Another piece.. my trigger tech diamond came today.. a really nice looking trigger.. i figured my bolt carrier group and charging handle would have been here by now but it seems to be volleying back and forth between memphis and Nashville.. grrrr... sad thing is it was in Illinois a couple days ago about a 100 miles away from me.. fed ex probably flew over my house with it on their way to Memphis.. lol

Another piece of the puzzle came today.. a American defense one piece quick detach scope mount with 20 moa built into it.. looks like its pretty well made.. first mount I've used like this..

I've got a couple of those mounts.  Rock solid and return to ZERO every time.  Great piece of equipment.

Thanks for affirming that jeff.. my first qd and didn't know what to expect when it came.. after getting it i think it will compliment the m5 well..

Put that TT Diamond in my Rock River Arms gas gun (6.5CM) last year.   Fantastic improvement and worth the $$.   Plus it is the only trigger that I know of made, for an AR-10 platform, with the 1.5 #-ish  pull.   IMO, great choice.

Gonna build some perfect ammo for this rig.. 😁

Starting with perfecta brass..lol..

Kinda bored with waiting on parts i dug out some perfecta 308 brass and thought i would turn it into 6.5 creedmoor brass.. ran it through a redding 6.5 creedmoor body die. Then trimmed it to 1.910. Then cleaned the lube off in corn cobb media.. annealed it.. then ran a 21'st century expander mandrel in it.  The necks measured .017 so i am turning the necks down to .0135 all in one pass on the 21'st century lathe.. probably should do it in two passes but its looking good with one.. just slow going.. after that i will run them through a lee collet die and they should be ready to prime.. i know creedmoor brass is easy enough to come by but i wanted some perfect brass.. lol

Grant,  you must be truly bored.  Even though you have some "perfecta" brass, seems like too much work.   I ended up loading some Dasher brass with Bart's Hammers for a local 600 yard match on Sunday......

I ordered the ultra lite jet blast brake for this the other day and it came today.. when i picked up the little box they ship them in i honestly thought they forgot to put the brake in it.. opened it up and it was in there .. it just blows me away how lite it is.. pva says its 74% lighter than their original jet blast brake and i believe it.. comes in weighing at 1.37 oz. Lol.. good looking brake..
