Re: WTS 5.7 brass

Yep, I have seen some go on gunbroker for $800 for 2k brass...most goes for a bit less, every once in a while a bit more... Pretty crazy. And most of those are with another 5-15 for shipping. So for what's out there 35/100 is fair. Dang...that's flippin crazy. Makes me wonder if I shouldn't sell so...

Re: Bad day at the gun show

I used to work the International Handgunner Comperition and most years somebody would get DQ'd for an AD/ND....some were just tards, some were strong, sharp competitors. Only remember one guy actually shooting himself though....granted he only had one arm and in order to rack the slide, he would rak...

Re: lee loadmaster shell plate?

Please read the previous post - that shellplate was tried & it didn't work. Yes, that was a couple of years ago and you may also be able to modify it to work BUT, do not buy the #15 shellplate for the 5.7 & expect it to be perfect right out of the box/bag. It may take some work. Thanks, I'll keep t...

Re: reloads not working in ar-57 mags

It may be the same issue that some of use were having on our FsN mags with reloaded rounds. The resizer die was actually slightly tapered and therefore caused binding issues when loaded to full capacity with reloads. So far I've only noticed this with the Hornady dies (which have been phenomenal exc...

Re: Broke my "new" camera :( Need advice from you.

Panasonic Lumix TS2/TS3 series of underwater/outdoor cameras are awesome. Ours has survived several years worth of all the abuse that we could throw at it (which has included drops, kicks, black-diamond ski slopes...without anybody attached to the leash...ect) Love it. Kinda sucks in low light, but ...

Re: Squibs

Against the recommendations of the gun-forum commandos (99% of whom have never tried nor presented valid arguments for their opinions) you could make up a mild bullet-less "barrel clearing" load. That being said, if it's a primer-only squib, they're usually barely stuck at all and don't require much...

Re: Five Severn rear site screw

I used to have a spare...but then I loaned it to another member until he could get a replacement...and he kind of just disappeared after that.
So...yea, anyway. I could have sold you that one, but instead I unintentionally gave it away.

Re: Concealed carry - smaller gun

Well, they both serve a purpose.

The one interesting omitted spec between those two is the barrel length. 2.9 vs. 3.3

Re: Concealed carry - smaller gun

Or take a look at the Boberg XR9-S.

Great mousegun in 9mm.
Also, given the design, it would be interesting to see it in 5.7 :-)

Re: Double Barrel AR, What Next?

I wouldn't turn down a double barreled AR if someone gave it to me. It might not be all that practical (kind of like dual wielding) for most scenarios, however I bet it would still be fun to shoot. Now something that I would be more interested in paying good money for would be their new pistol AR: h...

Re: Reloading Questions

It looks like the round has an actual crimp, so unless he has a really shallow margin on his crimp die and was catching the top of the die I'd doubt that was the culprit. I don't see any shaved copper from the jacket, so I don't think it was necessarily pressed into an unexpanded case either. My gue...
