    Best 5.56 ammo for a 1:9 twist

    I have a stainless 1:9" PSA upper that shoots the ADI 69gr Sierra SMK ammo into tiny groups. I couldn't ask for better performance at $12.99/20 round box. Cabelas stocks it.

    How to paint a gun multi-cam??

    I did this, using this method. I started with a tan base coat, then added a brown fade. Then I applied stencils, trying to preserve tan/ brown transitions, and be random. I over sprayed with three greens. Then I went back with masks and added the dark brown and the off white accents. It...

    What can I use to strengthen a syn. 700 stock

    I filled the forearm of a Savage synthetic. I used a burr in a dremel to "tooth" the channel, then brushed on a coat of contact cement as a bonding agent. I laid in two carbon arrow shafts and filled everything with JB Weld. Worked perfectly. Very stiff, almost no deflection, even on a bipod. A...

    AKS-74 gets MD-06 Red Dot and M.I. Mount -- But will it RUN?

    Well dang. I was looking forward to hearing how nice that set-up is. PA should take care of you, but busted kit always puts a damper on range time.

    Warning about the SureFire earpro

    I'm confused. You broke your earpro, and stayed at the range? And you self diagnosed your injuries? And came here to rant?

    Anti HB 4774 rally in Lansing, MI

    Shootingthebreeze, you're either naive, or willfully ignorant of the motives of the groups you support. Legislating the law-abiding isn't the problem or the solution.

    what is the best way to store guns for 1-year or more?

    A light coat of oil, inside and out, stored in a locked cabinet. Don't store guns in soft/hard cases where they touch foam or lining. 1yr is nothing. There are guns in my safe I haven't touched in a year.
