Re: IOF 315 rifle and cartridge

I think the .315 rifle bridges the gap between a 12 bore slug and a .30-06 iof rifle.... I think the low velocity and heavy bullet has its advantages like ........the lesser velocity means more barrel life it has less recoil.... the cost of the rifle is far less than the iof 30-06 .......a good gunsmith can rectify the problems in a newly purchased rifle...Jr. wrote: ↑Fri Mar 29, 2019 4:45 pmI would not recommend buying the IOF .315 Rifle.
The Quality is not the same as it was 7+ years earlier.
It is an excellent Cartridge/Bore.
There are however issues with the IOF Rifle (Bolt, Feeding, Ejection, Magazine etc.).
The famous Lakhpat Singh Rawat has shot numerous Man Eaters with this Rifle.
He has killed 51 Man-Eaters (49 Leopards and 2 Tigers).
Even most Gun Shops have stopped selling the IOF 315 Rifle, as there were frequent complaints from the Buyers.
I personally love the .315 Cartridge, it is heavier than the 30.06, but has lesser Velocity (Ft./S) and Energy (Ft. Lbf).
