May 11, 2019 - A blustery, overcast 200 yard Military Rifle Competition with Iron Sights!
Viewers of one of my live streams noticed the distinct color lines on my rifle brass - this video is a demonstration of how I anneal cases.
A while back, Mike Treen sent me a batch of his cast bullets to try - some very nicely cast Lyman 3118! This bullet is typically used in .32-20, and Mike suggested I try them in 300 AAC Blackout. I've finally done something with a portion of the bullets...
Last Fall, the powder coated plain base NOE 314-162-FN cast bullet showed promise in my 1891 Argentine Cavalry Carbine. I prepared more bullets to try in the 1891 Argentine Engineer Carbine, along with a small batch of powder coated Lyman 311291 cast bullets.
A quick pre-match visit to the range to verify adjustments that I made to the front sight of my 1891 Argentine Mauser "Dirty Tina".
"I'd like to see what happens with an extra grain of powder in the carbine" - westcovinadodge A quick V/R to westcovinadodge - it appears that 17.0 grains of Alliant 2400 is on the edge!
