Re: Probably a dumb question!?!?!?!?
This question was in a magazine i read a few months back and the writer (Nick Harvy) said the same thing about the force of the bullet tightning the barrel where as a left twist could loosen it. Also i've never heard of rifles being made in Australia with a left twist although from what i have read, Lithgow experimented with 2, 3, 4, and 5 land .303 SMLE barrels before and during world war 2.
Old aunts used to come up to me at weddings, poking me in the ribs & cackling "You're next". They stopped after I started doing the same thing to them at funerals.
