  1. I have some of these little rounds that I'll never use for various reasons, for one I don't have a rifle to take them, I bought a bunch of .17 ammo from a club member who was giving up his FAC and not all of it was HMR - Doh!

It gets confusing when people keep calling them milliradians or worse still, mil-rads. They'll be calling 'bullets', 'heads' soon and if enough people doeventually it'll become right.😉

  7. Don't do it, it can serve no purpose other than to state a previously private, but stolen, firearm was used in a criminal shooting. Adds to statistics against civilian ownership of firearms. Once the police recover your firearm they can trace it back to you easily and forensics will fire it to not only get a bullet but also a recently fired case to link any other crimes. Only if they recall every case from every stolen firearm to check against a found case could it even potentially help them and all it will add to the investigation is to link your name to the crimes - there is no cri
  8. Argh! Stop running, start using. 🤨
