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.

Smokey - Yes, Yes, of course what you say is very true, just as you state, and I understand, but...but...everyone does not have the same experience and ‘Fetchens’. As I have said, “When one uses ‘always or never’ in a serious sentence, they will usually be wrong.” An old buddy of mine had this sayi...
If I had one, I would start with the Federal, blue box , 170 gr soft points. Velocity is 2360 fps. It is a very mild load. More accurate then the Remington counter-part. Check the spent case for signs of excess pressure. Then proceed on to other loads.
Great answer Smokey. Especially in regards to blanket statements about military rifle consistency. OLDGUNNER, the FR8 rifles started life as Spanish Military M 43s .

J&B weld should not cure to "rubbery" . The quick weld type should still set up 24 hours before being touched. The standard J&B becomes even harder but I let it set ,untouched, for 48 hours. I let the product run down over the sight blade a bit then flip it upside down,so it will hold better. I've u...

Excellent find. Winchester, Fiocchi , et.al. have a 130 gr fmj .38 special load that is both accurate and has "mild" recoil. It duplicates the early Vietnam Era U.S. Airforce load.
