Default New to Calguns.

Thanks for the welcome.

I saw some discussion on long range shooting. I'm retired, a target pistol shooter for a few years and a CCW carrier, licensed in ILLINOIS and UTAH. with memberships in the GSL and USCCA. My choice of firearms that I frequently use at our local indoor range are RIA/S&W/BROWNNG and RUGER, in 9mm/22lr and TCM22 calibers.

Recently, I've found an interest in the RPR format chambered in .223, since this caliber seems to be more cost efficient for me. Also, I live just outside of the Chicago metropolitan area. Not too many outdoor ranges within at least a two or more hour drive from home that may exceed 300 yards. There are only two that I know of that max out to 500yrds.

As I understand the .223 caliber would suit my needs for these distances. However, as I'm new to the rifle platform, I've read that some dealers advertise the RPR as chambered in .223/5.56NATO. I can't seem to get an answer as to the order of chambering. I can see if the stamping on the barrel is 5.56/.223, one could use either caliber. However, if the barrel is stamped an chambered to .223/5.56; I've read that the 5.56NATO round renders 10,000 psi more than the .223 round. If that's the case, it may be just a matter of time that this could cause a serious condition when at battery. Food for thought????

Again, thanks for the welcome and I look forward to learning a lot more from you guys about the rifle platform, especially information on the RPR.

Welcome jram

I suggest you post this question in the Centerfire Rifles section to get the right people looking and responding.

Good Luck

Welcome cbb.

Just be careful what you bring back.
Ask if you are unsure.

Hi cbburke, welcome back to Calguns. CA has a few restrictions, many of which don't make sense. Don't be afraid to ask questions. You might also make some handgun purchases now, if you had anything in mind. The CA handgun roster restricts our choices and the used prices for off roster handguns is a bit higher.

Default Hello from Czech guy

Good afternoon all!

I am glad I found a group of people who are dedicated to support the constitution of the US. I came to the USA (California) in 2006 from the Czech Republic, and I thought that you guys are going to have more freedom than we do in the Czech Republic, unfortunately living here for past 11 years I see I was mistaken. After getting my citizenship, I joined the USAF and visited many states and countries and saw the difference between California and the rest of the United States. I am sad to see that the state of California is almost like Czechoslovakia before 1989... Many of my friends can't believe me that I can't carry a weapon on me for my protection while they are able to do so back in the Czech Rep. I sure do hope that the laws in Cali will change and will be similar to the rest of the USA.... Where we can be free to carry a weapon for our protection.

I am glad there is a group of people who are fighting for what's right... Thank you for having me here, and I am looking forward to learn some good information from you guys.

Please be safe, and have a nice day.

Czech Guy

Welcome Czech Guy.

OK, I have to ask, what is your opinion of CZs?

(I just picked up an SP-01, have not shot it yet.)
