Re: Dutch Beaumont Cleaning Rod pictures??

I contacted the older gentleman in Canada who used to make several varieties of cLeaning rods. He is no longer in business but had three Beaumont rods left. I got all three.

Re: Old west Bullet mould, for Vetterli??

I have alox so that is doable.

Am I correct in that with a heeled bullet such as this you would use as dropped from the mould and not sized?

What lube would you use on the exposed lube rings?

Old west Bullet mould, for Vetterli??

Found the 10.4 mm Swiss Vetterli rifle bullet mould blocks at Old West Bullet Moulds. Anyone use these? External lube rings with heeled design for black powder load I’m assuming. Am I correct that these would not be appropriate for smokeless powder loads? 39A3B2A8-014E-4557-A825-802C043497D5.png Dou...

Re: vetterli carbine at range.

I use a LabRadar. I also load for 43 Beaumont at the suggested smokeless load of 30 grains IMR-4198. Actually they say 31 grains but I dropped it back a bit and get better accuracy. I might try using that next. I’ve used unique. It works. Just don’t like dealing with such small fill volume. I also h...

Re: vetterli carbine at range.

Wished there was a good way to calculate chamber pressures (without a headache of course) based on given cartridge and velocity information.

Re: vetterli carbine at range.

All I’ve tried so far is the 2400. Anybody try other powders that give good groups? The 20 grains of 2400 show no pressure signs and are giving 1300 FPS. I’m thinking I can increase the load for more velocity which would help in hunting deer. Thing the metallurgy of the 69/71 is strong enough for st...

vetterli carbine at range.

Loaded some up and went to the range. Lee C430-310RF w/ GC 19,19.5 and 20 grains of 2400 20 grains did the best, but hit about 15” high. Front site is in a dove tail slot so taller site should help. Any suggestion what site to use or where to get. I’ll google it. 2861B95A-1A38-43FF-95C3-1D7D77D1D177...

Re: My new Beaumont Vitali.

Picture post 4 Taken on my deck as I shot some loads I had laying around. My cast 400 grain with 28.5 grains IMR4198. Shooting 50 yards they grouped 3”. I expect to do better as I work up. My first Beaumont grouped 1-3/4” at 100 yards with 30 grains. The out door lighting makes the while metal and w...

My new Beaumont Vitali.

Here is my latest Beaumont. The first series of pics with red background are the ones provided by the auction house. The ones after are of the day it arrived. I also pictured it alongside my first Beaumont I got a year ago. I refinished the stock since it had already been sanded down and finished wi...

Re: Dutch Beaumont Cleaning Rod pictures??

I sure appreciate such in-depth explanation about these rods. I will most likely just get the cheap reproduction to act as a stand in until I can get my hands on a real one. I think it would be appropriate to finish this rifle with an original rod as I believe I got myself a really nice “correct” Be...

I checked this one out. Any idea of the difference in quality of these $45 rods compared to the $85 rods?
