  1. Does 922-r and all the '10-or-less' parts rules apply to 30-06 rifles, in particular the Saiga 30-06, or only to non-importable, "unsporting" rifles? Asked another way; can a Saiag 30-06 evenbe considered "non sproting" by definition? Reason I ask is because in order to be an assault rifle, the cartridge case length must be 2.25 inches or less ("...Rifles chambered to accept a centerfire cartridge case having a length of 2.25 inches or less (includes .223 and 7.62 X 39); and...") where a 30-06 has a case length of 2.494 inches (and an Cartridge AOL of 3.34 in, FWIW), which is of
  2. Sirs! Is this new Broken Arrow lube primer and powder safe? That is, it shouldnt get through a normal, factory seal in the primer annulus or case mouth? And on another post: is "Solvent Clean" by Roly International safe for plastic, polymer, wood, and wood finishes? I ahve been looking for a couple solid products to focus on; since I have a whole bunch of bottles around from collecting lubes and solvents over the years- and i would like to cut down on clutter in my workspace. So if your recommendations work out- well, I will thank you! C-
  3. Sure, but the manufacturer must know how many he's sold to date, right? I am just curious what the number is, and howc lose it is to the 'daewoo estimate'. C-
  4. Waaaay back, we had a thread counting th enumber of mags we would all buy: The famous "Daewoo 308 mag" thread: here http://forum.saiga-12.com/index.php?showto...2988&st=570 That page has the last update i did, with 730-921 mags spoken for. I think between buyers not reflected on the list, and buyers ON the list who will have flaked out; that number represents close to the total market. So I am wondering if all total the number of 20-rd mags sold has been anywhere near predicted? Might help future innovators bring products to market is they have info on what real sales an
  5. Yeah. I'd still like to know how to get the plastic neatly off the receiver. C-
  6. 7.62 x 39mm M4 Jackhammer http://www.srtarms.com/ebr.htm 7.62 x 39 Subsonic General Description: 7.62 x 39mm M4 Jackhammer. This new EBR round is designed to feed and function M16/M4 weapons in this caliber in both semi and full auto. It utilizes a proprietary EBR 220 grain FMJ projectile. Also works in Kalashnikov weapons with slight ramping. Cycles both weapons with or without a suppressor. Independent testing has given sub-1/2 MOA accuracy at 100 yards using aimed, semi automatic fire. Light recoil and enhanced controllability make this ammunition extremely effe
  7. It is screwed in. The little ridges on the smaller diameter portion of the plastic tail stick up under the skirt of the slug and prevent it from rotating (easily anyway) while assembled. But after the lead was removed, the insert screwed in and unscrewed out very easily. I doubt it makes a performance difference between the screw threads and any ridge type arrangement, since even at a slow rate of twist (*) of say 1-in-25 inches, a point on the outer circumference (jacket) of a .72 caliber projectile going 1500fps will rotate around in a complete circle 180 times in 1 second. I doubt it
  8. Here are pics of me destroying one shell to see what its made of. Haven't fired any, just took one apart. Pic 1; the box, Pic 2, hull cut and bent away to show slug and tailpiece in situ. Pic 3, slug/tail removed as a unit, powder dumped out. it looks like flake powder, and most are in squarish shape but some are really odd shaped. unknown significance. Pic 4, tried to get close-up of the odd shaped flakes Pic 5, slug. lead painted with easily-flaked-off gold paint, hard tip and well-affixed plastic tail. upon pulling and twisting, it became apparent that the plastic was affixed dire
  9. With a bare muzzle, it doesn't look good. Example: Typical 308 load is 147gr @ 2850fps? right? So that's: 9.525g at 868.7m/s, or a momentum of 8.274 kg-m/s Lapua offers a 308 in 165gr (10.65g) at 2690 fps (820m/s) which gives a momentum of 8.733 kg-m/s. Lapua Subsonic is 200gr (13g) at 320m/s, giveing a momentum of 4.16 kg-m/s; approximately half the momentum. Is that enough? I dunno. For info pruposes only, to get the same momentum as the faster loads, the subsonic bullet would have to weight over 400 grains. Lapua also specifies a necessary ~1:10-inch (1 in 250cm)
  10. It can be loaded with the projo stickinng out past the case mouth for use in single shot /double barrel shotguns. As for a self-loading mechanism, it would have to accept a 3.5" shell and then what kind of powder charge could be behind it? C-
  11. Follow up; OK, according to the Army Board Study Guide, the maximum effective range against materiel in an area of effect shot (as opposed to an aimed single shot) is 1800 meters. That seems to me that the API is still effective in penetrating lightly armored targets and igniting any flammable substance at 1800 meters- which is below our 1712 meter threshold for being 1200 fps. So, it seems that out of a 12ga, it will be going fast enough. Now, will it fly straight and does it even have to do so? Well, the way the API is supposed to work, it hits armor (penetrating 8mm at 1200
  12. The weight would be about 1.5 oz for an API projectile - you are correct , this wouldn't be for the faint of heart!!! Redogre It would be fine. There are 3inch turkey loads with 2 oz of shot in them. Also about if the velocity would cause a great enough force at impact is a good question. Maybe you could calculate the effective range of the api out of a 50 cal and see what the velocity is at the farthest distance. You would know it needs to be going at least that fast. Their has to be specs somewhere on them. Then maybe you could check barrel velocity of a 2 oz turkey load and ca
