    Is HBN worth the effort or is it snake oil?

    I shoot factory loads in the guns that get the most use so I'm not gonna stop that just to add HBN but for the guns I pretend I am capable with at ELR might be worth trying. If just the lowering of SD is true it would be worth it in that case... @Huskydriver, don't you need to add another step...

    Is HBN worth the effort or is it snake oil?

    Damn it, sounds like another step to add in the process....

    Is HBN worth the effort or is it snake oil?

    Moly was always too much effort with not enough return. Now that HBN has been around a while is there a general consensus on realized benefits? HBN was touted to extend barrel life, lower SD, increase BC, no cold bore offset. All with no downside. Are these true or myth?

    Am I crazy or is this guy dumb? Serious question...

    We aren’t commenting on what we don’t know, we are commenting on what he posted. If you think posting this kind of thing on social media is a net win for the gun community, you are wrong.

    224V in a Shorty Bolt....stupid?

    I’m not sure about other rounds, but I‘ve been following the Valkyrie threads as it interests me. As far as I know the polymer mags have been a complete PITA and failure as noted by Reubenski. If you run a mag built for 6.8SPC or 224 Valkyrie it appears to fix the issue. I’ve got a Valkyrie...

    224V in a Shorty Bolt....stupid?

    Where are you coming up with the feeding issues? The only thing I've heard of is problems using the magpul mags, fixed issue by using metal mags. @lowlight is running a Bighorn Origin in 224 Valkyrie with stellar results. Perhaps he can comment on the best setup...

    Ballistic Package for a Beginner

    I agree that the Hornady app is top notch and its free so very hard to beat. If you shoot Hornady bullets its a no brainer. Many apps allow limited use for free and are worth checking out - Strelok, Trasol, BallisticsArc

    Am I crazy or is this guy dumb? Serious question...

    If he is trying to convince me that full auto is safe for the masses, FAIL. Maybe I just don't understand social media but I'll wager he's not helping. Probably gets plenty of views for shock value but as far as responsible firearm use and promotion its gonna be more negative than positive...

    Youth PRS build, caliber?

    224 Valkyrie fits the bill nicely

    Am I crazy or is this guy dumb? Serious question...

    This guy probably drops 1k rounds in a single trip, cool for him. Typical type that doesn't have any awareness of others at the range, not checking the line before trying to go down to see if he got 2 bullets in a target at 25 yards, just going live without giving anybody a heads up, and...

    If you could move..... Where ?

    -27 on October 30th this year..... You must be referring to the average temperature swing in a single day in July or August! ETA: The eskimos are migrating back to Siberia cause this shit it too cold.....

    And this guy is a perfect example of why I hate public ranges.... that and the fact they are always 500 yards too short!

    New Schmidt and Bender DT II+/MT II with .05 MIL Turrets

    Thanks for the additional info. I'm a big fan of MTC turrets so the low profile turrets with the added features look really nice.
