So helix are great, dmags are fine too for fsr...most people recomend the fsr springs, mine all feed well without them...

Dmag is the mcs/rap4 two stacks, like the dye dam mag, dmag helix are continuous mcs 20 rnds.

Yep. The Helix mags require the use of a tool which many of us refer to as "anal beads" (you'll see why). The tool is used to push the follower back until it locks. You can comfortably fit 21 balls into a Helix.

ya you have to get the fsr spring to shoot them for the helix.
dmag supposedly can shoot them both, if you dont lose your mind first trying to get fsr into them without modifying the mags. I threw mine in the trash the first day.

when I loaded fsr into a standard helix i got between 8 to 10 shots before they stopped feeding.

oh ya
fsr is definitely worth the box
i run 5 to 7 mags of round but have 2 fsr mags with me all the time.
ill pull them out if i need more accuracy at a further distance, i dont like running them close range seems a waste
but definitely dial in at further range

Good to know. I have a hammer 7 that i just got a jj ceramic for fsr. Amazon.com had a cyclone riffled barrel last year for $23 but i guess its discontinued

Thanks for the info. Cant wait to try some fsr in the hamm 7

Anyone ever use boeshield t-9 wax to put in a barrel? I think thats the product.

No but I used to distribute Boeshield T-9 and I still use it on my bike chains and saw blades. It's basically paraffin wax dissolved in mineral spirit. The solvent evaporates leaving a paraffin film.

I wouldn't use it on a barrel especially not for FSR. I do use it on any low temperature steel friction components, it has excellent anti corrosion attributes with high creep and endures well in the absence of UV.
