    Any updates one this? I'm curious to know how this was resolved and what the gas port and piston looked like.

    I never would have guessed a DE could function normally with a captive piston. I suppose the majority of the impulse that sends the slide rearward happens during the first few mm of piston travel,...
  3. 50AE brass ejection with std 6" barrel and 6" barrel with IMB

    Is it just me or has anyone else noticed the 50AE with the a standard barrel tends to fling spent brass at your face? I've got a standard barrel and one with the integral muzzle brake and I don't...

    At indoor ranges I generally get the lane furthest to the right so the brass will eject toward the wall and stay relatively close. Outdoors is tricky, large drop cloth but maybe not plastic as the...

    We had an unusually warm (and windy) weekend so I got to the range with my Labradar chronograph to compare a standard 6" barrel (BAR506SR) and the IMB barrel that my gun came with. The new barrel...

    Good info as always MrBlackCat, thanks. I finally got around to ordering a barrel (BAR506SR) and I'll report back when I eventually make it to the range and get some chrono data, probably sometime...

    I'm not sure why the lighter charges are throwing material back at you, but lower pressure / unburnt powder sounds possible. It might be little flecks of copper plating that didn't stay attached to...

    Short answer:
    Yes, same OAL for both.

    Longer Answer:
    My Lyman reloading manual shows loads for Hornady XTP HP 300 gr. at 1.580" OAL and Speer HP 325 gr. at 1.575". Not sure why the 325 is shown...

    I went to the range again to try the chrono on a cloudy day and I'm more confused than ever. The Hornady XTP 300 gr. was very consistent but averaged 200 fps lower than the advertised velocity. The...

    Hey guys,

    I made it out to the range but had a little trouble getting consistent readings from my 'ProChrono Digital' chronograph. After reading through the instructions again I'm thinking it was...

    Very interesting, especially the part where you mention ammo with a lower muzzle velocity can function better than higher velocity ammo. I don't recall the exact wording but the comments in the...

    Any 50 AE reloaders on the forum?

    For powder I've got Hodgdon H-110 and IMR 4227, bullets are Speer 300 and 325 gr. I'd be interested in hearing about experiences with any of these products, or any 50 AE reloads really. I'm hoping...

    Factory stainless steel finish

    Does anyone know how MRI puts the final finish on the stainless steel models? Is it an ultra fine belt sander or polishing wheel with coarse grit? My DE50SRMB has a minor scuff that I'd like to fix...
