Re: I recently picked up a Ishapore 2A 1964

Better, no, slightly different yes. There were all sorts of (unproven) rumors about "Better Steel" or "Better Heat Treatment", none have ever been proven. Its just re barreled for the 7.62mm cartridge. IIRC the 2A retained the .303 sight unit, the 2A1 got a sight calibrated for 147r 7.62 NATO. Its a...

Re: Target no4 mk2

Not really difficult. Undo the protector screw & remove the protector. (on the rifle). With the barrel supported so you do not beat on the forend & upper handguard, drive the cross pin out of the sight block (dovetail stage) with a hammer & punch (usually to the LEFT looking as you'd shoot it.) A li...

Re: I recently picked up a Ishapore 2A 1964

Get any surplus 7.62 ammo with the NATO "+ in a 0" headstamp & shoot that.
get some NATO standard 5-round chargers (stripper clips) too.
Steel case (including the brass washed stuff is cheap crap & thats how it'll perform.

Mystery .311" 180 Gr Bullet ID please.

Does anyone recognize this particular bullet for a brand or manufacturer? I've confirmed the wight as 180 Gr & The diameter as 0.311" by measuring. They are in a Norma box, but its not the original because its labelled for .308. The Norma line doesn't include a .311 bullet. Its not a Hornady, Speer,...

Thanks. By nature I'm not a "Joiner" but I'm seeing that it's time to just hunker down, dig in & fight. Not my first choice but that's where it going currently. I really wish it wasn't though.

Re: cleaning firearms

Alcohol is a good degeaser & cosmolene solvent.
HOWEVER
It does absorb (literally) Water.
For that reason I always recommend thoroughly wiping down & re oiling immediately after every use.
