Has anyone shot their bullets backwards to acheive full
caliber metplat? I have created some 308win loads
that are subsonic. I still need to test them on live game.
I found info on this subject from another site. The site
stated that the German snipers in WWI did so. If you
have treid this, what results have you had.

Thanks

blancoalex,

I have not tried this except as a way of scraping the lead out of a badly leaded gun barrel. Used guns are ripe candidates for this.

In the usage you reference it shows how soldiers will find ways around treatys or conventions that they think hamper their ability to do their job.

"But it is a Full Metal Jacket just like the convention requires"

I can't imagine a sniper letting the enemy get so close that this would be accurate though... who knows?
