R51 General Discussion / Carry ammo
« Last post by gtarp on January 18, 2020, 09:26:00 AM »
Thought I would mention a "new to me" ammo that I tried today.  It is made by a company called Atomic Ammunition.  It is a +P 124 gr. Hollow Point.  I found it at Cheaper Than Dirt.  Fired 100 rounds today.  No problems except occasionally the last round in magazine would not load.
I was shooting at 20 yards, at my swinging steel disc.  This ammo was hitting considerably harder than anything else I have ever used.  I normally carry Hornady Critical Duty 135 gr. +P+.  The Atomic would almost make the disc swing back over the rod it is suspended from.  cheaperthandirt.com lists the energy at 465 ft/lbs. and velocity at 1300 fps.  I did not chronograph any rounds today so I do not know how fast it is really going out of my R51 but, I am absolutely impressed with the energy with which it hits the steel.  I would love to see some reviews from others on this round.  My only real concern at this point would be possible over penetration.  Will definitely be doing some more work with this ammo to see if I want it to be my new "carry ammo".
Has anyone experimented with Atomic Ammunition?  What do you use for your "carry ammo"?

R51 General Discussion / Re: CRIMSON TRACE LASERGUARD REMINGTON R-51 49.95 or 29.99?

Anybody that bought one of these CT's from CDNN getting bombarded by emails from them? I think I get more than ones from Buds or RK. Looks like they really got some stuff and must be a pretty good sized outfit, prices seem good & I got one this morning that they still have the Lazer for 29.95 in todays add.
.  I have had good luck with them over the years.  Cheaper than Dirt is another good one.

R51 General Discussion / racking a full mag
« Last post by krackjack on January 17, 2020, 05:42:46 AM »
I initially stumbled on to this forum looking for a solution to the racking issue of a full mag with the slide closed.

Being a newbie, I acquiesced to the general conclusion that it "shouldn't" be done. Sort of related is the 7 + 1 full load, racking 7, ejecting the mag and loading the extra and snapping it back in.

Doing that,- seemed- on my last few tries, did lock up the firing on #2/8.

Not to beat a dead horse, but I've been having success, with a little elbow grease, to rack a full mag from the closed slide position, both mags- out of the box- without modifying their springs... (gen 2)

I'll have more to say when I can get out a test fire with them loaded that way. I won't try 8 again, simply too unreliable.

The only ammo I've tried so far is the Remington 115/brass. Works good.8)

Just found out this week too,- that Walmart stopped carrying 9mm ammo (NM only), and other local sporting goods stores can't seem to keep it stocked,- they've jacked their prices up on it too, so... if you're planning on doing any test shooting in NM, bring plenty of ammo with you, don't try to buy it here

- back to the Great Sovereign State of Texas tomorrow

Welcome to the forum!  Iím also a lifelong Texan. I picked up reloading a few years ago and find it to be a very satisfying hobby.
