    Bugger when that happens. Do you homeload or use factory?

    A word of warning. Cycling those steel cased rounds from the magazine in large doses can wear the lower side of the chamber mouth. A fried of mine got a surprise after he ran out of the steel cases ammo he was using and went back to handloads. After 1500+ round so steel case his chamber mouth was wallowed out. Or that's what he claims (I never saw the rifle myself.) Just an FYI. ~Muir

    I use a thing known as a Shot Saver, slips into the end of the barrel and saves loads of ammo, it will get you on the paper easily also allows zero to be checked without firing a shot.

    Deben sell them, wouldn't be without it.

    If anyone is interested I have a spare I might sell......

    regards WB.
