Not sure it made much diff, still whistle thru lol


I did the same.i used to put a small hollow point in as well. Norma sporting ammo was really expensive. I bought my seriously accurate m38 Husky for $59 from A mart all sports south of Brisbane in 1986

Well, wouldn't trust those disks, because they are still available to pick your own out of a bucket of them at large gun shows here in the USA :lol:

SARCO is probably sitting on thousands or more of those disks, easily.

And the disc is attached to the stock, which may not be attached to the same barrelled action it was when the test was done.
You can also buy blank discs and put your own measurements on them.

Even if the disc was 100% original it means little as it only refers to the condition during inspection in service by the last Swedish Military Armourer and who knows how long ago that was or what has happened in the intervening years or decades. Inspect, but don't be over critical as I have seen some bores that look quite ordinary but still shot very well, Cheers
