Take up the empty cartridge space, bore the chamber for a specific load, tighten the tolerances so that a Fly can't pass gas, and the Navy would still whip the Army team with the 30-06. (A really good shooting Marine might tie them on His best day, if the Sailor was having an off day.) :lol:The 7.62 version of the Garand is a Navy thing, and most were built at the Crane Lake Arsenal for the Navy match rifle team sweet piece.
Back in the years when Army could win a Football Game I might have lent a little credence to Your Jest, but it's been so long since Army was competitive it's beyond a Joke. :lol:Not even in your dreams. Now if you want to have a contest furling sails, swabbing decks, or tying knots, the Navy will win hands down. :biggrin:
