Since I don't have all that many tools at my apartment and I'm excited to get this frame finished, I broke out the files and sandpaper this evening and spent a good few hours blending the unmachined surfaces. After filing I used 600 sandpaper to clean things up then took some 1200 sandpaper and soapy water to the entire thing. I still need to polish out some file marks and do a little more blending but for the most part the front end is nearly complete. I'll for sure have to polish everything once all the cutting is finished but I got a pretty good head start.

Get a 1911 in .38 super or 10MM.


BEASTLY!

Those aren't the easiest or cheapest rounds to come by.
Although I still want a 10mm (Glock, 1911, etc.) oh so badly.

Depends on what you're looking for and where you're buying it. Box of 20 rounds for me in .40S&W Federal Hydra Shok Hollow Points is about a buck a round, $20 for a box give or take a buck.

Box of 50 rounds non hollow points is also around $20.

Local range ammo is $14 for 50 rounds, but some of it is reloaded and random cases.

Brick of 500 rounds for my 10/22 ranges from $20-$35

Prices are a little different around here.

$36.99 for a 50 round box of .40 Federal HST (hollow point/self defense round).

$14 per 50 of .40 Blazer Brass (FMJ/target rounds).

$15 for 550 rounds of Remington .22 LR.

My 7.62NATO was $0.53/round including shipping.

Increased stopping power due to expansion upon impact and decreased chance of pass thru.
