Re: M1 Garand (camp fire)

Thanks buddy! Haha yeah, while we have trucks too, we always been Jeep people.
Yes, Jeep is on to the next generation. The JL has replaced the JK. They have made a few changes, but I don't think anything too crazy.

Re: M1 Garand (camp fire)

Yup. I save all my 5.55 brass even though I rarely load it.
I'm rigging up a little jig setup to cut a bunch of 5.56 to make 300BO. Easy peasy. I really enjoy the cartridge, and keep thinking on a 10" upper for it.

Re: M1 Garand (camp fire)

My last computer died about a year ago. Never replaced it. I use my phone now.
I still have an old ipad mini but never use it.

I've never shot any of the heavier bullets in 5.56. I don't think I've shot anything but 55gr. Ball. I don't really use it for more than just playing around.
