Took Gupta, my Ishapore 2A1 to the range and rang steel out @ 200 yards.
Always fun taking my milsurps out to stretch their legs.
Funny I asked. It likes Wolf/Tula steel cased 308. I fed it some Seller and Bellot rounds and it shot all over.Gupta! I luv it! What ammo does Gupta like best of all?
I call my 2A 'Free'cuz, well, you know....
My rifle will ding the plates at 200 also with most milsurp stuff and it makes me wonder about all the tales of woe that have always dogged these things. I've owned several over time but this current example is the only one I've ever worked up, so....I guess my trials/results got sorta slewed sideways into a happy place, eh? Well, to be fair and realistic, they are kinda like red headed step children to the majority I suppose, but ammo is available as well as components so there's that little bonus
Again, nice rifles, so we'll let the haters do what they do best, eh?
Looks like a dandy range too.
Without wishing to ignite a whole debate - you do know, don't you, that SAMMI 308 is a very different thing to military 7.62 (which your rifle was designed for)Funny I asked. It likes Wolf/Tula steel cased 308. I fed it some Seller and Bellot rounds and it shot all over.

I know. But Gupta doesnt like 762 NATO for some strange reason.Without wishing to ignite a whole debate - you do know, don't you, that SAMMI 308 is a very different thing to military 7.62 (which your rifle was designed for)
For just one example - the headspace is 13 thou (0.013") greater.
Please don't tell me the .308 is way hotter than 7.62 NATO myth is still believed by some here. That would make me very sad and cause much eye-rolling.
Many thanks, I have retained a copy of that as the question is raised on a regular basis & it is good to have documentary evidence for the well worn arguments "yes it is - no it isn't"This from the National Rifle Association of Australia is pertinent to the discussion:
