The best part I believe that it would add reliability to semi pistols. I would like to think.
.7 grams? Is that a statistically sound number? That's lower than the range ScottQ said to expect, and a lot lower than I was hoping for.

TMC does not shoot FSR..they built an underpriced magfed marker to try and get rid of FSR building companies. They want your paint buying, not your FSR buying.

In their defense, the rounds weren't available when they launched the gun a few months ago.

...and if God hadn't intended us to shoot FS50s through that thing he wouldn't have given us Dremels.

But, the TMC .68 is not FSR capable either. Scougar makes a valid point, this was done on purpose with the intent to discourage use of FSR. So itís unlikely we will see a magazine that feeds FSR .50 for a while for the TMC. Likely the first attempts with be 3D printed.

Checked on one of those cen-tech scales. I can check it against a powder scale.

Given how tiny these things are, that's what I would recommend, that and getting an average.
