Re: RSAUM with Energy restrictions

Thanks Audax, however I won't be putting my hope in a potential measurement error.... At the end of the day, whether we agree with them or not, rules exsist for a reason and I'll be keeping a long way from the limit.

RSAUM with Energy restrictions

Hi all, I've had many conversations recently about shooting a SAUM where limitations on muzzle energy becomes a bit of a concern, or certainly leading to uncharged territory. I will be shooting on a range next year that has a 4500 Joule limit, meaning that a 180 Berger cannot be driven more than rou...
