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.

I like how this article says the 7.62x51 has too much mass not enough powder didn't we have a round at one time that had much more powder :snooty:

Ahhhhhh, if only the M1 Garand had been released in the catridge it was originally designed around ... the .276 Pedersen. Kind of an ‘early’ 7mm-08/6.5 Creedmore-like long-for-cailber-bullet cartridge.

Trivia - Some may not realize that it put 10-rounds into the infamous Garand ‘en bloc’ clip!
