Thread: DSC1 and factory ammo

  1. #1

    Question DSC1 and factory ammo

    Folks,

    Just out of interest, what is the reason that you have to use factory ammo for the shooting test on a DSC1 ??

    Just because you are paranoid, doesn't mean they aren't out to get you......

    Ah....That makes sense.

    I thought it had to be something sensible.

    Is that all DSC1 shooting tests or only those run by certain organisations - BASC for example? There was no restriction on the assessment I took via BDS year before last.

    Have to say the BDS didnt have a restriction with my course, infact the instructors knew I was using reloads. I cant understand the reasoning if they were to check you were using factory, would they also check the rifle was in proof for example or check the mod was proof marked?

    It doesn't and it isn't.

    I don't remember being told that I had to use Factory ammunition nor were they checked on the firing line.

    One day I want to be as wonderful as my dogs think i am .....

    Me neither and I used home loads and my mod is not proof marked.

    Serious question for me (but some of you may think it daft) If you home load RWS cases, turn up with them in an RWS box, how could someone tell they were not factory ammunition?
