Re: looking for blue print for .300blk silencer

If it s that much trouble then you should buy a lathe. then you can build as many as you want. Surely raw stock wouldn't get confiscated.

Re: Need help on a .30 cal build

If you are not able to machine your own parts, then I would certainly give ECCO a call. His craftsmanship and attention to detail are second to none.

I really like your .358 and I think I’m going that route based on the information you have so graciously provided. It just makes more sense.

Re: Double check resources... 458 socom form 1

I would definitely start reloading if you are not doing so already. That’s the only way to go if you plan on shooting more than a few times a year.

Did the 9x39 round go supersonic? I hear a crack in your video. Maybe it’s just me. I have wanted a 9x39 but I have not committed just yet.

Re: New cat on the block.....

You could use valve spring retainers instead of freeze plugs. You can get them in titanium and chrome moly and should outlast freeze plugs.

I have tried the upside down parting before and it worked fine, but my lathe weighs over a ton. Rigidity is key as always.

porting barrel

I have a few questions on porting a barrel.

I checked my compound and 0° is parrel so basically you subtract half the included angle from 90°to get compound angle? On most compound scales, yes, since they'd read 90° when travelling parallel to Z axis. But if your compound travels on Z axis when the scale is set to 0°, then you'll set it at 6...

I remember seeing some pictures of your welding positioner. I am wanting to build something similar. I have a rotisserie off of a grill that I thought about trying to use.
