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: JFK

These conspiracy people are getting annoying, if not dangerous to a civil society. Not everything was, is, or will be a conspiracy. The easiest explanation usually is true. I do remember one show trying to show Oswalt didn't do it because the ammo they were using didn't go boom so they were convinc...

Snap shoot went well. Two shooters hit 18 out of 20 shots and all shooters had fun.

PCI = Poor Crappy Ignition
The handgun ammo: Precision One, seems to be a separate crappy ammo outfit.

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?

Re: French MAS 1949 semi Auto rifle

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.
