    5.56x45mm upper test fired. Case ejects, bolt returns to battery. No zip ties. Video taken,
    will get around to posting after I return from my honeymoon - slightly occupied @ the moment.

    What do you think of the Tokarev pistol?

    Getting back to topic.. what is the closest way to get to 30-30 performance without going to
    AR10 size receivers? I see there's the .308-1.5" Barnes (.308 casing reduced to 1.5" case
    length) but that'...

    .300" OSSM might get you there, but good luck getting parts for it @ the moment.I stand
    corrected: smokes it's fast - well past .30"-30: 300 ossm is essentially a 25 wssm necked up

    did you, or did you not use zip ties?Haven't used 'em yet. The .22" upper works fine as a
    self-ejecting single shot w/o em.Going to test the .223" upper this weekend, so we'll see if
    it'll fly w/o e...

    You are wrong again. The 300 BLK operates at a maximum pressure of 55,000. You can not bump the
    pressure up considerably, unless maybe you want a bolt in your eye. You need to quit spouting
    false info...

    helpful answer, which might indicate the snark you perceive is deserved.The long answer implied

    He used H332 powder and the 120 grain NBT. The barrel came from Brownells and came with a
    headspace bolt. Here are the results. He used a barrel mounted chronograph and groups were 5
    shots at 100 yar...
