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.

Awesome info !!! Thanks for that.
I love Swiss rifles and can't see myself not buying more. I also reload for my 7.55x54.5 M1889.
She's a shooter too.

GP11 reloaded brass.

After a three year search I finally got a hold of some Berdan primers. Saving approximately 1100 cases over that time from my son and I. Used RL17 powder and of course Tulammo berdan primers. Fired from one of my K-11's I was pleased with the accuracy. For comparison I used PPU and milsurp GP-11. Ha...

GP11 bulging brass

Thanks for responding ammolab. After disassembly and measurement the bullets are in spec. I did find one issue though. I checked ID of some empty prepped cases and they vary a lot. That would explain the neck tension variance I was feeling when seating the bullets. The ID's were all over the place. ...

GP11 bulging brass

This happened to several cases upon seating bullets. Never saw this before during bullet seating. Using full length resized GP11 brass. (once fired) The bullets are SMK 175gr. All cases were trimmed to correct length and chamfered in and out. I did notice a lot of variance in neck tension when seati...

Nice. I started with Lee Loaders. Good for taking your time and getting used to the process.

Polish M44

Picked this up for a nice price. Appears to be unfired. Looks like the previous owner sanded the stock. Only bummer. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20180831/5513bc2f6f62ed58f683d66a926d9e18.jpg https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20180831/f69d3ffd62e1df4f6450ef0025b2113c.jpg https://uploads.tapatalk-...

Re: powder for 7.5 swiss and 30-06

I have used 4064 and BL-C(2) for all my swiss rifles with good results. However the edge goes to 4064.

Latest aquisition

Picked up a Schmidt Rubin 1889 the other day. Manuf date 1892. Every numbered part is matching. Looking forward to making some 7.5x54.5 rounds for this guy.

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

I use 40 gr of Varget with a 208 gr PPU bullet. I apply a light crimp also. Has much lighter recoil than commercial rounds. Accuracy is good.

Re: Lee FCD for 8x56R at MidwayUSA

I had given up looking for a Lee FCD for my Steyr M95 (Lee doesn't offer them on their website) . . . and then I got a marketing email from Midway informing me that they had said die on sale for about $12. Yes, I jumped on it. Shipping was $4.99 to my location. Thought inquiring minds might want to...

New (old) Steyr M95

Picked up a nice M95 at a reasonable price. Cleaned up great and took it to the range today. Needed slight windage adjustment and shot fine. Man she kicks too !! Reminds me of my VEPR.

Re: 175 gr Nosler RDF bullets

Still using the Berger 175 VLD with great results. These bullets are rumored to be close to the GP11 bullets in performance.Image
