    Sweet! Jeff does fantastic work.

    Shortly before World War I, the German Kaiser was the guest of the Swiss government to observe military maneuvers. The Kaiser asked a Swiss militiaman: "You are 500,000 and you shoot well, but if we attack with 1,000,000 men what will you do?" The soldier replied: "We will shoot twice and go home."

      I've only put about 7-8 rounds thru it at Jeff's place to dial in the scope. I'll wring it out at the Rendezvous next weekend. 26-inch Schneider USMC overrun barrel on it reamed with Jeff's M118LR reamer.

            Is that a polygonal rifled barrel?

              No, Shep, just the standard USMC M40 barrel, 1-12" twist. Both Jeff and Flea have the same barrel on their rifles. Schneider sells these as USMC "Overrun" barrels.

                  Shep, if polygonal rifling is used in the USMC M40 series barrels then that's what mine is. I researched it when Jeff ordered it almost 2 years ago and have forgotten the specs now.

                    I don't believe the USMC-contract barrel is polygonal rifled, it's listed as a 6-groove. On their website, they list the M40 barrels and the polygonal rifled barrels separately.

                      Shot this rifle at Camp Butner today at a 1000yd practice session; big regional match there this weekend.
                      I'd only put 7-8 rounds thru it at Jeff Walker's place when I picked it up to get a 100yd zero.
                      I set the scope at 35moa elevation and 1moa left wind.
                      My first hit was a 6 at 5 o'clock. I went up to 36.5moa elevation and 1.5moa left wind. Second hit was an X. I shot 9 rounds total, the rest were 9's and 8's and a 7. I wasn't really trying hard, just wanted to get some solid 1000yd dope.
                      Since I haven't chronoed this ammo, I did an extrapolation using JBM calculator, and determined it's running about 2700fps.
                      I'm happy with this rifle!
                      The match this weekend is 2x1000 yds on both Saturday and Sunday; sorta boring. I'll go shoot the Sunday match just to get some more 1000yd experience.
