The Chap takes a look at a Früwirth M1872 Austrian Gendarmerie Carbine. Not a Fruhwirth, Frühwirth, Fruwirt, Frühwirt or any other wierd spelling, but Früwirth. This was a critical developmental step on the way to the Kropatschek M1886, as discussed by Othias here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZgUIV-5o6qI&feature=youtu.be

And a big hello to C&Rsenal fans who are discovering BotR on the basis of this video!

Bloke goes up a tower on the first ridge of the Jura mountains to brave the wind and discuss on a rather superficial level a number of geographic and economic factors that affected Switzerland in worlds wars 1 and 2.

The Chap takes his camera around the rather well-appointed 300m rifle club in Reichenbach

The bloke puts the kids to bed, and sits out on his front balcony for a nice tipple and a spot of catharsis - blancoing some webbing with Khaki Green 3 (KG3) blanco. But what on earth is the deal with this wierd paint stuff that the British Army put on webbing during WW1, WW2 and until the adoption of 1958 pattern? What's the deal with ordering 1908 and 1937 pattern dyed a rather sandy beige, to then paint it green? Eh? What's the ever-loving point of that?

Bloke gets to blather on about the .303 Rifle No.5, aka "Jungle Carbine", thanks to the kindness of a friend of the channel. What's the deal with this "wandering zero" thing that appears so frequently in the literature but seems to be rarely seen in real life?

Bloke takes you on a (bad) trip from a 7.62x54R cartidge, to a "correct" 8x50R Austrian cartridge case. This is by far and away the easiest (and cheapest) way to feed your unconverted M95 Mannlicher!

Also contains a discussion of the correct bore and bullet diameters, and problems related to them.

Massive thanks to Drake GmbH for the use of his photo of an original cartridge in the intro!

Le Chap vous introduit à la cartouche d'origine Chassepot Mle 1866 et la confection d'une reproduction aussi conforme que possible.

The Chap takes you through how original French Chassepot M1866 paper needlefire cartridges were made, and how he does it. Contains lashings of black powder, and better-than-a-Dryse cartridges!

A kitschy (and very corny) sketch giving news on the state of the ban / community strike from a few weeks back (it's currently the week of 18 May 2018), and a reminder that BotR is multiplatform. Once you've watched this informational vid you'll be able to find the real one for this week, ... erm... Elsewhere. We can't tell you where, since YT would kill us. You ain't seen us, right? :)

It's about the original Chassepot cartridge.

Bloke and Chap go and shoot the 2018 300m rifle Feldschiessen - The Chap with his Sturmgewehr 57 off a bipod, and The Bloke with his Schmidt-Rubin G11 - with no aids to accurate shooting! Who will win, and will The Bloke even hit the target?

Thanks to friend of the channel GR, The Bloke gets a chance to show off a couple of unusual 300m "Standard" rifles (Standardgewehre) as used in Swiss competition, one in 7.5x55 GP11, the other in 5.6mm GP90 (aka .223 Remington). Although Standardgewehr is similar to "Target Rifle" (or Palma Match), the rifles are somewhat different.

Bloke gets a rare opportunity to shoot a Swiss ZFK 55 telescopically-sighted rifle in 7.5x55 GP11. Well, it's mostly (but not exclusively) a designated marksman's rifle (aka DMR), developed right at the end of the straight-pull era and overlapping with the Stgw 57 (aka SIG 510)

When he visited Switzerland, Lindybeige had a go at mad minuting 4 different rifles. How did he do?

Since I can't put cards on Full30, you'll have to find Mike's Mad Minutes on YT or here (presuming they've been uploaded already).

Mike takes a friend's Pattern 1914 rifle for a spin as part of his Mad Minute series. Some bits of the minute are quite fast, some others are quite slow - but why?

The Chap takes us through the important points of the French MAS-36 rifle, the intended-conscript-boomstick that ended up being the state of the art frontline rifle.
