    Look at the MP .432 Hammer or the MP 44-250. I have both, either will work very well for hunting. The .432 hammer is a little heavier than the 44-250. Both have large metplats.

    Some states here in the US have wonky requirements for legal hunting cartridges also. IMO it mostly boils down to the people making the rules are just ignorant, they don't know enough about what they are trying to rule. Accurate has quite a few...

    They chose the P320 before they finished the required second round of testing. Small Arms Solutions on Youtube did a good video explaining the whole dog and pony show. I have noticed SIG and HK getting thrown a lot of contracts and corners being cut...

    dkf replied to a thread New 6.8 round. in Military Rifles
    I can see how shipping can add up due to weight, because the military ends up flying a lot of the ammo into whatever country they are in. Does not matter so much stateside, but abroad yeah I can see it. You will end up hitting the payload weight...

    Get at least one of the telescoping magnet pickup tools. It has saved me many a times dropping something in the engine compartment or other confined space. Even if you can't see it just swiping the magnet around can grab it. Well if what you are...

    I did not expect the 6.5CM to go as far as it has either. It fills a small niche in certain platforms with certain weight bullets but it is nothing awe inspiring really. But 10 years from now it may end up about dead. Over the years a lot of very...

    dkf replied to a thread New 6.8 round. in Military Rifles
    If they were that concerned about costs they would not be transitioning over to "green" lead free ammo which ends up costing quite a bit more per round. One way they try to justify the cost increase of "green" ammo is range cleanup. At the range I...

    dkf replied to a thread New 6.8 round. in Military Rifles
    The 6.8 caseless is targeted at replacing an intermediate cartridge, like the 5.56. Which the .277fury is not. The .277 fury really is nothing innovative. I would like to see how long an SR25 pattern rifle would last with it because the limitation...

    dkf replied to a thread New 6.8 round. in Military Rifles
    They have been screwing around with modern case less ammo for a very very long time now. Way back in the 60's HK was working on it to try and get NATO to adopt it and came out with rifles that had internals that looked like the inside of an...

    I was looking at the PSA KS47 but have read several guys had issues with combloc magazines. Supossibly they were designed to work best with Magpul AK mags. All I have is combloc surplus steel ak mags and I really don't have interest in buying magpul...

    So have I, but I am sure you are the expert. When I send parts out for heat treat I always tell them to make them "well hardened", its an industry term. Don't need all that uber expensive hardness testing equipment and all those hardness scales. Naw.

    I do a $.25 trigger job on mine (no power tools) with mothers polish. Makes the surfaces shiny and smooth. The one Glock I bought used came with a Glock 3.5 connector in it, it was mushy for my taste. Put in a Ghost Ranger connector and it crisped...
