Will it be a waste of time this weekend to try and sight a scope on a Remington 742 (.308 Win) at 100 yards with Silver Bear?

(My dad bought the ammo, not me.)

At the very least, your elevation will probably be off from whatever ammo you finally end up using. You may also have difficulties getting the scope zeroed in as tightly as possible if your groups are over-large. If your scope has not yet been sighted in at all, though, using Silver Bear will reduce the amount of time and ammo the next trip takes.

Am I the only one who doesn't like boresnakes? I have a couple that I use with .22s, but I always supplement them with a Patchworm or the usual rod and brush. They seem ideal for .22s where you can't clean from the breech, but shoot them often enough that getting the bore perfectly clean is wasted effort. They're sucky for applying solvent or oil, and if you run it through enough that the brushes can have some effect, you're redepositing fouling on the metal. I'm considering ditching mine for an Otis pull-through .22 kit.

My guess is that you have your finger too far into the trigger guard. Make sure you pull the trigger with the last section in your finger. If you already are, try sliding your finger out just a little.

For years I would always shoot left, and finally figured out that I was pulling the trigger with the very very tip of my finger. I slid it in just a little and it brought the shots back to the center.

As a general principle, pull with the part of your finger that permits your trigger finger to move directly backward without any tendency to arc to the left or right.

MSDS sheets are normally associated with hazardous chemicals whose use constitutes an occupational hazard, so household cleaners which are considered safe to sell to everyone without an MSDS sheets seem a silly thing to require such documentation for.

So I just had a misfeed with my beloved 9mm P239 in the middle of a magazine. This is about round 2000 on this gun and I've replaced nothing on it since purchase.

The round "noseupped" into the top of the breech and the slide pinned it there. The cartridge didn't clear the mag's feed lips.

What could have caused this? I'm guessing the probable cause for this kind of malfunction is limpwristing.

I suspect it might be the opposite. Limpwristing robs a slide of its momentum but what happened here sounds like the round was jarred forward by the slide slapping the frame so that it ended up either escaping the mag lips and tilting up under follower pressure or sitting at too high an angle so that it was able to hit the top of the chamber. I'm assuming that's what you're talking about when you say that it "noseupped into the top of the breech."

I'm gonna predict that this happened near or at the end of a magazine, and that the previous round was one of the +P+ rounds. If that's the case, your magazine springs might be getting weak.


Bobcats posted:

I'm going to go against the advice of the hardcore "defense enthusiasts" and not junk the gun because of one malfunction.

As the saying goes, if your gun hasn't jammed on you, you're not shooting it enough.


Bobcats posted:

I'm no engineer but does higher pressure ammo result in less load time as it gives more oomph to the slide?

It might. The pressure itself is irrelevant: The gun is locked up while the barrel is under pressure or you'd know it, but the overall momentum transmitted to the slide may be greater. The slide probably picks up more momentum, which could cause a sharper frame slap at the end of its travel. I've got no clue whether the slide actually bounces off the frame enough to make a difference.

My theory is that your mag springs are getting weak, and maybe your recoil spring, too. This let one round slip forward in the magazine and escape the feed lips enough to tilt at too high an angle when feeding, forcing premature cam-up of the barrel and disrupting the feed.

I see Costa and Trav running drills where they take a few shots and put their AR on safe. Im just curious about how they are getting it on safe?

It sounds incredibly stupid, but let me explain. Whenever Ive handled an AR rifle, I always have to adjust my grip to put the weapon back on safe. They just seem to flip it with the greatest of ease. Even with an extended safety switch, I imagine I would have to readjust my man-claws to flip it back on safe. Is there some kind of technique to it that I havent heard of?

It's tricky to do without shifting your grip, the OBJECTIVELY SUPERIOR AR ERGONOMICS notwithstanding. I noticed Costa and Haley kind of contorting their grips to snap the safeties back on in the videos.

I prefer the service sling style, personally. The finer degree of tension control seems to compensate for any loss in consistency.

It should be noted that any sling that attaches directly to the barrel has an upper limite on the tightness with which one can sling up before it starts affecting POI.

In blowback the pressure of the gas pushes forward on the bullet and backward on the slide. The bullet moves forward, the slide moves backward. It's very simple but but you need relatively heavy springs and slides to deal with the pressure.

