  1. Damn, that's a good lookin' short .308, brother. You nailed that one, right outta the park.
  2. This is such an easy cartridge to make, brother. Pass your .223/5.56 brass through the 25-45 resize/deprime die, and you're done. Instant 25-45 brass. It's that easy. My best accuracy results were with Sierra GameKings in the 90gr flavor - excellent accuracy. I'm using RL-7 powder and CCI-400 primers. Nothing special. It's a great round, and I need to put it to a coyote, it's driving me bananas... I still need to sort out my load with the Barnes 100gr TSX projectiles. If I can make that work, it'll be one badass coyote-smashing load.
  3. @392heminut, HELL YEAH, BROTHER!!! I still can't believe I did that whole gun, and didn't take a damn picture... Sorry for costing you a new truck, brother...
  4. Yeah, straight from DPMS. My first DPMS stripped lower is a K serial number. It's true. Every stripped LR-308 lower they ever sold is a K. If it doesn't have the K - it was a complete gun. Go down to question #12 if you doubt what's being told to you - this is the actual DPMS website. https://www.dpmsinc.com/Frequently-Asked_ep_55-1.html
  5. I have a very close friend, that was a dirtbiker as a kid, and through his adult life. He's my age. Jeff doesn't have a right arm. He lost that arm, as a kid (11 years old), riding the powerline trails, with a buddy on the back of his dirtbike. There was a downed power line that he didn't see, and he hit it. The amps traveled through his body, into the guy on the back of the bike - it blew that guy off the back of the bike. The amps left Jeff's body through this right arm, and blew his right arm off. Right off his body. He never quit, never stopped riding, and never stopped racing MX - and raced for 18 years with one arm. He raced motocross with one arm. He moved the throttle over to the left side, moved the front brake over to the left side, pointing down. He still had the clutch lever out forward. You had to roll the throttle forward, instead of twisting it back. He won races like that, including jumping all the jumps on the track - with one arm - and running everything through the left hand, controlling that bike. I rode his "then current" bike one day in 2012, and it was all I could do to get the thing into 3rd gear - once I was in 3rd gear, I almost killed myself on that damn thing - and it was a Kawi KX-450. Don't ever quit...
  6. Shiit, I was afraid of that. That's the shifting foot. I can't give up much right now, but I'll do something in the meantime, monetarily. For the future, if that foot has to go, I'll buy the kid a Pingel Air Shifter, and install it on his bike - and come over there to do it for him. He's not gonna lose that passion for riding, never will. Missing a Shifter Foot is no reason to stop, either. That Pingel Air Shifter will still allow that, from shifting by hitting a button on the bars. Let him know that, when the time is appropriate. Next - be a mechanic, with a missing limb? There was a guy on the Army Golden Knights (parachute demo team) that had a bad accident, mid-air, on a jump - collided with another jumper - he lost his legs. He fought the Big Army BS, fought to stay in, and continued jumping with the Golden Knights - legless. Again, when the time is right, have the kid research Dana Bowman. He'll find all the info. This is just the beginning: http://www.danabowman.com/dana-biography.php Next - you NEVER QUIT. Have this kid research Derek Weida. Knee shot apart by an AK round in a house raid in Baghdad. He went through 12 surgeries, with them trying to fix that leg, and he kept telling them to just take it off so he could get on with his life. One surgeon finally gave in, and took the leg off. This is him now: https://derekweida.com/about-us/ Don't ever quit... Rolling over and giving up is what sissies do. When the time is right, let me talk to this kid, on the phone...
  7. Everytime I hurt and Motrin won't make it go away, I eat an Extra Strength Midol. Seriously. If it will crush a woman's menstrual cramp pains, it'll damn sure fix what men bitch about...
  8. I pulled 2 boxes of those Hornady 178 ELD-Xs from Cal Ranch in CG, on a lunch break. Would'a snatched more if they had more. I need to develope this load on it's own, and not just copy my load data for the 178 HPBTs... This is crazy G1 and G7 drag numbers for these things... I'm up in the air on RL-15 or Accurate 2495 for these - I think I'll build both and see what shakes out.
  9. And I though Larry was a big motherfucker... which he is, have no doubt... Larry is not normal. He's WAY BIGGER than normal... Al isn't even on the same plane. He has to be part kryptonite. Or part dinosaur. Something really, really fucking BIG... I feel like less of a man for posting this... about these huge fuckers...
  10. He's just not anywhere close to "normal-sized" like most of us. He's literally, a FUCKING GIANT. He'll back-talk that, and try to downplay it, in a way, try to mitigate his own fucking giant size... But we're not buying it. The pictures he's posted over the years make sense now. He's BIGGER than normal. Like, WAY BIGGER. FNX-45 in his hand looked like a Walther 22 in mine. We just need to get down on all this, and call it what it is... @Sisco is pretty much Shrek. It's that simple.
  11. Sunday after Christmas, we're shooting, brother... I hope you can make it down here. Plot that on your calendar, and let's shoot...
  12. Just remember this, and you said it. We can't be held accountable, blamed, or blasphemeyed for what you do, from this point forward...
  13. Don't ever sell that TJ, brother, no matter how tempted you are. Keep that thing forever. The new stuff is junk, but you have a good one, worth keeping. Sorry, I went Jeep Phreak on this post... Keep that TJ...
  14. As a childhood dirtbike punk, I need to know what foot this is... that makes a difference. It's either "my shifting foot" or "my brake foot..." One is way more important than the other. I can stab a stump at my brake pedal, but I need to be able to move my shift foot up and down - to up and down shift. What leg took the damage on this kid, left or right? I pray for him anyway, so it doesn't matter which got hit - but it matters to me, to know what he's going through. I've done it to myself, over time, so I know.
  15. Really look at this pic brother. Seriously. Look at the size of the hams that are your forearms. Look at the torso. We've already seen you ECLIPSE an FNX-45 in your paw, and it looks like a micro gun on normal-man hands... You're a Goliath. You're not normal, brother. You can say what you want, but just the shadow from your backside could eclispe a small crowd... Take no offense to that - when it comes down to it, I just want to paint you in violent colors, point you towards the enemy, and just unleash you...

