    N0. 4 Mk1* at the range, interesting results

    I took my two grandsons to the range today. They are 12 & 13. One of the rifles they fired was my 1942 Long Branch N0. 4 Mk1* I had some 174 grain loads that I had made up, and some 150 grain loads that I had picked up at a gun show.
    The first pic shows a group my 12 year old fired, using the 174 grain loads.





    This pic is of a "group" fired using the 150 grain loads.



    Obviously a problem with that one. Guess I'll stick with the 174s.

    The kids had a great time and so did I. They also fired my 1896 Kragicon sporter, Norinco 1911A1, and Stevens Crackshot 26 single shot .22 rifle.

    My shortened No.1 Mk.3* does the sideways bullet trick with boat tailed 174gr projectiles. Usefully accurate out to 100 yards, surprisingly. But every hole shows a near-on 90 degree hit!

    I use the Hornady 150's as they are .312 behind !!gn of 2209 and they really work well out of either of my 4's I always have doubts about shooting other peoples reloaded ammo so I don't.
    I would rather pull it to bits and start again could be any number of reasons for the tumbling which could take an entire thread to get to grips with but obviously it don't work
