    The only thing that I have shot in mine is M852 or M118LR. I wasn't expecting much when I got them. I just wanted the cheap parts. I do all my on work including chambering so I looked at them as a cheap parts source.

    I have 2 Armalite B series but wanted something that worked with Stoner/MagPul mags since I some bolt guns that use these. I opted to go with two PSA's for under 6 bills with the plans of rebarreling them. I only have a couple hundred rounds...

    could be. My experience with it comes from back in the 80s when AA first resold it. I bought a bunch of it surplus years ago and those two powders were the same. From my loading notes they fell somewhere between aa2230 and varget. real close to 748...

    I guess youd have to buy new brass because the factory ammo brass he gave me (2 boxes) had 3 case splits on the first firing and my guess is if those 3 split the other 37 were kind of sketchy. I never got into annealing. I guess it was always some...

    Yes it's the same lower, however, the lowers are not standardized like the AR15's. The ones that take the Stoner/Magpul mags are becoming the most common.

    I had a bunch more that I lost in a hard drive failure. BlackPowder Cartridge News ran a series very detailed factual accounts of the Buffalo Hunting era that included shipped records for hides going east and supplies going West.

    I think bowen makes what you want in his express sight. Me I cant stand them but his target rear and post front are the hands down best set of sights you can put on a sixgun.

    heres my take on it. Both the 243wssm and 25wsm use expensive brass and my buddy has two different browing bolts chambered for each and said he gets neck splits after two shootings so brass life is poor. I had a 300 wsm browning and had better luck...
