    Hello Wineman,
    thanks a lot !

    Really detailed information, especially because of the info to the barrels and the Item-Nr. A 174 grain- BT-bullet which was originally meant for the .303 British-Cartridge is very accurate, that's a surprise to me. Fine surprise.. :-)
    Anyway, I have now to check many of my military rifle-barrels this spring. I can't put off that longer. In my Enforcer it is more urgent than it is with the other barrels.. .
    And, yes, the workup has to be really carefully.
    I have a lot of work to do, I see.. ;-)
    I wish a good start in the new week

    Greetings from"Heidiland"

    Hello Wineman,

    is it these type of bullets ? Beside of a possible change of the packaging, of course.. .
