  2. AR Rifles
    Building a new ar and looking at a fluted barrel to go with it but it's only in .223 Wylde. Can anyone, who shoots one, tell me how they handle non match grade ammo, ie cheap stuff. I'veI've read all different reviews, most people say they shoot everything through it just fine. Sometimes...
  3. Bolt Action Rifles
    Hey Everyone, I'm new to the forums and love what I have been reading so far. Currently I have a Ruger 10/22 Takedown. I did some upgrades to it by adding the following: Volquartsen Custom Automatic Bolt Release ProMag Ruger See-Through Picatinny Scope Mount Centerpoint Open Reflex Red/Green...
  4. Reloading
    So last week I went to the range and my reloads where all over the place and some even hitting the paper sideways. The load is 24 gr of IMR3031 with a 55 gr FMJBT. Twist is a 1/9 . 16" barrel. Here's my dilemma, I been shooting this round using Hornady bullets with no issues but this same day...
  5. AR Rifles
    A friend has a colt AR. That will not cycle .223. He was told that he has to run a lot of 556 though it before it will cycle. That sounds like song and dance to me. My question is. If he installs a lighter buffer spring, might that help?
  6. Reloading
    But these are mine. Finally started reloading. What a pain in the rear end but once it was set up it wasn't too bad. Learned a few lessons along the way. Lesson 1. There really is no need to stop every 5 rounds to check the charge. Lesson 2. When what you think is the finished cartridge...

  8. Reloading
    So I am interested in starting to reload match grade 223. Any tips you guys have that would help? What are your favorite bullets. I'll be shooting it out of a Remington 700 ADL Varmint with a Boyd's thumbhole stock and a Nikon P-223 4-12x40. The twist rate is 1 in 12. I plan on shooting it out...

  10. Bolt Action Rifles
    Does anyone have this scope? I was wondering if the lens is threaded for a sunshade. I was reading on Cabela's that it is threaded and the correct sunshade is nikon item number 6798 but cannot find anything on nikons website. I read that to 40mm sunshade for the prostaff riflescope will work on...
  11. Reloading
    Is it worth it to reload 223? It doesn't seem like it's worth it. Trimming cases take a bit of time and my hornady lnl isn't setup for rifle. It definitely takes more time to reload rifle versus reloading handgun.
  12. Semi-Auto Rifles
    which would you guys consider the better shoot, 5.56 nato or .223 rem for say a ruger mini 14 ranch? some feel they're interchangable. opinions?
  13. AR Rifles
    Looking to pick up 500-1000 rounds of steel cased .223. Need it before next Friday. Any LGS sell for under 30 cents a round? As of now walmart is my best bet. $5.47/20 rounds. Is that as cheap as it gets?
  14. Hunting - Open Discussions
    So my dad has been hunting whitetail deer with a 30-06 bolt gun for over 25 years. After a couple of shoulder surgeries, its is very hard for him to handle the recoil of the 30-06 now ( It is even hard for me to shoot more then 5 rounds and I'm only 17!). He has been thinking about downgrading...
  15. AR Rifles
    Got a great deal on a M-223 3-12X42 and just mounted it yesterday on my Colt HBAR. It had previously worn a Colt 4X scope but wanted(needed) more magnifiction. I've had the rifle since the late 80's and didn't want to swap out the upper to a flat top. I previously purchased the Cherokee riser in...

  17. AR Rifles
    The other day I put a Cherokee cheek riser on my A2 Colt HBAR. It currently has the AR specific 4X scope on the carry handle. It has served well for years but my eyes are telling me, we need some more magnification! I'm pretty set on Nikon as I have used their scopes, cameras and spotting scopes...
  18. Bolt Action Rifles
    My kids pooled their money to buy me a Savage Axis .223 for Christmas. They put some thought into this which is what makes it special for me. My son knew I had a stock pile of .223 and nothing to shoot it with so with their limited budget this was a logical choice. I know this is an entry...
