Re: Will this ammunition work with my K98k?

Nothing in Windex can “neutralize” the corrosive residue left in your bore... The salts must be dissolved and washed out.
The magic ingredient in windex is.....WATER! That and it has a bit of surfactants (soap).

Re: Canadian 8mm Mauser?

Very common and inexpensive in the early 1960s as Interarms ended up with the bulk of this ammo. 154 gr Type S lead core ball ammo with Noncorrosive Boxer primers. Originally packed in unmarked 44rd boxes.
Nice ammo and good brass for reloading.

Re: How to read a primer hit

Just realize that reading a primer for pressure to “set your max load” is downright useless and dangerous in cartridges like 30-30 Win, 30-40 Krag, .303 British and any older or milsurp round that operates in the 40,000 psi range or below. When you hit primer “pressure signs” you are above 60,000 ps...

Re: Anybody remember the Garand ammo that came up for sale several years ago on clips?

What you have there is: Remington Arms (RA & DEN) head stamped ammunition. TW ammo is a MATCH ammo for .30-06 According to google, "TW Ball rounds came from the armory of the USS Monticello LSD35 in bandoleers of 8-rnd M1 rifle clips in 1960." I don't think you have the Korean KA ammo there. Do you...

Re: Ljungman reloading

Paste wax, auto or Simonize works to ease extraction. Powdered Wax was used by the Germans in WW2 to ease extraction.

Put wax on a sponge or rag and roll the cases across...let it dry, don’t wipe off. Works on Czech LPS in a Mosin too.

Re: Are these good bullets

They are good. I really like the 175gr .308” in my Swiss rifles. You can seat them out like GP11 bullets.

At times you can get deals on blemished and over run (not blemished) Nosher bullets here:
