Re: Swedish target rifle

Awesome! I’m surprised however, on the real early date on the receiver ... How so? Yea, no surprise to me. The first 10000 were produced from recycled m/94 receivers and bolts ....such as this: Well see ... ? See bold above, I wasn't aware of that and just had expected later dated receivers, that's...

Loading the Italian Vetterli-Vitali 10.4x47R round

Well, here’s my toy, my $200 pickup after selling the Gras bayonet that came with it, see link to the rofle here: http://www.surplusrifleforum.com/viewtopic.php?f=14&t=3843#p25509 CASE - Now to loading the round. It’s like a ‘bulky 30-30’ on steroids, where the rim is 5/8” or so in diameter and take...

Re: M44 Mosin crazy prices???

Wow, crazy prices for the M44; one arm that I never took too.

I recall passing up my 1st 91/30 @ $75 and when I finally got a nice one many years later it was 3X that price!

Re: Berry 311 123gr plated bullets

For the price I bought cases of -39mm, I surely don’t need to reload for that caliber. Luckily Golden Tiger & Brown Bear print the best for bulk ammo and PMC jacketed SP is MOA out of my LH mini-Mauser, and 1.5 MOA out of the -39mm AR upper (w/ adj gas block). Of the others, the Norinco SKS is the b...

An SKS is zero at 25 yards and again at 100 yards. The 25 is good to get the 100 zeroed on paper at the range. PAX
If using the original sights, then yes ... or at least close.

You read it WRONG ... he says it hits 5" high at 50-yards ...

Re: SKS ballistics strangeness

Yes, scope height is responsible. But try as I may, using a slow, non-efficient 0.310” -39mm round, I can’t reproduce those results in my ballistic calculators.

Re: Update automaic case annealer.

Cool! Curious ... do you use anything like TempleLaq to verify to hit the correct temp range? Knowing I’ve achieved what I’m supposed to, is what has stopped me from buying or making anything.
