New Barrel for the M-1 Showed Up

So, inconsistencies in the Criterion Barrel was attributed to a loose ferrule that holds the handguard on. I fixed it and 1 MOA to sub-MOA is achievable now. Same day my Douglas barrel shows up. Go figure. ThorsaxeMy Channel is geared for the Hobbyist Handloader, Reloader or Bullet caster.

Loading and Shooting the M1 Garand

Loading and Shooting the M1 Garand The M1 Garand rifle is a .30 caliber, gas-operated, 8 shot clip-fed, semi-automatic rifle.
