So, like, rimmed ammo is a massive systematic problem, and weren’t the British so stupid for keeping it around for so long, eh? I mean, it’s bound to inevitably cause rimjams like every time you reload cos a rim will catch behind another rim, how massively stupid is that? Cos Mosin-Nagants with iffy interruptors do that, and they’re with rimmed ammo, so that must be the same with Lee-Enfields too, right? Oh, and apparently Americans call it “rimlock”…
What, you mean that actually that’s not an issue in any serious manner? That they dealt with it with engineering? Who knew?
Explains rather why the British army never bothered to get rid of .303 post-ww1 and waited for the adoption of a self-loader post WW2.
Switzerland’s most popular native-English-language guns & shooting channel! Probably. Maybe. I guess. A somewhat off-the-wall and tongue-in-cheek look at firearms, military history and shooting, and a jolly good tilt at the windmills of fuddlore to go with it. And the odd off-topic vid about Switzerland, or whatever happens to take our fancy. We normally launch “in-series” vids on a Friday (early launch on a Wednesday via Patreon and the FB page https://www.facebook.com/Blokeontherange/ ), out-of-series vids launch precisely… whenever.
