    Mobile Bullet Casting Toolbox

    In this video Eric goes over his mobile toolbox setup that he organized with all the essentials needed for bullet casting all in one place. Being able to pull your casting table outside and work is much better than working inside with ventilation concerns. This type of setup could be used for a stock making area or a general gun care/minor gunsmithing arrangement as well. Hopefully this video gave you some ideas as to your own setup, much more on the way.

    2G-ACM X95 Tavor & WWSD 2017 Beta DMR - Stage 3 - Breaching and Clearing
    InRangeTV



    Published on May 9, 2017
    We had a chance to put a X95 Tavor through a 2G-ACM match. It was an opportunity to get some practical shooting time under the clock with this bullpup, so let's find out how it does on the clock!

    Ian shot a not yet completed beta version of his WWSD AR15 DMR build to start testing things out. Ian's rifle has a Primary Arms 2.5x ACSS optic:
    http://www.primaryarms.com/primary-ar...

    Karl & the X95 used a Vortex Strikefire red dot:
    http://www.vortexoptics.com/category/...

    Stage 3 requires firing from some unconventional positions, breaching a wall and cleaning up the remaining targes with a pistol transition.

    Does the shorter OAL & balance of the X95 Tavor really help in this role?

    We were fortunate to get ahold of some new prototype slugs made in the US. These are very heavy slugs and are still under development. Since no high speed camera tests have been done yet, we had the pleasure of doing that. These shells were pre-loaded.

    We were sent some unusual slugs made by Michael Yeh and Jessica & Evan - who have submitted slug designs in the past. Since these resembled a shake weight (weird exercise implement) we decided to just call them that. Hey, at least this isn't a "fidget spinner" video huh?!

    I use jumpcuts because I'm bad at things.

    Part 2 will include: ballistics gel, watermelons, mini shells, slugs, dragon's breath, proper slow motion, and less walking in front of loaded guns. The Chronos camera won't be releasing until around July, so I'm stuck waiting until then. Thanks for watching.
