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: 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.

Re: Safe ammo for 1916 spanish?

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" ? Thank you again, Kurt The cartridge cases have defective/fatal flaws in the brass. If you have the skill and need ...

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.

Re: Safe ammo for 1916 spanish?

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 ...

Re: Browning has ceased producing Hi Power

If policy at Browning is the same as it was a few years back...they will not provide service OR parts for models out of production. My B80 shotgun has been discontinued for years but Browning did steer me to the business they sold all their parts to upon the discontinuation of this model. There shou...

If you crimp a cast bullet it hurts the accuracy . The more you crimp it , the more it shaves the bullet as it exits the case mouth .
Would this then not hurt accuracy on cast revolver ammunition. Such factory ammo is heavily crimped as are my great shooting reloads.

And try some "blemished" Nosler RDF BULLETS for 20cents each! Even less if you are LE, Military or Veteran.
