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: Found some surplus 8mm.

The Egyptian 8mm is 198gr FMJBT vs the Turk 154gr FMJ FB. Some have reported duds in their Egyptian 8mm these days but it was good for me in the 1980s.

Looks extruded into chamber defect all around the edge of the shoulder...and also the weird cuts/gouge.

Re: Reloading PSL, deformed cases

There seems to be marks all around the circumference of the shoulder...how can this be happening on ejection? Seems like a scared up chamber issue, as if someone dug out a seperated Case with a jackhammer.

Re: Czech she semi auto rifle

"Attachment clips for a bipod"? I don't think there is a bipod or clips to attach same for this rifle. Look for an importers stamp on the receiver or barrel of the rifle. While a lot of these rifles have the "Bringback" story...those same rifles often have the importer stamp and are not Bringback wa...

I checked your link and $34.00 a box is pricey to me ( not that it is, I am cheap). I was hoping to get it under $25 a box.
Well then, you will need to buy 2000 boxes from your buddy to get it that cheap.

Re: How desirable is 9mm largo?

Starline sells 9 Largo brass and your buddy could load it on his 9mm Luger line with no need for new dies/equipment (just adjustment).

PCI is a firm like your buddies. They make 9mm Largo. Graf & Sons has it in stock.

Re: Buying an Enfield wasn't the plan but......

The trick is to set your eye up so that the eye relief just lets the ends of the "ears" almost touch the sides of the aperture (as viewed), then ignore the rear completely. The eyeball "No1 Mk1" will find the center automatically! :dance: I can't be more specific than that because they came in seve...

I can see that being a problem. My press uses free floating dies so this cannot happen.
The Lee shell holder with my 7.35 die set works for me on Prvi brass too.

Re: 6.5x52 Carcano - Shell holder of choice?

You want the RCBS #9. If you use another # be sure the bevel of the shell holder does not hold the case off its floor. If this happens, the case will rock a bit when in the shell holder...and if you full length size the case will go into the die too far. This will push the shoulder back too far and ...

Re: Minimum Loads Safe ?

:mrgreen: You will be fine with any conservative .308 load. All Spanish GI ammo, both 7.62 CETME and 7.62 NATO has THE SAME chamber pressure listed on the Spanish Arsenal ammo data sheets. There never was a low pressure load for converted rifles. The CETME round was designed for low recoil in auto f...
