Re: Can't vote for either POTUS candidate.

Yes, Trump may be repulsive, but Hillary is downright terrifying. Supreme Court Justice appointments are going to be huge in the next four years. If Hillary gets in, and gets Justices even close to what she wants confirmed we are going to be in a world of hurt.

Re: So if we find a Dyson sphere...

An ant is in danger from an elephant and will survive longer if it steers clear of it. It doesn't matter if the elephant is a predator or warlike. It doesn't matter if the elephant even knows the ant exists.

Re: Do you carry at work?

Wyoming doesn't have many gun free zones left, but I work in one of them, so until that changes no, I don't carry at work. My wife works in a bank, and always carries.

Re: FAA Opinion: shooting down drone is a federal crime

I did some searching and found the FFA defines an aircraft as: "Aircraft. A device that is used or intended to be used for flight in the air."
So are they gonna start throwing people in prison for shooting trap and skeet? :shock:

Re: Omega??? How many have them in hand???

Had one since October. Have at least 1000 rounds through it, mostly subsonic 300 BKL, but also a fair number of supersonic BLK. I have put about 100 .308 rounds through it as well, and a few .223 rounds. I am very happy with it, no complaints at all.

I have a good load for my Encore. 308 for subsonic 165 grain gameking , just bought a 300 blackout upper and wondering what would be a good starting load for the same grain bullet. It's going to be next to impossible to get a subsonic load using 165 grain bullets to cycle in an AR. You will have a ...

Re: Sub-Sonic - 300 Blackout <=245grn suggested loads

Trialboss will not work, not enough case capacity. 11g of Trialboss will overflow the case.
IMR 4227 will work, probably around 9.5 grains.

Re: Optimum muzzle velocity for subs?

Yep. I have some subsonic ammo that was going super on me a while back when it normally never would. I was at 10,000 ft. altitude. I don't think 10,000 feet would be high enough to make a noticeable difference. Plus, if I'm not mistaken the high altitude would increase the speed of sound, because o...

Elevation has very little effect on the speed of sound. Humidity had a little, but the biggest factor is temperature. At 100 degrees the speed of sound is 1160 fps and at 0 degrees it's 1050 fps.

Actually their lineage isn't domestic either. They were imigrants once to, just 20,000 years sooner.
