    I never said he had it happen, just that he said he will not shoot BT bullets because he read that they would not work do to the round being overbore and flatting the BT.

    The rifle is a Rem 700, Kreger barrel and Bell and carlson stock pretty simple and nice rifle. The guys not a BS artist just miss informed is all and I did not want to say he was wrong at our first meeting.

    I had a friend that's a Marine try to explain how the M16 was specifically designed for the bullets to tumble end over end through the air so that they'd be more destructive on impact.

    I suppose they do that with the 115 DTAC and a zero twist for close quarters?
