    Benelli lubricant?

    The lighter the oil, the more often you got to use it, but any oil is better than no oil, but I don't feel that it is up to the task on the cam pin and slot. I use Neco moly paste, or any good Extreem Pressure grease BTW the Benelli oil works great in in-line drip oilers for air tools, it has a very low viscosity!

    18" or 16"?

    I've run 20" barrels like forever and they are in no way a handicap! All 556X45MM has going for it is velocity, might as well get what you can!!!!
  3. Has anyone seen a refund from this match yet???

    Bullet choice for 200-500yd stages

    I have always used 55 grain bullets. I like the Sierra and Nozler ballistic tips. I've never seen the use of a heavy bullet for what we do. Maybe I don't know much about wind and what it does to a "low B.C." bullet, but I seldom can't hit targets out to 600+ in any condition and that is using real iron sights. With an optic where you can see exactly where your holding off, I couldn't imagine needing anything heavy!

    Limited Irons Build Help

    Criterion makes a great 20" medium contour barrel. Yes the extra 2" of sight radius really helps. Don't go cheap on the front sight, get the J.P. and don't look back. The Yankee Hill sight works OK, but is real prone to snagging on stuff. The longer the sight radius the better, EVERY TIME! Don't worry about the weight after all it will still weigh much less than anything with those funny tubes with glass in them that folks seem to think they need to hit something.

    Stoeger M3000 Scattergun?

    Significant would be a good word Mark!
  7. Fly???? I say falling down with style!
  8. No! That horse gasps and flops around everytime someone says "it's going to be just as good as a Benelli but at half the price"!!!

    Stoeger M3000 Scattergun?

    Not bagging on the old Stoegy, just need some info. How common is this failure? Lower locking lugs recesses broke out of this barrel at about the 3000 round mark. Anyone else had this happen?
  11. Might I ask J.J., and Denise, if the gun isn't "unsafe" why is the penalty at your matches "enhanced" to 30 seconds, Instead of just a regular procedural???? Is it to keep this "safe event" from happening, or is it really that much bigger of a "safety problem" that it must be punished more Sevierly??? Note: I didn't say whether I agreed or not, I just want to know the thinking that makes it a bigger penalty. BTW Richard, I replied and I seem to be the only one doing what I do......go figure.
  12. Sigh!!!! It isn't "Paint coming off" it is a plateing of carbon/ plasma/lead being deposited on the tube surface from the muzzle blast. Soak the damn thing in Kroil, or Carbon cutter and the tube will be " restored" to perfect condition. This is an absutely NOTHING thing, and has nothing to do with composition of the tube! The tube could be poly carbinate! Wouldn't matter...... Has nothing to do with o do with errosion!!!!

I, like you have never had anything to do with Social Media......or, from what I can gather from listening to other folks bitch about it.....UNSOCIAL MEDIA!!!!! ?
