    Not necessarily, long range MLs shoot both grease groove and PP bullets that are bore diameter and they depend on slug up to groove diameter for them to shoot accurately out to and beyond 1000yd. Some BPCR shooters do the same with PP bullets in...

    It has been an education for sure. There are a lot of pitfalls so if you decide you want to go this route get a hold of me and I can fill you in on the ones I've encountered. I THINK I'm on the right road now. Our club mid-range championship match...

    I got it from the Nepal Cache back in 2005 when they came on the market. I worked in South Africa for a couple years and sort of fell in love them. Here is a group at 100yd from it as well as a couple of small frame Martinis that I acquired after...

    The average age of NMLRA members is 70 years, I'm 72. If the organization doesn't turn around it WILL be dead in 10 years or so and they will be dividing the assets. Short of going to the national black rifle association. I'm not sure if it has a...

    Sharps Straight. CG, I shot a LR Match at Camp Atterbury Thur and Fri with my 45-70 Pedersoli Sharps and I thought I had a 22 Yesterday in the 40-50 the first couple rounds. I'm not particularly sensitive to recoil but the 40-50 was quite...

    A lot of the WWII mechanics swear by it in aircraft fuel. The guy I use to fly for used it in all of his airplanes and he was an A&P as well and did all of his own maintenance. Our engines typically ran 600 to 700 hours past recommended overhaul....

    To say that this 40-50 has been an experience is an understatement. I have run into problems that I never even thought about when I ordered this rifle. Anyway after the last round of education I got some real promising results at 300yd. I took the...

    The real Heydays were in the 70s and 80s. There were no vacancies in commercial row and it was hard to find a parking place. I guess the upside now is you don't have to pay to get in but there doesn't seem to be much happening either. Of course the...

    Standard .303 Mk VII ball consisted of a 174 grain flat based spitzer with a velocity of 2440 fps, an excellent rifle cartridge. To extend the range of the Vickers machine gun for indirect fire, Mk VIIIz ball was developed. Upping the velocity to...

    I've been working on a 40-50 for several months now. I got brass from Graf's and just ordered 150 cases the other day that they had on sale. I had to ream my brass for the .408 boolits after fire forming. The sides are too thick otherwise. Bob

    "What is the last gun you bought?" I was going to say the East India Company musket from 1842, but that is a .75 caliber smoothbore. If it is to be a rifle, rather than gun, then it would be the Snider Enfield Mk II**.
