Re: Czech 8mm, 180 grain

Where can I find information on this particular ammo? I find a lot from 1963 and bought 150 rounds. It looks like steel washed copper, or whatever they call it. Same color as the Russian 7.62x54R. What is the headstamp.. can you post a picture? A lot of copper wash steel case Bulgarian 8mm (Factory...

Re: Brazilian beauty

NICE rifle! Mine is not that pretty but a good enough shooter to often win our NM milsurp 800 yard match. Shooting 800 later this month. I will report on the 1908s score.

I ran some numbers and at our ranges altitude, and humidity the bullet stays Supersonic a little farther.
I'll find out in the AM and post results.
Let me know how the 800 yard practice goes.

Re: 1891 Long Rifle at 800 yards.

Rob: FYI
the Hornady ballistics book shows that 6.5mm 160gr RN bullet doing 1024fps @ 600 yards if launched at 2200fps. That is as far (600yds) out as they list it.

got my hopes up - I thought it was going to be a postal match... :whistle:
We will understand why you can’t make it from Pennsyltuckey, but I can’t understand why more Albuquerque-Santa Fe guys don’t show up for some range fun. We shoot laying down in the shade for goodness sake!

Re: Chilean Mauser Long Rifles

The “stippling” is from the impacts of a neighbor rifles rear sight adjustment slide.
Look at the knurled side of that sight slide in your photo right above the stippling.

Re: NM MILSURPS Running Man 4TH July shoot

Sorry I missed the shoot...that sounds like fun. Josh won 30rds of 1979 Yugo 8mm I brought up last weekend. If that stuff didn’t shoot? His gun does need work. Everyone (but him) loves that 8mm.

Let me, and everyone, know what is next.

Mine will move...can shove it left OR right. I have yet to fix it.
I will check my front sight again for movement but it seemed pretty solid. Just canted. How would one fix this problem?
Silver solder I suspect

Re: vetterli carbine at range.

All I’ve tried so far is the 2400. Anybody try other powders that give good groups? The 20 grains of 2400 show no pressure signs and are giving 1300 FPS. I’m thinking I can increase the load for more velocity which would help in hunting deer. Thing the metallurgy of the 69/71 is strong enough for s...
