Wow...great links. Thanks.:cool: I think we may have hit on an answer. That thing has been counterbored. The riflings look to be in excellent condition, but the bullet falls way in. Apparently when cold (40 deg), not getting enough bite into the bullet. After14 rounds fired, I guess there was...

[quote]Perhaps a burr that needed a couple of shots to clear out? [/quote] That's a possibility, but I kinda doubt it. I carefully inspected the bore to ensure I got out every bit of that nasty-ass cosmoline. I guess the way to test out that hypothesis is to fire it again cold in 40-ish deg. wea...

185 ball. What had me scratching my head is that it performed so poorly at first, but then greatly tightened up once the barrel got warm. Was 40 deg outside. Surely the Ruskies wouldn't have made a rife that needed to be warmed-up first....

Mosin-Nagant Yesterday. Looking for comments - CoastieGM
Yesterday for the first I finally fired a Mosin I acquired a few years back. Tula armory, hex receiver, pristine bore. As I would methodically approach any weapon, I started at 25 and 50 yards...groups sucked big green donkey balls. Volley 1 (25 yds): Poor group at 11 o'clock Volley 2 (50 yds...

Trying to max out your MERV in a single filter can cause you problems. I've had indoor allergy issues for years and I cater to a niche rent-house market for those with similar issues (& charging higher rent), so I'm pretty well versed in this arena. I've found it's best to filter in two stages...

In the southwest high deserts, land surface rights were historically linked to water rights. Your water claim affords you surface rights to the lands drained by your claimed water structure. Bundy's family filed the water rights claims long before the BLM existed. BLM came in and usurped this longst...
