Is it still a flashlight?

Just curious if I can still call it a flashlight even if all the kids on the playground can't see it when I turn it on?[img2=][Image/img2]

Very nice. Will is slam fire?
Slamfire it will, all the 1897 shotguns are able to do this. Rumor on the street is the new repro Norinco will do it as well.

Winchester 97 (M97 Trench Repro)

Just figured I would share this build I am currently working on. It started life as a Winchester 97 (production date 1907) and was reincarnated as a M97 Trenchgun replica. Cut the barrel to 20 inches, added heat shield with bayo lug, new furniture and refinished the gun/wood. All I need to finish is...

Re: Thermal Micro Sights

A few days behind the power curve but have one of these and mounted it to my G17 for home defense. Neat little piece but didn't suit what I needed so it is currently a dust collector in the safe.

Re: 5.7x28 bolt action

So I think the magic weight for the bolt gun is 40 grain (used factory AE and had good results). Granted I only got 65 yards to plink with on the range it still holds a pretty good group. I averaged 2095 FPS with factory loads. Got some pull down 40 grainers coming from EA so may be able to load up ...

Re: Elite Ammunition 50gr Subsonic in Gel :D

I have done some research where guys get fairly accurate results from 55 grain bullets in a 1:14 barrel, I may have to play with some and see what they do in my gun. I have to make some stuff up as I go along with what I read here since most everyone here has a 1:9 twist barrel and some guys probabl...

Re: Elite Ammunition 50gr Subsonic in Gel :D

Guess I should pay more attention to the subject line when I reply! What is the minimum FPS you think it what I was wanting to ask. I am still fairly new to this round as a whole, I have done tons of reading on it and minimal reloading so far but that will change. I had the pistol many moons ago and...

Re: Elite Ammunition 50gr Subsonic in Gel :D

What do you think the magic FPS is to get the desired outcome? I am running factory AE 40g FMJ right at 2100Fps.

Because subsonic 55gr FMJ 5.56/5.7 will penetrate level IIIA, .22 LR won't :D

Re: iFire's PS90 Load Data

Yep with 1x brass it is. The 35gr VG has a long shank for weight, meaning more bullet in contact with rifling, so you can't push it as fast as a same wight or even slightly heavier bullet with less shank. fantastic, guess it is time to start playing with other bullets then. I wanted some 55g sub so...

Re: iFire's PS90 Load Data

I think I have pretty descent FPS with 36g Barnes Varmint Grenades and 5.5 grains of AutoComp. Last batch was 2320 out of a 16 inch barreled bolt action. Does that seem on par with what others are getting from that barrel length or should I be getting faster? 1x fired FN Brass CCI 400 small rifle pr...

Re: 5.7x28 bolt action

Thanks, hope to get it dialed in really tight soon. Will keep updates coming in as well with handloads, I should be able to get pretty fast.

Re: 5.7x28 bolt action

So update on the 27 grain bullet problem. Turns out it might have been a range problem(my range looks like a jungle at the moment), there were a few blades of tall grass in front of my target and I believe the bullet was hitting those and starting to tumble. I could be wrong but a fast moving small ...
