Well today was a mighty fine day to put some rounds down range. So if you are a reloader then disreguard but if you are like me and have not started reloading yet then this is a start. I went to my local range at Briggs Tx the Astro range. It's max range is the standard 100yards. I used the 405grain Goex BP factory packed ammo. The wind was a left front quartering at around 15miles hr. the first two were cold rounds that were low to the right but the next 12 were a spread distance of within one and three quarters inch group center using a .05MOA right. The next six were high to the left and center about eight inchs off the group of 12. I am sure it is because of the dirty barrel from the bp. I have read Mr. Wolfs book on the Springfield and it holds true about either swabing it every couple of shots or just blowing through it which I do on my .58cal Enfield. So there you go my day at the range with a M84 cadet OhYEA!!!!!!!!!
