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: Proper usgi stock for SA M1a?

I check our freds stocks and while the price is much better, I’m not able to refinish the stock at this point. Also would be nice to find a fancy curl if possible. I know. I’m sounding quite picky aren’t I.

Re: Proper usgi stock for SA M1a?

I appreciate the offer but was interested in antiquemilitary‘s stocks because of how nice some of their originals finish usgi stocks are. Just wondering if anyone has used this guy, antiquemilitary, before and if his stocks are decent deals. The one SA walnut stock I saw was over $200. It’s a specia...

Re: 125grain bullets in K98’s?

Thanks for the reply’s. To clarify, you are saying the 125 grain 8mm bullets shoot well out of K98 barrels with their specific 1 in 9.45 twist rate? The bullets I have to try are the Hornady “8mm Kurz” 125 HP’s. That twist is much more than what is required to stabilize a 125 gr 8mm bullet. The onl...

125grain bullets in K98’s?

Will lighter weight 125 grain 8mm “Kurtz” bullets shoot well in the K98K’s? Anyone try this?

Reproduction ZF4 scope for G43: quality?

I have an ac44 G43 that I’ve built from parts and have it shooting quite well with iron sights. Would like to try with scope but can’t afford the price of original zf4’s. Are the reproduction zf4’s of decent quality or should I steer clear of them? What is a reasonable price for them if a viable opt...

Re: Forming and sizing Bertram 43 Beaumont brass

Does anyone know how strong the Bertram brass is compared to 5090 sharps cases that most of us used to convert to 43 Beaumont? Just wondering if I can shoot warmer loads safely in the Bertram brass? I’m talking 400 grain lead bullets at around 1500 feet a second. Also has anyone tried shooting some ...

Re: Forming and sizing Bertram 43 Beaumont brass

I also did the 50/90’s and they work just fine and as you already know, processing is much easier.
I just came across
These Bertram cases on GB and thought how hard can it be? Yikes!! I found out. But once done, the work just fine. Doubt I’ll buy any more
Though. 😂

Re: Dutch Beaumont stock restore project

Thanks for the comments. Here are some shots of the rifle fully assembled. I hope they show up well enough. It currently has about four coats of BLO. The first two coats were a 50/50 mix BLO and mineral spirits. After several days dry time, mainly because I was busy with other stuff, I would buff wi...

Re: Forming and sizing Bertram 43 Beaumont brass

Once I got twenty cases processed and sized over three days, I went ahead and loaded five and shot at 100 yards.
All went well.

Re: Forming and sizing Bertram 43 Beaumont brass

I received the brass back this past week. Than you. The cases did need 1” trimmed from them and After some study I decided to use my drill with a taped dowel to hold and spin the cases as a makeshift lathe. Using various files and sand papers I reduced the head dimension down from the .587” oversize...
