eJOURNAL #471 is out and being read by hundreds, as I type. A good reason for you to join IAA.
#471 contains my article on US National Match Rifle Ammunition. Every writer is painfully aware of Murphy’s Law 72 which states that errors will be found on the day after a manuscript goes to the printer. I made a couple. Not big ones. Fortunately for me there are probably only 5 readers who will find them but, unfortunately, those 5 are Forum members and get the eJOURNAL. So, at the risk of making even more mistakes, here are the corrections.
All changes are on Page 8.
Left Column, Second Paragraph, Third Sentence - Change to: “All later lots bore only the MATCH headstamp, LC 68 MATCH to LC 82 MATCH, and can be found loaded with either IMR 4895 or WC 846.”
Right Column, First Paragraph, second Sentence - Change to: “ In 1981 the new cartridges were designated XM852, LC 81 NM, and in 1982 adopted as 7.62 MM MATCH M852, LC 82 NM and LC 83 NM and LC 85 MATCH to LC 96 MATCH.”
Right Column, Second Paragraph, Second Sentence - Change to: “The last lot was produced in 1982 but some remaining stocks with older headstamps were re-boxed with 1982 labels and lot numbers and issued for practice, and for match use when the new M852 was not available.”
