hell out of the steel. Tried all the range estimation, angle calcs - and everyone was on the money. I can't remember what MikeDaddy and Ron brought up there with them, but Ron's son John brought a Rem 700 AAC SD in .308 Win, and he was ripping it up with that bolt gun. We all shot each others guns, got hits on different platforms, BUT... @Matt.Cross ran his 5.56 Mk12 Mod 1, on each target, from the prone, sitting, kneeling, and standing positions. He got hits on every target in those 4 positions. Big Balls Award for the day went to Matt. Then, we came DOWN the hill, which always sucks worse than going up the fucker...
  18. ^^^^ That's some SERIOUS SEXY Mk12 you got goin' on there, brother!...
  19. I started talking about food, then got side-tracked... Breakfasts were 2.5 dozen eggs and bacon every morning - breakfast burritos, make them as big as you want... Dinner Friday night - @JBMatt picked up 20 burgers, so it was burgers on the grill, cheese, and Spicy Siracha Bacon on top, or Blazin' Barbeque Bacn on top. We made a pretty decent fire that night, and on Saturday morning we threw a couple small pieces off wood on the fire to "wake it up" again, then in went 32lbs of charcoal. Once that charcoal was red-hot, in went foil-wrapped potatoes and onions, and 2 x 10lb pork butts. Three giant foil-wrapped packages. Coals on top, under, beside... and buried it all in the dirt. We were finished burying at 9:30am, and we dug them up at 6:pm. Saturday night dinner - pork butts in the fire. Didn't even need to cut them - just stick the tongs in them and pull off the meat that you wanted... YUM! I didn't get any pics of them, but I know someone did...
  20. Found my original info on this... I was WAY off on my velocity, from what I calculated. I still haven't verified this over a chrono, or by mil-drop at distance - but the chart I made on it for drop-at-distance works really well - so it has to be close to the projected 2815fps...
  21. Had to find the older data and info here, but this is what we dug up a couple years ago:
  22. 18" midlength-gas barrel, medium profile, straight from Sharps, and it's a shooter. I'll have to look at my load data again and check the velocities on the load, but the RL-7 and 90gr Sierra Game King were the best that I tried. It was under one inch at 100 yards, 5-round groups for testing loads, off a bipod and no rear support. I'll dig out the numbers on charge weight and velocity for you. EDIT - 23.1gr RL-7 under the 90SGK, .257" projo, CCI 400 primers, whatever .223 Rem brass I had laying around that wasn't LC NATO brass. Mostly PMC Bronze brass. That had me between 2650 and 2700fps 2815fps, but I can't find my velocity data on that right now. I'll keep looking. Final COL was 2.255".
  23. 25/45 Sharps - Handload them with RL-7 powder and a 90gr Sierra Game King. Same 5.56 bolt, mags - based off necked-up 5.56 brass... It's just a die set and a different barrel, and you're in business...
  24. He's already talking about an ice-filled backpack for next year, and load it with MGD... @Matt.Cross called 30 minutes ago - he's back on the ground in NC, and headed to work at 2pm. His flight out was pulling away from the gate at 5am this morning, so @Cunuckgaucho gave him a ride to the airport, and began his own journey back up to the Great White North then. They planned to leave the house at 3:10am. I set my alarm a little earlier to bid them farewell... I woke up, didn't hear a PEEP downstairs, so I waited to exactly 3:10am... and they're walking quietly downstairs. Eric's car was pre-loaded last night and ready to go... I said, "Hey Fuckers, it's 3:10am. Grab your poop..."
  25. 12"~12.5" Grendels are amazing...
