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: SOME THOUGHTS ON ACCURACY & OTHERS

Here is the only gunsmithing joke that I know for your amusement:

How do you make a million dollars in the gunsmithing business?

Start out with 2 million!

Any pictures of your 1917 S&W?

Re: Finally a Martini Enfield in 303

Nice Martini!

Any plans for a range report? I am curious as how well they shoot!

Congratulations again!

Re: SOME THOUGHTS ON ACCURACY & OTHERS

Great pictures of Monument Valley...lots of happy memories of that place for me..

I once slept under the stars at the Sleeping Bear camp ground back in 2013.

Ever visit John Wayne's house near there?

Re: 800 yards with the M-1917 again

Nice shooting Rob and Ammolab! Thanks for the advice. The M 1917 did extremely well with cast bullets at 200 yards. I used 23 grains of shooter's world Buffalo Rifle powder with a 200 grain Lyman 311299 cast bullet. The young people enjoyed shooting it. I miss out west with their wonderful long rang...

Re: Saudis celebrating with guns

This reminds me of an old memory from my first deployment to Iraq...back when I was on Patrol Base Banzai/Camp Justice in Kadamiyah, Baghdad. The Iraqi Football (Soccer) team made the quarterfinals for the 2004 Olympics. The resulting celebratory small arms fire came up on Q36 and Q37 counter-batter...

Thanks Rob.

I have some .311 sized Lyman 311299s that I can try.

Re: 800 yards with the M-1917 again

Nice shooting Rob! May I pick your brain? I am developing a 200 yard reduced recoil 30-06 load for some young people. The rifle is also an M 1917. Would crimping help at this range? What does crimping do for accuracy? I am using a 155 grain hornady HPBT with a canalure.The barrel is a brand new Crit...

Re: SOME THOUGHTS ON ACCURACY & OTHERS

The US has long been an Oligarchy. Basically the Banks and Government have merged at this point. This process clearly started in the early Progressive Era under Roosevelt and later Wilson. W.J. Bryant said after losing the 1900 Presidential Election that the next war would be with Germany. He was co...
