$450 for a well-run two day course using a shoothouse, sims, and full protective gear is a crazy good value. It was a great write-up, too. You're like me, though... maybe a little too hard on...

Fed Flite Control 8 pellet can keep a shockingly tight spread to 20-25 yards. Barrel length has very little impact. And making 50yd slug shots with even relatively crude rifle or ghost ring sights is...

The front sight situation is the tricky bit. But you could always just go optic-only.

In this case, it wasn't a loose screw so much as a poor decision by the manufacturer to not use a detent on it. However, the reality is that I'm probably going to put an optic on it anyways, probably...

I have an Adams Arms 5.45x39 upper. Only complaint is the tendency of the spigot and faucet to fuse themselves together, so you want to pull them for cleaning after shooting. Not sure if that's a...

Oh, I agree. But some people are also claiming they're loading at 500 rounds an hour on one, without a bullet feeder and a case feeder. There's a lot of room for things to go wrong at that pace.

I went for it. ~$79 shipped with tax for 500 308 bullets in a can. Will screw around with them for cheaper 300 and 308 loads. Literally never seen cheaper 308 bullets that weren't pulls.
