Picked up 1000 rounds of Saltech M80 from PSA. It's Swiss surplus so I expected better consistency than lake city M80, but does anyone have experience with Saltech. I'll be using it to feed a Mossberg MVP and a Tavor 7

Anons aren't here but when they were, we called them SaltChads. They loved their Salt and finely crafted Swiss ammo. It's good ammo, it won't explode on you like Turkish ammo, if that's what you're worried about.

>The loss of an M1 tank would be significant for practical and propaganda reasons, especially if it falls into Russian hands.
>One of Ukraine's U.S.-supplied M1 Abrams tanks looks to have sustained significant damage and appears to be the first loss of one of these prized tanks in combat in the country. Evidence that Ukrainian Abrams tanks had finally entered the fight only recently began to emerge. This also comes amid concerns about the ability of Ukraine's armed forces to sustain these tanks in the long term.
>Pictures and video appearing to show a Ukrainain Abrams on fire began circulating on social media earlier today. At the time of the incident, the tank was said to have been operating near the town of Avdiivka in Ukraine's eastern Donetsk region, which Russian forces recently seized control of after months of heavy fighting. U.S. officials confirmed last September that 31 M1 Abrams tanks had been delivered to Ukraine's armed forces.

Seems like the handheld LEP market isn’t too mature just yet. Feels like we’re in comparable times to the 2012 LED flashlight market. It is very cool technology but isn’t established enough to replace LED just yet. I do also think LEP and LED will have to co-exist for some time due to their rather varying use-cases due to the extremely narrow beam of the LEP and comparatively not-super-high lumens output. I’m >>61022137 and >>61019303 and I’m pretty much at this point only interested to see what it can do comparatively to LED, before being able to form an opinion if it has any place for a prepared individual as a “must own” piece of equipment. So it doesn’t have the same standard to quality at this point as only a technology demonstrator.

Bought a Kalashnikov USA KR-103 a few months ago. The rifle looks amazing ans is really fun to shoot but something really bothers me : I noticed that I was shooting consistently to the right. I put it on me at first because it's my first AK, but after a few hundred rounds and no improvement I decided to check the sights. Turns out the factory adjustment was off and I adjusted the front sight to the right like pic attached. Now the rifle shoots straight but having a misaligned front sight really pisses me off on a "premium" AK like this. Is this normal ? Should I RMA the rifle considering I don't live in the US and it would probably take months to get it fixed or replaced.

We almost saw knights in modern combat. Samurai were remarkably similar to knights in terms of their social status and military roles. Their weaponry in the Boshin War and the Satsuma rebellion was essentially the most modern rifles, muskets or carbines they could get their hands on with typical samurai garb.

Nucking_futs_Yuri is trying to do just that, but with the M79. It will take a while to mass produce

Why can't all ammo be produced as a fin stabilized sabot round? If it were you could fire everything from a 12ga smooth bore. You could own one gun and use it for everything. Just carry different rounds for different seasons.

saboted projectiles are not going to be meaningfully more accurate than slugs nor do they have suitable terminal effects for game. Darts are only better than contemporaries for super AP and that's only if they're fired out of guns with high chamber pressure (ie not shotguns). there's no reason to use them otherwise

I had an idea for a 12ga plastic slug that's hollowed out and filled with some kind of explosive filler (either high or low, preferably low for my intended application) and an impact fuze on the end. The idea being that the projectile will explode very early upon making contact with anything, creating a very loud and scary but reletively harmless explosion near or on a target that will scare them off. I've been thinking about making a better alternative to dangerous game slugs, something to harmlessly scare them away so that nature enthusiasts like myself can observe them without being either myself or then in danger
>>
>>61035795
i think blanks would pretty much serve your purpose. if it's close enough to be dangerous, it's probably close enough to be scared of by the loud bang. if it isn't scared by that, light pain and a bigger surprise would probably only make things worse

That looks like a beeg fire captain. Considering it was most certainly producing steel for war effort, how fucked are Russian weapon production capabilities? Also do we know the damage assessment?

What you are doing is the same reason that I have almost 30k rounds of 5.45. I kept finding private parties selling 5.45 for cheaper than the current online retail costs of any other centerfire rifle cartridge. Everyone kept saying “it’s a dead caliber” so I prioritized buying it.

warrior gear is a great canadian brand. I've used one of their molle 2-piece belts for years now, its been amazing for the price of <150$
max load I've had on it would be: 60 rounds of 556, 57 of 9mm, pistol, dump pouch, knife, cat tq, ifak. no sagging.
This is too much weight for an unpadded belt though, it digs into your hips like fucking crazy. if you carry this much, buy a 1-piece, padded, war belt instead

srs tactical, 911 supply, ds tac, sdtac = our best sources for american imports. hsgi makes the best padded belts

They never were in, it was mostly used by military (most of whom never shot in combat) , and military larpers .

Police who shoot people for a living with pistol as primary, preffered double action revolvers in 9mm caliber (.38 special, .357 magnum) and then in 1980's switched to wonder nines , which were 9mm (9x19) double action semis with double stack magazines.

TLDR : born wrong caliber, die wrong caliber.

During the entire Russian invasion of Ukraine, has there been a single case of several planes from either side, flying in formation, even once? Closest one I can think of is that Russian helicopter raid over the lake during the early days, but much like all the footage of tanks rolling out into the open by themselves, the planes seem to also fly alone or very rarely, in pairs at most.
What's the reason for this?
I read that it's caused by a lack of training and flight hours on the Russian side at least.
