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.

Swiss K-31 vit n150?

Looked at the Vit site, they do have, listed load data just, wondering if anyone has used it with any success in the K-31.

Re: K31 help please

What is the deal about reloading in Ireland?

Is it those bloody Brits?

I'd, come up with away to use a drill press or something like to seat the bullets deeper in your loaded ammo.

Re: Any of you guys hunt with you K31?

The BadAce Mount, has worked great so far, for me. Only have about 50-100 rounds shot since install, it has held up through zeroing and confirming zero. Have a hunting load with Sierra 165GK shoot MOA, and target load with Sierra 168 Smk shoot sub MOA @ 100 yrds.

Can't believe anybody else is up this time of the night. After Deer season I will work something up with Varget. I use it in several other cartridges.

Any of you guys hunt with you K31?

I, am thinking I will use my K31 to take a deer this year. The only .308 bullets I have on hand to load are Sierra 150 PH and 165 GK. Anyone have experience loading either of the above for deer hunting?

Review Badace scope base for K31

Finally, got to shoot the K31 with the Badace scope base. We are having and unusual cool spell for July so I thought I would go the the range and test this scope and loads.

Re: 7.55 swiss 175smk?

Thanks again, I'll try that with other bullets I want to test. I, shot, 2, 5 shot groups today of the 20 loaded earlier, shot a 3" and 2.5" group. Then I screwed the pooch, tried the St.Marie accurizing trick of balancing or optimizing the tang screw torque. Next ten shots barely stayed on a sheet o...

Re: 7.55 swiss 175smk?

Ammolab, thanks for the input. Without the proper modified case, I ran a Swiss case through the expander of a 7.62X39 to open the mouth up and allow a bullet to move with some resistance. Chambered this modified and smoked cartridge and took measurements till the faintest rifling marks on bullet. Lo...

Re: 7.55 swiss 175smk?

So, shot 3" group at 100yrds. I have not shot Iron Sights in a loooong time so I am happy with the Group. Tried some 168smk's 4' group the sun was going down. I'll shoot some more tomorrow.
