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.

Almost every gun crank I run into thinks 7.62x51 NATO is loaded hotter that commercial. The military has no desire to "hot rod" their ammo. They want ammo that will function reliably to standard and not destroy their weapons and injure troops. I test fire rifles every day with commercial and militar...

I could have bought a carbine in original 8x50 cal for $75 20 years ago and could kick myself now. Currently I own a beautiful long rifle in 8x52 and reload for it. It is one of my Mauser type fav's. Buffalo Brass has the cases and you can get Lee Precision to make some collet dies for around $60 or...

The key is the de-grease in the crack. Acetone is your friend. If you can coat the out side with "whiting" then sweat it out with heat and do the final rinse with acetone more the better. My shop does this regularly with O/U and SxS shotguns. Many drenched in gun oil. Our fixes have yet to fail in o...

The "bore" (ie. between the lands) diameter may be .318 but what is the groove diameter? You don't select a bullet on European bore diameter. It has to fit the groove. Any Spanish 8x57 rifle I know of namely the Model 43 shoots the 8x57 round with a .323-.324 diameter bullet.

Well, ended up ordering the S&K mount as a D&T wasn't available. It sure looked shaky but mounted solid. Took about two hours with a Dremel on the synthetic stock to properly mount it. thanks for the recommendation!

I think 8mm is also a great choice. Barrels are very available and economically priced. Components as well. I've got a mutt K98k with a Czech surplus barrel on it. I handload Rem 185 grain .323 bullets and it shoots sub MOA if I do my part.
here you go: MAS FR-F1 in 7.62x51 or 7.5 x 54mm; p.159, "FIREARMS, The Illustrated Guide To Small Arms Of The World", McNab Scope: "It was equipped with a telescopic sight, French army standard issue being an APX L806." - Wikepedia http://tar-loisirs.t.a.pic.centerblog.net/o/bd6a9fec.jpg http://w...
I did a lot of looking and found very few examples of the 36 having been scoped and if there was one issued that way I didn't find it. That doesn't mean that it was never done but all I found were one off special set ups here and there. http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y113/GuzziRider/20171212_1612...
Suspend the parts in a pot large enough so they don't touch water. Cover with aluminum foil. Use 2 pints tap water and steam for 10 minutes. Don't need to worry about water quality and much faster.

When you consider these rifles were originally chambered for 7x57, then armory re-bored, rifled and chambered to .30-06, it is miraculous that they shoot as good as they do. A 1.25 in group at 100 yds is plenty good to have a 400 yd hunting rifle.
