Martini 12/15 can be very accurate rifles.

I have had a number of Martini rifles, including some of the Mark models. They have all been good shooters. The only one I still own is a 12/15 which, if memory serves me, has shot at least one...

Trigger Shoes...

If the shoe fits. wear it. It fit. These Remington 500 series triggers seem to be all alike. About a quarter shape curve and I found a link to where I got it long ago.

Trigger show for trigger pull.

I have a trigger shoe on a Remington 513T and if the triggers are the same, I will put the shoe on the 521T, which may help me a bit.

Follow up on proposed ammo/barrel length test.

If the ammo used is the same, and enough shots are taken, the variable in the standard deviation should be due to barrel length.

My thinking goes along these lines: Commonly held "knowledge" is...

I am surprised at the ballistic report I just got.

I went on Federal's web site https://www.federalpremium.com/ballistics-calculator and ran the closest data I could to the RWS load. Putting in a 50 yard zero, the calculator showed zero at 25 yards...

Long for caliber bullets.

With high sectional density, a heavily constructed bullet served in Africa very well. The 6.5x55 Swedish Mauser had the 160 gr., the 7x57 had the 175 gr., the .303 British had the 215 gr. and the...
