Those remind me of the 1911 my grandfather carried through WW2. He was a paratrooper in the 504th PIR and that gun was with him all through Europe and north Africa (along with his .30 carbine). He gave them to my uncle who eventually pawned them when he was running low on money. Really, really wish I could get those two guns back

Just picked up a Rem 700 SPS tactical 308 today. Got some leupold mk4 rings and TO bases coming. hopefully it's a 1/2 moa gun out of the box like I have read. Glass is a Nightforce 5.5x22x50 illuminated ret mil dot. I have sooo much work to do on this gun. my first bolt gun ..got my fingers crossed

You picked a nice one, though. The 700 SPS is a great rifle. Make sure you stick with a good ammunition to both sight your rifle in and then continue to use for the most consistent grouping.

I made the mistake of switching ammos too much to try and find the best, when I should have just stuck with the Hornady Sierra Match Kings I used first and use now. Would've saved me a lot of money and headache if I had just started with those in the beginning.

I have one of those, I posted a pic of it earlier in this thread. It's an awesome gun, I love mine to death. Good luck!

That's why I'm leaning toward getting a .308 next and load subsonic. Less powder will eventually show as savings, and I'm probably just going to stick to 100-200 yards on that gun and leave the cannon for longer ranges.

my buddy suggested 190 gr sierra match king and running them subsonic. he says they are really quiet. of course he's suppressed .

I'm thinking the next box of 500 Sierra MKs is going to be of the 190gr variety. Looks like those will work for 200+ with the .300 WM and make for decent .308 subsonic rounds. Does the .308 use Federal 210M primers or can I feed it some of the 215Ms that I'm using for the .300 WM?

You can use Mags in non-mag calibers, just start a grain down and work up. They will change the groupings.

I've always been under the assumption that using mag primers in non-mag calibers could cause dangerous changes in pressure inside the casing due to faster ignition of the powder. Dropping a grain down would help, but wouldn't you still be risking more rapid detonation of the powder in a more enclosed environment, and wouldn't that still be dangerous?

I could be completely off on that, but I would just spend the $40 for 1000 non-mag primers if it were my gun. My reloading isn't up to Garrett's ability, especially since I reload much more handgun ammunition than rifle, but I still would rather be safe than sorry.

The reason I ask is because I bought a case of 5000 Federal 215Ms last year when primers were scarce. I've heard mixed reviews of the use of mags in non-mag reloads. It probably wouldn't hurt to use a slower-burning powder like I do in the .300. It isn't a big deal to get a case of 210M though, they aren't that expensive and they seem to be more common than the magnum versions.

You can interchange them, but it's wise to drop a grain or two before working back up. In a rifle, the primers will chrono slightly faster, but it's not majorly significant. In a handgun, you can easily interchange between the two with no change.

Most of the difference is the ability of the primer to withstand higher pressures in the flash hole and resist deformation / blow-out.

It's common to even use rifle primers in handgun calibers like 9mm Major.

Match primers give a much slower burn rate from my experience than a standard primer.

Recently got a Big Chubby and tried it out on the AR-10. Helps alot with recoil but is tons louder and a nice slap to anyone standing off to the side .
Also got a Magpul ACS-L installed, going to try to shoot it this weekend, it's much more sturdy than the stock butt stock and hopefully better in other ways.

Got a question for the fellow reloaders here. I'm using nickel plated brass casings for my .40 S&W +P loads since the metal is harder than standard brass. Do I still get the same amount of reloads out of them as the regular eight times for brass? Or can I reload them more since they're a stronger case and are subject to less metal warping?

Anyone have a spare Aimpoint T1 2moa that they would like to trade for a LMT 14.5 inch upper with a KAC RAS?

I use the nickel-plated casings I got from a couple boxes of Federal Premium (I think you shot some of them) for hunting loads because the nickel is less likely to tarnish in those conditions. I've heard from some people not to bother with them at all, or if you do to limit the number of times you reload them. I'd worry the nickel plating covers up weak spots in the brass so that you don't notice them.

I don't see why you couldn't continue to use good brass for +P. You may not get the same number of reloads from them (not sure how pistol brass flows/trims) but seems like you won't from the nickel-plated either. If you're going to keep them in a leather bandolier then yeah, go nickel
