    I'm still not sure what to think about a "po' man's bore gage" someone sent from a gun forum. Say's it's supposed to tell me how thoroughly shot-out the barrel is. What is it? An inert 30-06 round. Stick the bullet in the barrel, and how far it goes is how worn the rifling is. I'm scepetical, but the "Magic Ouija Bullet" says I have a little life yet. The only REAL test to to train myself up enough to hold a good group, and see if the rifle can keep up. Still, many folks swear by it, so... we'll see. I really shouldn't knock it, it was sent as a kind gesture. I really do appreciate it, too. I'll keep it, might want to use it again.

    MOA is minute of angle, general term alot use when discussing rifle accuracy....roughly 1 inch at 100 yards....2inches at 200 yards ect....if your rifle shoots a 1 inch group at 100 yards its a 1MOA rifle, half inch, its a 1/2MOA rifle ect....minute of milk jug just means yah dont have a problem hitting a milk jug at 100 yards, kind of a ba$tardization of the term....unlike most think this is more than good enough for a short range(out to 100 yards) hunting rifle or a personal defence gun like your carbine.....

    I saw an excellent video on MOA the other day. Here, I'll share for anyone lurking:

    I just never heard the milk jug one yet. I guess I'll be hearing loads more over the coming years. Heh!

    i use it cause a milk jug is roughly the size of the vital area of a speed goat or small deer, if i can hit a gallon jug every time from field positions im ready to hunt.....i get bored shooting paper and prefer reactive targets and gallon jugs filled with water are cheap a standard 8 inch paper plate is another good improvised target for the same target size.....though some are obsesed with shooting small groups on paper it has lil to do with most hunting....

    I don't think I can hunt much with mine. Only good to about 200 if you push it, and the round is so small.

    Can you?

    I'm fine punching holes in innocent bits of paper. I gotta get up to speed, and then I'll see where I want to go with it.
