That FNAR is a mean looking rifle....what are you going to put on the picatinny rail mount?I hadn't thought of that. Thanks for the info, ironrider.
As an aside, I still haven't set up the Dillon and worked on any loads. I picked up an FN FNAR on Saturday and have been pretty busy getting that set up and dialed in.
Please keep the reloading info coming!
I've got a Bushnell Elite 3-9x40 scope on the top rail mounted with Leupold QRW quick-detach rings. I put a Harris bi-pod on the six-o'clock rail with a YHM adapter. I'm still looking for a sling and maybe a laser for the nine-o'clock rail up front.That FNAR is a mean looking rifle....what are you going to put on the picatinny rail mount?
I would like to get a FN FAL if I could find one for cheaper than what they're asking for...however if may just get a DSA SA58.
HS-6 works just fine with the 9 MM but I find it dirty and it also causes a big cloud of smoke. This is very noticeable when i would shoot next to buddies that were using factory WWB ammunition.
I have switched to W231. This meters very well through my powder measures, is readily available and does not smoke too badly. Using W231 I can load about 1100+ rounds per pound of powder.
For range work and plinking the Rainier and Berry's bullets are great choices. Make sure to get these from an online supplier that gives cheap shipping. Bulk bullets are very heavy and Midway/Natchess/Cabela's type stores will ship them UPS based on weight. This adds $15-$30 to the order total. I have bought Berry's bullets from tjconevera.com and the shipping is included in his pricing.
This brings up a good point and reminds me of an observation, especially for those using Titegroup powder:No unburned powder flakes or smoke, and the cases were remarkably cool coming right out of the pistol (still very warm, but not "hot" as usual).
I think I've found my go-to load for the P99.
