 The fine folks at Otis Technology have sent over a mountain of rifle maintenance tools and cleaning kits for the AR-15 and AR-10.  We’ve been tasked with giving them away.  Watch for the special posts on Facebook and Instagram to get a chance to win some of the awesome products made by Otis Technology.  We’ll give away a complete MSR Cleaning kit in either 5.56 or 7.62 in the middle of each  month up until Christmas, when we’ll give away a complete Otis Technology Elite Cleaning System to one lucky listener.  During the alternating weeks, we’ll be giving away a host of Otis tools and cleaning supplies.


Bob L:  Reed, Thanks for all you do in producing an amazing podcast (cast & crew included).  I have listened since the beginning.   I know there is an endless amount of subject matter for our black rifles, but thought I would pass this on.

 A friend of mine who is an aeronautical engineer called me one day and asked if I would research the merits of the big bore AR 15's, after all I am retired and have more time, right?   Specifically, he was interested in the 458 SOCOM vs. the 450 Bushmaster.  I personally had no interest in either until I dug in and started learning about the two.   I think the stories of their development are incredibly interesting and think that some interviews with their respective developers would make great shows.  Tim LeGendre the creator of the 450 Bushmaster (450 Professional) is actively posting on the forum under the call of "wildcatter" and I believe Tony Rumore of Tromix was involved in the Socom development, he is also on the same blog under tonyrumore.   I believe both would be willing.  Additionally, I believe the interviews would be of value just due to their historical significance.

 Some aspects; if SAAMI spec'd, parent cartridge, bullet differences, ammo availability and cost, max effective range, required components for conversion, pro and cons of straight walled case and bottled necked cases as well as recent changes to Michigan and Ohio hunting laws.

 Another interview I would love to listen to would be Bill Alexander on the development of the 6.5 Grendel and the 50 Beowulf.

 Loved the Faxon segment! Keep up the good work, thanks again.

DW Taylor:  I recently got bitten by the black rifle bug. I discovered your podcast right after you closed registration for the latest give-a-way. Missed it by THAT much… (Per Maxwell Smart. Yes, I am old)

 I appreciate the humble approach you take to your audience. We are all newbies at one time in this field. I would have left more feedback, but I can only do that on my mobile devices through my Facebook log on, and I do not have a Facebook account (don’t want one either).

 6.5 Grendel

I have not heard you speak much of this in the AR configuration. Pros, Cons, thoughts?  I am thinking about building an upper that I can use for deer this fall. I have heard this is a good round for larger game. You talk a lot about the 300 Blackout. How do they compare? Are they similar, totally different purpose & intent?

 Thanks for the weekly show. I haven’t missed one since I started. I listen on Stitcher and often download so I can listen on the plane as I fly to work.
