CMP Western Games: M1 Garand and Vintage Military Sniper Rifle Team Match

There’s a lot more to competitive shooting than sending rounds downrange. There are the private aspects we don’t see—building guns, loading our own ammo, dry firing in our living rooms, selecting gear—and for most of us, focusing on our shooting means shutting out all distractions and all other shooters, and maybe putting on our game face.

Thus, experimentation with primers is often done at shorter ranges, relying heavily on chronograph results to help select primer brands or lots by velocity uniformity and accuracy testing.
