No AR yet

I got bit by a 1911 bug. I hope to begin the AR early next year.
TBH got me a progressive press for Christmas (i was there when UPS dropped it off) so I'm ready to crank out some serious semi-auto stuff.

1911

I got it! Now if this damn cold weather would go back up north where it belongs!
I've put a couple of boxes through it. Only hitch was a fail to feed (son in law was shooting semi limp wrist). I do love the way it handles.

nice

I see quite a few FTF's and FTE's with new 1911's (even without limp wristing). After a few hundred rounds it will break in nice and you shouldn't have any problems. Have you tried feeding JHP's through it yet?

UMC 250 box

is under $80.00 here at Wally World.

Federal 20 rounds 55gr 223 is under $6.00 now too...

Dunno if that is good or not, but it's handy.

No sir, he fell into that bullet... Never argue with a stupid person. They'll just drag you down to their level and beat you with experience!!
