  1. Thanks Slayer. I only loaded like 12rounds. I just started my load development backwards. I’ll work down from there.
  2. Well CRAP! I was looking at the load data on my phone and I started loading for 180GR JHC, NOT 180GR Coated bullets. And from the published load data there's a significant difference in pressure. What has been your experience with coated vs jacketed bullets in terms of velocity? The base load I loaded just now is .1grain over the MAX for coated bullets.
  3. Thanks for all the replies. I just started working on some loads today. I'm using Longshot, since it looks like it gives good velocity with lower pressure. Starting load is 8.5gr at 1.255OAL. MAX published load is 9.5gr so I figure I'll work it up 0.2 grains at a time.
  4. I'm looking at the data on the hogdon site. 800-X gives the lowest pressure at 30k at a max velocity of 1,210ft/sec. I heard it meters like crap, but kinda wanna try it.

  6. Yep...the auction was this past Saturday (1/16). I’ve had good luck in the past buying guns at this auction at reasonable prices but I couldn’t believe how much the primers went for. If anyone’s interested, this is the auctioneer: https://www.branchauctions.com
  7. A friend of mine went to a gun auction in OK, and I told him to bid on some LPPs for me. I was willing to spend up to $90/k, they went for $350/k. I could not freaking believe it.
  8. I've built two AR10s with BSF barrels, an 18" and a 20" they are very light. In addition to being carbon wrapped, my barrels are also fluted. You can save some money by getting a "blem" which are their test fired barrels (this is what I did). Last I recall, you're gonna have to call and ask what they've got for blem barrels. In terms of performance, accuracy is superb.
  9. I carry an extra fiber in my bag just in case I lose one at a match, along with a lighter and leatherman.
  10. I’ve got a para elite hunter 6” in 10mm and love it.
  11. Those are awesome. Personally, I’m a fan of the square trigger guards
  12. I’m looking to build a 1911 and I’m curious if anyone has any experience with the nighthawk frames. I’m looking to build a full size 45. I like the stainless frames and the knurled front strap. Caspian makes a Race ready recon, in stainless with the option of a knurled front strap. I have a Caspian Race Ready 1911 and I really like it, but just curious as to any of y’alls experience with the nighthawk.
  13. Caspian Race Ready Frame - Colt Wilkinson at Bad Dog Customs milled the frame for a higher grip, Tri-topped the slide, fitted a new KKM threaded barrel and sent it out to get Black Nitrided at H&M. He also installed the EGW optic plate. Can is a SilencerCo Octane45. Gun is silly quiet. A lot of fun to shoot and super accurate.
