Bummer, Striker. Maybe you should give up hand loading and stick to surplus military ammo. [;)]

oldeschool - that M1A was destroyed by a round of surplus (german) ammo. See http://communities.prodigy.net/sportsrec/gz-762d.html

True to form. Those Germans over engineer everything!

It's not the greatest background but the rifle looks pretty good.

That M1A which was destroyed had an aftermarket barrel with NO MARKINGS.
Link Posted: 5/20/2001 8:55:04 AM EDT
The metallurgist's review of that kaboom concluded it was probably an improper heat-treatment of the aftermarket barrel. They found the grain structure of the metal was inferior, causing stress cracks over time that eventually led to the catastrophic failure. The barrel was old and well-worn, and the owner couldn't remember who made the barrel. It had no markings, either. Don't buy cheap parts from bargain-basement sources!

Pardon my ignorance, but what is a snow snake?
Link Posted: 5/20/2001 1:42:56 PM EDT
ColtShorty: Cool set up. Did you paint the stock or buy it? Is it a Fred's stock? If so what camo color? It's too cool. I have a Fred's desert camo. I live in the desert and it's a day desert 6 pattern camo. Like the old day desert BDU's.

Thanks [:D] You can get the stock from: [url]http://members.home.net/nouglyguns/[/url] I actually got mine from one of his auctions at Auction Arms a few years ago, a bit cheaper than they are now. He has quite a few different patterns, no complaints about the quality. The scope is an ATN 6-18X65.

At the start when I saw the "snow snake" question I wanted to say that it was the equal to our jackalope but didn't want to spoil it. Good job.

You mean jackalopes aren't real!?!?!?!?!? And my world comes 'a crashin down.......

Don't listen to these guys; snow snakes are a REAL THREAT. I remember hunting Snipe back in the boy scouts. Almost got bit by one of the buggers, luckily I got outta the way. Those are some fast little bastards, too...I don't suggest going and finding them. Of course, the Snipe never seemed to be around when the Troop leaders weren't around: it's like some strange conspiracy. If I were you, I'd worry about Snow Snakes, Snipes, and all those other things out there that you've never seen but have heard people warning you about. DON'T GO OUT UNPREPARED! Jewbroni~
