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.

U.S. ENGLISH QUIRK

#1 Post by OLDGUNNER » Sat Apr 07, 2018 10:10 pm

JUST A QUIRK IN GUN MAKING ENGLISH – A barrel is made by drilling a ‘Bore’. Then the grooves are cut into the bore and then some call this cutting the ‘Riflings’. Well, the riflings are not being ‘cut’...they are just that metal which is left after cutting the grooves. And it will sometime be seen, well usually, where someone is mistakenly trying to word things more correctly and call the normal 0.308 groove diameter as the bore where the true bore may be 0.010 less, or 0.298. I think the US sometimes looks at these thing a little differently than the rest of the world. And this is often seen in Gun Making Language and Diagrams....huh? Definitely as has been said, "No big thing."
