Re: The Gun Room

And back to Fort Polk with 81 mm mortars, 26 lb HE projectile 4700 yds at charge 9 at maximum range elevation, loudest thing I have ever been that close to. So three man team has to each carry either the bipod, the base plate or the barrel. Those memories go back to 1971. Think of all the things fro...

So we go back and forth in the different parts of our mi...

Re: The Gun Room

Appreciate the input. Apparently after more suction they are anticipating he can go home tomorrow night. If I don't know I seek info from those who do whether it is 32-20s or something like this.

Of course I realize as you note the range of possibilities. Haven't we seen that with old friends?

OK Six, this was all I did with the 25-35. You will see it all worked except those with the old primers. H380 worked fine and should cause no pressure issues. Ed Matunas recommended it for all weights in the 7-08 which I found to be true. It can be ysed in a wide range of cartridges.
