    Coooo, those Minimi's sure are popular aren't they? The proof is in the pudding there.

    If the LSW was half as good . . .
     
  3. L42A1? Heh?

    Surprising number of rounds downrange though.
     
  4. Biped

    Biped LE Book Reviewer

    Ever more popular for that 'surprise' moment. Question is, is anyone actually still using them?

    They've got the L96 down in .338 (and not many rnds fired), so I'm assuming it's the L96 7.62. Never mind, more shoit admin from the bean counters.
     
  5. Damn I should have spotted that -L118 in .338 :hangs head in shame:
     
  6. Its sad that when things are getting like that someone is still counting rounds.

    Relax RoE and let rounds fly down range I say. RoE is robust but not as robust as it should be. We should not be accounting for rifle ammunition.

    Just use it and get more.

    Bloody bean counters
     
  7. RoE = if you perceive you are in danger you may open fire.

    better than any white, yellow, green, blue, orange card ive ever had in my pocket, smock top right!
     
  8. Who has to pick up all the brass? :wink:
     
  9. L42A1 is actually the designation for the current batch of RO 7.62mm 155gn (as opposed to the old 144gn NATO standard) target/sniper ammo; just coincidence that it happens to also be the number of the old sniper rifle.....

    [​IMG]
     
  10. Is there any significance to the colour of smoke used?
     
  11. Strewth!

    Very interesting. I`m loving that Minimi expediture. Seen the Baton rounds? Them Iraqis love that rioting dont they?
     
  12. Serendipity strikes! Amazing!

    Thanks for that. ;)
