I mean. At least it's just the laser engravings... How they managed to run it through twice is baffling though.

Hey guys https://tacticalmachining.com has 80% lowers still in stock. 👍
Message permalink: 708746807223517314
@Soulraiser i more concerned that they ran it through twice and the markings are like a centimeter offset
Message permalink: 708784556349718609
@Crye Salesman Good point
Message permalink: 708796576293716059
However, it's the engraving that's done after the milling. Everything should be to the same specs still. If the holes were cut like that as well then the concern would be there.
Message permalink: 708797209201737770
In theory with how billet lowers are made, shouldn't they be difficult to screw up? I mean they use CNC for billet right?
Message permalink: 708799075507634276
Exactly my point. Therefore, if the lower parts all fit and function properly, and if the upper attaches properly, then there's nothing wrong with it except cosmetic.
Message permalink: 708799982089666621
And in reality, it was probably sold as a blemished lower in the first place, as they do regularly for parts that had weird shit like that happen.

I can't imagine the round even coming close to the blade unless something is seriously wrong with your gun.
Message permalink: 708808220734521375
I have no idea about the legitimacy of that though. Never shot with one and I doubt with rifles these days it would have any effect
Message permalink: 708808253303291955
It has to do with the added weight at the front of the rifle that you aren't used to being there.
Message permalink: 708808376238342234
That makes a lot more sense. If you train bayonet fixed it shouldn't be an issue though.
Message permalink: 708808512108757013
But then it's an issue when you don't have it fixed. It's a lose-lose imo. But useful back when they had bolt action or semi autos that jammed every other shot in a mostly trench warfare style of fighting.

I personally use alg go juice. Won't say it's any better than other stuff but it's safe for your skin, doesn't gunk up or rot, and rifles don't seem to quit when it has this stuff in it.

With the bolt gun I'm saving up for, I'm still kinda torn. Starting to lean a little towards 308 given 7.62x51 is available anywhere in the world and it may be better for learning ballistic calculations on.

Between 7.62 x 51 and?
Message permalink: 709024191080300554
6.5 creedmoor. I understand it's a superior cartridge ballistically, but 308 and 762 seem like they'd be more available to me in a crisis
Message permalink: 709024438447898654
Practically speaking, 7.62 x 51 is a good choice.
Message permalink: 709024769000865862
The availability of optics that have built in BDCs is pretty good as well for 7.62 x 51.

The optic I'll likely be getting is a nightforce shv 4-14x50 f1 in mil dots

> Took me longer than i expected to find a mildot scope with milradian adjustments that was also under 2k @Confused Exactly. I don’t see the usefulness of mildots if you’re not adjusting in miliradians.

Algebra practice if you're into that sort of thing lol. After reading about mil and moa, I think mil would be more useful to me

Given that I'm a broke student, I've also been considering the vortex diamondback tactical 4-16x44 ffp in milrad. I know it won't be as good as the nightforce, but is it good enough? I'm trying to be economical with my money.

If the Vortex adjusts in miliradians as well as uses mil-dots, that to me is a good deal, if it’s cheaper than the NF.

Retails at 500, can get it on optics planet for 350. They're supposed to be tough as hell for the price

Or 77, anywhere around there

Most stores only carry cheap 55gr plinking ammo and green tip. I'd probably suggest buying either online or at a local business if you can. A lot of online ammo stores have free shipping on the first purchase.
