  1. Ruger Mini-14 and Mini-30
    In reading a number of posts it appears that you all like either the XM193 55 gr. bullet or the M855 62 gr. bullet. I think the XM 193 bullet is what I want to use, BUT I see that Federal American Eagle offers the XM 193 bullet in a loaded round that sells for $.48 a round at Midway. That seems...
  2. AR-15 Talk
    I built myself an AR-15 to use for predator control. Coyotes and other "pest" have been killing my chickens. This is the build I came up with: Palmetto State Armory Freedom upper receiver. Instead of chrome lined the Freedom series barrels have a melonite finish. Twist is 1:7. 16 inch...
  3. Ruger Mini-14 and Mini-30
    This pretty much puts to bed the notion that its 55 gr. cannelured FMJ/BT bullet does not perform like the USGI M193 fodder. Really like this ammo. GR
  4. Ruger Mini-14 and Mini-30
    I have some new American Eagle 5.56 AR ammo. Is this okay to use in my Ruger Mini-14 Ranch rifle of the 196-xxxxx era? Thanks for any input.

    Its about a buck a bullet now for 223 this is F'ing insane. Will we ever have normal prices again? I need a raise to support my gun habit.
  6. Reloading
    I aquired 10+ lbs of .223 / 5.56 cases I was going thru them and found several where the necks were split. What causes this? Can they be used for something else? I know there are some calibers that be made from other caliber cases.

    Anyone see any decent prices on hunting rounds online? this is getting to be real bull****. Why have the manufacturers not geared up allready?
  8. Rifle Reloading Forum
    I am needing some command guidance on some reloaded 223 ammo a hunting friend loaded from ages ago did for me. Its been 15yrs or so but I tried load it in my mag for the mini 14 and the very front of the bullet hits the edge of the magazine. Do you think I could just push the bullet down in the...

  10. Ruger Mini-14 and Mini-30
    This may not be the appropriate forum to post this but I'm going to anyway. I have owned the Mini 14 for over a year and my favorite plinking ammo (Federal American Eagle 223 Remington 55 Grain Full Metal Jacket Boat Tail) has gone up over $1 per box. Since I buy by the case I have often...
  11. Ruger Mini-14 and Mini-30
    Good vid showing the MINI 14 at 200 yards. I think the guy was rushing too much but he got some hits.
  12. Ruger Mini-14 and Mini-30
    Just like the title says which does your mini 14 shoot better 223 or556 ?

  14. Bolt Action Talk
    A practical, and shared caliber rifle in the GSR model. Now that bolt gun would be fun (and economical) to shoot.
  15. AR-15 Talk
    Over the past few months I have been looking at buying another AR. After doing a good bit of research I have narrowed down my choices to Spikes and a DS Arms. Spikes - makes a great rifle, is mil-spec, people love it. DS Arms - known more for its FN/FAL then its AR-15s. The thing is, I have a...
  16. AR-15 Talk
    From this page, which rifle and why? AR15-M16 Rifles-D S Arms Please, lets keep the cost at around $1,000 or less. The rifles I am looking at are the: DSZM4CV1R DSZM4CV1RCL I would like something with a flattop. My other options are a S&W M&P, or maybe even a Spikes. If you know of...

    Scottsdale Gun Club touts the LMT as very reliable, but it sells for $ 1249. sells the Spikes Tactical for $ 770. I'd like to buy from a bricks and mortar dealer so I can get quick service on any issues, but the price difference is an issue. Any opinions?
  18. Ruger Mini-14 and Mini-30
    In an earlier post I wrote about the fact I could not get my brand new Mini-14 to zero on the iron sights. Even with the rear sight peep drifted all the way to the right, it still shot a bit to the left of the bull. I packed it up and sent it back to Ruger on their dime. That was two weeks ago...
  19. AR-15 Talk
    I would like some suggestions on what is the best AR-15 in the sub-$1,000 price range. Some of the rifles I have looked at are: Bushmaster DS Arms DPMS S&W M&P Stag Arms Colt Chamber must be 5.56mm Flat top would be nice 16 inch barrel Lifetime warranty would be nice Rifle is going to be...
  20. Ruger Mini-14 and Mini-30
    Stunned by .233 to 5.56…. I see a lot of postings about the difference in dimensions and pressures for .223 and 5.56 but not about how different they shoot…….read on….. I shot about 80 rounds of PMC 55gr FMJ .223 at 100 yards with a 4X scope and a bi-pod and sand bags. Pattern was within...
