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: Swiss M-78 Load Development and Results

No idea on the 4198 load, but on the SMLE Enfields, rimmed case, I put 1 thin dental/braces elastic at/above the rim for the 1st firing, to keep the rim up against the bolt, or breech block in your case. Fireforms the case to the chamber, then I neck-size only. I do not know/own a Vetterli .. but co...

Oh, that’s good to know! My brother’s WASR is almost unshootable, Just a few mags and it feels like you’ve caught a baseball with your bare hand ... and not a clean catch either ... ouchy mama!

Re: Mosin replica made by Keystone in .22

I sold a friend an Iver Johnson look-alike M1 Carbine in 22LR and he added a few military type features to it (see photo) plus a sling and it looks great!

Re: Anyone tried Aguila ammo?

It is PHENOMENAL accurate ammo in their high velocity 22LR loading, right there behind Ely & Tenex match loads, per surprising Guns&Ammo tests.

Re: Spanish M1916 Comparison

I must be old, I remember a Dealer from my Club selling them for $75, mostly matching if I recall correctly, if not all. Not beaters either. A bunch of us bought them, all passed headspace gauge checks and we had a blast shooting them in our cast boolit shoots.

Awesome photos, brought tears - of joy & sadness - to my eyes. I thank them for their sacrifices and service. Indeed ... the greatest generation!

Re: How many hours of work to make a Mauser Receiver

I suspect its related to manufacturing capability. I would reason it is far more for production tooling costs & setup than capability ... Think about it, as an example, when the Thompson/Center factory building muzzleloaders (straight profile barrels) in NH burned down, the biggest obstscle to any ...

Re: Photographing a bore

How about these? FWIW, they were taken using one of ~$15 LED endoscopes - they work slick! My twin brother took these pictures of the bore of his 45-70 Trapdoor using one of those LED 5.5mm endoscopes that are sold on the likes of eBay and Amazon. They come with a 5' or longer cable that plugs into...

I wonder if someone shot it in matches and put a ‘dimple’ in the stock grip ‘cap’ area everytime they did?

Sounds great! Can’t wait to hear your results and I hear you on their bores being “all over the place”. Haven’t taken mine out past 200-yds yet, but am having tons of fun with it using cast boolits & CE Harris loads through it. We have an informal milsurp shoot weekly using cast loads only and its a...

Re: M4 sherman In WWII

Watched another episode last night about a couple US M26 Pershing heavy tanks that did make it to Europe in early ‘45 as the US Army was heading deeper into Germany. It had a 90mm cannon and one tank knocked out 3 Tiger 1s. Other M26s in that same tank company all had severe mechanical problems, as ...
