Welcome to the site where the owners and members have had it with playing "nice" and being "inclusive" and "tolerant" of points of view that are destroying the fabric of what made this country great. The members here are sick and tired of politicians of all parties lying, deceiving, stealing, and pretending they are doing it all for the good of the country while selling out to special interests who have the set goal of destroying this country. We have had enough of career politicians who use their office only for personal gain, and who refuse to listen to the people who put them in office. The membership is no longer part of the silent majority who play nice and get along while getting screwed by anyone with a loud voice and an agenda. We will no longer allow anyone to piss down our back and tell us it's raining. And we like guns too.

all it takes for the 42 to go from 8mm to 7.62 is change top cover
feed tray barrel bushing barrel and blast cone can be done in about 5min
and yes in 7.62 it becomes a mg3

Yep, the powder in all that Santa Barbara is not good. It would not even work in the FAL with the gas adjusted all the way up or down.

Had some Aussie that ran like a raped ape in the same rifle.

I'm going to get a collet puller and pull down all the Santa Barbara, then recharge it with some British surplus Radway Green powder (same as IMR 4895). Not having any issues with the primers, so I'll dump the old powder in the garden, recharge, re-seat, then crimp with my Lee factory crimp die.

I'm fixing to start staging ammo cans @ the front door for my annual happy time @ my happy place. Hopefully every thing I take goes bang & all my toys run fine.

4 days 3 nights all inclusive room, 3 meals per day, open bar @ night with premium booze & range. Even better my buddy who I do the seasonal beer garden for has bought once again as a bonus.
