    When I was young I liked it. It just seem so cheesy and unfunny now.

    i still find it funny because with very few exceptions, there is no "comedy" anywhere to be found on tv these days......tacoma fd and impractical jokers are 2 exceptions

    I've wondered about that. Is the Bernoulli effect involved? From what I read there is no rise from the barrel trajectory.

    The projectile flies a parabolic arc because you are tilting the barrel up. The minute it leaves the barrel it is falling vertically

    what storch said.


    since the scope's a couple inches higher than the muzzle, we're in essence tilting the barrel up slightly to make the bullet intersect with the sight.

    I thought on it more as I fell asleep. I think you're right, and I should be zeroing at 100. from what I can find, that'll give me a flatter trajectory. it seems that with me setting zero at 25, I've got the bullet climbing hard....so it's still really climbing at 100 yards. gonna re-zero this weekend and try it.

    Yeah... when I have a semi auto that does what yours is doing and I try different ammo or ammo that worked before or.. 4 mags that used to work? I start looking at the extractor.. now a huge deal to replace but they almost always need to be adjusted. if your extractor has a spring.... I think it does.. you might replace the spring first ....like a buck or two... I would have spares of both the extractor and the spring tho...


    My Kimber started being a little bitch.. razer would have cum.... it would stovepipe a round every few mags. sometimes not even in 100 rounds.. but I hate a gun that does not functions 100%.. I bought a new extractor and spent 4 trips out shooting getting it right.


    lazs

    for some odd reason, I never thought of having spares of those....I've got a drawer full of spare parts for the ar....not a dam thing for the 92 though....

    thanks man, i'll look for those. it was cleaned last time i put it away, but it's been away for quite awhile.

    while it's odd that all 4 mags would screw up, i shoulda got the keltec out and ran them through that to see if they worked properly in that.

    the ammo was all 124grain, mostly winchester white box. i've run that through this gun before with no issues

    people that don't believe in god....shit......I dunno what to tell em. I know my mom would be dead right now if not for god…..b ut my friends call it coincidence. I call it god watching out for her.

    XM855 (62 grain) is fairly cheap in bulk and will work fine.

    I caught a ton of that shit for stupid cheap, 'cause people panicked and over-bought when the divider in chief opened his trap.


    also......I forgot to mention in op...…..ar with muzzle brake and no hearing protection is a very very bad idea. I forgot to put my ear plugs in.....my ears are still ringing.

    thanks man. if need be, I can switch out the barrel, or I can just move over to a different upper too.


    i'm pretty sure that gman and/or lazs will be along shortly with some awesome advice...…..

    thanks man. looks like 62 will be kinda ok...but heavier would be best.


    now...with that twist and too light of a bullet.....that's why i'm high at 100 yards?

    I got out to the range today. only the 2nd time this year. it sucks working so dam much.

    anyway….my beretta 92fs. the thing was stovepiping every or every other round. sometimes there would be failure to feed, sometimes failure to eject, and sometimes it would seem to jam with the loading round partially cocked otw into the chamber. it's been about a year since I've taken this one out. last time out, I cleaned and oiled it after shooting, then put it away. I noticed that when i'd rack the slide, I could see a ever so slight hesitation in the next round chambering. i'm gonna pull it apart later tonight, or tomorrow night after I finish putting my kitchen back together. it did this with every single mag. all of them were made in Italy beretta mags. when I pull it apart, is there anything in particular I should be looking for to cause this?


    second question.....my ar. the one i'm gonna be using for 3gun. it's chambered 5.56nato, 1/7 twist, 16" barrel including the muzzle brake. i'm running a burris fullfield lrs 1-4x30.

    I zeroed this thing a couple months ago at 25 yards. at 25 abnd 50 yards, she's pretty much on. when o moved over to the 100 yard lanes, I was high. like shooting a "Q" target in the neck area when holding my sight on center mass.

    now I thought with ar's that a 25yard zero would put you on the money at 100 yards also? to get the rounds onto center mass of the Q target I had to hold low. put center mass between the top of the vertical "T" and the center circle in the scope.


    so...….am I doing something wrong here? I was running 55gr .223 through it even though it's chambered for 5.56.

    by the time the Packard powered ponys came on scene, the Luftwaffe was down on good pilots. they'd started pulling their best pilots and units back to defend berlin. they were worn out, weary, or dead.

    a guy that i'd talked to flew thunderbolts, then moved up to the pony......after the war, he got the chance to fly a 190. he said that if he'd known how good that plane really was, he'd have been a lot more scared in combat. he claimed it was just as capable as the mustang, but with better guns.
