Just a quicky for any serving SASC members. Can anybody give me the background gen on why the MOD lowered the ME (from 7000J) of firearms used by civvies on Military ranges. Whilst I understand that if someone fires a firearm at an elevation of greater that 150 Mils they may shoot outside the RDA, has that not always been the case with some ranges? Also, how will the new 3800J standard affect training with the L115 and the new L118? As a newly qualified member of civvie street it is a right kick in the balls not being able to shoot .338Lm on ranges that serving soldiers can. Cheers in advance.
