Raising The Game
By The Ole Hedge Creeper
You know my Pappy (Grandfather) always said every day is a school day, you could live to be 101 years old and still not have enough knowledge, of course he was right too, just recently I was at my rifle range when the club secretary and indeed the owner posed a question to me, they were having miss fires in several of their guns, using different Eley ammunition, when I say miss fires, its what many of us call a dead man's click, the strike on the case was well good as was pointed out to me, I contacted Eley the very next morning, Michael Atkinson (brand manager) came straight back to with the answer, by golly he was right it was not the ammunition at all it was the guns, I wont bore you with the technical side of this but lets just say a properly cleaned and serviced gun was what was needed, if you would like to know more about this or are finding you are having the same problem, drop Eley a line through their website or by clicking on the picture link of me above, I will also add a button for their website to the bottom of this article too so its easy for you to drop them a line, I am told they make a bullet casing with a thicker rim for just occasions too, I am a Hunter/Countryman and Professional Pest Controller, I don't do much target shooting but I am told it can be a common thing with target rifles that are poorly serviced or indeed not cleaned correctly, like I say every day is a school day.
Until next time everyone please do as you are told, stay home, stay safe and stay well.
