Well it appears over the Xmas / New Years break there was happenings in my gun safe.
I have in my procession what I can only be described as the illegitimate offspring of a union between my lovely martini cadet rifle and some foul and unscrupulous tactical black rifle.
I have the offenders paraded against the wall.
I think this is the father of this 5 lb 5 Oz bouncing bubba carbine.
As you can clearly tell by the cases and what fodder it uses there are genetic lines or traits that stand out.
I have let it stay and have given it a light work out.
Things are looking promising with some load work ups from 115 Lee soup can to 174 grn flat points.
It has a fast 1:8 twist 30 cal barrel and a 357 mag case.
holds 24 grains water to the top. 70 thou shorter than a 300 blkout.
Think it’s a 7.62x33R so it can be shot with 34k psi loads.
Being nice and short and doesn’t get in the way and handles well.
I did have a very small forend on it and it weigh a lot less but swapped over because I need more length for stability for longer shots and couldn’t hold off the wobble.
May even make it into the lettuce protector category.
Hoping to use it for the bunny shoot.
May need a heavy bullet for it but unsure what at this stage.
Hopefully do all I need as a walking /strolling /camp pot gun
