    Better than a Marlin. Henrys do not have the dumb cross bolt safety. Besides the current junk cranked out by Remington is not a Marlin either. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Henry makes a sold rifle, but like many I am not interested because of the lack of a loading gate. If Henry started making rifles with a loading gate I would be interested in one of their 45-70s, and 357s. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Hot loaded 9mm SMG ammo is a well recognized fact. If you could find a previous thread on this sort of thing IIRC Gibson mentioned extra hot .30 ammunition being manufactured for use in the 1919a6 I think in the 60's or later. The A6 had several...

    Yes it is true the arsenals switched from the recommended extruded powder to ball powder. The residue left by the powder was a calcium/carbon deposit that was very hard. The gas piston of the M16 series is part of the bolt with the cylinder being...

    I suspect that the origin of the smoothbore M16 myth came from very far sighted recruits looking down the bore when cleaning and seeing nothing. My older Brother was very far sighted and too stubborn to wear reading glasses. I once showed him a...

    "Are you trying to say the 14 twist didn't stabilize the bullet and it tumbled causing more damage? Might be where the story of smooth bore M16's got stated." Not stating that at all. I didn't mention anything about a "smooth bore M16" either. ...

    Larry can address that far better than I can. He live it. That is just one of the issues on why the M16 had issues. McNamra and the slide rule boys made a bunch of changes to the M16 and ammo. They also ignored Stoner on most of his...

    During WWII and Korea ammo was hard to get it was common to score or cut the point off of 30 cal FMJ's so they would expand. Thin jacket is a relative term. The 55 grain M193 bullet ricochets like crazy. In my early days I tried shooting...

    Per various gun rags like the Rifleman the claim was that the 55 grain ball M193 bullet was designed too be base heavy so when fired from the initial designed 14 twist barrels the bullet was marginally stabile and it would tumble on impact. The 14...
