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: Variation on a Theme

I've shot a Lahti, not sure if it was a M40 or M35 as my friend has since sold it. I loved shooting it as the trigger was excellent, sights simple, quite heavy and overbuilt. Though it is the most accurate service pistol that I have ever fired. At 20m, I could not believe how that pistol was groupin...

Re: Reloading for the K31

Andre-Richard, trust me, both professrh and I will believe you! In fact, I went a step further. I picked up a stock made in Kentucky by Mickey McGuinness, specifically for the K31 which specifically centres the barrel in the barrel channel of the forestock and totally free-floats the barrel. From wh...

Re: Reloading for the K31

My scoped K31 likes 168 SMK/N 140/ 45.0. Here are some 5-shot groups at 100 m. http://i.imgur.com/AkU5qln.jpg http://i.imgur.com/D4Hy5E3.jpg And here's a closer look at the second last of these groups. http://i.imgur.com/aJuJUNC.jpg Very nice, my experience has been the same using Prvi Partizan box...

Re: SVT Ammo Selection

I hear you on the PIA for cleaning after corrosive ammo. Stick to 150 grain where possible. You can also get some stainless steel aftermarket gas system components. I have had the best results with surplus corrosive ammo. The extraction isn't as violent as say the FN FAL in my opinion, you normally ...

Re: Swiss Rifles @ Gander

Is ammo available at reasonable prices? The Swiss GP11 surplus ammo available to us in North America is unmatched in my opinion. You should be able to find it for less than 60 cents per round. Now, I know for surplus ammo that sounds like a lot, however, GP11 is seriously match-grade ammo. If you r...

Re: Just put a Hakim on layaway...

Hey CB, cool pick up. I will be paying attention to your load development. This is one rifle I know nothing about other than its Swede heritage.

Re: Swiss Rifles @ Gander

Wow, that's pretty awesome. For your knowledge, the main rifles from the Swiss Army that we tend to see in North America seem to be the K31 (short action). There are K11 (long actions, short rifle) and G1911 or 1896/11 (long action, long rifle).

Maybe sheepdawg can direct you, he's a Swede connaisseur on bolt action rifles and may know sources for what you seek.

Re: Tidying up Swedish blank-ammo brass

vinegar is low concentration Acetic Acid ie 5%...I don't see the harm. I assume you are pulling bullets, dumping powder and not keeping the primer? This type of training ammo isn't available up here so I know others were buying it for the brass. These are Berdan primed cases?
