    Same here. Only thing you have to get used to is the mag release location. I donít shoot ARs enough to find it an issue. I thought this was a different thread that Iíd already posted in. What I really want is the setup above but in 10mm....

    It doesnít work w/ small charges at all. My results w/ larger charges were poor at best. I know some people love them. I bought blank discs and drilled them out for loads I use all the time. If I need fine adjustment I use a different measure.

    dragon813gt replied to a thread Opioid/heroin crisis? in Our Town
    The spike can be directly attributed to changing the formulation of OxyContin and the ensuing switch to alternatives. The last couple years have seen lots of deaths related to Fentanyl. Not everyone is well informed. People trust what the...

    Itís your understanding thatís incorrect. The crisis was around well before Obama became President. But no one was paying attention unless it effected them directly. Obama did not cause the opioid epidemic. They news outlets were reporting on...

    It started well before Obama. OxyContin came onto the market in 1996. Thatís was the beginning. The pill mills were in full effect during Bushís presidency. The shift from pills to heroin happened when Purdue changed the coating on OxyContin. ...

    It goes a lot deeper than that. The ďfeel good societyĒ does exist. But youíre gonna find most of these people on anti depressants. There isnít much correlation between taking them and moving on to opioids. They have their own set of issues. ...

    The 1894C I own is one of my favorite rifles. Does everything I need it to, including hunting duty. I recently built an AR in 9mm w/ a pistol length barrel. That one is really fun, is very cheap to shoot and has a much higher capacity. But what...

    I can assure you itís not fake. Itís hit a couple people in my family. These are people that you would never expect. They all have families and jobs. And some of them are very well off. It shows that opioids donít care if youíre poor or rich. ...

    Like all professions people specialize. Wether people want to admit or not thereís a huge market for AR rifles. It makes sense for someone to specialize in them. The ones by me advertise what work they perform. There are very few actual...

    If it doesnít shut off until it reaches setpoint itís going to overshoot. W/ a cold pot the control value, CV, is going to be 100% so it will always have the pot on. As the Process Value(PV), actual pot temp, gets close to the setpoint the CV...

    Those are not RCBS die #87552. A google search will show you what the die actually looks like. RCBS doesnít make push through dies. They look like Lee dies. They definitely have Lee lock rings on them.

    I have the NOE 403-200 WFN, drops at 198 grains, and Iím pushing it to 1100 FPS in plain base form. I havenít worked my way up to max yet and I know I have quite a bit more room to go. I havenít found the need for gas checks w/ pistol calibers. ...

    Out of the three listed two of them are the best. I say two because thereís two different types listed. The Star is the overall best for speed but itís not for everyone. Even w/ locknuts in every punch it takes longer to setup than the RCBS/Lyman...

    Then you donít want a PID. For a twenty degree swing a simple bimetal thermostat will work. Thatís whatís in the pots to begin w/. I read the instructions and the OT setting is a stupid one. It defeats the purpose of the PID if youíre going to...

    The percentage is in the single digits. The vast, and I mean vast, majority of shooters donít reload. What you have is a bunch of people that try it out and quit quickly. So they arenít reloaders. The percentage of reloaders that cast is an even...

    Sure is considering how cheap the Ruger mags are. If they arenít inserted just right you can have feeding issues. Of course I have the original version and now they come out w/ this one. Should have been designed to accept AR mags from the start.
