I like mine except for slinging cases to the next county, but I was able to make a Caldwell brass catcher for my Ar15 work with it.
It does sling brass. I put down a 19 x 19 tarp and had to move it twice to find the sweet spot.
It’s an optical illusion. Your seeing the shadow cast by the charging rod lever. That scope mount locks into a groove and screws down. I’m not certain, but it may be proprietary to the Bula? Not sure.
Thats strange! Mine will dump them in an area less than a sq yard unless I'm moving around!
Nice looking rifle!
It's an Operating rod, guys. AKA an op rod. Similar to an M-1s. Nice looking gun.
When I was on an Army hi power rifle team we used M-14s with bedded wood stocks.
Okay, I see the shadow now. Your mount must screw into the receiver above the breech; looks sleeker than the mount on mine. I've got a SA M1A Loaded, and most of the mounts I've seen have a screw and plate on the left side that mounts to the receiver there, and to the magazine clip dovetail at back, with a set screw that takes tension over the breech. Mine is a Fulton Brookfield type DMR mount. It also permits use of the iron sights to about 250 yards. I'd like to find a set of rings a little lower than what I have, but they're harder to find for a 35mm tube.
178 grain are the heaviest bullet recommended for the M14 action, and work best for longer range past about 600 yards due to the better BC over the lighter 168 grain, but the 168's work great to 800 yards or more, they just lose energy a bit faster past that. You get a 150-175 fps more muzzle velocity with the 168's.
Frogfurr, you're going to enjoy this rifle. I love the sound of the action cycling, it is very distinctive with the roller bolt. I've shot mine out to 800 yards so far (with a scope, of course) and it does really well. Here's a pic I took of my group on a 600 yard steel plate when a friend and I went to a 1000 yard range back in May. He was shooting a 7mm Magnum and I had my M1A and my AR Grendel, but I had messed up my zero on the Grendel last time I shot long range with it so I put it up pretty quick. The gong to the left is a 8"
That’s not a rifle problem. That’s a personal issue. An experienced marksman has no problem hitting 300yds & further with an AR.
