Re: Completed titanium .308 caliber build

I'm sure he meant slipping in tool holder

carbide tipped are plenty strong and much cheaper

Re: 50 Beowulf suppressed SBR

50 beo uses magnum primers standard

Even with light loads I had a lot of residue

I would think slow burning and subsonic are not the best match

I load with fast burning pistol powders so it burns before entering the suppressor, creates enough pressure to cycle, and is very clean

Re: 300BLK Integral Suppressor

For attachment make a custom gas block that has threads on the OD for the tube to thread onto, I would pin the gas block in place and not just rely on set screws to hold it on. Then you can thread an end cap into the other end of the tube to hold everything in place. Like this? http://216.92.217.11...

Re: Saiga 12 conversion

Its not the easiest conversion. Most of the ones we see are done pretty poorly. Would you go with a remmy or the saiga? (Asking because I respect your opinion) As far as being poorly done, do you fix them, or recommend a place to get the work done? I would build a nice remmy SBS before a Saiga pers...

Re: 300 win mag can

delta, with all titanium internals are you at all worried about the sparking issues as the powder abraids the surface? I used 100% Ti and have over 1400 rds of 190 SMK's @ 2950 fps thru it with no signs of wear!! http://216.92.217.113/saiga/images/DSCF4086.JPG http://216.92.217.113/saiga/images/IMG...
