Re: Browning BAR

Thanks for all the great replies! I have been shooting off of bipods will this affect it. I am going to try the washer to see if this helps. My wife has an elk hunt in two weeks and I have just been scratching my head at this. I have tried a bunch of stuff to "cure" this problem. What gets me is it used to shot 1 to 1 1/4 inch groups all day with my reloads. I have desembed it and put it back together to fix some stuff. I just dont know.

This alters the clearance of the forend to barrel and rails. It usually does the trick. You may have to play about with washer size and nut tension etc to get it just right.
That's a great tip.

That sucks. The Bill of Rights of 1690-91(which applies in all Commonwealth countries) clearly states no fine or imprisonment except upon conviction. Obviously all the law abiding Oz citizens were treated like convicted criminals, and punished for the very suspicious Port Arthur massacre.

Seizing your lawfully acquired property is theft, no matter what the excuse, and no matter what financial compensation, if any.
