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.

A lot of unhappy tales with PCI 7.7x58 Japanese ammo are around too.

Re: My $99 CZ-52

Ok. It’s what I was told somewhere. Just doing my part to spread confusion. LOL. I do know the action is strong from my past load testing. I went a bit hot with some tests but it all held together. I was young and dumb and very fortunate. My max load test pushed an 85 grain Hornady XTP .312 bullet ...

Re: My $99 CZ-52

I think that wear isn’t anything to worry about. Also, “Czech 7.62x25 machine gun ammo” is a myth, and so is it’s ability to blow up Tokarevs.

Re: Garand vs. M14

“Average” rate of fire for an M1 Garand...57rds per minute??? Aimed fire? Even just shooting nothing. I call major BS on that. You consider yourself an average Garand jockey?.Just try that some time. Load up a web belt or bandolier with clips and start shooting. And if it nothing but a “mag dump” co...

Re: NM MILSURP Snap Shooting match for May

Sounds great, will be there for sure! Move that squad closer (25 to 40 yards) and you have a great handgun match (hit all four in six seconds?)

Re: Question: 7 mm Mausers, worn bores, and powder coating jacketed bullets

I routinely bump .323 bullets up to .329 and have had no problems with accuracy. Your concerns about a bullet failing upon impact is valid. The jacket may have been thinned enough to cause problems at high speed. A round nosed bullet may be a better path to take. Round nose bullets would be my firs...

I can’t see how a bump up size operation of .003” would make a jacketed bullet any less trustworthy in the integrity department.

Re: Is this now your favorite 6 pack?

IMO, it's a cheap marketing gimmick that puts more money in FIOCCHI pocket for selling less ammo, 2 boxes of 50 rounds (100 rounds) is about 25 bucks. I can of 90 rounds is 27 bucks so who really comes out in this? it certinly isn't the comsumer I saw them for $24.50 if you buy 5 cans. Not too bad....

Is this now your favorite 6 pack?

Fiocchi is now selling ammo in beer cans. I guess a good sealed package for those who have storage concerns.

Nothing I will jump on but I like the novel idea. Anyone for a 6 pack of 9mm?

I sold my French issue M49 on Gunbroker a while back. Winner was a French collector. He said they were not common there. Simpson’s LTD exported it to him.

Re: NM MILSURPS 300 meter "Mad Minute" match

100% of five shots would not win over 80% of 20 shots.......and so on. Math involved?..that is honestly beyond me... 15 hits in a minute beats 5 hits. Are Total rounds fired and number of misses even a factor in a speed contest? I sure will give it a try. Sounds like a fun military surplus shooting...

Re: NM MILSURPS 300 meter "Mad Minute" match

“Scores will be: Total number of Shots fired and Rounds on Target. The higher number of accurate shots on target will win.”

% of hits wins, not total hits in 1 minute? If % ...then I am quitting after one carefully aimed shot.

I wouldn’t worry about the serial number...that is a 1968 requirement. on January 3, 2015. In 1968, the Gun Control Act (GCA) imposed numerous additional requirements in the arena of gun manufacture. As per the GCA, all firearms newly manufactured or imported into the United States are required to b...
