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...

Re: Flat or round?

You want the truncated cone bullet. Maybe more damage but for sure straight true penetration. The TC bullet is "point stabilized" in dense medium (flesh). It will not stray off in a random direction, and also better thru glass and sheet metal if entering at an angle. The original German 9mm military...

Re: Had a Kivvari trigger job lately?..

I asked because his site asked and still lists $64.95 total for the trigger job....he charged my card $87.95 and told me by email..."did not update my site, my bad".

Seems I missed an email on "new price"...Kivarri said he would refund to his site's price. I'm good

I understand you WILL have to undergo a background check to buy a suppressor, and Fellons, domestic abusers and the dangerously mental ill are prevented by law from owning firearms already, no?

Re: Anyone have trouble with 7.35 surplus bullets and lee dies?

I use Lee 7.35 dies and the Hornady SP bullet. No issues seating the bullets at all. Flare the necks?... I just FL size and the die's expander makes my case neck perfect size to accept and secure the Hornady bullet.

Re: 7.62x54r chamber insert to shoot 7.62x25?

I think generally inserts are considered not safe. The risk of them being extracted without knowing is too high...unless made permanent somehow These inserts are single shot sub-caliber units MADE to be ejected. These allow you to shoot a pistol round in a high power rifle as the insert is the dime...

Re: 303 ammo listed

Yes Corrosive and mixed Mk7 and Mk8z ball maybe 60+ years old, and stored how / where? 52 cents / rd PLUS freight?

You can buy new Wolf steel case for much less, and Prvi reloadable boxer primed ammo for only a bit more. No sale!

Re: Group pester to PPU for 7,62x45 brass and or ammo

Note sent. I have contacted Sellier & Bellot and Prvi both in the past on this round and 5.45x39, and I have always received a "not interested at this time" response.

You have to think they would sell as much as 7.35 Carcano and 8 Lebel, no?

Re: Vintage Prvi?

Back in the 1980s and 90s Prvi was making contract runs for both Hansen Cartridge Co and Century. Some had custom Headstamps and some came in with the nny headstamp. The green primer paint was common on Prvi commercial ammunition.

Re: 7.62 OFV 86

It is Boxer/NonCorrosive. Quality may be suspect on that era OFV mfg. The 1970s production is OK as the line was set up by Winchester/Olin I'm that decade and some QC people/procedures seem to be in place. The 1990s and later OFV imported is REAL BAD ammo. I can not say for sure where your 1986 qual...
