Nah screw that I'll consider it a warmup. Now that I know I don't need to aim lower with the T53 than I did during cooler months, I'll shoot that again with 15 rounds for score.I will allow the average of your ten shots to replace the 5 missed .....to hot for a redo!
we have had some really bad 8mm mauser hang fires...... Click..wait for it wait for it waaaaiit forr BANG!Yes, hang fires. I bought 300 loose '78s about 5 years ago. I think I invented the term. With every round there has been this little delay before it went off; not long enough to be a 'real' hang fire.
I had some surplus 7.62 Tokarev that did that. I don’t remember what country made it though.Yes, hang fires. I bought 300 loose '78s about 5 years ago. I think I invented the term. With every round there has been this little delay before it went off; not long enough to be a 'real' hang fire.
Might want to watch the CMP Forums as GP11 comes up for sale there now and then...maybe even post a 'wanted' ad there....May haul the K31 to Granby for some fine tuning. If I have enough GP11 might try to submit another score. Wish some retailer would offer that again. Somebody could sell a container load, easy.

Quality Hardware M1 Carbine shot sitting from a front rest at 100 yards. My reloads 14.6 W-296 110gr. Hornady FMJ. Had to use a little
Kentucky windage as it was putting them somewhat high and to the right first few shots. Have the pics in my phone and (once I figure
how to do it!) I will post them...
S hort jacket, plinksters, critter smackers....they work good on varmints.Pic showing 14 of 15 shots...had a flyer 5 at 1 o'clock out of the pic. The Carbine is one a friend sold me when he got his Winchester in the CMP carbine 'lottery'
a few years ago. I've been pretty happy with my handloads, in the Quality Hardware, but maybe I will try the Inland with some PPU FMJ I have laying around.
I have a bunch of Hornady 100gr. short jackets I haven't used yet and will see how that goes too...
You know, nothing else makes sense. Prolly be back at the range on Saturday. Is there a way to fix the rear site so it won't move that way? Wifes nail polish (clear)Thats a little extreme , a guila over all shoots well in my carbines. Are you sure you did not bump the rear sight.
The M1 carbine rear sight aperture can move under recoil to higher elevations.... On the M2 sight that is.
