Thanks for posting this - that fellow makes the most wonderful and interesting videos. He clearly knows his stuff.
Entertaing videos one and all. The Gentleman has a YouTube site with lots of videos of him walking around in the hills shooting different rifles and in period uniforms.
Interesting stuff, but his method of approach misses out the logical stage where the weapon was fired with a pre-loaded magazine and gives the impression that magazine fire was slower... which it wasn't.Rapid fire was the last type of fire used in action, so by the time that had been completed, it was down to using the bayonet, not laboriously re-filling the magazine to do it all over again.The bean counters would suffer apoplexy if more than one order of 'ten rounds rapid' was given to a unit in a single engagement and would much prefer if one round - one kill was maintained as a general rule overall.
Bean counters have been the Bane of the grunt in every era.You need more then general substance food and a uniform that fits? Bah!
