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.

Re: Spring/Summer 50 yard Milsurp Shoot.

Hello Everyone,

I have been testing cast loads with my DWM made Mauser Argentino 1891. I am very happy with the load.

I used the 400 m sight setting and used a center hold for this one. The Lyman 314299 GC bullet is a good one. I will play with this load at 100 and 200.

Re: Argentine 1891 Long Rifle

Vandle,

Your new rifle inspired me to shoot my old Mauser Argentino. My old rifle seems to like .313 diameter cast bullets.

Re: Quite in here

Northern NY is strange. The most expensive range here only costs $30 per year.

I enjoy summer shooting. It is slightly better than arctic shooting.

Re: Quite in here

Anyone doing any target shoots?

I have been training up for the National Matches at least the 200 yard bolt gun shoot portion...


I sold a couple of guns to buy a nice Krag. An old lady had a 1899 made Krag for sale.

Re: Spring/Summer 50 yard Milsurp Shoot.

Nice shooting with the 7x57 Prof!

I had some fun developing a cast load for my Danzig 1895 Gew 1888 this past weekend:

Using a trim die to form 8x57 from 30-06 has been very helpful. I used the Lee 8mm Maximum mold and some vectan powder for this.

Re: Curiouser & curiouser, said Alice! (FAL mags)

Cool! It makes a lot of sense...the Indians acquired the FAL in an interesting manner. They reverse engineered it after trials, accusing FN of bribery (and thus backing out of the order) and threw in British features in the revised design. R. Blake Stevens' book on the FAL has the full story. There ...

Re: Pet loads for 8x56R and m95/30 "stutzen"?

My steyrs seem to like cast bullets at short range.

225 grain bullet sized .331, no 2 lyman alloy

13 grains Vectan BA 9

Privi Partizan brass, S&B primer

I have also had luck with the same bullet using 24 grains of AA 5744 powder.

Re: Article on royal family problems

I would honestly take the royals in this article over most of the Critters that we have in government now.

They generally left the common folk alone....
