Re: 800 yards with the M-1917 again

Nice shooting Rob! May I pick your brain? I am developing a 200 yard reduced recoil 30-06 load for some young people. The rifle is also an M 1917. Would crimping help at this range? What does crimping do for accuracy? I am using a 155 grain hornady HPBT with a canalure.The barrel is a brand new Crit...

Re: SOME THOUGHTS ON ACCURACY & OTHERS

The US has long been an Oligarchy. Basically the Banks and Government have merged at this point. This process clearly started in the early Progressive Era under Roosevelt and later Wilson. W.J. Bryant said after losing the 1900 Presidential Election that the next war would be with Germany. He was co...

Re: SOME THOUGHTS ON ACCURACY & OTHERS

They emasculate teachers in Japan! Ouch! (just kidding..I just found that funny.) The dumbing down was done on purpose here. More people going to college means more social indoctrination and long-term debt. Support the system and you receive free child care up until age 18. Logic and Classical Philo...

Re: United States Military Academies

Congrats!

Memorize Plebe knowledge before starting Cadet Basic Training. Learn the USAF Ranks. Learn to polish brass and do spit shines on low quarters. Get in running shape.

Good luck!

Re: Did you know,Martini Cadet ammunition in WWII?.......

Happy Easter Everyone!

I decided to load an experimental batch of 32 Special for my Cadet Martini.

Bullet is a .323 Privi Partizan 125 grain FMJBT Hollow Base bullet

18 grains of AA5744 powder. The cartridge chambers normally.

I will test this next weekend hopefully.

Re: Did you know,Martini Cadet ammunition in WWII?.......

Great post! It looks like the 120 grain jacketed bullet was .318 in diameter. I wonder if the Privi Partizan 125 grain .323 bullet would work? It has a hollow base.
