Wow Kappydell,

Paper patch bullets…for sure.

That is exactly how they used to do it in the olde days before gas checks.

Thanks for reminding me.

Not sure , however, if it would work well in a magazine fed rifle.

But if you have little else…you can single feed said ammunition…in whatever you have.

Thanks,

The old days they didn’t use modern powders and the pressures were nowhere near what you see now. This is why they invented gas checks.

Knowing how to cast is a great skill to have but I only cast for certain guns. Revolvers, muzzle loaders, shotgun slugs, and will be ordering a 220 gr rn in 310 for my 30-40 krag. I’ve also been looking into guns that started out as shooting black powder cartridges. Like the 45-70 or 44-40. Primers would be the hard part. You can use the white tip on strike anywhere matches and rebuild the used primers but it’s not reliable at all. I’ve read on making fulminated mercury but I’m not keen on possibly killing myself for primers when there’s flintlocks for sale everywhere. Or bows and arrows but that is another subject all together….

Best place to ask that question would be at the cast boolits website. There was a guy there that did all the testing for an m1a and I’m sure that someone has done an ar15

No sir I do not. I’m in Yuma AZ. Just curious what you considered training. Look into something like gunsite or the like, but closer to your area to get the training you’re looking for. Don’t pay attention to the YouTube commandos who “train” with firearms. 9 times out of 10 it’s some guy who watches and parrots other videos from Chris costa when in reality what they do will get you shot up…

I don’t keep one. I have packs from when I was still in but have no desire to leave home. Yuma will be fine. We can take care of our own here. 3 ways in and can be closed off. With the farming we have, we have food. The Colorado River supplies the water. I think we’re good here. Not worried about it but when we go to California I have a full kit depending on time of year and always in a 4wd and always take a rifle and pistols…

Thank you for for sharing. Pray tell, do run RRA stock or modded?

I had them build it when I shot for the base team. A4 upper, a2 butt stock and grip, stainless Wilson match barrel, RR 2 stage trigger. I have the lead weights for it but only use them for competition. My colt has a vltor modstock and a Leupold mk4 cqt. No batteries required…

I just keep mine basic. The more you do to it the more that can go wrong. Other than optics everything is standard.

You could look into frangible ammo or any type of hunting ammo. It’s more expensive but it will expand like you want. Personally I have alot of steel cased ammo packed away and aeven more 62 gr green tip 5.56.
