But I am a glutton for punishment, I guess.
had the BREN back out to the firing line briefly. The son came home and wanted to shoot his new rifle, shown here.
Shooting steel at 100 yards he did not too badly for a beginning. He is VERY happy with his new toy and, of course, wants more ammo. Payday, kiddo, payday.
But some of us MAKE our own ammo, and this one is kind of special. Remember this box?
Nobody wanted the unopened box as a collectible, so...I opened it. These 50+_ year old bullets seem to have aged well, better than I have!
It was pretty consistent. No idea what velocity it is traveling, but this hollow point is a HP in name only, not a varmint bullet, from what I'm told. Again, the BREN worked smooth and easy, as always.
Only out for an hour and most of the time was figuring out where the STG 44 was actually hitting - the 300 yard sight adjustment was what was needed for 100 yards, go figure.
