  1. Looks like that upper has a proprietary handguard... Are there options?
  2. Light BCG isn't ideal for what is likely a fairly over-gassed rifle... As previously mentioned, barrel is most likely place to save a bit, turn it down some, shorten it, lighter gas block, lighter comp. What handguard? Aero?
  3. Steiner is decidedly better optic!
  4. Gun that fits you best will have least "felt" recoil.
  5. Would running 9mm be staying with the spirit of the rule? Seems projectile diameter would allow it. 9mm "technically" has a rim...
  6. Replacing rear sight on what firearm to be used for what purpose?
  7. New plug needed so that it has a way to stay in place without the bushing retaining it... May be able to use same actual guide rod.
  8. That is correct, Grump.
  9. Same stuff for any other 9mm with minor ammo. There's about a 100 ways to make it work and that projectile should be fine. The RN profile tends to feed well.
  10. So says you, but what do you know...?
  11. What about a mag catch that holds the mags a touch higher like the Dawson...?
  12. I've tried a number of different options including a couple mentioned in this thread. Not sure what is really the best answer though... I'm with many other in that I bring mixed brass home in 5 gal buckets. Sort once filled. Have a bunch of the kitty litter buckets for .223 brass mostly. Various other containers for 9mm, .38Super/SC, .40, .45, .308, .44 Mag/Spec, etc....
  13. My opinion... Having shot plenty of big matches and run a few too and being, generally, a top 10-20% shooter, I personally prefer an order of finish prize table. However, I also completely understand why many sponsors prefer the random draw distribution of stuff. Sponsors often get much more mileage out of giving stuff to shooters who aren't winning the matches.
  14. Very handy idea and cool of you to share. There are so many great solutions around!
  15. There's lots of voodoo out there. Likely that the variables are not a terrible idea, but maybe not all that helpful either. Nothing wrong with trying and seeing if they work for you though. If it feels good to you and the gun runs well, go with it. If not, ...
  16. Should not be happening. Would only occur if the lip and ledge that interface are damaged. New insert should fix you right up unless the actual metal portion of the magwell has been fairly severely damaged...

    Scope help

    Steiner 1-4 P4Xi is a solid scope for just a little more money. Its not just about the "X's", gotta be able to see clearly through the glass for X's to matter.
  18. Fastest powders with heaviest bullets are the recipes that we generally perceive to have lowest felt recoil... So, you can go to heavier projectiles, 185gr, 200gr, etc. You can also look at other fast powders like Solo 1000, Ramshot Comp, etc. Caveat - heavy for bullets with fast for caliber powders can spell kaboom if not managed carefully. Your longer OAL's will help to some degree...
  19. Seems that you should be in the correct neighborhood for sure. The snag with that projectile profile in general is that the ogive is relatively short and you reach the full diameter fairly quickly from the tip of the bullet. Thats what limits your OAL. A more standard round nose profile has a longer taper from the bullet tip to the full diameter portion of the bullet and can be seated out further to allow greater OAL options.
