    Any reason for x39 vs 40WT, BO or 30-223? Longer barrel adds weight. Have you looked at KAK? I use adjustable GB on all my ARs, once set they stay there BUT I can change them. Carbine gas is the way to go for supers.

    50/50 COWW/SOWW Try COWW only. Gas cutting (burning) PC leaved a VERY hard residue. Acetone doesn't seem to cut it. Til you get it figured out, overcoat with BLL or LLA or something that will leave a coating on the barrel so the junk isn't so...

    Bit off topic but years ago I ran across several articles of the Fin, Swede and Danes and their training loads for the resistance. seems like they used wood imitations for training and pipsqeak loads for practice as they couldn't let the invaders...

    popper replied to a thread Trip to Cardiologist in Our Town
    Surgeons look a little surprised when you tell them what goes on during the surgery, when you are supposed to be OUT. Hey doc, did you find a bigger stent? 'THINK YOU HAD A HEART ATTACK ON THE TABLE, HERE TAKE THIS NITRO PILL'.

    IIRC they BLM closed off most of the mining towns and trails several years back. What did you think of the train museum?

    Zn is good stuff. Did some tests with Zn 1%, Cu 0.5%, pure for 40sw (180gr Lee - 4.5 hp38) & 30/30 (185GC 16gr 2400). IIRC temp was 730-740F. 40 sized small so I got some side ways on target & leading (BLL coated). They expanded very well, some...
