Re: looking for info

I have a 7,62 Arbiter Ti can waiting for transfer to the local SOT and then <wait> for transfer to me. Going to use it in a 300 BLK and a 6.8.

Several users I've talked to liked them very much. SAS has been very helpful.

Re: coating a suppressor

Anyone try Gun Kote? Have found it to be much hardier than Duracoat. The 2400 series Gun Kote is rated to 800F.

Re: Need some help

I think the 300 BLK is more like a 150 yard cartridge not a 300 yard round. Better to look at a 6.8 for 300 yards from a shorter barrel.

Re: 9mm and 5.56 cans

SWR Octane-9 HD ordered with both threaded and 3 lug mounts. 5.56 can will have to wait until later in the year or next year as I collect more pennies. Lots of time for new things to appear. Hope to be starting the Form 4 process in the not too distant future. Can't take as long as the last ones I d...

Re: Reloaders help me out

I make my cases from 5.56 LC brass. Fortunately, when I had my barrel made I also had a cartridge gauge made at the same time. I cut the cases to length on a milling machine using a Lyman drill press case trimming head using a special vice that I made to hold the case. I then chamfer the mouth of th...

Re: 300 BLACKOUT scope poll

My 16" Paladin 300/221 bbl just got back after having had its throat cut to 300 BLK length. So I guess I have a 300 BLK with a match chamber. We'll see how that works. Am an old guy. Don't have CQB experience and have to rely on my son's feedback for that. He uses an EoTech for that. I do have dange...

Baffle strikes

Was reading the thread on the AK47 baffle strikes. Oh my! What a nightmare! Am a newbie to suppressors (but not NFA weapons), so please excuse the dummy questions: 1. How often does this sort of thing happen? 2. Is it common with good quality (ARP, WOA, BHW, etc) factory threaded AR barrels? Thanks!

Jason, Thank you for your patience with the new guy. It is very much appreciated. Answer really was not obvious to me. While the can might well be able to sustain the pressure during moderate use, the short barreled automatic weapons do liberate a huge amount of energy at the muzzle as powder is sti...

Mounting flexibility of the Octane-9

Am interested in the possibility of using an Octane-9 on a fixed barrel subgun and a SIG P229. Would prefer to use a 3 lug on the subgun and the 1/2x28 factory threads on the P229 barrel (yes mine really does have those threads). I this possible with the Octane-9 as it is with the Trident-9? If so a...

SIGs with 1/2x28 do exist for sure. Have seen a P226 done that way and own a factory threaded 1/2x28 P229.

147 gr 9mm bullets ... good options?

Guys,

Over the years I've loaded a huge number of Super and 9mm rounds. Had good success with the 147 gr Hornady XTP but always supersonic in major Super.

How does it perform just subsonic in 9mm? A better expanding projectile choice around?

Thanks!

They are reported to be not very good at it, Important to make sure you keep YOUR paperwork safe!
