I do get a kick out of these…
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!
Its 1972. As if the 357Mag was not enough power, here comes the 357 automag .357AMP [9×33 mm]. Offered originally as a 2nd barrel to go with the 44AMP, they just aren’t all that common. For years I’ve wanted one, and that day has finally arrived!
357 automag ammo is made by necking down 44automag brass to a 357mag bullet, I have everything I need to make this (and I have) But I also have another collectible, orig box of 357automag SuperVel ammo.
A couple Sundays ago, I spent the day at http://www.volusiacountygunandhuntclub.com/ to gain my RSO certification. This title allows me to be “the man” at the range, responsible for everything that goes on while I’m in charge. While the thought of being responsible for 40 random people shooting scares me a little, I’m sure I’ll get used to it, and with what I’ve learned in the class I have the tools I need to do it safely. It also allows me to open the range early, or keep it open later in the day. This is helpful for people that work later in the day but still like to shoot.
While at the range today, my 10/22 had a ton of mag issues. Seemed like there was no spring pressure left. Didn’t have a 9/64th allen with me to open them but by the time I got home they seemed better. Just in case you wondered how they are built, its pretty simple.When putting it back together, you need to tighten the cap nut at least 6 steps for it to work well.
