    No can, at this point, maybe some day, budget allowing. I just want something new for fun, this should also do well at killing coyotes / racoons / whatever if needed.

    cw - it's a PSA upper, 8.5" 1:8 twist, looks stable down to 150fps (!) so I think all's quite well :) I was expecting it to take a bit faster velocity than that. Like 800fps at least. New to this caliber. Last time I was playing with heavyish...

    Checked and does look stable, 1.75 or so stability (want 1+) so that works. It'd be bad if a savage paper target was to attack me & I couldn't hit it accurately!

    You folks get rushed by squirrels over there in N. E.? Some people have all the fun! Looks like it'll be a good knife. (My older cat would very happily rush any squirrel she spotted, I am guessing she's caught some before I got her, dang...

    Lots of good options :) Right now I found a potential issue, trying to figure out, in an 8.5" barreled upper, if I fire a heavy boolit will it stabilize? Dang insomnia has me messed up. Seems smart to not get heavy boolits if they would...

    Hey all. I want to buy 100 heavy boolits for 300 BO, something 180-220 grains or so I think? No suppressor, maybe some day, but I figure it'll be fun to have some loads for it. Shortish pistol so the trajectory will be a bit mortar-like, but that'll...

    I've considered 3d printing a mold, then using that to mass produce parts, seems doable for lower precision parts. If you need better precision, look into local model railroading clubs, fairly often they find someone who can make molds and has...

    If it looks like it will be a future issue, then by all means - fix it :)

    If you found a baby monitor cam that ran off 6 or 12 volts and then built a larger battery pack out of C or D cells, or just use a lead-acid deep cycle battery (golf cart battery prices are lowest and sometimes you can get tired ones CHEAP, they...

    It may help to have huge strong paws, if I had as bad of arthritis as one gal I know has, I doubt I'd find it easy to get the last round scooted in there!

    Hmm, Laptops don't seem as durable as desktops, definitely more compact, my experience has been that a new gaming laptop is pretty costly compared to a desktop with equivalent speed video card / components. It's definitely easier to upgrade a...

    If someone's criticizing their own life choices, I might agree with them then ask when they're going to start making better ones on rare occasion, or just not comment; I certainly am not too likely to argue with them though LOL I made ~3 or 4k...

    Interesting. Not diabetic here but a few things that may help, I hope. I know many can take gabapentin or lyrica without problems, was given it for back pain & I didn't like tthe way it had me feeling, I couldn't put the reason why into words,...

    I use a scheme for passwords where I use my, uh, unusual sense of humor, and life experiences, to make my passwords and PIN numbers. More likely that an attacker would brute force a server than attack an individual account, or social engineer...

    country gent, good thoughts. Maybe could find a brass cylinder for the rotor that would be suitable and needed minimal lathe work? Cheaper to use just metal wear surfaces, of course this requires metal shop access, which I don't have... ...

    Interesting! You could split the barrel band in a few ways, to handle your 2nd todo, that I can think of, you may come up with more :) I hadn't gotten around to thinking BPR 3d printed mods yet, so many other things queued up already...

    Nice project. Please let us know how it works when fired? PLA slumps at about 60 C, but the transient temperatures in powder gasses don't have a lot of time to hang around and melt things, so my guess is that it will be OK. Less OK if you leave it...

    dbosman, not sure what you are asking, that is a stand for a powder measure, it there a piece missing or ?? Finster101, they are sorta rare but findable, I just like a challenge I guess :) Filament is variable in price, regular PLA+ and so on...

    I've met some very nice folks helping code on a crypto project, there are sketchy people and good folks everywhere, the trick can be telling which is which. Doable though :)

    You can heat the filament up enough to vaporize it, so that question may not get the answer you were after? :kidding: PLA+ filament usually is extruded at 200-220C, and has a glass transition temperature of about 90C, vs 60C for PLA But there...
