Finally got the red dot i've been eyeing for a while now for my AR. Sighted in this bad boy at 50 yards this morning. With all parts I've wanted for this rifle, this project is considered "finished" for now.

Now off to my 11.5 AR build.....

So - I am really wanting to get into reloading. ANy here current doing it? I will probably only load about 200 rounds at a time, so I don't need anything too crazy. Any advice?

Reloading is something I definitely want to get into. However it's another thing to learn and another thing to put time into. Since I am only shooting 9mm and 556 at the moment, it's not really worth it for me to invest the time and money into it. It's definitely something I will get into when I buy a .308 and get into precision shooting. Hopefully bythe end of this year.

I currently reload for 9mm, 8x57 and 308. I have the basic Lee Pro 1000 for the 9mm. If i hit it hard, i can load about 500 rounds and hour. For the rifle rounds, its a slow and meticuloud process. For me to load about 1k 9mm will cost about $200 in materials.

I haven't priced out the materials costing yet, but I plan to reload for .357, .38 Special, and 7mm Rem MAG. All of those are costly when store bought. Just trying to read on what press/equipment to seriously consider.

i guess it really depends on your budget. I picked up the pro1000 off CGN with the 9mm setup for like $150. The rifle press i bought the Lee 50th anniversary set, they're going for $150 new right now. I guess it comes down to how much your willing to spend and how much you are going to reload. I only every make it out shooting only a handful of times a year so i really don't need a machine that can pump out thousands in no time as i haven't gotten to that type of demand for ammo yet. Don't get me know, i still keep around 5k of rounds total of various calibers ready to go at any time.

I spoke to Henry at BudgetShooterSupply today. Looking at setting me up with Lee Turret Press Kit, dies, primers, 2000 rounds of bullets for 38 and 357, couple pounds of powder, all for under $500. He doesn't have any 7mm MAG dies right now.

Seems fair, he spoke to me for some time and I have heard a lot of good things about him from other local people that have dealt with him.

yes, Henry is a great buy, and he lives about 15 mins from me. I purchase most of my reloading supplies from him, great guy to deal with. Only thing to watch out with a turret when your pumping out rounds is to make sure you full stroke the ram. A slight short stroke can end up with a squib. such a pain as your blasting off rounds adn the click, no bang but the bullet is lodged into the barrel. Lucky every time it has happened to me the bullet wasnt far enough down the barrel to be able to fully seat the next round.

^ going to see what he gets back to me with price wise, he's putting together a package price for me. However, I found a few grips and two new barrels for my Dan Wesson tonight, kinda blew more than I wanted to but it is worth it.

Henry is a good guy. We got some powder from him a while back. Now I need to talk to him again about some 45/70 dies. I paid $54.99 for a box of 20 45/70 rounds.

Granted, it is an elephant gun with bullets larger than the average revscene user's peepee.
It's the one on the left side, next to the .308

Quote came in - including powder and bullets for the .357 it was $949. Going to have to wait a little to pull that off.

Eternal, so that bottom one which you showed before is the modded 10-.22 right?

if so, so what do you get as the base model before the build?

I'd go base model imo

I have customer's who change everything and the only thing that's stock is the receiver

quick question here is everyone here just into restricted, plinkers, hunters or all the above?

happy Friday guys

the G36 look alike is a base model 10/22. Like incubus said, if your changing out everything, no point paying for the higher model and take all the goodies off.

I'm more into plinking, target shooting. The odd friendly competition between friends, 3 gun style on their farms.

Hondaracer - if you want to do your own build, start with a Dlask receiver and go from there.

incubus - I'm into all the above now. Started plinking and hunting, have now moved onto restricted hand guns. I quite like shotgun trap shooting as well. It's all good, albeit expensive.

one thing to remember about the dlask receiver is that depending on the stock you want, it may or may not fit due to the integrated rail on top of the receiver.

It's a ton of fun. I'm having a hell of a time finding a set of peep sights for it. Not so much finding the sights, but getting over spending $200 on sights and a rail, and another $2.75/shot.

I can't imagine how guys who own cannons feel when they add up the cost of their passion.

The initial cost is high, but it will pay off in the long run. I'm heading out to test some .223 and 9mm reloads that my brother was toying with. They're + loads, so we're trying them in the Jericho 941. That gun is a beast.

If the .223 cycle in my T97 without problems, they'll work in anything.

All of the above!
We pink for fun and sport, betting with friends, etc. But in the end it's all about having confidence in my equipment and skills, making one shot kills when I'm called upon. The last thing I want to do is chase a wounded animal into the bush. I don't like my food to suffer.

If I knew how much I was going to put into my 10/22, I would have started with a Dlask like my buddy recommended.

At least I started with a base model.

With the integrated rail is this an issue that is like, won't work period with some stocks due to design or it will work with some modification?

it won't work period. Depending on the stock, in my case with the g36 stock, it would not fit as the receiver sits inside the stock completely. I guess if the stock exposes the top i don't see it not fitting, or at least will fit with minor mods
