    As a kid I witnessed a grain elevator explosion. For the non-rural types grain elevators are large storage silo's. Grains of wheat are barely flammable. Wheat dust on the other hand is highly flammable/explosive. While I am not interested enough...

    For me the excitement of using a red dot starts with the pull of the trigger. With spring here in full swing I have been busy playing with my PPQ and a Vortex Viper. I can see it takes practice not to chase the dot with your eyes. My results are...

    Bigslug to the best of my knowledge attempts were made to use lead free priming compound in LPP with poor results. There is/was a demand for lead free ammo. In short they could not make it work so they switched the .45acp cases to the SPP. PITA...

    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.

    https://www.atf.gov/file/100871/download What activities require a dealer’s license? Federal law does not establish a “bright-line” rule for when a federal firearms license is required. As a result, there is no specific threshold number or...

    That is a cleaning issue not a normal barrel wear issue.

    M-Tecs replied to a thread 17 Mach 2 in Rimfire Area
    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...

    Never tested for static but I have shot Blackpowder in cardboard tubes and a couple of junk 45-70 cases with 22 cal jacketed at about 3,900 FPS without detonation.

    One of the main issues with the early 17M2 in semi-auto's are dirty chambers. Later some of the manufacture oversized the chambers to limit this issue than cracked neck and shoulders became an issue. I have one of the first Magnum Research 17M2's....

    I have a 45 ACP barrel that has about 30,000 rounds of cast through it and maybe 5,000 jacketed. It shows very little wear and zero loss in accuracy. This is just a guess but since a 308 with 175 jacketed bullets generally will get 4,000 plus...

    No not yet. My history with the 9MM goes something like this. I originally went with .001 over bore and sized my 9MM .356. With my M&P FS and CZ 85Combat I had bullets tumbling at seven yards as evidenced by targets with bullets going through...
