I hadn't thought about it that way, but you're right.

I'll ad something here about the bow and arrow analogy. That doesn't apply here because the reason a bow is "tuned" for a certain range group is because of many factors. The first of which bening the arrow being "splined" or at a certain degree of rigity for the bow's weight. You don't use a different arrow for different range accuracy's. I have been shooting bows for both hunting and in competition for years and have never met even at the highest porfessional level someone who uses a different arrow for a different range.

Here's the reason, on modern compound bows, you tune the bow to an arrow that is correctly splined or has the correct stiffness for the draw weight of the bow you are shooting. This arrow will have not only a different stiffness, but usually a different diameter. When you tune a bow, you tune the rest to the exact diameter of the arrow, the center of the shot on the bow string meaning the nock point is set exactly centered on the rest, and the weight, and your release technique. Once all this is done one guy as good as you might pick up your bow and not be able to hit well because he has a different technique than you. I have even had to retune a bow when I change fletching length or type. You also have to retune after the string or cable stretches. In fact, I usually retuune every week when I shoot a lot like a couple hours a day, and when I shoot more, it might be every other day.

All this is leading up to why it is totally different than a bullet.

A bullet doesn't flex, or harmonize when it goes down the barrel or when it comes out at any range, an arrow is flexing when it is drawn, when it is released, and when it is in flight till it stabilizes later in flight. That is why you tune a bow to shoot past a certain raqnge or to a shorter range. Look at it this was, a target shooter who shoots at 20 yards tunes his bow to shoot at 20 yards if he shoots it at 15 it is off, if he shoots it at 40 it is off, he needs to hit that happy medium for good solid shots at 20 yards. I tune my bows to be accurate at 30 yards and beyond, basically what I mean is i tune them so the arrow is stable by about 25 yards and it is easy to sight it in for longer ranges because by the time the arrow crosses 25 yards it has stabilized.

Bullet balastics are totally different, the bullet is rigid and doesn't flex at any time therefore you can't compare the bullet to an arrow.

I have rifles that are extreemly accurate (when sight adjustments are made) from 50m to 1000m.

Norinco Model '97 Trench Replica

I want a pump shotgun, the standard Remington 870 (the Marine Magnum is pure sex) is the obvious choice but I've always had a thing for the old exposed hammer model '97.

Anybody have one? Is it the traditional Norinco hit or miss quality gun or do they usually work as advertised?

Sniper, well said.
As an archer, I understand the importance of spine and sighting for a fixed range.
( Spine has become a lot less critical in today's bows with flat nock travel and true centre shot risers as oppose to my traditional bows.)

I would liken this to a rifle being more accurate with a specific bullet weight and powder charge. Cartridge load characteristics would have an effect on harmonics would it not? Kinda like hitting a spring with a 2lb hammer vs a 10lb hammer.

A buddy had one and I had a Norinco 870 and both were great.

That would take 2 stamps.

1 for the SBR. 1 for the can.

We have one of those stocks for our G18. It's good for novice shooters, but totally worthless otherwise.

BTW, those are bitey. They have a lot of sharp edges.

Erma has always made good stuff. I have shot 4-5 different Erma's and they have all been tack drivers.

Question

On a complete departure...anyone have or has shot a CZ 527 Varmint? How are they?
I had a 527 in .22 Hornet years ago and it was great...I have a small critter problem on the farm i need to address and like the look of the 527 Varmint with the kevlar stock.

I don't have one, but I've read the reviews and they all sounded very positive. CZ seems to make some very accurate rifles.

Looks like a great rifle, and some good reviews. 223 would seem to me to be the way to go for sure, lots of relatively inexpensive/available ammo, good versatile varmint caliber, accurate, etc. A Hornet would be fun, but ammo is going to be tougher to come by, especially if you don't reload.

I've been having some very good luck reloading heavier bullets in the 223, 75-80 grainers.

Definitely .223 unless one wants to reload. Shoot, .22 hornet is probably $500.00 a box now.
