Re: All Titanium can for .223

Make some powder funnels, great practice! I know of no way to machine an entire baffle on the lathe without turning it around....on second thought, there is a way, but it's not a very good way. You'd end up holding it by just the tip. and having to drill a deep hole that my wander off center....a lo...

Re: All Titanium can for .223

So do you put the baffle in a fixture to machine the "inside" I'd like to see pics of you setup for doing the other side of the baffle. Or do you just re indicate it in once you do the front. My can design has 11 baffle for .308 seems like I may reduce that a bit.. I machine the bore thru hole, the...

Re: Handguards large enough to cover a suppressor

The majority of your cons do not apply to my set up. I'm not sure what rail you've had these issues with, but the seekins rail I'm sporting on this gun seems very thought out, design wise. Not trying to start a pissing contest here, but I like this rifle. I've got a short one also from AAC, but I pr...

Re: Handguards large enough to cover a suppressor

It's all personal preference anyway. If I set up my stuff to "look cool" anyway then I'd be a mall ninja vs. a true shooter. :lol: I'm still not finding any "negatives" about this setup though. At least with a direct thread silencer. Qd would be crappy to unscrew I guess. Heat isn't an issue, it is ...

Re: 7mm08 hole size

I would start at .060" above projectile diameter. With that generic answer given. I tailor my thru bore based on the concentricity of my cans, but it's likely not as easy to check on a monocore. I've made one very very tight bore on a rim fire can, but it was absolutely perfect on the runout. There ...

Re: 300 series stainless as tube material

I think from a engineering point you would have a reinforced chamber and not a combined thickness chamber I could be wrong. I'm no engineer, but I definitely fit deeply inside the realm of "mad scientist". If the spacer is snugly fit between the blast baffle, and the rear cap, and is a solid piece....

Re: 300 series stainless as tube material

Looking at my Specwar that's what I figured. So the blast chamber is actually Stellite? The tube isn't taking the pressure? Blast chamber is not stellite, the baffles are stellite. So the 316SS tube is able to contain that pressure? How can I be sure my 316SS tube can take the pressure from a 10" b...

What was your wall thickness on the tube? And how did you get the engraving done?
.070" thickness on tube.

and I have a deal worked out with the jeweler next to my drugstore. I trade drugs for engraving services.

Re: Any new insight???

I'm not real good at predicting the future. but I gotta tell you I saw this coming from way out and I stockpiled accordingly way before the panic.

I have been smiling the whole way through just waiting for things to come back.

not to mention the shooting daily. all calibers, no worries.

Have you actually seen a can damaged directly from this after firing?

Calibers ranged from 9mm through 308. T...

Re: titanium anodizing

That is "flame anodizing". Not recommended for anything requiring any strength as it damages the structure of the titanium.
