    How is accuracy ? what technique are you using to assemble the loaded round ?

    Merci.

    That's pretty neat. Velocities probably in the 1500fps range?

    Cool idea! Curious if the pellet will stay together with the faster twist rate? But none the less a fun idea.

    Lead pellets should be OK...

    Another army story...:rolleyes:

    A long time ago (1981-ish), our M220 TOW track (APC) broke down along the Northern boundary on FT Hood (the epitome of "middle of nowhere"). We ran out of C rations and water at the end of the second day of waiting for the recovery team.

    Day 3, I notice a nail protruding from the oak tree we were camped under; we had M16A1s & 5.56 blanks, so I cut the nail into 1/4" pieces and shot a cotton tail.

    Just as the bunny was cooked and ready to eat, the First Sergeant comes driving up with cold chow and warm water.:eek:

    Going into detail on my punishment would not enhance my post.:D

    I thought the instructions on C-rats said, "Open can, set on ground. Wait. When whatever eats the contents dies, eat that thing. Dispose of can safely, in fire."

    It was not uncommon to bite into a piece of a chicken's beak or foot...:confused:

    There is a reason the containers of food going into the Chow Hall are marked "For Prison and Military Use Only".

    I have a couple laying around. By the time I enlisted, the first MREs were out but those can openers are so darn handy for camping and what not. Plus they are so small, it doesn't hurt to let them lay around.

    I still have a couple cans of Ham and Eggs; used them for paper-weights back in the day...., I would send them with my RTO to summonds a subordinate or my platoon leader (like the pirates used the black spot in the movie Treasure Island). Getting a can of Ham and Eggs delivered was not a good thing.:D
