Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

Re: 800 yards with the M-1917 again

Crimping , that would depend on what you accept for accuracy . Do you really shoot 1 inch 5 - shot groups at 100 yards with your loads in military rifles ? That is what it took to win the small group in about every match we had . Do shoot in national level bench rest matches ? At that level nobody ...

Re: 1898 krag sporter

“Military barrel”...that would be a commercial mfg one, and if restored to GI condition with new wood, it would still be a parts gun with no collector value.

Re: 800 yards with the M-1917 again

Looks like winds could be 18 MPH for Saturday’s match. Could be a good bit of “left hold” to hit That silhouette!

Re: F-104 Trivia

Those flights into combat are always dangerous....rank is no guarantee of safety. Summer of 1967 two B52s collided mid air off shore of our Hospital in Vietnam. I talked to a survivor who was pilot of one of the buffs flying to a bombing mission in darkness. He said the wing of another B52 in the fl...

Re: JFK

These conspiracy people are getting annoying, if not dangerous to a civil society. Not everything was, is, or will be a conspiracy. The easiest explanation usually is true. I do remember one show trying to show Oswalt didn't do it because the ammo they were using didn't go boom so they were convinc...

Snap shoot went well. Two shooters hit 18 out of 20 shots and all shooters had fun.

Same problem with 7.7 Jap. see https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EC5SVAW5EwA

also pistol ammo https://www.glocktalk.com/threads/do-no ... 2.1518479/

PCI = Poor Crappy Ignition
The handgun ammo: Precision One, seems to be a separate crappy ammo outfit.

Re: My $99 CZ-52

Ok. It’s what I was told somewhere. Just doing my part to spread confusion. LOL. I do know the action is strong from my past load testing. I went a bit hot with some tests but it all held together. I was young and dumb and very fortunate. My max load test pushed an 85 grain Hornady XTP .312 bullet ...

Re: My $99 CZ-52

I think that wear isn’t anything to worry about. Also, “Czech 7.62x25 machine gun ammo” is a myth, and so is it’s ability to blow up Tokarevs.

Re: Garand vs. M14

“Average” rate of fire for an M1 Garand...57rds per minute??? Aimed fire? Even just shooting nothing. I call major BS on that. You consider yourself an average Garand jockey?.Just try that some time. Load up a web belt or bandolier with clips and start shooting. And if it nothing but a “mag dump” co...

Re: NM MILSURP Snap Shooting match for May

Sounds great, will be there for sure! Move that squad closer (25 to 40 yards) and you have a great handgun match (hit all four in six seconds?)

Re: Question: 7 mm Mausers, worn bores, and powder coating jacketed bullets

I routinely bump .323 bullets up to .329 and have had no problems with accuracy. Your concerns about a bullet failing upon impact is valid. The jacket may have been thinned enough to cause problems at high speed. A round nosed bullet may be a better path to take. Round nose bullets would be my firs...

I can’t see how a bump up size operation of .003” would make a jacketed bullet any less trustworthy in the integrity department.
