    Maybe John, but if it's like my LDT/Anglo Customs L1A1 it has been re-chambered for .308. Now we can have the .308/7.62mm debate!

    I've got through over 100 rounds in one session with not a hard extraction in sight

    Its certainly not a 'target' load, but it consistently hits a figure 11 target at 600 yds

    Oh, here we go again Charlie ....

    I've tried the Russianicon steel cased stuff, loaded with curry powder and cushed celluloid film / hundreds and thousands / powdered milk etc and it functions very well, couldn't hit a barn door if it fell off the hinges on top of me though!

    But GGG, from my Lithgowicon with my 'good' SUIT on was printing very small groups at 100 yds, as Charlie can attest on our last outing...
