    Current state and future if competitive shooting.

    There are so many factors, it's virtually an impossible question to answer. Someone above mentioned SASS (cowboy action). That sport appeals to an older crowd, but it is expensive to play. The guns aren't cheap (you need 4 of them) and ammo for the "genuine" cartridges (.38 special/.357 mag...

    Question about the open base of the Nosler Partitions

    I thought it might be a different lead hardness between .22LR bullets and the lead used in jacketed, centerfire bullets that maybe the exposed base, copper jacketed bullets might be less susceptible, or non-existent, to "vaporization". I just don't want my centerfire suppressors to fill with...

    Question about the open base of the Nosler Partitions

    Do you shoot with, and clean, rimfire suppressors? Do you know how completely coated the inside of the suppressor is? There aren't little chunks of lead inside the suppressor like you're suggesting. The inside of the suppressor is coated perfectly in lead and carbon within all of the nooks...

    Question about the open base of the Nosler Partitions

    Ok, simple observation coupled with logical deduction. I own 2 rimfire suppressors. To keep them from getting closed, one MUST clean them or so much lead (yes, lead) and carbon will build up inside of the suppressor, one can eventually induce a baffle strike. So, how does lead get deposited...

    Question about the open base of the Nosler Partitions

    I was gonna do that very thing. The white vinegar began reacting almost immediately when I plugged one end and poured it into the suppressor while upright. I've had to top it off several times and it's turning a bluish/green getting rid of the copper I suppose as well as the carbon fouling...

    Question about the open base of the Nosler Partitions

    I wrote Suppressed Armament Systems, the maker of my suppressor, and they said it will be no problem. He said just let it soak in white vinegar a couple of days, flush it out and it should be fine. Since I've never cleaned it, it might take a few times, but there is no problem. Hopefully...

    Question about the open base of the Nosler Partitions

    The reason for the Partition is penetration, even if the muzzle velocity is low...which mine is because my barrel is only 18.5". I wanna be able to use my AR for hogs and make sure I get through shield and bone. A hollow point will not do that. I have a 175 grain Sierra Matchking load that...

    Question about the open base of the Nosler Partitions

    Well, I wrote Nosler and they said to contact the manufacturer of the suppressor. Seems like they don't want to say or incur any liability with a reply either way.

    Question about the open base of the Nosler Partitions

    I'm getting 2591 FPS with the Hornady 165 BTSP Interlocks, so I would expect something similar out of the Partitions.

    Question about the open base of the Nosler Partitions

    I bought some Nosler Partition 165 grain bullets to load for a hunting load for East Tennessee deer and hogs. They'll be used in my .308 AR that I run suppressed. I see that the back of the Partition is open with exposed lead. From my experience with .22 LR, I know that the lead in .22...

    Questions re. Precision Rim Fire @ 50yd +

    25 yards from a bench doesn't really tell you anything unless your group is bad. What a bad group at 25 yards tells you is that the rifle REALLY hates that ammo, or you need to work on shooting basics and techniques. You need to be good enough to tell the difference. A REALLY good group at 25...

    What do you do when you find that perfect load for your rifle?

    I'm a "set it and forget it" kinda guy. Get the testing done, be sure it's consistent, then load LOTS more.

    Gotta love downsizing while upgrading. Congrats!

    My target dissed me…

    At least it didn't tell you to straight up "LEAVE THE RANGE".

    How do you keep your direct thread suppressor from backing off?

    It's the 18.5" Criterion barrel from Fulton Armory...plenty of shoulder.

    How do you keep your direct thread suppressor from backing off?

    Teflon tape resists high temps? I don't do mag dumps, but my suppressor gets pretty hot.

    Fulton Armory

    I can't speak to the M14 rifles they offer, but both my brother and I bought Criterion barrels from them and are THOROUGHLY satisfied. I have a .308 barrel and he has a 6.5 Creedmoor barrel.

    Can you explain the difference between actual chrono numbers and ammo company numbers?

    Good question...how CAN one determine if the chronograph is correct? 30-06 wasn't the only ammo or cartridge tested that day. My brother and I shot 3 different factory loadings through his 6.5 Creedmoor, my 30-06, .22 LR (2 different lots of Lapua Pistol OSP), a .223 69-grain handload and a...

    How do you keep your direct thread suppressor from backing off?

    Pretty simple subject...I shot my 308 AR with my direct thread SAS Arbiter this past weekend to get some test hunting loads zeroed and chronographed. They did great, but at the end of the session (total of 15 rounds) the accuracy went a little haywire. After the last shot was done, I checked...
