    all ive used is smokes powders. Never seen a reason to try something else. Ive used black and brown. both work fine. Brown seems to give a bit more consistent coverage.

    I made a big mistake once. I had a good ak that would run anything. Even had 5 case of wolf steal cased ammo for a stash for it. Thought id upgrade and buy myself an ar15 in 762x39 so traded it off on one. It was a bushmaster factory gun. Biggest...

    I really don't have a need for steel cased 9mm ammo. Reason I have my two 9mm ARs is because I can load cast bullets in them for about the price of 22 shells. I can shoot 6 9mms loaded like that for the price of one handloaded 5.56 shell.

    Ive put maybe 300 rounds through it yesterday and today. Only problem ive seen is feeding the first round out of those cheap aftermarket 32 round mags when I stick a full 32 in them. Load them with 30 and the gun runs like a clock. One thing I would...

    MN allows face to face for residents on handguns. No FFL required unless you purchase them for resale. Than you are in business and need an FFL.

    Most of the issues are with the semi-auto's. I have Sako Quads, CZ 452 and Contenders in 17M2 and the Magnum Research in a Semi-Auto. Neck and shoulder cracks are more common than with the 17HMR but in either they are not a problem or a safety...

    Your friend is giving you bad advice. Rimfire's erode from the glass beads in the priming compound. With a borescope you can see it at about 20,000 rounds. On target rifles 50,000 rounds without loss is not unusual. I know of one range rental...
