    reddog, I concur with your analysis. Why do we "Need" BATFE to license a citizen's Second Amendment rights we had before the Gun Control Act of 1968? How many criminals seek to obtain a C&R license? When will the gun controllers STOP licensing...

    My opinion is the C&R License merely reestablishes the Constitutional Rights ALL Citizens had under the Second Amendment BEFORE GCA 1968! How many Criminals fill out a BATFE Form 4473 to Acquire their guns? WHY must honest folks fill out a BATFE...

    Eric, My Garands like the Lee .312-185R, sized .309, 36 grains IMR4895, and CCI primer. The load cycles all my rifles and boolits hit the same point of aim/point of impact at 100 yards as my Ball loads and 150 jacketed reloads. Adam
