    .308 with cuts running parallel

    Yes almost identical That is what another said And that is what somebody also said. Thank you cheers guys that makes sense knowing what the range is used for weekdays. Regards ozone .
  2. . I was as range today and picked up at least 50 used .308 cases and everyone had exactly the same cuts running parallel from the open end back about half the cases length. I wondered what could do this? There were many more that I did not pick up as I walked back and forth to the target from the firing point. They were everywhere in groups of 10 to 15 so the person using the rifle was using the entire range or more than one person was firing similar rifles. Anyway every single case had exactly the same cuts that were deep and sharp enough to see and feel. The cases had only ever been fired once so I imagine the scoring happened as the thing was fired inside the chamber, on inspection one or two others suggested that it was a poorly fitting case in the chamber but it stuck me as quite odd. So what could cause multiple parallel scorings very close together and all the way back half way up the case? ozone .

    Drag bag

    Ah, right ok I understand the military aspect of that. I just saw a gun bag for sale and it was described as a drag bag and it seemed a daft term for it. Have you seen me shoot :-) ozone .

    Drag bag

    . Why are drag bags called drag bags? Please don't say it is because you drag them behind you :-) ozone .
  6. . Hi Bradders Very informative and very interesting for someone like me who has an engineering background and who enjoys it watching a craftsman at work. Out of interest do the blank barrel's come pre rifled? ozone .

    Free app for your phone

    . Yep downloaded. Your first post said it was Makita so I just looked it up and downloaded. I have used it and like you I found it usable. I'm not too sure about the distance measurer though, It reads -.3mtrs when I point at the wall 4mtrs away. Good download though, thanks. ozone .
  8. . Thanks guys. Very interesting reading. Not easy this shooting malarkey eh? ozone .
  9. . I understand that a newly cleaned barrel will affect the way a group of bullets will fire, travel and hit a target, but why. In genral terms, is it down to individual barrels? Do all barrels respond the same way? Is it down to the bullet, do all bullets respond the same way? What I am trying to ask is, is it just trial and error? Do the same make and quality barrels differ or are they all the same? If I had 10 barrels and exactly the same conditions, with the samer ammunition, would the barrels respond exactly the same (given perfect conditions and all exactly the same)? At what point doe a barrel become optimum in performance? Regards ozone .
  10. . Work commitments make it impossible for me to get to the range so it is up for sale. I have for sale a Colt M4 Semi Auto .22 in the box it came with. There is a BSA gun bag with additional shoulder straps. It is in excellent condition and well looked after. Also included is 500 .22lr American Eagle (high velocity) 40 grain solid and 160 CCI .22lr copper plated (high velocity) 40 grain. There is a VTG (SCP-T169) compact CQB optic fitted with extra mounts also included. The gun is located in the Doncaster area and the sale must be face to face, if you want it sent by RFD then those additional costs will be extra. It has been used regularly on the ranges I shoot at and it is great fun at 100 mtrs. It will put 30 rounds into a target about 5 inch across in just a few seconds and it has never missed a beat. I used it at one range out to 300 mtrs and I was hitting the target. Not too accurate at that range but surprising how many rounds actually hit and hit the bull Full licence with available slot open is an obvious requirement of buying the gun. I would like £300 for the whole lot combined and do not want to split it up and sell separately. Thank you looking and if you need any more info please let me know. Thanks Rob .
  11. . Ok thank you. I'm weighing up my options at the moment but I'll get back to you if I decide to take it further. Again thank you ozone .
  12. . Hello Jay. Is the rifle still for sale? Regards ozone .

    Wide Footprint Bipod

    . So basically the wider and heavier the bipod, the less the gun will move at the point of firing the bullet and the more accurate it would be. Taking this to its most extreme if the rifle was locked in a vice and if it was impossible to move, then it would be even more accurate? In a way, it is reducing the impact the human has in holding the rifle? Would that be correct? Regards ozone
