As I understand it, modern bench resters do not routinely weigh charges. They set their powder measures to through the charge weight they have worked-up to and then use their measures to throw a...

What has that got to do with the miss-use of the word, "confirmed"?

Almost too ridiculous of a post which to respond. Nevertheless, how you can construe a post about the superfluous and incorrect use of the word "confirmed" as a condemnation of military snipers...

No, what I was suggesting is that body counts (and perhaps sniper kills were exaggerated and there was no conformation process).

Do all shots at 700 yards hit a head or chest, or do some hit an...

Are you referring to the current army or what was in Vietnam? Certainly there was no such system then. The "Scout-sniper" system is newer than that.

The central issue is not about record keeping...

The first was a Series 70 Government with that collet barrel busing. It was a jam-o-matic out of the box. In those days, I knew nothing about 1911's and had no...
