    With the magnum mag and 10 rounds, it will feed and extract as fast as you can work the bolt.

    Is there a “go to” can for 16” AR .556

    It's probably too new to be in folks hands yet, but here is a TBAC video on it. - Carl

    Anyone else excited for baseball season?

    Fuck no. All of these assholes make way too much money for doing jack shit. If I had to pick a team, Red Sox but see above ^^^.

    Is there a “go to” can for 16” AR .556

    Mile High Shooting Accessories has them in stock. I was looking at (fondling :)) them a couple of weeks ago and I was impressed. - Carl

    Is there a “go to” can for 16” AR .556

    I currently have Surefire cans for my AR's but if I was buying now, I would seriously look at the new Thunder Beast 556 take down suppressor. It is full auto rated and designed to meet the 2017 USSOCOM Suppressor Upper Receiver Group (SURG) requirements. See...

    I do not believe that you can get a magnum bolt for an AX308.. Anyways, I believe that he short action AX mag is a little too narrow to work. The rounds will load in the mag but they will pop out if you jar the mag. I could load up the mag but even inserting it into the mag well can cause the...

    You might want to give MHSA (Mile High Shooting Accesories) a call. They have the reamer and stock Bartlein and Proof barrel blanks. - Carl

    Optics decision

    The warranty period for S&B in the USA is now 20 years according to S&B USA. Frank talks about it in his review of the S&B 5-45 last year. https://www.snipershide.com/sb-5-45x56mm-high-power-review/ - Carl

    The AI AXMC has 3 bolts available - Lapua Magnum, Magnum and 308 bolt face (along with the corresponding 3 different magazine sizes/lengh). So basically you can run any cartridge that fits within that envelope. I might be able to run this (the 6.5 PRC) with the 308 mag as well but the magnum mag...

    6.5 prc

    Yes, he does have some sort of 7mm wildcat now so I think that you are right - he probably just want to size, prime, dump powder, push bullet in and go shoot :) I have done the 50BMG, 338LM, 300WM, 308, various wildcats before - I was looking for something faster than the 6.5CM but still simple...

    Yes, I'm using the Magnum bolt and the Magnum mags. Filled a mag in the store with 10 rounds and the rounds cycled thru as fast as one could work the bolt. If I have a problem with the rounds moving forward and back in the overly long mag, I'm going to build a nylon insert of some type.

    6.5 prc

    A friend of mine was considering doing this exact same thing. But after looking at the 6.5 PRC, he changed his mind and is having a custom built around it instead. He does not plan on buying factory ammo, he bought supplies to reload. He has a lot of H1000, Retumbo, etc. that he plans on doing...

    Thanks - hoping to get out and shoot it soon with the 6.5 PRC. Yep, I also have an S&B 3-27 on a 20.6 moa Spuhr, that I also use on this rig (for a total of 50.6 moa inclination). Gives me a 100 yd zero and 32.4 mils of elevation on the knob - for those LONG shots :)

    I just picked up my AI AXMC 6.5 PRC barrel from MHSA today. They have a carbide reamer and have several builds being machined now.

    Close, I think that it's about 50 fps slower, but having factory ammo is nice too.

    Schmidt-Bender PMII erector travel specifications?

    Well, I never do that but I don't return it to zero all of the time either. <shrugs>
