Re: 7.62 NATO Garand Question

Ya, I understand what you said Dale. I guess I am a bit leery that it MIGHT have that insert. I have never read of one ejected out with the case but have read it can happen. I think I will buy it as I cant see an insert with a close look with a bore light.

.308 49/56 again

I purchaced both of my 49/56's in 2002. The first was in 7.5x54. A week later I saw one in .308 win. and bought it too. As many of you know the monkey converted .308's were 90% bummer. The 7.5 one ran perfectly. The .308 was ripping the rims off the brass from the start. And I thought the action upo...
