    Mission - soft and flat shooting AR15

    The combination of a quality (tunable) comp, adjustable gas block, low mass carrier, and the JP SCS buffer system (with lightest weight spring) is the best combination I've found. Especially if you use a rifle length gas system.

    Primer choice looking for advice

    This. Check the breech face after a while to make sure it doesn't show any signs of gas cutting, but it shouldn't with 9 major pressure.

    Brazos Custom Big Mouth Magwell

    I like the way the Bigmouth magwell feels like it kinda cramps my hand and pushes it up into a really tight grip, but I feel like some of the other options reload smoother. The angle at the bottom of the magwell is a little shallow, compared to others.

    Salomon Speedcross are very popular. Also take a look at Boombah Hellcats and many of the options from Inov-8. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk

    First shot

    Did you actually read the thread, or are you just trying to get to 50 posts so you can sell something?

    Those dillon dies

    The Dillon sizing/decapping dies also do a good job of punching the primers free of the primer pockets (especially if you bevel the end of the decapping pin). I've had some problem with other brand decapping dies not pushing the primer far enough down to clear the case. On the note of the e-clips. Do yourself a favor and pick up a handful when you get some from the hardware store. I tend to break one every 8-10K rounds.

    2011 heavy magwell

    He should be used to it by now.

    2011 heavy magwell

    My preference was to remove material from the magwell, but it was much easier to grind down a few of the "nubs" at the bottom of of the grip. I forgot to take close-up shots after I was done.

    Reloading Benches

    My old bench had 2 layers of 3/4" pine plywood laminated together. I found it a little soft at times, so I planned on doing the same thing with a piece of hardwood lauan on top this time. That is, until I priced everything and thought about all the time it would take to laminate and cut, so I just bought some Acacia butcher block from a local "salvage" store.

    Reloading Benches

    Lol, thanks! I've got what I think is going to be a pretty cool idea for moveable ceiling mounted lights and camera, but it will deserve a separate thread once I get it all done. The parts needed for a proof of concept should be here tomorrow.

    Reloading Benches

    Definitely. Mark 7 has been very helpful throughout the process, it's just been drawn out because of having to figure out exactly what I'm missing and who's going to pay for it.

    Reloading Benches

    I did, it was just fitting to bring it up.

    Reloading Benches

    Someone once told me that I should use granite as the bench top, and that didn't make a lot of sense either....

    Reloading Benches

    Well, I've got the Mark 7, it just didn't come with all the necessary parts. I bought it from a retailer (not directly from Mark 7) and I'm pretty sure it was previously bought and returned, so I've spent the last week talking to both the retailer and Mark 7 trying to sort out the best way to get those missing parts. I'm actually expecting to get an email with a solution at any time.

    Reloading Benches

    Thank you! I'm super excited about getting it finished up so I can concentrate on using it.
