    less amounts of a faster powder. or more of a too slow powder. I'm assuming this is an AR so never mind the too little of a too fast powder, and focus on slowing the powder down. 4227 at 10 grs would be right about below the speed of sound.

    Been there and done that. I've won a number of handguns in Tx but I have to have them shipped to my FFL in La. It is a federal law and is about as stupid as stupid gets. I can't purchase a 22 rim fire revolver out of state and walk out of the...

    We must be talking about 2 different animals. The ones I use have a long taper on them, and as far as I know are for hogging out a hole, must faster than a drill bit or for when two holes doesn't exactly match.

    it's doable in most places out here. most are draws to get tags and you have to be careful of some units. they like to sell 650 tags in areas that are totally weather dependent and have safe pathways through private property. you can squeeze in...

    Good question for someone with more reamer experience with reamers than I. I can sharpen drill bits, so the larger ones last a good while, not sure if reamers can be sharpened. I can see sharpening them on the taper, but seems like much sharpening...
