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: Attempting to clone GP11 in my K31

Wow. Is that 100 yards or two? I’m guessing five shots with first shot flyer? Do you get that all the time? Very good shooting for irons.

Re: Brazilian 1908 non matching Long rifle.

For ammo I second the FN from the 1970s. Also Chilean Military Surplus. If newer than I believe 1973 it is non corrosive. That 1930s FN is best to pull for components. Congrats on your purchase. I decided to pass on the 30’s FN ammo. Other expenses have arisen, don’t ya know. Now the trick will be ...

Re: Help determining build date of DWM Model 1908

I assume a DWM with a single letter is a safe bet it’s from the first run.

Re: Help determining build date of DWM Model 1908

My confusion stems from the listed data that says DWM was the first issue or rifles 1908-1911 or so. Second issue was Oberndorf which had the two letter suffixes below the serial numbers. But mine, and others have address Listed as DWM- Berlin but also has the Bb under the serial numbers. There is t...

Help determining build date of DWM Model 1908

Barrel and Receiver have matching serial numbers...2989 with "Bb" underneath. Both barrel and receiver also have the number 62 stamped on the bottoms. Can someone help determine when this particular barreled receiver was built? Thanks. https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/ZRZ4n3ymK1psWZw9p_lldHoJUeXqhq...

Re: Brazilian 1908 non matching Long rifle.

My lee pacesetter die set arrives today. I think I have a few boxes of Speer and Sierra 139 and 154? Grain SP’s left from loading up my 7mm Remington Express. I have various powders. Does anyone have a pet load for their 1908 Brazilian they like? This would just be a suggestion for powder mainly. I’...

Re: Brazilian 1908 non matching Long rifle.

I may need to get a box or two then. Still, it would be nice to be able to find some of that FN70’s ammo that is supposed to be so accurate. I’d like to try it.

Re: Brazilian 1908 non matching Long rifle.

I found some FN 7x57 surplus but it’s made in the ‘30’s. I’d assume this is corrosive and best left alone? It’s 174 FMJ’s.

Re: Brazilian 1908 non matching Long rifle.

Sounds like I need to find some FN 7mauser surplus ammo. Any suggestions?

Also are there any other factory ammos, other than Remington core lokt, that has a rep for performing very well in these old horses? I’m thinking of trying Hornady’s New lines.
