Off Topic / Re: Ruger Is Looking to Hire Here in Prescott
« on: December 24, 2021, 09:41:42 AM »
The commute for me would still be 20-25 minutes on surface streets. Or less than 15 mins if I take the freeway. And traffic is not bad no matter what time of the morning.

They offer lots of perks which I am not really interested in except: “Up to 50% off MSRP on Ruger Firearms”. I could really get into that!!!  :D

No paycheck but you get to take home new guns every pay period.  Sounds like a win-win situation to me, lol.

Go for it, if you don't like it you could pull a millennial and just quit ( :wtf:)

Late yesterday morning at the rifle side some guy got yelled at 2-3 times during one cease fire and got yelled at again the very next cease fire.  I'm surprised Mitch didn't 86 him or her (or it? non-binary?  :wtf: lol, whatever).

I want to load some lighter 357 wadcutters for my 627 snubnose.  full house 357mag out of that revolver is a little uncomfortable to shoot, so I'm thinking just slightly lighter load will be perfect
If you are using double ended or button nose WCs with a solid base they can be driven to some pretty impressive velocities.  Push a hollow based WC much past 750 fps you run the risk of blowing off a skirt (that's what she said) and getting it stuck in your bore.  Not a good thing.

FWIW I like to shoot a 158 coated SWC ahead of a good charge of Unique--a bit dirty but it shoots good enough for me and any potential double charge should be easy to spot. 

Oh yeah---HEADS! O0

..?
Are they selling primers? Even in small quantities?
Nope--haven't seen any for sale since their last LARGE shipment (at least 500K LPP by my count) several months ago.

Nice Hi-Power! Are those the Pachmayer grips?

Yes, it originally came with Pachmayrs, some G-10 type grips, an extra barrel and 3 magazines.  Made in Belgium, beer-can adjustable sights.

It has the right amount of wear and tear that I like--prevents it from being a safe queen and yet it is presentable.

CCI Quiet ammo will cycle through my Ruger Mk. II Government Target Model but not a Beretta 21a nor a Kart rimfire conversion.  It is noticeably quieter than SV but not like Colibri or CB Long.

2) There are a bunch.  I recall a few where the guy put together an interesting test with animal ribs (I think it was pork) over some inner test medium, and I think with clothes.  Not saying that is the true indicator/test, but I thought it was pretty interesting.

I saw a post about using screw anchors as a DIY dummy rounds.  If anyone has or is using them, what size are you using for 22LR?  Have you use them for other calibers (also what size are you using)?
Thanks
The small yellow ones work well for .22 revolvers.  You'd have to try them out in an autoloader to see if they'll feed from a magazine (or just single load them, of course).

Check out some of Paul Harrell's youtube videos and you can decide for yourself on a shotgun. 

He has a distinguished rifleman's badge, if that means anything to you, and he doesn't seem full of himself.  :shaka:

 The HHAA has been given the potential date in October but it all depends on the Blaisdell's decision to open up (or not).
