    That is impressive, I'm still admiring the target pics! Every shot from the swaged cast bullet is in the black while it looks like there are a few fliers from the unswaged cast boolit with 8 shots out of the black! Looks like you have a winner there...

    Doubling is common with both the M1 and M-14 triggers that have been stoned a little to much or heavily worn. The fix is simple and only requires a small piece of sand paper. The cause is your finger bump firing the trigger. ...
