    Very nice, I like the long rail on the 16" bbl.

    Anyone here experience much case lengthening on 223 Remington cases? I was setting up to load on friday and found a few were longer than expected. Not hugely, but enough to suspect expansion of some form.

    Cases do elongate, especially higher power rounds and with crimping. Universal length is important in crimping. Shorter or longer case will change the crimp.

    Thanks Hollis. Im thinking of doing a full length resize after a bit of trimming. Im only running factory loads, then reloading to under maximum load with 55gr psp pills.

    He219, I see what looks like a bullet button on your AR. Are you allowed to combine hicap mags with that since you have the pistol grip or does it need to be 10 rounds? I sometimes flirt with the idea of going to ca, but I think I'd have to give up most of my stuff.

    DE is actually pretty soft in .50AE, at least when compared to .500 S&W. I occasionally help on a range that has both of them. On indoor range the blast, flash and the BOOOOM are pretty impressive.

    Thanks, Hollis, Gaijin & meinteil!
    Those are actually crappy impromptu shots with my cybershot point & shoot camera in poor lighting ..

    Indeed it is. Magazines for new builds must be restricted to 10 rounds and it's common to find 10/30 or 10/20 blocked mags here.
    My AW registration from 10 years ago covers my other rifles and their respective hicap magazines prior to the ban.

    Btw, I really like the hidefinition slow-motion footage of you shooting the DE. Looks great.
    I've fired a Grizzly .45 winchester magnum years ago and it takes some getting used to ..

    He219, Magazines? I like my belt fed and Oregon laws. I can make my belts as long as I want them or can carry them. I am happy to see, that you took the proper steps earlier to insure that you could have a magazine over 10 rds. Probably a lot of people would have no problems with a 10 rd Magazine, especially with the cost of ammo today. It is nice to be able to load 40 rounds on a belt and plink away.


    I have a .50 DE, to watch someone shoot it, it looks nasty. I shoot it off hand (one hand) and it is not bad at all. Just expensive to shoot.

    Belt-fed rules are the same as hi-cap here.
    You can have unlimited belt fed if acquired before the ban in 2000, now limited to 10 round belt-fed.

    Thanks. I was wondering how California treated belt feds. I had a vision of being a law abiding Oregonian going to California and winding up in Chino.
