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: .17 caliber rifle

I got my first .17 in 1972 when Remington offer the 700 rifle in the new .17 Remington. What a fun cartridge for Prairie Dog hunting! Out to 300 yards it is like shooting a LASER beam. I bought the .17 HMR and .17 Mach II when they first came out and the .17 HMR did very well at 100 yards hunting Co...

Re: Type "I" Carcano 6.5 Jap rifle question

I loaded up some .262.264.267's to try at our 500 yard Santa Shoot practice this Saturday. No pressure signs with any bullet tried. Should be interesting to see which bullet the rifle really shoots well.

Re: Type "I" Carcano 6.5 Jap rifle question

I'll try some .264, but reports on the web at ranges past 100 yards were not good using .264.

I think they are Dutch. I also have some .266 Italian RN as well.

Re: 1896/11...

Since your rifle was given to the soldier who had had it issued to him, you can bet it has been well taken cared for. Make sure to check for a troop tag under the butt plate. Of all the Swiss "bolt" rifles I own, the M-1911 is the most accurate rifle hands down. Mine will out shoot any of mine or th...

Re: Type "I" Carcano 6.5 Jap rifle question

The chamber in my rifle is very tight. I had to set the sizing die down to the shell holder with NEW brass in order to close the bolt on an empty case. I have a supply of .268 round nose bullet,original and Hornandy but would like to find a Spitzer type bullet to try at long range. I'm not sure anyo...

Re: Type "I" Carcano 6.5 Jap rifle question

I just slugged the bore. It reads .267. The Medford rifling is very apparent. Bore is like new.

Re: Type "I" Carcano 6.5 Jap rifle question

Cool beans.
1. What is the correct bore diameter as made?
2. How "tight" is the chamber on your 6.5 Jap rifles?
3. Would you consider the Carcano/Jap rifles accurate?
4. What is the correct ZERO range for these rifles?
Thanks for your info and incite on the Type "I" rifles.

Re: Vz 98/22 sight trouble

These rifles are known to be good shooters. I'd check my front sight height first. It sounds like it has been filed down ( shooting high)

Re: Stopping Power - Good Overview Video

Shot placement is the key to any round fired. Hitting a nerve bundle or the brain, the attacker is going to slow down quickly. The tried and true Double-Tap, center of mass and face,shot placement will stop most assailants, no matter what caliber it is. Today's ammo is nothing like what it was just ...

Re: SOG Southern Ohio Guns is history

I had bought many "kits" from them, as well as receivers and ten years ago, 50,000 rounds of South African 7.62x51mm ammo. ( a full two ton pallet for the club)
It is very sad to hear they are now history.
Now lets see what happens to AIM and Centerfire Systems.

Next time your out this way, bring that new toy. I'd bet you'd have a ball shooting it at 800 meters.
