Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

A ROSS !

Does a Ross rifle fit in here ? I just acquired a 1905 Ross Sporter - Mk2 Sporter I guess,From a friend. It has been hanging on the wall of his shop for a few years. Upon restoration I encountered one of the most fouled barrels I have encountered. I HAD to resort to a steel bore brush. 115 years or ...

Heavier Bullets

I have not tried any bullets over 150grs in my 7.5x54 loads for my 49/56. Has anyone loaded heavier bullets and had good accuracy with them ?

Re: 7.62 NATO Garand Question

Ya, I understand what you said Dale. I guess I am a bit leery that it MIGHT have that insert. I have never read of one ejected out with the case but have read it can happen. I think I will buy it as I cant see an insert with a close look with a bore light.

MAS 36 winter cleaning

I tore down my mas 36 for a detail clean and maybe a go at a better trigger. I did a light polish job on the trigger contact surfaces. Had a heck of a time getting the trigger group to receiver pin back in. I even used a pin sized punch as a slave pin and finally got it in. Re-assembled the rifle an...

.308 49/56 again

I purchaced both of my 49/56's in 2002. The first was in 7.5x54. A week later I saw one in .308 win. and bought it too. As many of you know the monkey converted .308's were 90% bummer. The 7.5 one ran perfectly. The .308 was ripping the rims off the brass from the start. And I thought the action upo...
