CoD4 isn't too intensive, they've been using the same engine since CoD2 and even then it's just upgraded Quake 3. Hell, I ran CoD4 on the lowest settings on a computer that would occasionally chug on CoD2

Has anyone any suggestions on where I can get a patch made? It seems a lot of the places online do bulk orders of patches, and I really only need one.

From a few pages ago, but if you were looking to stay somewhat local, Ben's in Amesbury MA handled very small orders of patches (read: 2 for a new uniform) from my previous employer. All custom work too. I can't tell you what they paid, but they got the work done quickly and it always looked good.

To clarify further, the standard 5.56 ball (FMJ) round is the 62gr M855...the SS109 is the NATO designation for the same round. There are other 5.56 rounds out there that the military uses, with different projectiles, but M855/SS109 is still the standard 5.56 ball ammunition. However, the Army is in the process of adopting a round it's calling M855A1, which is basically supposed to be an improved lead free round that supposedly provides a whole host of good things, like better accuracy, more reliable performance, higher velocity, and I'm sure more "stoppin' powah."

Is there a small box-fitting reloading kit that doesnt involve hitting a live primer with a little hammer? I'm gonna be reloading ammo pretty soon but I dont have room or a suitable table for one of the big presses. I'm also not a fan of hitting stuff that explodes when hit with a hammer.

As uncle caveman mentioned, the lee hand press is pretty compact. If you really want to use a lee loader but without hammering the primer in, you could buy a hand priming tool like the lee auto prime.

It probably could, you'd also probably have to be careful about the orientation of the press lest some primers get flipped around or dropped. I'd just use the regular Auto Prime and use the hand press for your other operations.

I used the hand press for my first several hundred rifle rounds and it wasn't too bad. Definitely a good alternative for low-volume reloading when you want to be able to stash your whole reloading setup in a shoe box.

It appears that it should. I picked up the hand press kit for my beginning reloading and it comes with a press top priming system, but does not have the primer tray. You have to put the primer in manually.

I'm cross dominant as well. I shoot pistols right handed and longarms left handed. I found that when I was trying to shoot left handed pistol, I would pick the gun up with my right hand and then awkwardly hand it to my right hand. Best to just shoot it right handed and hold it to the left.

It's p. easy to compensate with pistols, I don't have a problem with that. However it is really awkward to tilt my head all the way right for scoped rifles.

Why would you do that? Scoped rifles are probably the most cross-dominant-friendly firearms. Put a piece of scotch tape over the left lens of your shooting glasses if you're worried about fatigue and keeping both eyes open. The only aspect of shooting that gave me trouble was wingshooting, but that was fixed with lots of practice.

I am cross dominate(lefty, right eyed). I use rifles right handed and pistols left handed. With pistols I found just using my left eye is the best solution. I tried leaning over to use my right eye, but that sucked, and I tried just shooting right handed, but it felt to foreign.

Basically I am the highest of speed, lowest of drag operator because my transition to my secondary uses a whole different sighting system. :smug:

That was me. It was a "Pardner pump" 870 clone, I think from NEF? I don't remember exactly the model, it was my friends gun. Get the genuine article instead.

Gewehr 43,
What did you end up using for carbon removal for your booster cone or flash hider or whatever MG part you had that was coated? Purple Power? If so, did it work?

I had a great experience with Simple Green a few years ago and now it's just not doing the trick. I don't know if the carbon I'm stripping is affecting it's effectiveness and I need to change it out or if the previous success was a fluke.

Related: I'm thinking hard about a commercial ultrasonic cleaning tank. A big one that I can put bolts and subgun barrels in etc. Anyone have experience with one? They're pricey but the idea of just stripping a gun down, dropping it in and coming back a few hours later to a completely clean gun or part without chemicals and manual scrubbing is very appealing.

I noticed that Midway or Cabelas had an ultrasonic cleaning tank for like $90 the other day. It was on the smaller side though as it was meant for cleaning brass. It supposedly held 200 .223 cases though.

I used purple power and it didn't so much as dent the hardened, baked-on carbon you're talking about. I have no idea what will remove it, but if you find something let me know, eh? What purple power did do was strip the bake-on finish off the bolt carrier and bolt of my brand new Arsenal SGL31. :( Lesson learned, kids, don't soak your Saiga parts in purple power.

drat, sorry to hear that.

What I'm reading is the best thing for serious carbon build up is a bead blast doh. Ultrasonics do seem to work in some applications but are really bad for aluminum.

Here's a thread I came across which just happened to about a booster (1919).
http://www.subguns.com/boards/mgmsgarchive.cgi?read=568168

One guy mentions greasing them before they get fouled. Makes me wonder if my ported barrel had something on it which made the last cleaning easy, then I stripped it bare, reassembled leading to a much tougher situation now. I think I'm just going to use the scrape method and not let it get so bad next time.
