Re: huge gun auction in IL

I don't know about pick up, but I attended the new years day auction this year in person. Needless to say, it was a good day for sellers. Not so much for buyers that were looking for a bargain. The had a NIB FsN that went for way too much. I don't remember exactly, but I think I stopped bidding at $...

Re: Electronic Powder Drop

D, Thanks for the response. You are going way beyond my simple reasoning. My thinking is as follows: The digital scale displays only in one tenth grain increments. (Maybe this can be changed?) So a reading of 36.2 could be anywhere from 36.151 to 36.250, with no way of knowing where it lies along th...

Re: Electronic Powder Drop

I just got the RCBS combo. What I don't like, is that you can be off as far as .0499 grains either way, and have no idea. I've only used it once, and this was to load some ladders with Varget. I'm going to re-weigh on a balance beam for a double check. It's probably not much of an issue, except when...

Re: Loading the PS90 Magazine

In a zombie war, I think I would prefer to carry my PS90 over any of my ARs. Several reasons - Less length hanging on my back. I could carry more ammo given the same bulk. Easier to maneuver in close quarters. Less frequent mag change. (Well maybe not, if it takes more shots to knock one down. In th...

Re: Good Deal for Dillon 550

Do a search on sold items on eBay. I think you will find that used Dillon presses go for nearly new price. Something about the forever warranty I think.

Re: Pulling apart factory loaded ammo and reloading

doesn't the same thinking go for the primer? What makes you think the primer is consistent from round to round or lot to lot?

Re: bought 5.7 ammo RECENTLY?

First post...I just recently panicked and bought my first FsN (Colorado resident) and ammunition and spare clips from GunBroker.com for WAY more than I had any business paying. And now I find myself in the same boat as the rest, wondering if I will ever find any ammunition available for less than $...

When you illustrate your willingness to buy at $50.00, you are effectively raising the price for everyone!

Re: sharing Basspro ammo availability ; 4 what's it worth

Did you ask "Can I place an order for ammo to be shipped to me or my local store?" This might get you in line, and it might be sooner that Dec 13. The date might just be their target for stock replenishment after all current and future customer orders are fulfilled.

Re: no more gun shows on tv

Haha, my source. Sorry professor, would you like that in MLA or APA format? I did a cursory search on the internet because I felt like I haven't seen a gun show on tv in quite some time. Sons of Guns is not even "On Demand" anymore. I was just checking to see if any of you guys noticed or knew wher...

Re: FN 5.7 handgun shortage

I first saw a FsN at the Peoria IL Gander Mountain a few months ago. When I decided I wanted one, I went back a couple weeks later, and it was gone. When I spotted one at a small store in a small northern IL town last month, I snapped it up. As far as the shortage, how many people do you know with m...

Re: FsN Magazine versions and the CMMG extension

Thank you for the quick replies. I got 3 "new" mags from fnh us last week. All three are not "new" style, as they have no internal rib on the front side.
