    I am diving into the PCC pool

    Assume by FSB that you mean Shooting Innovations Full Sail Brake? I've been running SI's FSB since I first put my PCC together. I recently ordered a Fortis 9mm PCC Muzzle Break... It's fairly similar to the FSB, but has two top holes to provide some downward pressure... Should be here early next week...

    RF-100 totally worth it

    Talked to Dillon... They said their RF-100's had trouble with Winchester primers because they were out of round... Sent me some parts... Didn't help. Different characteristics would indicate poor manufacturing processes.

    Looks good... You're making great progress! Can't remember what bolt you decided to use... I remember you were originally considering the Taccom Extreme bolt... That's what I'm using, too... Did you remove the bolt weight? I removed my bolt weight to run a JP SCS buffer system... Wondering if I should put the weight back in with the hydraulic buffer setup. I just bought some 1" diameter 12" long delrin rods from Grainger... The rods are cheap, but the shipping is expensive... Figure I can cut one spacer off of each end of the rod so that it will remain square... Then I'll only have to clean up one cut... Would be nice to have a lathe.
  4. How do you determine the best length of pull for an AR9 PCC rifle? I'm 6'3" tall with long arms, so I pulled my stock all the way out when I first built my PCC rifle... I've continued to shoot it that way without much thought... Now I'm wondering if I should go shorter or longer?

    Atlanta Arms - 100Gr. Steel Challenge

    Have any of you shooting the Atlanta Arms 100gr rounds measured their over all length? I'm curious what the OAL is...

    Excellent! Glad to hear that it's shooting well! This is with the A5 tube and enough quarters to make the buffer length equivalent to a standard carbine tube? If you know the compressed length of the wave spring, you could remove that many quarters and then add the wave spring... That should be a safe way to start out.

    I ordered one of the JP 308 Carbine springs... It's the same strength as the Sprinco orange, but a little quieter. Do you still use the buffer retaining pin? I haven't been using one with my SCS system, but thinking about reinstalling one with the hydraulic buffer.

    From the Blitzkrieg Web Site: According to the chart on the Blitzkrieg web site, it looks like there are only three spring options that would apply to my 16" barrel... Highlighting in the chart above is mine.

    I'm loading 135gr Acme bullets with 3.2gr of N320 at 1.135... It chronos at 133pf in my 16" barrel.

    I'm using a pretty standard system... QC10 lower and upper with a Taccom Extreme bolt... Since your Kynshot buffer is only 5 ounces, I assume you kept the weight in your bolt? I'm currently running a JP SCS buffer, so I already removed the weight from my buffer.

    I ordered one of the VltorA5 extension tubes from Midway... Good price and they seem to be the standard... Making up the difference with quarters is a good idea... It will let me shoot my current buffer system in the longer extension tube if I want to. Getting ready to order my Blitzkrieg hydraulic buffer and spring... Did you get yours at Blitzkrieg.com? Is the RB5007 still the one to get? I hear that there's a version with a new, improved piston? Not sure which spring to get?

    Atlanta Arms - 100Gr. Steel Challenge

    Sometimes its difficult to explain something with words when you can't see it... But, you did a great job... I understand it, thanks! I ordered a few of the Berry's 100's to see what they look like... Curious after finding out that AA uses them.

    Interesting... Might have to trim down the inner diameter a bit.

    I am diving into the PCC pool

    That sounds like a good plan... Thanks. Are you using your Vltor A5 lower extension tube, or the standard carbine tube?

    Good tips, thanks... I don't lock the bolt back or use the LRBHO linkage, so that doesn't matter to me. I assume you are using the Blitzkrieg hydraulic buffer?
