    Thanks, I read that it was based on the .50 AE online. Too bad it's not formable from the .50; I actually have those here for that silly D.E. crew served pistol. Sent from my SM-A716U using Tapatalk

    I dont think that load will have enough oomph to cycle. I had an AR 7.62x39 .308"/10" twist for a short time( too heavy) and it shot very well with the C309150F and 25grs of 3031. I wish that my .300BO was a 10" twist- I'd shoot it a lot more! I...

    The time has arrived to put a scope on my H&R Topper 44WCF. Drilled and tapped it for a #62 Weaver base. A simple Bushnell 4x Sportview will suffice, I think. And trying to round up .40 S&W ammo makings.... Sent from my SM-A716U using Tapatalk
