Finished my .300BO pistol, haven't taken it out yet. pic pending

Put some decent quality red dot sights on both the 5.56 carbines and sighted in again after a couple years in the safe.

Installed and zeroed a Bushnell 3-9x scope on the 6.5 Grendel, it was too windy for good groups but we had fun popping some Tannerite at 200 yards.



Put a JMT single stage trigger into one of the builds (and now I don't remember which one ) but I definitely liked it. http://jamesmadisontactical.com/sabe...op-in-trigger/

Nice vanity shot there. Can you use that as a range or does someone else own it?

Where is that if you dont mind me asking? Never shot on public land before. How does it work? You just roll up and start plinking? Do you also police your own brass?

For me in AZ, I have to be out of the town limits. Find something with a decent backstop and of course follow all gun safety rules, especially if you are shooting long rage. There is a spot about 10 miles from my house that is used by many of the local residents. Yes you should clean up after yourself, but unfortunately that's not always the case

It's northeast of Bend, Oregon.

All common sense long range rules apply. Find a quiet, safe spot and have at it. We verified there were no open roads or trails out in the valley, set up our table, hiked out to set up targets at several different distances, and cleaned up thoroughly after ourselves when finished.

There are some restricted areas, our local BLM office and county both provide maps like this (PDF): https://www.blm.gov/or/districts/pri...d_shooting.pdf

In my mind, that is right off the hard granite railing of your living room balcony.

Man, I wish. We're in a housing development, it's not the home I thought I wanted but it's damn near zero maintenance so I can (well, could) go play on the weekends instead of mowing the lawn.

More dry fire and built a 12.5" pistol I'm looking forward to shooting.

Don't think I've gone this long without live fire for 5+ years.

Got 90% of the pond clearing finished which leaves some time to do some shooting. Going to put the PA 1-6x scope on the 10.5 SBR and sight it in hopefully tomorrow.

Once I get the 10.5" upper sighted with the suppressor on it I am going to take the 16" upper I have apart and put a 300BO 8.5 barrel on it with a 10.5" handguard with a 1.5in ID so that my SiCo Saker will fit nice and snug in the handguard. Then I am going to shoot some subsonic shit. Between the sub 300BO rounds and my AR9 with 147gr subs I will ruin someone/things day totally quietly.

I have a ton of vacation hours at work and they won't alter policy to let us accrue over the cap so I am taking Mondays off for the next month or so and plan to get my rifles dialed in.

Question: is it normal for a mag to have a hard time properly seating with the bolt closed? Im trying to adjust the tension on the mag release but often times I have to give it an extra whack so that the mag will stick once I insert it into the well.

Down-load one or two rounds and see if the situation improves. Be safe, do not use live rounds.

Depends on the gun/configuration and mag.

I've got ARs that take 30 round Pmags, and ones that like 28/29.

There's no reason to not use live rounds, that's just silly.
