The new ruger PCs are great in the way you can change the magwell to accept glock mags. I won't get one unless they make it non take down. The older PCs are great, but they only take ruger mags.


The AR lower needs a different weight buffer to shoot pistol ammo, and I assume a different weight buffer spring. All else remains the same. But those parts are cheap, when in stock. Years ago I found a guy that was making AR lowers with special mag wells that took m3 grease gun mags. I should've bought multiple.


In modern times, the M3 grease gun has been referred to as the poor mans class III gun. Hella fun though.

Well it's been a while so...


another day in the saga "As Rich's Reloading World Turns"...


forgot to take pics, but made some 5.56 ammo yesterday and last weekend.  (Finally got the Hornady #16 shell plate couple weeks ago).  I am now 100% complete on everything I need to load all the calibers I "currently" own.


Tested two loads with two different powders  (IMR-4064, H4198).  Didn't see a difference in performance, but just plinking and no accuracy test, and no chrono.
Ran my hopper dry of powder without noticing  ::) and had to go back and check every one of the last 100 rounds.  Turns out only about 12 were empty.  I am used to loading 9mm so 5 grains goes a lot farther than 22g at a time.  I actually went back and weighed every single round and surprisingly all were within a couple grains (except those missing the powder)  I am using once-fired, mixed head stamp brass so not all the brass weighs exactly the same, but close.  (I did measure and trim these prior to loading)


Still haven't blown anything up so....so far so good  :)


3342 bullets rounds made thus far and counting... ;D (fookin redneck)
