Re: brass life and componenet changing for accuracy
Thanks for the heads up on the article, LD. I'm going to try to find this issue this weekend and read it.
I am a bit surprised by the results of the brass failure test. I've been using Remington brass for a long time, though by no means no exclusively, and have found it to have very good accuracy potential. I didn't think that case life was that good however; never really tested it like this.
The conclusions on changing components do fall right in line with my experience; bullets make the biggest difference, followed by powder and then either primers or case.
Let not the rifles of good and free men be reforged into plowshares, but may they rest in a place of honor; ready, well oiled and God willing unused. For if the price of peace becomes licking the boots of tyrants, then "To Arms!" I say, and may the fortunes of war smile upon patriots.
