On another side note, I've been an Kalashnikov kinda guy for a while, but now I'd like to see what the AR platform has to offer me. What kind of decent AR could I get for about $500-750?
Any good .22LR pistols for cheap? Or should I just get a Marlin 795?
Unless your ridiculously lucky and can find a used Colt AR or a used one from a brand that [h2]isn't[/h2] the following: Bushmaster, DPMS (don't buy me stupid), Olympic Arms, Century Arms.
That's just about covers it off the top of my head. STAG's are generally the cheapest GOOD quality AR's out there. Lowest you might find one new is at least $850+
If you want something that's really serious prepare to poop some serious cabbage for it.
You done broke into the wrong house, stranger...
Oh, a robber. "Take a little snooze now punk!"
I'm not sure how dumb of a question this is, but we'll find out.
I'm looking at an H&K PTR-91F. It says it's chambered in 7.62x51mmR NATO.
Can I load 147 grain 7.62x54mm into this or is the 3mm difference going to fuck everything up?
Sincere question here so please no assholish responses.
Okay thanks. That answers it bluntly.
Why exactly not? I'm sure it has something to do with the length of the cartridge and a powder load too powerful for what the rifle is designed to handle?
So what would happen with a 3mm (or .04) difference?
Think of it this way: You wouldn't put 9x19 into a Makarov, 7.62x39 in an M1895, .45ACP in a Colt SAA, or .50BMG in a Desert Eagle. Even though all of these rounds are similar to the round that the weapon takes, you would never, ever, EVER try to use them in that weapon.
I know that I want to know exactly what would happen. Would the bullet jam in the barrel, would the cartridge explode, would the cartridge jam, etc.
I actually don't know what would happen. Most likely the round wouldn't even fit in the magazine, and if you bypass that, it probably wouldn't even fit in the chamber, and if it does then the bolt will most likely not cycle, but if somehow it does then I would assume the firing pin would either over-penetrate or light-strike, and if that doesn't happen, the bullet would be too big for the barrel.
Or the barrel could catastrophically explode, or it could jam, or it could fire but not be accurate what so ever.
Then of course you have things like .38 special and .357 magnum, where you can shoot .38 special out of a revolver designed for .357 magnum but not vice versa.
Examples of what could happen.
This video is on a .410 shotgun that defied expectations when they loaded it with 30-30, 45-70 gov, 44. magnum, and 454 casull
Wow so if the cartridge is smaller, it 'fire forms' which I assume basically means from firing it reforms the cartridge to fit the barrel/receiver of the firearm. But from what I understand a smaller round that doesn't fit the barrel has the potential to get tripped up inside the barrel due to rifling that doesn't fit and potentially tumble/break up inside the barrel, right?
What would happen if you somehow managed to shove a larger calibre bullet into a smaller calibre firearm and fire it? Would it just explode? It seems like it would.
That casing malformation is pretty incredible
That's not to say that the bullet couldn't get stuck in the barrel and cause a harmful stoppage, but as the video showed that wasn't the case. Infact the main reason the shotgun broke wasn't due to a barrel clog, but because the case produce significantly more pressure than a 454 normally would (which was incredibly high for that little .410 to handle to begin with) due to the fact that the cartridge was loaded with a hoopajoop of gun powder.
i didn't catch the at first either. here:
i did try to force a 7,62x51 casing into the m44's 7,62x54r chamber but the tapering (angling of cartridge walls) made it impossible.
Does anyone one here remember a guy who bought a 1911 and it turned out the gun was chambered in .30 Mauser?
I kinda want a 1911 chambered in 7.62x25, the only problem being I then need a 1911, and not-Chinese ones cost too much.
Don't think the 1911 would be a good platform for a such hot round as 7,62x25
old video of me testing out the bayonet on my old beater M44.
no worries, I have a far better M44 I don't treat so roughly. :D
Bunch of people around here keep looking for conversion kits for 1911s to 7.62x25, and apparently they're around in the states. People want it because of the availability of cheap surplus, apparently there's a fair demand in Canada at least for conversion kits.
Nothing wrong with a good ole 870, but isn't that a steep price for one?
