    When I first started shooting NRA Highpower Service Rifle Competition with M1's and M-14's I only used GI ammo or loads with CCI #41 primers. After watching the military teams shoot 100,000's of Federal Gold Medal match I became much less...

    I've done maybe 200 or 250 trigger jobs on M1's or M-14's. Everyone one that has doubling issues was corrected by process laid out in post two. I have only shot a limited number of Federal primers in an M1. I have fired a large number of...

    Take a black magic marker and color the case than insert into the chamber and rotate the case. You will be able to see were the contact is. Once you do that you can figure out why.

    I like both the heart and liver but I would not grind liver and add to hamburger. Hearts no issue but the taste and color of liver is not a good mix with hamburger in my opinion. Liver is reserved to liver and onions at my house.
