  1. And also picked up some 90 grain 224 Sierra HPBT bullets to try. What you see already loaded are 55 gn Hornady Amax, and 40 gn Speer HPFB.
  2. Also these... 224 to 308 sabots Got a bunch of different flavors loaded up with different charge weights. Just waiting for a good day to hit the range with the chrony. Did some quick load testing at home, managed to get 1" groups at about 75 yards. Wanna see if I can tighten that up at 100. If anyone cares i can provide more detailed load and loading info.
  3. They will rattle when clean. No worries!
  4. The trick is to get regular AK mags, and then gently remove material from the locking tab on the firearm. Once you get it trimmed "just enough" you'll find all ak mags will fit and function.
  5. After the first round is buggered up, ejected and the next round chambered... It functions perfectly with all subsequent rounds from those mags???
  6. Curly end into the bolt. Straight end towards rear.
  7. Chokes were available long ago. I think I had to buy mine desperately. I can't remember if they came with mine factory or not... 🤔
  8. It sounds like it's tuned and running just fine. If it functions on low-gas setting with the choke on or off.. Just shoot it. Im not sure exactly what you're trying to figure out. Sounds like your just over thinking and worrying too much...🤔
  9. Such as?? Im not following what you're trying to say/ask here... What model firearm? Caliber? New/used? Are you asking if anyone here has modded your specific gun?? (😅😂) are you asking what mods CAN be done? What mods should be done?? You're leaving an awful lot of info to the imagination... 🤔🤔
  10. Thanks for the tips!! I'll certainly look into those!! 😊
  11. Unfortunately... The days of cheap primers are long gone. I remember getting these for high 20's low 30's a thousand. These were 70 a thousand after tax. 😔😔 but... If you want to play, you gotta pay.
  12. The "idiot" was my dad!😅😂😅 lol He had a pipe burst in his basement. Not from cold, just metal fatigue, somehow... But that moisture screwed up a bunch of guns... I will get to them eventually. He's too old to really do it right, any more. Sadly... 😥
  13. Scored these yesterday afternoon. Price was a little more than I'd like... But I'm also thinking the days of "30 dollars a thousand" are long since past...😔 Suck it!!😅😂😅
  14. I picked up a Savage Model 93. Blued, heavy barrel, wooden stock. It had the bolt rusted closed as it was in a basement and not quite properly stored. I got that apart, and took the bolt out. Cleaned it all up as best i could... The barrel was bad but not destroyed. The bolt cleaned up pretty well... Other than internally... Took a few shots to get it sighted in with a new optic and noticed that almost EVERY case that ejected was splitting. Typically this is from carbon ring build up in the chamber, but... Is possible it's a headspace issue. Considering its 17HMR I was doubtful the headspace w
  15. I've always had excellent luck as far as feed and fit with my FBMG mags for the.308.
  16. I've got a few thousand brand new magnum large rifle primers I'd certainly be willing to trade up for small rifle. Doesn't really do any good with hazmat charges, though... 🤔🙄😔
  17. And... How does this 300 dollar rifle which is more a 500 dollar rifle shoot??? You tell me... All are 5 shot groups at 200 yards. Sure some aren't this good... But for the most part... THEY ARE consistently this size! I'll take it!!😃😃
  18. Just thought I'd share some info... Not necessarily related to the exact topic thread... But in the past couple years I've updated that same savage axis 223. Put it into a boyds stock, and have been working with it at 200 yards. Before and after pics...
  19. ANYONE out there seeing primers for sale?? I see small amounts of powder at local shops, but none that I typically use. I passed up a couple thousand small rifle magnum primers on powder valley an hour ago. But... The price really didn't thrill me. Bullets aren't too much of a problem sourcing... What are the rest of you seeing?? Thoughts? Comments??
  20. It's getting there. This was the local bass pro yesterday. And yes... Still overpriced. No primers to be had...
  21. And you can see from the load data card... The rounds are 10 years old. They still shoot amazingly well. ☺ Edited to add... This is out if a 30-06. Not a .308. But I have two savage's in 308 that shoot them ALMOST as good!😉
  22. 308 bullets com come in flavors from 100 grains up to 220. 155 grain bullets are nothing new nor unusual. In fact...i was shooting this morning with 155 grain Nosler custom competition hollow points out of a stainless savage axis 2. This is a TYPICAL 3 shot group with that rifle with these rounds at 200 yards. ( yes. TWO hundred)
