    Mountainmarty comes to town

    Glad to be here! My first experience with CombatCarry was very
    interesting. It was the thread about M-14 reliability. Great discussion!
    I have a SOCOM-16 and I like it very much. Zero problems so far.
    I've put about 850rounds through it and not one failure. I did take
    the time to break in the bore (the Shilen method). I also have
    kept up with lubrication,you only get one shot to break in a rifle
    properly. I normally keep my firearms on the dry side when I lube
    because up here in North California it can get quite dusty during the
    summer. So far the accuracy of the Socom looms around the 2"
    mark at 100yds. Presently I have been working with Hornady TAP
    110 grn. personal defense ammo. Nice low recoil still groups around
    2". I will be trying this ammo in low light conditions to see if it lives
    up to it's claims to be low flash. Talk to you later! M.M.
