With thanks to Guy & Lesley Field of The Yeaveley Estate https://yeaveley-estate.co.uk/ BotR and The Wirksworth Gunroom bring you the definitive, and quite obvious, answer to this strangely contentious conundrum. Simply by shooting the same course of fire in three different manners, with .303 Lee-Enfield No.4 rifles:
1. 10 round mag loaded to capacity at the start.
2. 5 round mag loaded at the start.
3. 10 round mag loaded to 5 rounds at the start.
How did it turn out? And did anyone get a rimjam (new PPU Prvi Partizan ammo, loaded down-up-down-up-down in chargers) that couldn’t be solved by just slamming the bolt with a bit of élan? (Spoiler: no)

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.
