    In a video on 22 pellets in 22 caliber center fire rifles, one gent went from using small rifle primers in his 5.56 case by simply taking a primer pocket reamer for large rifle primers, and using that to "machine" the pocket to accept large rifle...

    Im trying to get away from rimfire sadly. The ammunition I just love for subsonic pest control costs as much as high grade german/English target ammunition. And the stuff I can "afford to purchase" has proven to be absolutely ****. TO the point of,...

    if 7.62x51 is a tad to much in recoil, through on a spikes dynacomp. AND put a spare 20 round magazine in the butt stock. Or go back to 7x57 or 6.5x55. WHAT leadership? TO survive as an officer you gotta go political.

    New rifle cartridge, or rifle wont solve any of the actual underlying problems affecting combat readiness. To many troops Never actually learn how to use a rifle until they get into infantry school. Hell, in basic in 2008 we only fired perhaps...

    Just how the world is, Malaysia is a tottering dictatorship with bad storage conditions and bad government run ammunition companies. And PMC is a company that loads ammo for government forces opposing a tottering dictatorship to the north. Hence...

    I don't need anything in a center fire caliber like .22 hornet or .223 Remington as any 22 magnum bolt rifle has enough diameter in the receiver to handle either case cut down to 22 lr/22 magnum length. Only actual genuine issue becomes feeding...

    I have been working for an off and on project. Restarted it up lately and have come to the point of it all. I like my 22 rim fire a lot, I dislike high velocity ammunition for pest control, skips a lot more then I care for. And when you do a lot...

    there is a shotgun shell chamber too. gah. What is the most amount of cycling stress that the rim could survive as a fully loaded round? imagine your the person who unloads your gun every time your done shooting, and always put that round into...

    it takes a good deal of effort to destroy a mosin rifle, especially a hex receiver. But I think it helped that by not having lawyers around telling you it wasn't safe, that somehow THAT helped you survive.

    well the HAP product line is touted as being "cheap blasting fodder with a hollow point to aid in flight dynamics" not as being "high grade custom sniper bullets made for the US marine corps"

    I would trust the PMC brand itself over anything from Malaysia. slightly better storage conditions, PMC is a big ammo company is it not? And I don't recall "Malaysia" has having a great quality ammunition industry. It is not racist at all...

    its not as hard as you think, really it isn't. all you need is a secure holder for it. Easy to make, say perhaps a 357 mag case cut down to 38 colt length, the primer popped out and drilled for a roofing nail to go through, the nail stuck in,...

    Oh I wish there was a way to get ahold of some of these Savage representatives that were contacted when this thread was original. The information of them saying they used a 5.56x45 reamer on .223 labeled barrels follows with AR manufacturers.

    This is a multiple pronged approach at getting basic information that may not be completely definable. Case necks/mouth vary from lot to lot, year to year, and brand to brand. Hence some of the more OCD shooters turn the necks to one thickness.....
