Delivery from “The Creek”

One of the great things about the Knob creek shoot, after the amazing collections of rare and unusual military hardware, is the SHOPPING! People from all over the US bring an amazing bunch of things for the flea market area. One of my bring backs this time is a this can of M1Carbine 110grain projectiles. No, I was unable to attend, luckily I had a proxy!

Pyrex glass powder hopper

Just got this in today. Same capacity, this is good old pyrex glass, which will handle the chemicals in powder that turn the factory hopper into dark and cracked plastic.

Got this from http://wardlance.com/dillon.html Custom deflector and turned alum lid. Nice job overall!

The AR57 select fire debacle…

I love the idea of the 5.7, so it was all to natural to end up with a five-seven upper for my AR. When I tried that on my select fire receiver, I instantly fell into sad panda mood… Turns out the bolt carrier group provided is semi auto ONLY. Since its a special BCG, replacements were needed.

Just a pic of the two side by side shows there is not much difference, but enough to kill the giggle switch.

Wet Tumbling changed my life

Purchased a Frankford Arsenal Rotary Tumbler to give this a shot for some of my rifle ammo.

If you are even remotely thinking about getting one,

stop,

go do it.

Do it now!

I let it run for 3 hours, which was likely much longer than it needed to run, but WOW, let me say that again WOW.

After YEARS, and I mean, 20+ years of corncob, walnut, etc, I realize I was wasting my time.

This is what I started with

THIS is the real deal. Clean inside and out.


Go ahead, click it, you know you want to see what it really looks like!

The kit came with a sample soap/softener, and a pack of stainless steel pins, and its really a “dump the stuff in and hit go” This method takes a little longer, that I will admit. You need to rinse and dry the brass well, that takes some time. But the juice is worth the squeeze. Cost of operation should be less over time, as you wont be rebuying media or additive. Another plus is that you wont be breathing all that crap/dust as you sift the brass from media. That alone is worth the upgrade.

This is a full 10 out of 10 Reloader-Rob recommendation!

Why didn’t someone tell me earlier?!?!?!

Be safe, and save me your brass!
