Re: CMP announces how Army surplus 1911s to be sold

Thank you for the personal attack. You were not there when the DCM sold M1 Carbines and 45 pistols for 20 dollars plus shipping. You were not there when the M1 rifles were sold in the 80's for 178 bucks if you were in a NRA affiliated shooting club and met the qualifications to buy a rifle. I was an...

Re: CMP announces how Army surplus 1911s to be sold

These pistols to be sold by the DCM have been paid for by the American tax payer and War Bonds. The greed that the DCM will price these pistols will be a crime.
The old CMP would never do that to the American shooter or collector.

Re: Mad Minute.

What I have noticed is that many of the countries ranges do not have a range longer than 100 yards,if that. Many members can't no do a mad minute due to the short range or worse yet some baloney rule about one round a second or longer and would not be allowed to do a Mad Minute.

The two cartridges are almost identical in performance. I've been using .303 Britt loads for decades with no issues what so ever.

Got to love "Those converted to 8mm are dangerous." when he was talking about Carcano's. Obviously he never shot one. Just hype.

Re: SHOOTING ACCURACIES

The HG "Recoil Reducers" stunk. I had them in my trap shotgun and they did little to stop felt recoil. I put on pneumatic recoil reducers and had the barrel Magnaported and that really works. The muzzle brake on my rifle is huge by today's standards. There are two layers in the bake that catch a lot...

Re: SHOOTING ACCURACIES

I love old school rifles. For no other reason than they have worked for many decades. I wanted to build a Mile Rifle. It would be old school and in a caliber to just pi$$ off other shooters. The trend nowadays is to spend 25,000 bucks on a rifle and "can" with state of the art optics and blast away ...

Re: RELOADING .22 RIMFIRE

I did one time when in my 30's just to prove it could be done. There were no kits as there are now so I had to improvise. The hardest part was finding the bullets. I had to settle on a long gone nowadays 30 grain .22 bullet for a "hunting" air rifle.They were German made and were pretty much just a ...

Re: reloading 6.5 carcano

Back out primers are low pressure. The Carcano firing pin is adjustable. If the dent looks to be too deep,back it off.
