Re: Allen Mag Shooters Group -In the interest of sharing info

I can certainly relate. I was talking to Kirby about that last week.

No worries on the pills, I decided to leave my 300Rum a 300Rum. When I smoke my 270AM barrel I will put the Edge barrel on that reciver and build a new 270AM on a Lawton.

Have a good one
Tim

Hogs seasoned in TX or free game year round?

Year round, we season them with salt, pepper, a little cayanne, sometimes wrapped in bacon and jalapeno, mixed in with various other things.

As for the numbers, well there are pleanty to go around. Shoot just give it a while and they should be up there round you. THey are moving faster than the fire ants did, and doing twice the damage. The only thing they are better at is table fare.

On the bullets, we talked it over and decided to get what we needed up front, and then only have to worry about shooting them up. Sounds like a bunch till you get through developing a load, and then doing the drops and such and so fourth. Besides the "oh hell I just got to check this out times."

You will see it don't take long to dump a hundered or so, and then your just getting to know the thing halfway decent. The hard part is keeping the damn things loaded up so you got some to shoot.

Re: Allen Mag Shooters Group -In the interest of sharing info

Ok! I just ordered 400 169.5 gr.....that should last a pretty good while!

I sent Nosler an email last friday inquiring on some 7RUM brass...still no response!

Is 869 872 the best powder? What about Big boy or Retumbo?
has anyone tried anything else?

Nyles brings up some questions I have as well related to the 270 AM on Brass and Powder, Nosler or Remington? Powder, which ones and why. Anyone using Retumbo? Just getting components now as we await the death ray machine from Kirby. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Per the designer: Ball powders only. Bridging causes pressure spikes with the stick powders. That's what Kirby says/cautions and I've learned (the hard way with brass) to follow Kirby's recommendations/instructions.