One fun fact I read was that to make a straight blowback action capable of shooting .30-06, you'd need a blowback slide or block that weighed 24 pounds.

Let me know how you like it so I don't have to find out myself!

I own a Stoegar 12-gauge O/U that I use to break clays into smaller pieces or clays or (as is more often the case) send a blast of #7 shot into thin air slightly to the left or right of a clay. It's a great gun, points well, and the selective ejectors are very handy. My dad used to bring along his 870 when shooting clays, but now just uses my O/U. It should be noted that if you use a Mossberg, the tang safety on the Stoegar will reinforce good habits.

The downside to the gun is that the fit and finish isn't that great. The seam between the buttstock and the buttpad isn't perfect and the polish level on the finish is slightly inconsistent depending on location. The checkering on some examples is of the cheap, shallow variety. The shotgun is mechanically fine, but you may be disappointed if you like your over/unders to look like they cost more than the car you used to drive to the range.

Would you mind giving us a general rundown of the procedure you use and the amount of time involved? It could be useful to a lot of us who figure that boresnakes are "good enough" for the task at hand.

I'm one of those people who typically feel that "cleaning" is something I need to do just enough to have my firearms continue to function. For better or for worse, until my .357s develop rings from shooting .38s that make chambering the magnum rounds more difficult, or until I can feel the slides of my autoloaders getting a little sluggish, I typically don't clean my guns.

I'm a clean freak, and consequently it takes me quite some time to clean my guns. My preferred method is to use either M-Pro 7 Bore-Tech Eliminator according to their instructions. (This usually involves swabbing with a wet patch several times, scrubbing with a wet brush, swabbing with a wet patch again, letting it sit for several minutes, then following with dry swabs until they're clean.) The Bore-Tech is a good cleaner and also does well at incrementally removing copper fouling; however, M-Pro 7 is better at breaking down fouling; I use it for cleaning areas that require a solvent to remove carbon, but don't accumulate copper fouling. (e.g. gas pistons, breech faces, AR bolt carriers). Every so often I pull out all the copper fouling with an application of KG-12, preceding it with a standard M-Pro 7 cleaning to permit concentrating on the copper.

For rifles, I use only a patch puller and a brush because all the jags I've tried are just too tight. Jags work great for handgun bores, though.

When cleaning up minor fouling that doesn't require solvent, I use a rag soaked with oil, wrapped around one of those toothbrush-looking nylon cleaning brushes to reach crevices. This is followed by a dry rag to remove any remaining oil or dirt.

I'm not even going to go into my tweezers, toothpicks, and q-tips.


Gtab posted:

Wouldn't that just be incorrect? Isn't an oxymoron a pair of words which are directly contradictory or incongruous to one another? Jumbo shrimp, etc?

edit: for real and cannot stress this enough: I'm not trying to be a prick I'm just a nerd

You can also have oxymorons based on the meaning of words. The interpretation I'm using is that you can't get a barrel completely clean with a boresnake, so cleaning a barrel with a boresnake is impossible. If you're thinking of the act of cleaning, then the oxymoron doesn't appear.

On the subject of WWII-era studies, does anyone know the name of the study that launched Project Salvo? I'm referring to the one that examined thousands of after-action reports from WWII and concluded that the side that fired the most bullets won, so therefore the best weapon would be one that fired a lot of bullets. This always seemed laughably facile, and I assume that there was some level of statistical discernment applied to the data. But I can't remember what what the study was called, which would be a prerequisite for further research.

This, plus more syllables = more THE TACTICAL. "Making movement" has four syllables, but "moving" only has two. "Weapon system," at four syllables, has four times the THE TACTICALITY of "gun." "Engage" has only twice the syllables of "shoot," but it does tacitly acknowledge THE TACTICAL's view of actually hitting the target as an optional bonus.

Note that more syllables is not the only metric of THE TACTICALity. Often, THE TACTICAL terminology will prefer a word or phrase that is more concise; e.g. "urban prone" instead of "rollover prone." Where THE TACTICAL is concerned, it's alright to sacrifice precious syllables if the choice reduces the amount of information that is conveyed per syllable. Current Tier One operators in the sandbox are said to be able to lecture forcefully for five minutes without communicating any information at all, a skill that gives a crucial edge to the modern warfighter in dynamic CQB engagement situational scenarios.
