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: Headspace Gauge Info Link

Your Brownell's article is interesting as who ever wrote it does not understand headspace . They state " bad headspace causes the case to swell in diameter at the base . That has nothing to do with headspace , just chamber dia or very high pressure . All rifles except tight chamber benchrest rifles ...

Re: Old surplusrifle.com Files

It is not just that the info is " dated " , it was just lies and bad info by a person of very low intelligence who had no idea what he was doing . When all his tools and rifles when for sale after his passing it was a mess . All the tools , dies , measuring tools were broken as he did not know how t...

Re: Old surplusrifle.com Files

A lot of that information really should be put to rest , it was really bad . Most of the reloading articles and shooting articles were all pure BS . The guy who wrote those was the local range fool . He was one of the worst reloaders and shooters we ever had at the local range and weekly matches . T...

Re: Type 99 bullets test at 500 yards...Range Report

I have never seen a Hornady .312 180 grain sp bullet . I am pretty sure they do not make one . What rifle and bullet were you actually using ?

A Kokura series 10 Type -99 is a short rifle . Kokura never made a Type-99 long rifle .

Re: 800 yards with the M-1917 again

You are not reloading right if it takes a crimp to reduce your extreme spread . With test groups from over 2000 different military rifles of my own , crimping never made any thing better . An additional 30 lbs of bullet pull on a 40,000 psi load is a 0.00075 % increase . Deforming the bullet will mo...

Re: 800 yards with the M-1917 again

Part of what I was talking about was over 15 years of as issued MILITARY rifle matches . None of the top shooters with military rifles crimped anything and it took 1 inch , or less groups to have small group of the match . Good reloading was the key to winning our matches with military rifles . The ...

Re: 800 yards with the M-1917 again

Crimping , that would depend on what you accept for accuracy . Do you really shoot 1 inch 5 - shot groups at 100 yards with your loads in military rifles ? That is what it took to win the small group in about every match we had . Do shoot in national level bench rest matches ? At that level nobody c...

Re: 800 yards with the M-1917 again

How light of a recoil load are you looking for ? I have some loads that shoot great at 200 yards and would feel almost like a .22 in a heavy rifle like the M-17 . Unless you have problems with your reloading , crimping hurts accuracy . NObody at any higher level accuracy matches crimps anything . An...

Re: PCI 6.5x50 ammo

The guy on youtube does not really understand what and why it happened . First it was not a hangfire . What happened is not uncommon with several types of military rifles with ammo made by reloaders or even companies who do not understand how military rifles work . There is nothing wrong with the po...

Re: Please help identify this Arisaka

Carbine with a broken stock needs a quick fix from a time where parts were much harder to find . The Chinese never left the mum on a redone rifle and a Chinese rifle should have an import stamp on it .

Re: Please help identify this Arisaka

The stock is a cut down from a T-38 rifle . No telling who did it , except it was not the Japanese . As crudely as it is done with an oddball finish , I would not think it was the Chinese either . My vote will go to bubba .

Re: "Snap this one up!"

The carbine is known as the Kar-88 . The Kar-88 was not issued to the artillery , they got the Gew-91 . The Kar-88 was not issued to regular army troops , they used the Gew-88 . No Gew-88's were ever given the 05 update for clip loading . No Kar-88's went to Turkey , so none are Turk marked . The or...
