Re: Monumental Ignorance

Very well written. Lee was a great man, and many today who owe him a debt of gratitude are trying to deatroy his legacy. How self centered and deliberately ignorant can the protesters possibly be?

Re: LEVERGUN WEEKEND

I understand. The 32-20, being a lead bullet originally, was measured from land to land. Now I understand how a jacketed bullet would give good accuracy with a smaller diameter bullet. I know little about the 32-20, and now know about twice as much as I did a few minutes ago.

Re: LEVERGUN WEEKEND

From what I can find out, the bullets for an AK are nominally.311 and a 32-20 is supposed to be .3215. That doesn't sound like it would be good for accuracy. Am I failing to understand something? Does the WW296/H110 cause the bullet to bump up in diameter enough to engage the rifling?
