Longhair Acquired a few more since the last post.


Also went out to New Mexico in September to the NRA Whittington Center to shoot long range. Had a riot! Shot out to 1123yds.





Rifle is a Howa APC 6.5Creedmoor (suppressed).

Longhair I've both bought and assembled several more since my last post in this thread, but here's my latest completed project.

So fine that the Peoples Republik of Kalifornia would put you away in "Q" forever for owning it. I cannot imagine any shooter in this state having guns with a paper trail. Michiganders are a lot safer due to clear-thinking voters.

The weather's good in SoCal, tho (most of the time--not lately) and that's about the end of the attraction.

Happy shooting. Maybe you'll comment on results?

PEZ Just stuck those base plates on my mags- not sure if I like them. Moved the rail with the sling attachment towards the rear, seems to function better for me, even though I really never have it on there when shooting, lol. For some reason I have always been goofy for slings. The dot works lots better for me forward like that- not sure why I had it back there. I wish these rifles weren't so expensive to shoot (I have little time to get into reloading).

Longhair What did you do besides moving the optic, removing the side rail, and adding a BAD lever?

PEZ Rearranged some things on my AR and added a couple of pieces.

Longhair They're being used for home defense as well as hunting. The big thing with subsonics is the ability to suppress 'em. If you have your NFA paperwork you can buy uppers already fitted with a suppressor.

This is just an example. Product Details: 10.5" 300 Blackout w/ 10" Tac Quad + Pinned Black Widow Monocore Suppressed upper

PEZ Thanks. What's the advantage of the subsonic heavy loads? Quieter for home defense/indoor applications? The ballistics seem like a .45ACP from a pistol- but that would make it fun to shoot, I suppose.

Yes Sir!
On the early ones they used mid-length systems, and had issues with them not cycling reliably with subsonic ammo. The answer seems to be going to the pistol length.
Now if it's never going to be fed any subsonics, then the mid-length is the way to go. And if you want to shoot bigger slugs at the higher end of their velocity capability (higher pressures), then all you do is get a heavier buffer or stiffer buffer spring to swap out when you shoot them in a gun with the pistol length system. Light to mid-weight and/or mid-velocity rounds have no problems in the shorter system.

PEZ Well, not so much for me in that first build. I really wanted it to reliably go bang, be pretty accurate, and fun to run at the range. Yay, it's all those things, and I'm super pleased with it!

jscottj 2nd thought, I was wondering if light-weight was significant quality in custom rifle builds, like it can be in moto builds.

If you decide on .300AAC Dave, use a pistol length gas system. They cycle more reliably with sub-sonic ammo than the mid-length system.

I'm anticipating the passage of the HPA (hearing protection act) that will remove suppressors from the NFA list, and my next build will reflect that.
