Got to test out the 223 rounds today

Thanks to everyone that has been answering my questions regarding loading 223 lately. I think we finally have a handle on it.

It was beautiful in the local mountains today. Me and El_Nin0619 loaded until midnight last night and got up at 6 this morning to test out the rounds.

The all shot perfectly. Very accurate and no feed problems.

I took some pics. Enjoy

Some of the weapons and reloads:

A couple more in the truck:

El_Nin0619 has decided that if he can't find a job soon he's going to go after osama bin laden for the bounty. He figures the best way to go about it would be to pose as a member of the taliban and infiltrate them from inside.

Congrats to you, sir...

Can I just point out that I've seen a shotgun barrel bulge out (a lot!) after it picked up snow in the barrel doing something similar to what you're doing in this pic (bore was obstructed, bird flew up.... ugly)? I know you don't have snow there, but mud could be worse. Something for your consideration.

Seriously, congratulations again. Now you're hooked for life.

I am fully aware of that, as you can see the chamber is open. All for posing. But you do have a very valid point for people who may not be aware. Thanks.

I also tried out the mag i did a little work on this week. .Wish some of you guys lived closer, so we could have a little GT shooting Party

By the way me and XDRoX had a blast. So thanks for all the helpful info.

And I thought it was just 'black guns' that were evil... I now stand corrected.

Hey, Abdul, or what ever you're calling yourself in those soon to be mug shots... how come you're shouldering a 12 and there's a 20 gauge hull at your feet?

Nice Banana Republic cargo pants by the way. Do you and Little Stevie shop together?

Oh jack, That's because i live on planet earth and other people inhabit it also, and shot 20g . As for the pants, they are hiking pants, maybe ones you should try out sometime and give your brain a little more circulation.As for Abdul, that's a good one But 20 gauge just means more shot in the hull right?

Less.




Jack, it's going to be tough for fellas hung like a light switch to understand the need for a pair of hiking pants with a gusseted crotch. Let me just say it's a bit of a relief for guys like me.
