  1. Any Colt M4 (LE6940) experts here, how to validate an early serial number?

    I'm trying to do some research, and I'm not having much luck. I have a very lightly used Colt M4 Monolithic (LE6940). When I purchased it in the March of 2009, the dealer made a big deal that it was from one of the first crates of these guns shipped out of Colt, so I should be very careful to...

  8. Hornady LnL AP, improved PTX operation

    It looks like Hornady redesigned their PTX (powder through expanders) to work better with both jacketed and lead bullets. They claim the new ones are to work better with their bullet feeder (which I'm not sure why as I think the bullet feeder says not to use with lead bullets). The nice...
  9. amunition and firefighters, seems like it's not a big problem

  14. moving dead weight, light and fast or heavy and slow?

    Ok, my project is starting to come together. I need to decide, do I want to load 185 gr bullets at about 1503 FPS or 230 grain bullets at about 1336 FPS (another option could be 200 grain bullets as about 1456 FPS, but this seems like a middle ground to me). There seems to be more energy...
