    Rainier Ultramatch MOD2 Barrel Testing - 6.5cm, 224V, 223 Wylde, 300 BLK

    Glad I found this thread! I was about to start a build and found a Rainier Match barrel I liked.... Anyone know what the difference is from the Match to Ultra Match? Thanks!

    Form 4 wait time

    Thanks Mercracing... That makes me feel a little better! I was a afraid I'd be getting the stamps for these in 2020 sometime!

    Form 4 wait time

    Thanks KC.... I think it depends more on the examiner you get than anything else. I have a couple of suppressors already, sure wish they would take that into account. Way too much logic in that though! I bet your buddy is pissed! I would be.... LOL

    Form 4 wait time

    I just paid for two cans yesterday through Silencer Shop but I have one of the older style trusts with three other people on it rather than the single shot trust. Am I reading everyone's experiences correctly that if you have multiple trustees you can pretty much add about 6 months to the...

    What caliber for a LA 700?

    I had the same situation a few years ago and ended up building a 6.5x55AI. Same ballistics as a 6.5x284 but better barrel life and cheaper brass. It is crazy accurate and you can push a 140 grain bullet 3000fps without too much trouble. It is a killer hunting round.... If you don't reload, I...

    458 Socom

    Thanks everybody for the input. Strykervet, sounds like you were really on the very front edge of the big bore ARs. That is a really cool story and I appreciate you sharing it. My biggest reason for considering the 458 Socom over the other similar cartridges is that I already own a Sico...

    458 Socom

    I don't have kids, but I have two nephews who I take shooting as often as I can. They are great kids and both of them are pretty mechanically inclined. I mentioned building an AR15 with them and they were very excited about it. Problem is... I already have several of them in 223 and...

    I don't want to hijack the thread but I thought everyone might enjoy this. Here is some interesting reading .... A customer sent it to me a while back and I learned a lot from it. Hope it helps everyone! Wish I could come shoot the match but that is not going to happen...

    New 5-25x50 Vudu

    They are a big operation so I guess they would get them about as soon as anyone else. $400 off is a good deal

    New 5-25x50 Vudu

    Wow... I guess so? I just checked their site a few days ago and they were $1999. It may be a Memorial day sale or something...... At that price, it is REALLY tempting! Sure wish I knew a delivery date

    Nearly half way into the year, what scopes are you waiting on to come out or purchase?

    That is perfect, Thanks! I wasn't sure if these were going to cross the 4K mark... Definately a lot of money though!

    Nearly half way into the year, what scopes are you waiting on to come out or purchase?

    I am most interested in the Revic Mil version or the EO Tech 5-25 Vudu but I am not completely sold on either one at this point. I like the looks of the ZCO 4-20 as well but I have a feeling the pricing will be more than I can handle. Would you mind messaging me the approximate pricing on...

    Delta P Brevis

    Thanks for the info guys! That Specter looks great! I was really just curious more than anything as I have not heard them talked about at all. I assume their sound suppression and accuracy is pretty much on par with everyone else? Seems like this would make a great can for a hunting...

    6.5x55

    I may have some data for you... It has been a while since I did much shooting with my 6.5x55 but it seems like I did a little testing with this powder. I will have to check my notes when I get home tonight.

    Delta P Brevis

    I came across these on Kelblys website and was curious if anyone knew much about them? I like the short length and the fact that it is nearly all once piece but they are pricey... Anybody have one, I would love to hear about personal experience thanks!

    Interesting about the feeding issues with the .284... I have been thinking of doing a 280AI and now I am wondering if I will have the same issue. Has anyone tried 280AI?

    Revic now shipping!

    Lowlight, please let us know if the group buy will include the Mrad version.... I would be very interested in that even if it ships at a later date. Thanks

    I have had a DT covert for a couple of years now but only have one barrel. I have been considering several things but was curious what everyone's experience has been with Ackley Improved cartridges. Very little body taper and sharp shoulders... Do they feed alright or does that create...

    6.5x55 Swede users?

    I haven't been around in quite a long time. It is great to see that this thread is still going! I have 6.5x55AI on a Rem 700 that I built back at the end of 2013 if I remember correctly. It is an amazing rifle and I love the cartridge.... I bought a Desert Tech covert about two years ago...
