    The 7.62x51 is a good cartridge. EVERYONE makes this ammo. I don't know how close we are to a shooting war in Korea but we don't need to changing horses in midstream. I doubt that any 'one' firearm/cartridge is good for all scenarios. I...

    We can talk 'accuracy' of these rifles but they all shoot bad with bad ammo. The M1A I had would shoot an honest 1 inch group at 100 with iron sights. With a scope that opened up to 2-3 inches. I went thru 3 mounts, including the very best...

    If I remember correctly, there was a deal offered that we declined... if we would adopt the FAL in 7mm/08 ( it had a different name and was toned down just a little) , the rest of our Allies would too... I'm thinking the 7/08 had more at 600 than...

    2% of 100lbs. is 2lbs. So if you have 50lbs of lead and want 2% added tin you need 1lb. of sn (pewter) I think.

    Remington manufactured military (RA) .30-06 had that unique way they crimped the primer. I've seen it in WW1 .30-06 ammo up until the end of WW2. I don't believe it was specific for any particular use and could be used in any weapon when the .30-06...
