  1. Did it tighten down, with no washers, to 20lb/ft? If the answer is no, then you need something in there to hit that torque setting. There's 540-degrees of rotation in a "proper" crush washer. Even it you hit it with nothing, you can get a full 360 with a crush washer. Plus another 1/2 rotation.

  3. Drew, you should move out to the desert here, with me... :o
  4. That is one cool setup, man. :thumb:
  5. Are you sure you wanna go down this road, brother? I can toss a couple up here, but I don't know what effect it's gonna have on you... :confused: microgunner, I'll get the FDE stuff together and get it on here. :thumb:
  6. Addicting, ain't it, brother?!!? :o Sorry 'bout that... :grin:
  7. Oh Lordy, whatever you do, don't combine the camera with this ^^^... :laugh: :o
  8. I start getting twitchy if I can't go more than a week. :o Typically, it's every week. I feel for ya, man.
  9. I've got alot of FDE that I could put up for you, MG, but it's in some different calibers. It might have you looking for other things to put together... Just sayin'... ;D

    I LOVE IT!!! :beer: :thumb:
  11. Hard to compare those two, as apples-to-apples, brother. The AAC brake is on a 20", and the Dynacomp is on a 16". If these were semiauto gas guns, it might be comparable, but on bolt guns, it's different. That 16" GSR would rattle my damn teeth on recoil, and the barrel would jump straight up 3 or 4 inches, right off the shooting block. It's short and jumpy, and bone stock, it only weighs a shade over 7lbs. It never did do much for eating the .308 Win recoil. Great shoulder pad from the factory, thankfully. :o The Dynacomp helped trememdously with it jumping up off the shooting block - and that would directly translate in firing from positions using the sling, too. It helped, alot. That 20" 700 is a decently heavy bolt gun, with a heavy barrel, etc. The Hogue stock is light, but that whole gun has some beef to it. It also has a great recoil pad, stock. It never did have a very harsh recoil - nothing like the GSR - but you couldn't keep the scope on target on the shots over 450-ish. Now, it stays close to target on the longest shots I have available, out to 575, and the brake cut the felt recoil even more. The closest I can come to a verbal explanation is: it felt like a .308 bolt gun before, just not too bad. Now, it feels more like a harsh-recoiling .223 gun. If I get the gumption to take off both setups, I'll swap them from gun to gun and try them out. :thumb: I'd really like to try both of them on my .308 semi, to see how it does. Bottom metal on the way, with a few more things - I love talking to Roger at BAD on the phone. That's never a boring conversation!!! :thumb: :beer: Thank you, Roger! 8)
  12. That stock on the short 16" .308 is the factory stock that comes on the Ruger Gunsite Scout Rifle - that is a wicked little .308, man. >:D The Rem 700 will have the bottom metal setup in it by the end of this week. :thumb:
  13. I must say, I'm impressed with the AAC Brakeout. Combination of the brake and Blackout flash hider. It did a damn fine job out there. The two long targets at 525 and 575 were a challenge before, with the winds. The recoil would cause the scope to jump off target, and I couldn't get back on target fast enough to see the impacts. Not now. :thumb: The scope still moves on those ones, but it still stays mostly in view. It's easy to get back on target and watch impacts. This device really does it's job well. Felt recoil is down, but target visibility was what I was really after. Happy with the purchase. :beer:
  14. PIcked up the AAC Brakeout today. Not a fan of the stainless steel crush washer they include now - they used to ship it with a shim set. I'd rather had the shim set. Still need to time it properly, and I'll blast it this Sunday. :thumb:
