Jeff  - Hey guys! Looking to get a BCG for my build and was thinking of going melonite. Could you recommend what you would consider is the best on the market? Cost is not a factor.

Seth - Thanks guys. First time using the Otis cleaning tools. Won the bone tool last year. Love it. Looking forward to another great year of content. Keep up the good work guys.

Tyler - Looking at building an AR for my older brother, he wants something other than 5.56 but still something similar and easy to find. Thinking a 7.62x39 due to cheap ammo and it's an all around decent cartridge. Besides prebuilt ones that are ridiculously expensive, do you have any build suggestions? I'm hoping to stay with a plane Jane lower that can take any normal AR upper so if I wanna get him a present in the future I can build him an upper. Anyways like I said, I've heard there's some reliability issues in feeding and seen some forums where the guys all ground down their feed ramps and bored out a slightly larger gas port and they worked fine.  Any advice helps

Tyler Dice PSA barrels are made by FN. But are PSA barrels made to PSA spec, or FN spec?

Trump Lower for Inauguration

Main Topic:  

  1. What does milled, stamped, billet, forged etc mean for receivers- and does it really matter?

  2. What parts are “crucial” to spend to spend money on vs being cool-guy gear? IE Spend on trigger? Hand guard ok to skimp on? Does a quality buffer assembly matter or are they all the same?

  3. How does gas system length affect your rifle? How will I know what I should get?

Feedback:

Jeff - You guys might have already had an episode on this but can you have on on hand guards. The current trends and some of the exceptional companies that are out there for each price point.

Tim - Get the guys from Joe Bob Outfitters back on to talk about the Savage Arms MSR15/10! They're the only place I've seen with either one for sale. Would love to hear some insight from them on the rifle, as well as anybody from Savage willing to come on and talk about it.

Feedback:

Casey - Adams Arms has a barrel that they list is 223/5.56 it is 14.5 inch is it able to shoot both rounds? How do I know which caliber this is chambered for.

TheGunnyRet - Gentlemen, I work in Saudi Arabia and your PODCAST keeps my sanity and helps me spend my hard earned money… Recently listening to the Suppressor broadcast, you have now convinced me to go forward with a purchase and also build a SBR or two to attach it to...The Show is Great with all of it information twists....being a retired Marine GySgt I appreciated Reed's passion for Iron Sights but also JD's for spending money on parts
I would like to know more about "The Other Calibers build" in the AR Platform...6.5 Grendel, 6.5 Creedmoore, 300 WM, 260 Rem, 270 Rem, 458 SOCOM, 375 SOCOM, 5.7, etc...
Also on the Home protection Podcast with the Red Dot at close Range if you move the Dot up your round moves down...if you move the Dot Down the Round Moves up...note this is in reference to CLOSE RANGE within that 15 ft or 5m range. Just like on the old "Iron" Front Sight Post on an AR "Screw it Down" Round goes up....it's all about the angles… Keep up the good work Great Show...OORAH!! Marine Corps...

Jeff - Hey guys, New to the podcast and trying to listen sequentially. I cannot find episode 1-10 on stitcher and it seems the iTunes thing is the same way. I enjoy the podcast, but as a noob who hasn't built a rifle yet, I'm hungry for the basics.. where in the hell are episodes 1-10 hiding? Under Reed's hello Kitty coffee mug? Go easy on me, I'm a recent convert from the good old dirty dirty Soviet bloc style rifles.
Reed, I heard someone's feedback that you are boring and I just wanted to say that your voice is impossibly smooth... In fact I think your new name should be Barret Magpulo (get it snowflake? Barry Manilow) five stars when I figure out howto get iTunes working.

Reed (yes, there are two of us) - Hey guys, Just found out about your podcast a few weeks ago and I've been listening to a lot of your old episodes while building my first AR-15.  The info you guys have provided has been really useful and interesting.
I recently came across an accessory I'd never seen or heard of before so32. I wanted to get your opinion on it.  Do any of you use a dehumidifier rod (or any other dehumidifier device) for your gun safe?  It had never occurred to me that something like this might be a good idea.  It's probably not a big deal for people who live out west, but in the southeast and where I live in eastern PA, the summers can get unbearably humid and I had never considered how that might affect my weapon in storage.  Do you guys think these would be a worthwhile purchase or is humidity not really a huge risk to you weapons if you're storing them indoors?
Thanks and keep up the good work,
P.S. As someone who served 4 years active duty as an infantryman with the 101st Airborne Division, I completely side with Reed when it comes to the topic of back up iron sights.  With my build, the BUIS were the first accessory I added before even considering what kind of glass I want to get.  In my opinion they are an absolute necessity.  Anyone who only uses optics on their rifle is setting themselves up for failure.

Guy - it seems like Aero does not have the 308 actively on their web site. Have you noticed that there are some disappointed comments on facebook about the company.  Thanks

Reed’s Reaction

Marines ditch iron sights, consider new marksmanship training tables

Giveaway: New Frontier Armory 9mm Carbine

Main Topic: 6.5 Grendel

History

  • The 6.5 projectile has a long history in Europe
  • Common examples include 6.5x52mm Carcano, 6.5x54mm Mannlicher-Schoenauer, 6.5-284 Norma, and 6.5x57mm Mauser
  • Developed by Bill Alexander, Arne Brennan, and Janne Pohjoispää
  • The cartridge’s development begins with the Soviet 7.62x39
  • The cartridge was next modified for european competition by necking down the cartridge to the 220 Russian
  • The next evolution saw the shoulder of the case blown out to create the 22 PPC and the 6mm PPC
  • The designers started with the 6mm PPC and moved into 6.5mm projectiles
  • The final changes included expanding internal capacity by shifting the shoulder forward and the wall thickness in the neck and shoulder was increased
  • First unveiled in May of 2003, it was introduced in January 2004 at the SHOT Show

Commercially available AR’s Chambered for 6.5 Grendel

  • Alexander Arms
  • CORE Rifle Systems

Building your own 6.5 Grendel AR

  • Requires a nonstandard bolt and barrel
  • 26 rnd capacity in standard 30 round magazines
  • You are required to compromise on the matter of barrel length. Your rifle needs a heavier bullet in order to shorten the barrel, but due to the platform’s dimensions, you are limited to lighter bullets.
  • Barrels - Brownells, Shilen, AR-Stoner
  • JP Rifle bolt.

Ammunition: Manufactured and Reloaded

  • Alexander Arms trademarked the 6.5 Grendel.  It wasn’t until they released the trademark that the cartridge was allowed to become SAAMI standardized.
  • Before AA released the trademark, other companies chambered the round and re-labeled their chambers (i.e. the 264 LBC and 6.5 BPC).
  • Prvi Partizan, Wolf and Hornady produce 6.5 mm Grendel factory ammunition
  • 6.5mm bullets can generally range from 90-160 grains, the Grendel seems to stretch no further than 144 grain projectiles
  • Reloading Dies:  Redding, Lee, Hornady, Forster
  • Brass: Norma, Lapua, Hornady

Why do I want the 6.5 Grendel?

  • With its higher BC, it is still supersonic at 1200 yards
  • Superior external ballistics compared to the 7.62 NATO
  • Reliability in the platform
  • Superior ext’l and terminal ballistics compared to the state of the art
  • Pinnacle chambering for the platform
  • Perfect match as opposed to series of compromises
  • Flat shooting round
  • Half the felt recoil of a 7.62 Nato M80 ball
  • Very active online community - http://www.65grendel.com/forum/

Feedback:

John Marston:  Good afternoon AR15 Podcast. Long time listener, very infrequent poster. Just a small correction and the info posted on episode 161. In regards to the assault weapons ban one of the hosts listed Hawaii as one of those states. I live here and the AR15, SCAR, or AK47 are not banned. We can even own standard capacity magazines. However, we must register all our firearms, so not so free. Keep up the good work.

Tim:  Hello, Love the podcast! I've been an avid shooter since I could safely handle a rifle and a collector since I started working. My passion has always been military bolt guns and competing with them in "service rifle" type matches. I'm a machinist by trade and have been at it since I was a 17 year old apprentice (I'll be 48 in March).
I presently run the machine shop for an optical instrument company. Several companies you've interviewed are customers of ours.  I recently completed my first AR build and I'm kicking myself for not doing it sooner.  I'm a convert to the black rifle now, and have several other rifles in various stages of completion.
Now onto the clamp on gas blocks. I think you are selling that method a bit short, in fact it's a much better way of securing them than a dimpled set screw.  Think of how the fork tubes are secured to the front of a motorcycle, particularly a high flying motocross bike.  They're clamped. When properly machined the surface contact of a clamp on gas block is far superior than the set screw method. The set screw pushes on just two points, the set screw itself and the opposite side of the barrel.
Technically, the area of surface contact could be as little as 3-4 percent with set screws and as much as 95 percent with a clamp on block. For longer ranges those two pressure points would tend to mess with the mystical "barrel harmonics" much more than a block squeezing equally almost all the way around the barrel.
I know optics have been know to slip in a set of rings, but properly lapped and torqued scope rings are the strongest point in that situation, where as any "slippage" should be coming from where the rings contact the rail. Also. securing a clamp on gas block over a 3/4" barrel with a side wall thickness of over 1/4" lends itself to much greater torque than the thin walled aluminum tube of scope.
I know opinions are like "backsides". Everyone has one and they all stink :-)
But I'm taking 30 years of machining/engineering knowledge and putting it out there for anyone who may listen.
Thanks again guys, I love this podcast and have learned a lot from you all.

Tom G: Damn you guys are great enablers. I broke down and bought LWRC compact stock system for my SBR.  I will post updated pics when I have a chance. Thomas Gonzalez

Zane:  Gentlemen, Great show. One thing that I think worth bringing up is the purpose of the rifle can greatly change where to save money. I think a home defence gun, cops duty gun, a long range toy and a plinking toy should absolutely not save money in the same places. For example my HD gun has high quality buis and red dot. My hog/plinking gun doesn't even have buis and If the cheap optic goes down, oh well pack it up and head home. Keep up the good work.  Just a thought.

Nick: Hello gentlemen, I would like to extend a huge thank you for the amazing content you guys provide. Like many I started by buying off the shelf but as my black rifle disease continued to spread I began building my own. With help from many past episodes I've become more familiar with the platform. As I start my next build I would appreciate if you go in depth in the ar pistol world while maintaining a budget. Keep up the great work.

Charles:  Great podcast guys. I started listening back in Dec. And haven't stopped. In podcast 160 you mentioned iTunes problems. About three weeks ago the podcast stopped downloading on my Android player. Just figured you all took some time off. Yesterday I found a new link for your podcast in player FM. Maybe it's not just an apple issue. Keep the informative podcast and thanks!

Joseph T:  I have recently built a 6.5 grendel after previously building a .223 and a 6.8. I am a frequent deer, hog and exotic hunter here in TX and wanted to build the best all around hunting MSR I could without jumping up to .308. I had taken deer and hogs with both the .223 and 6.8 but wanted the range and knockdown power of the 6.5. My suggestion is in regards to a show about tuning with muzzle breaks, buffer springs and buffers to achieve the lowest recoil/ best action/ejection possible when stepping up to rounds such as the 6.5. I recently learned that there is a whole new world regarding these items that I had never even thought about.
Recently got the bug for black rifles again after a short hiatus. I have
been listening for about a year and love the show.

Feedback:

Travis Wilde

A. Nothing with the elections coming. Nothing drums up political activism by our side like threatening gun rights and the anti-gunners know it.
B. Depends on election results. Democrats will continue their attacks on gun rights if they remain.
C. Harder to say. There is a lot of people coming on to our side and they feel like us. At the same time the anti-gunners efforts are only getting stronger and more organized. Yall think we will see another attempt at "assault weapons" ban in that time? I think it won't happen.

Sean Snyder

A. I need to aquire one before this time frame.
.
B. I should have at least 3 AR style rifles by then

C. Better buy another safe. ...

Nick Foglio

A = complete my pistol build under budget.
B= ted cruz
C= enjoy my black rifle addiction or participate in next American Revolution.....

Jason Fullmer

A. Buy 2 more lowers and form 1 them before July (ATF 41F changes).
B. Buy any hi-cap mags I want and stock up on 5.56/.223 before November (predicting a rush and panic buying).
C. If everything goes to hell politically, move to Texas because they'll probably secede by then.
