According to them:
You can fire 7.62 in a .308.
Here's something that will save my keyboard:
To put it simply, you aren't going to hit much using a 7.62mm in a .308 sniper rifle.
There's also a guy selling a 1945 German Mauser that was re-barreled for 7.62 NATO in the 1950's by Israel, he wants $325. A bit out of budget for me at the moment but it's an interesting piece.
It won't be the optimal ammo for shooting .5 MOA, but in the situation of being forced to pick up the enemies ammo. I think you'd make do just fine for average range.
Standard issue 7.62 isn't going to be the best for accuracy, but I don't see a problem with accuracy because of the .308 chamber.
Might have to account for more bullet drop though.
Remember, the bullet itself is wider than the barrel originally. So a 5.56mm is actually roughly ~5.70mm at the beginning, with it narrowing down to ~5.66/69mm for the grooves and 5.56mm for the rest of the barrel; this actually lengthens the bullet slightly.
When you try and fire a bullet that does not expand correctly AND is using less powder, well then you have a bullet that is not only going to drop like hell, but also be blown around. At this point you are lucky to get 50m-100m on average in such a situation.
Think of the situation between using the M855A1 (SS109 green tip) 5.56mm in a non-stabilized M16A1 barrel (1:12 twist rate), all that happens is that the bullet goes spinning off somewhere and sometimes just drops right off.
So can you fire? Most probably to a yes.
Should you? Probably not.
Although I've seen this for a while, just wonderd what your thoughts are on the KRISS. SBR? Is the semi version just a glorified handgun?
I wouldn't buy it. The whole point to the recoil system is reduction/elimintaion of muzzle climb during rapid/full auto fire, which is null for us civilians. Glorified handgun.
It's refreshing to see an new action in a firearm, we've kind of hit a mechanical limit these days. All "new" rifles have the same three actions:
Stoner DI - AR15, etc
Kalashnikov piston - AK47, etc
Stoner piston - SCAR, ACR, SA80, G36, etc
So the KRISS is a breath of fresh air in a crowded market. Mind you the idea they have dates from around the second world war (I forget the gun that had it), but at least they've done it properly. But like FULMTL said, a regular civilian has no need to full-auto .45, neither does the military by the way. The KRISS is a pure SWAT weapon.
Thought this seemed awesome, and a bit "What the hell?"
You missed off the nerf gun :wanker: Still not quite- crossbows are still legal and are the closest to a real gun in terms of lethality you can have without owning a shotgun silence . I have my self a re-curve bow for field archery
Since we're bringing airguns into the thread:
Weihrauch HW100TK. Mine's a .177 FAC version (25J muzzle energy)
Weihrauch HW45 STL
All three of these are more precise than any shooter is. If clamped down, we're talking "single hole" groups. Quite good training-tools.
Nice competition-grade airguns!
They do the job as a home-training-tool (with the proper backstop, of course), something a 9x19 (or .22LR) wouldn't really do.
Here's a new one. This a polymer lower for my dad's AR he's building.
Here's my quick review if you're interested:
I just finished my poor man's DMR build yesterday.
Here's my build write-up: http://www.mdshooters.com/showthread.php?t=65693
I leave for the Air Force tomorrow.
that looks pretty sweet. what rounds are you feeding that thing?
5.45x39 Russian 80s surplus
Also my dad's finished AR build:
Plum Crazy Polymer Lower
Palmetto State Armory Upper 16" Stainless 1/8 twist heavy barrel chambered in .223 Wylde.
Just bought this today. Haven't gotten to fire it yet though. Will take care of that wednesday with 500rds ready to be put through it. I'm pretty damn excited. Been a dream gun to own and now I got it.
I just purchase a Beretta 92FS Inox. It is very nice
