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: A M1911 rifle, reloads and my wife....

Hi - I have never done anything like this but it sounds interesting. Off hand I would never even think of being able to do this. Especially if it was one second max per shot. Heck, I'd feel lucky for a 24 inch group. Really, can someone tell me the ground rules for something like this? I could try ...

Rob: Was that high velocity "HP" you were shooting? I thought they were solid 40gr.

Sure did shoot good!

Re: 7.35 AMMO

Looks like you are all set for that cartridge. I just shot the last of my 7.35 GI ammo. All shot fine. I do well now with Privi brass and the Hornady bullet over NORMA 202 or IMR 4064. Next time our NM MilSurp club has a 300 yard shoot the Carcano goes to the line. I find at 500 yards the sights and...

Re: 7.62x54mmR round nose.

Great ammo for new shooter training or painless plinking in the M38 & M44 carbines.

Re: 7mm Mauser ammo info request

That older FN 7mm is Some of SAMCOs ammo imports. The 1969-1970 FN 7x57mm 140gr FMJBT was outstanding. Noncorrosive, sure fire and accurate. I won our NM Milsurps 800yard match last month with the 69 FN ammo (1908 Mauser).

Let us know how the RN ammo shoots for you.

Re: Reduced Garand Load

2400fps with accurate 5744 in a 30-06? Sounds like pressure would be excessive with that fast burning powder. And that load is only 300fps slower than M2 ball...not much of a "reduced load".

Re: Reloading Problem with Latvian 7.62 NATO Cases

Are you re-adjusting your die for those thick/tough cases or using the die set to size your other brass? Make sure your shell holder contacts the die bottom when you size the GGG brass. With the extra effort involved...it may simply be you are partially sizing that tough brass and extruding the shou...

Re: Interesting Gun Failures

The only .267" diameter bullet is the Hornady 160 gr softpoint. None of the major mfgs use this bullet in factory ammunition.

NORMA and Prvi FACTORY ammo will have .264" bullets. Small "custom loaders" often use Prvi brass and any available bullet.

ammolab. Thank you very much for your reply and the valuable advice. Excuse my request for clarification but you are saying, perhaps, "save the bullet and primer throw the rest away" ?

Re: M2 Ammo ?

A WV company (TALON) demilled a lot of USGI ammo and then assembled cartridges with new primers and powder.

Reviews of their ammo did not reveal any problems.

I would uase any quality 7.62x51 surplus EXCEPT the TZ 80 mfg....this ammo is known for MANY cartridge case head failures with 52,000psi of gas dumped into the action on firing. I had 3 cases fail from the rim to the primer pocket shooting 100rds of this ammo. Google "TZ 80 case failure" or similar ...
