    I guess when your talking a 50-70k truck spending another grand to swap out gears if you cant find one on the lot is pretty trivial.

    Contacting the manufacturer will also provide the answer. Like you I would love to find something that removed rust without affecting bluing. That would be a big selling point.

    4895 has always been THE powder for 308 accuracy with jacketed bullets.

    You don't know how much bullet is in the case because they don't publish the "lead' bullet used, it and the FMJ could very well have the exact same seating depth, actually the lead bullet could likely have less inside the case! I wonder if Johan...

    you were right when you said a gas motor would pull it. Some forget were talking v8s with 400 hp and over 400 ftlbs of torque. NOT the 200 hp slugs we had a decade ago. Put a set of 410s in the rear and you can pull what a semi could in the 60s and...

    heck my pot is on a bench that's 2 or 3 feet about my bucket and a foot and half back from the edge. Youd probably have to drop a 5lb weight in it to get water to fly that far.

    probably true. Its probably why they charge us twice what a dmps or bushmaster that's just as good costs. They think were sappy enough to believe that the government picked them because there better quality. Not because at the time there were few...

    It doesn't sound like your range has target pits . If it does the steep trajectory can be a safety issue. Properly setup MZ can have the same range and accuracy as BPCR.
