  1. I have 400-500 empty rounds in my locker so far.
  2. Target Sports has Hornady Superformance Match 223 Remington Ammo 73 Grain ELD Match for $0.87/rd.
  3. Figured this thread is useless without pictures. First picture is 6 shots with the reloads. Second picture was second 5, AE. First picture was my first 5 at 100 yards with AE.
  4. Finally got to try some reloads my friend gave me to try out. He gave me rounds he loads for his Ruger American Predator to see how the loads would do for my Ruger American Ranch. His Predator has a 22" barrel, 1:8 twist, chambered in .223 rem. My Ranch has a 16.12" barrel, 1:8 twist, chambered in 5.56 NATO. Basically, he wanted to see the effect of the shorter barrel on his round. Went to the range last night, brought 20 rounds of my Wolf Gold, 40 rounds of my American Eagle 62gr BT, and the 6 rounds he gave me. Some nice Sierra Matchking bullets in the reloads. Used my Wolf to warm up at 50 yards. Was shooting off a rest instead of prone, but unfortunately, couldn't find the rear rest in my car so I needed to adjust. Used the AE at 50 and 100 yards. Let my rifle cool down, then finished with the reloads. It's amazing how much of a difference it all is. I already notice a fair difference between the Wolf and AE rounds even shooting inside. But these rounds were a serious step up. The precision with these rounds was just damn good. Even my flier wasn't far off by any means. Definitely felt some more heat come off from those rounds but I'm focusing more on quality of quantity of shots. I really, really need to get into this. I'm not looking to save money (Though I was eyeing all that brass they were sweeping up at the end of the night. Might try to ask about grabbing some next time I go though I doubt I'll get a positive response.). But it's definitely the kind of thing I could learn to super enjoy. Being a chemist, that kind of precision preparing of getting the right amount of grains, perfect seating of the bullet, testing them. It sounds so fun and rewarding.
  5. FYI, if any app has malware, turning off your phone might not be enough. There's malware out there that can turn on your phone, turn on your camera, record sound through your speaker without a single visual difference.
  6. Right...Honestly, I'd say it's more likely they record everything than not. Just like all those apps we download on our phone. Apps for flashlights that need permissions to phone calls, video, photos, etc.
  7. Loved Mark Wahlberg in that. A lot of the other cast I just found annoying. Big fan of Kate Mara.
  8. Have fun everyone! Beautiful day with just enough wind to make it interesting.
  9. That's a two hour drive. Quicker to just go to PA at that point.
  10. Personally, I'd like to see some catching up as inflation is catching up with a lot of people who don't have much as is. Looks like post taxes, the bottom 90% are getting their asses kicked.
  11. Your future is capped based on what part of the economic ladder you are born into. The extreme majority of people born in poverty will end up in poverty never having a chance to move up.
  12. Let's say it is the most basic job. Well the most basic income should support a basic living.
  13. I enjoyed the Red Cross's training for CPR/AED. The trainer did a great job teaching everything. Plus if you are a business owner, you might be able to get discounts on insurance for your company if you have staff trained. I'm fighting to get first aid included for my company. It's the kind of thing where seconds can count. I was fortunate enough to take the Army's combat life saving course which I hope to God I'll never need. But some of the main points would apply to any situation: Don't remove or move any objects stuck in them. If it's bleeding, pack the wound and apply pressure. If they are in immediate danger of more damage (like car on fire, etc.), move them behind cover, then continue with treatment until help arrives. An in-person class makes a huge difference though. Actually physically practicing it is a big confidence booster seeing that you can do it. And basic first aid can make a huge difference when waiting for help to arrive. Great job taking the initiative to learn this stuff.
