Re: Any issue using cast bullets?

Cast is fine I shoot 99% reloads and out of those 99% are cast. if you use plated watch your crimp. Had a problem with them in a friends FA mini uzi and MK9. Tore the can apart at the end of the day to find copper shavings in it. We figured it was the crimp. He reduced crimp on his loads and hasn't ...

Re: Form 1 45 ACP can with booster

Again very nice.

I found out yesterday and today that faster is better with the 316.

What is the length of your round stock on the baffle before you start your 60 degree step down angle?

Re: Form 1 45 ACP can with booster

The booster spring setup is SWR/silencerco.
Not only does he mention this but I have everyone they make for my Octane 9 HD
Good call BTW. Why reinvent the wheel.
We'll I lied, the fixed mount I made rather then buy for my 300 BLK subs.

So please share more in depth details on your can.

Re: Form 1 45 ACP can with booster

NICE!
I'm using the same material on my 30 cal can.
I already figured out how to part the SS316 but knowing more is better what did you use to do it?
and how long are those baffles they look shorter then what I had in my mind and I plan on using 60's to.

Re: WTB....Sionics / SWD suppressor

Put a WTB on Strum I got mine NIB 500.00 after transfer there. Before buddy could pull the add.
I had about 8 offers, everything from dented tubes to the NIB one I bought.
Prices were between 200 and the 300 I paid.
This was back in 2010 I think.

Re: Any help with form 1?

What does MFI stand for or mean?

I have never done a e-form and have no desire to. ( I like the real stamp and preferred the originals over the new)

So I'm just wondering.
And on my paper F1's all of them approved 4a just has my name and addy.

Re: Should I build with a Hobby Lathe, Form Freeze Plugs, or Buy?

I wouldn't buy a lathe "just" to make a can. I bought mine to just make "things" and I do. after almost 6 yeas I've decided to make a can. only two pieces of tooling left to buy. I have the F1 and the stock. I've made all kinds of reloading stuff. RC parts, parts for a 72 x 2 inch belt sander, a axl...

A bit of a thread jack here, and I'll remove if the OP wants, but I have considered purchasing a lathe for some F1 builds. I have zero machining experience, but enjoy tinkering with stuff.

OK so 1 1/2 OD 1/38 ID I picked up. and I just places a order on the 416 SS round stock 1 3/8 (1.375) Dia. I think the hardest part will be getting everything centered once I swap out the 3 jaw for the 4 jaw along with the steady rest. So far 200 in the stamp and 56.00 bux in material shipped. 26 bu...

Re: Min diameter for 22lr monocore?

I'll second the durability of the Atlas I have had one for over 5 years. your steady rest will be fine. worse thing that it could need would be new brass rests for centering. I have two steady rests for mine it came that way when I bought it. One thing I figured out real fast with my old atlas is if...

I am by far no pro with the lathe but I can turn cones with it. I do so for BP lift charges for the RV-85 I know I get one shot to make this thing ...

Re: Greetings from PA - Walther P22 Barrel Extension Question

Have the original SWR Spectre.
sights on the P22 are G2G and so is the laser. ironically it's also the most quite handgun out of two ruger MII's I had chopped to 4 1/2 inches.

I think the adapter was 40.00 USD for the barrel, or about that price.
