Re: A great bullet for the Martini Cadet.

Rob, She shoots great in 32 Special. I notice that there is a bit of drift with the 165 grain bullets. I have hit steel targets at 200 yards with this little rifle. Very accurate. I like using Vectan BA 9 (13 grains) and AA 5744 (24 grains). BA 9 has a similar burn rate to Unique. I call it "Le Uniq...

Re: A great bullet for the Martini Cadet.

Rob,

This is good news. I have a Cadet Martini that was rechambered to 32 Special. Do you think this bullet would work for my gun? I typically use the Lyman #323470 sized to .323. The bullet drops at 165 grains for me.

Thanks for posting this,

Chris

Howdy Folks,

Wolff Gunsprings delivered! I used a standard 98 Mauser 24 pound spring for my rifle. It fits perfect.

Re: Portugese M 1904/39 Striker Spring

Thank you again! I plan on buying a good selection of springs. I did not find the bolt too hard to reassemble...I used a old 2x4 block to recock it. This spring I am planning to change out a bunch of springs on my shooters. I have found that replacing springs has helped with tightening groups (at le...

Hello Everyone, I was recently given a beautiful Portuguese Mauser-Verigiero in 8x57. Will the striker spring would exchange with a standard 1898 Large Ring Mauser spring? I have taken the bolt apart and I think they are close but I want to make sure. The spring seems a little slow and I would like ...