    98's Mk11 Mod 0

    Weighed this pig out tonight. As it sits, sling, bipod, loaded 20rd P-Mag - as it sits in this pic, ready to go, is 14.85lbs. That's a healthy girl, right there. That's with a Tubb CWS, tungsten insert... That by itself, is a 1/4lb added directly to the carrier weight (or buffer weight, if you wanted to look at it that way). 20rd P-Mag, loaded, weighs 2lbs with 178s in it. This thing is THICK, but I like it...
  17. Valid point, too... When someone wins a military contract, and they sell the same parts to the civilian market - they have to price that part to the .civ at the same rate that they charge the .gov. That's why the M110 is anywhere between $15k (rifle)~$25k (full deployment package). Here's another example: DD Rails - the RIS II Rail is $440 on the website. That's what .gov pays, per contract... https://danieldefense.com/rails/ris-ii-rail.html
  18. Matrix Aerospace makes the uppers and lowers for DB. For more info on that specific platform, we have a Matrix section here: https://forum.308ar.com/forum/126-matrix-aerospace/ The DPMS receivers, by today's current offerings, are a little wider. That DB set/Matrix parts, are a little narrower - if that makes a difference...

    Pic Of The Day 2

    If it was a pic of a chopped off arm, or guts hanging out, I'd just tell him how to fix it with superglue. That bastard knows I hate chopped up fingers or toes...

    Pic Of The Day 2

    AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHH GAWD DAYMMIT, ROMAN!!! YOU FUCKER!!!
  21. THAT is the way to put some distance between yourself and the crowd...
  22. I've seen M4 feedramps before, that go all the way to the bottom edge of the receiver, brother. If that was my dream gun, I'd make it work and wouldn't think twice about it...
  23. Don't be cautious - Let it Rip. Just be yourself...
