Is Grendel the best AR15 chambering that is practical?
55 replies and 7 images omitted. Click here to view.
They’re stilling selling their own “MkW-15” platform in both 6.5mm Grendel and .458 SOCOM, and they can both handle hotter loads than are safe for the standard bolts meant to fit in an AR-15
>said bolt face requires quite a bit of weakening to fit the x39 cartridge base.
That, and the larger case head are why 6.5mm Grendel is loaded to lower pressures than 5.56, as you probably know. Sure, a new platform would allow a stronger bolt and higher pressures, but it would also allow higher OAL, so why not go with something like .264 USA?
Why not go straight to the AR-10 then, with something like 6.5 or, even better, 6mm Creedmoor? I don't see the point of an inter-intermediate compromise that can't reach 3000FPS - although I admit that is a rather personal opinion.
Fair enough. I run mine with a can, so shorter is better. But both lengths will work very well for most purposes.
6mm Creedmoor AR-10 would be a great standard-issue rifle if they could they could make an EPR style cartridge with high BC and good velocity from a 14.5” or 16” or whatever barrel-length is desired. But if you know from the start that you want polymer-cased ammo and specific performance from a specific barrel-length and projectile then a lighter and shorter cartridge than 6mm Creedmoor can be adopted with performance that is close enough.

Pylon industries or the guys who turned the good SA80 prototypes into a shit production gun?

whatever you say
They started doing serial productions only 10 years ago and their first model has notorious reliability issues, absurd maintenance cost and even their newest ones have ridiculous wait time for spare and replacements parts.
TL;DWs on the vids?
Mostly its going to be stories of engineers that are generally good at mechanical work not being good with the specifics of firearm engineering.
It makes sense. There's a lot to the technicalities of guns that don't exist elsewhere. And vice-versa.
I wouldn't put HK in charge of putting a car into production. They don't understand how it works, even if all the component parts individually are basically things they're familiar with.

Its just that firearms are underrated in some aspects as to their technical difficulty.
In that they're not complex as a whole, even complex firearms are notably less so than like again a car, or for OP, a missile. But they're heavily involved in the small details.

Approximately what proportion of posters on this board are tourists nowadays? Just from posts alone, I think it's reasonable to assume that at LEAST 75% of people posting on this board are total newfags. The number of posters doubled in the past year alone, and such estimates don't account for the continual loss of oldfags. Over periodic visits over this summer, I've noticed that obvious reddit transplants accounted for at least half of the new threads, more than I've ever seen. Of course, such trends are to be expected from the summer, but board activity has been dropping over the summer. Could this simply be accelerated rates of user loss caused by some recent influx of shitty users? If so, even with the very optimistic 25% estimate at the beginning of the year, this fraction has possibly dropped to approximately 10% due to this effect.
What the fuck do I do? Where did everyone else go? This place is one of the few I had left.

I'm still here, but you're right, the demographics changed a lot. 2020 flooded us with retards, /pol/ nogunz, and reddit refugees. Now that their panic is over they've mostly fucked off because this was never a hobby to them, just a panic. Yeah, it pushed out a lot of oldfags but some of us are still here because we have nowhere else to go. I'm also posting less because some faggot from /v/ keeps getting my IP range banned for my phone so I can't post at work.
Yo, how do we actually post videos of real shootings for discussion. Multiple times now I have had my thread prunned.

Does it need to be covered by some blow hard on Youtube to not count as current events? Is there a wait time of 2-3 weeks from the shooting?

If it's because it's inter-racial violence, what the fuck do the moderators want us to do? This is America. It fucking happens. Are we only allowed to post the video if it's white-on-white crime?

> Just post it to /pol/
Really? So that's where we're pushing discussion of actual tactics and questions of US criminal law?
It's a blue board issue. Death and violence is NSFW so it has to go on red boards the same as nudity. Generally those threads go unreported because /k/ has no native janitors but someone must be reporting your threads.

Germans, I swear. Dutchman here, took several people to the range just for fun, everybody knows it despite the idea being that it has to be for sporting purposes. Hell, I brought my gf yesterday and all I got was a couple of happy faces and plenty of offers for her to shoot a Contender and several revolvers. Germans just cannot into social interactions, I guess.

Yes. Met the cool boomer at the local IPSC chapter who helped me around with shit and paperwork to get my loicenses. Been to a couple of hunting trips with the members as well, and i've gotten a couple of good catches for guns i wouldn't otherwise get for nearly as cheap.

I will never take a woman to the range though.

>it's just too long, too meandering
Agreed. The opportunity to explain the Klingon look of the original series was clever enough, if a little too overt and clumsy.
That was S4, S3 was the Xindi and Sphere Builders.
Philosophy covers the everyone is stupid but me arguments.
One the none stupid are drawn from the same pool as the stupid.
It doesn't matter how many stupid's it take to create someone who is not.
All that matters is that they can create someone who is smart.
This is a big part of the covenant and community trust and publc good.

Its the community that must be upheld as they can create those who are bright enough to understand and accept philosophy and the teachings of philosophy.

The commons, community and the laws that uphold, keep and protect this pool are the reasons that religion and its teachings where taught and practiced.
This is a time where few if any understand philosophy or its reasons that are discovered with logic and evidence.
>aside from the space station setting there really isn't a lot in common
The leader of the Cardassians was Dukat. The leader of the Minbari before the Earth-Minbari war was Dukhat.

While they went in very different directions, they did start in very similar places, development on B5 started before DS9, and JMS did try to shop his show around to the major studios (including Paramount) before DS9 started production. It is very plausible that someone at Paramount working on Star Trek decided to lift material from the B5 pitch. That doesn't make DS9 a ripoff, but you can't argue that nothing was lifted.

When Voyager was being planned they wanted a character like Nick Lacarno. Jeri Taylor said the reason they didn't was because the character was irredeemable, but there was likely another reason. If they had used Lacarno they would have had to pay Ronald Moore and Naren Shankar, the writers of that episode for every episode of Voyager that their character appeared in. That's a lot of money for 2 people not directly involved in the new series.
Cardassians violated treaty. Thats war and thats death.
Cardassians wanted to test the federation resolve on treaty enforcement.
The complete extermination of any xenos who violate treaty will send a message that any treaty entered into by the federation is dealt with seriously.
It gives value to treaty's.
Not enforceing the treaty shows weakness and that weakness will be attacked.

Don't ever show weakness to xenos.
The kingons would have glassed them without even checking if they violated treaty or not.
So would have the Dominon and every other empire in space.
All empires were watching what was happening and Maxwell know the larger game at play.

I mean, cool, but why. If it's just wanting to launch heavy pistol cartridges quickly, .450 Bushmaster did it pretty well. If you just wanter a modernized .45-70, .458 Socom and .50 Beowulf both did that pretty well too.

Does this bring something new to the table, or at least better industry wide support?

I'm convinced the author's quality went down after legal psychedelics were banned in Japan. His work has gotten more boring every year. Last time I checked his current series is about some body swap thing with a kid staring at his mom's ass all the time. Back in the day he'd be drawing shit like this.
First time I ever held a 92 I embarrassed myself by doing that. Thought "you need to pull the slide back, right?" and just pushed it in with my finger and the guts end up on the floor.
