  1. I have a nitrofin on my limited gun and like it. However, I had from when I built the gun. So, I cut the barrel lugs with the nitrofin. You should mic your current slide stop to make sure it’s within normal specs. 0.200” I believe. If yours is out of spec, the nitrofin won’t fit right or require fitting.
  2. I’ve been on the fence on adding popple holes for a while now. Can you guys provide some additional details on your personal experiences (e.g. how much reduced dot movement, does it hit harder now, any change in splits, how much more powder needed for same pf, etc)? I’m currently using 8.7gr hs6 with PD 115 jhp at 1.165 to get 170pf, so my barrel seems fast enough to take the holes without having to overfill the case with powder.
  3. It’s a wave spring. They’re sprung around 25lbs and like you said, it’s for extra ‘buffering’. Some put quarters in between it and the buffer spring.
  4. Nice Eric. My 15-22 has been collecting dust in the safe for quite some time. I guess I know what my next project will be ?
  5. There are two main recoil impulses: 1) when your bolt/buffer goes back and bottoms out at end of the buffer tube or quarters/spacer and 2) when your bolt slams forward at the end of the firing cycle. I agree that the rearward recoil impulse would be lessened with a longer stroke but that extra length would also enable the bolt to travel faster in the forward stroke. This is where the feel is very subjective relative to the shooter. I, like many here, have tried different setups and I prefer a shorter stroke with a lighter 223 spring. Like Eric, I use hits on paper and a timer t
  6. Holosun 510c. Clear and crisp reticles, awesome battery life, durable, larger window than cmore and great price point.
  7. One tip I got is turn the target 45 too. Then left is left up is up etc. you probably know that already but it was something I hadn't thought of. Yes, that's right.
  8. Who still makes 45's? Don't think anyone makes them anymore. I picked it up on the forums a while ago.
  9. I use a 45* mount as well. All the benefits of a 90* mount but a bit less bulk and more visibility on the left side. Only trade off is it's a bit harder to zero in...but really not much more difficult than a 90*

    7gr WAC with the 155s seems high. What's your PF? I tried some Ibejihead 140gr but my KKM barrel doesn't like them. So, I'm currently using 6.4gr WAC with 155gr xtremes. I tried some 135gr Rainiers over 7.35gr WAC but it seems to push the muzzle down too much. It's sighted in properly as POI = POA when shot at rest but when I shoot offhand, the POI is 2" lower than POA. I thought it was me but when I tried the 155gr xtremes, POI = POA (rested and offhand). I'm also using CCI 550 small pistol magnum primers.

    Have any of you tried either the 140gr TC or 155gr RN Bayou bullets in your open gun? Does it smoke too much or foul the comp more? Also, if you happen to be using AutoComp, could you let me know what load you're using. Thanks
