    For a time I worked security at a bar, it was in my best interest to know the penetration of the rounds I was using. Just saying not everyone’s circumstances are identical.

    The major flaw with that philosophy is many of us live in and carry defensively, in urban areas. A bullet “punching all the way through” increases the chance of hitting someone beyond the assailant, that we really don’t want to hit. The reason...

    With a refurb they will! I sent a rough one in, cake back like new with two brand new powder measures, three new tool heads and a two page list of things they replaced. BUT I didn’t get the locator buttons. An email later and they were on the way! I...

    Ok, are you full length sizing these cases? A small base die may or may not help, but with semiauto you need to full length size them. What is your OAL? As I said, these are throated tight, even .020 off can create an issue! Check the OAL from...

    Sorry, you didn’t provide much information so this is just throwing things to see what sticks! I also have a DPMS .308. Upon break in you need to use factory ammo, even cheap ball is fine, and you want it ET! Almost oil dripping off wet! I honestly...

    I’ll throw $5 as a starter, to watch the video of you shooting the whole box in, say, 30min?

    I’m pretty partial to the factory Houge tamers myself. My carry load, for now at least, is 110grn JHP’s and they are a lot more manageable than the 158grn fmg’s I bought for practice! I need to cast and work up some loads with the new molds I have...

    A couple of things here bedbugbilly, I knew exactly what “drop shipped” meant, the store owner didn’t know what “drop shipped” meant, I let him run with it figuring he knew his supplier better than I do! Yes, I’ll rip a large company a new one, and...

    I’m not trying to gruff up anything, he offered to do, couldn’t do, neglected to communicate anything with me. Had he called, “hey man, things aren’t working out, the warehouse isn’t sure when they can get it out!” “Sorry, it’s not in the warehouse...

    I agree with all of the above, I really do! I even said in my review I really really wanted to like the place and the owner made a great first impression. But NO communication at all! Even after asking for a refund, nicely, you’d have a different...

    They all dim over time, the better ones at a much slower rate than the cheaper ones. The rated average is 10k hours, give or take a lot!

    Not to stir the pot, this video will do that plenty! But I believe this is the video the op is referring to. I have several disagreements with this video! https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=XqSLJwA9DrM

    A semi-newbie perspective, take it for what it's worth. Threads like this are why I stay out of the PIF and helping hands section. I don't even bother looking, I just move past them, not interested! Sorry, I'm still fairly new, I don't have much...
