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: Light weight projectiles in C96/38 or Ljungman?

I have the C96/38 short rifle as well. I am referencing the Sierra manual also and see the 3031 data. I think I have a little of that left and will try that load. Many years back I worked up hundreds of loads with 100, 120 and 140 grain bullets and usually went a grain or so higher than the max list...

Re: Light weight projectiles in C96/38 or Ljungman?

I think I was using 42-43 gr of H4895, but can't remember for sure. I know this load is in one of my reloading manuals. —Let me know so I can load some up and test velocity My best load with most of my Swede bolt rifles is still 140 gr Nosler CC bullets with RL 22. —Years ago I shot a five shot gro...

Re: Light weight projectiles in C96/38 or Ljungman?

If you give me the recipe you ended up using with these bullets I can work my way up to it and use my new labradar to tell you what the velocity is . My rifle is a Carl Gustav 1903 C96 short rifle

Re: Light weight projectiles in C96/38 or Ljungman?

Do I think these bullets are old? Yes. Yes I do. http://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-xudENHQJ8Io/Wl1TgLfcZWI/AAAAAAAAN7c/Cr8J6QqwHQAE2O1rU6OHcMxwVyrLF4BmgCHMYCw/s1024-no/IMG_5127.JPG So do you think they will work in the c96? If the bullet comes apart it would just spray down range right? If they work...

Light weight projectiles in C96/38 or Ljungman?

I've been reloading and shooting various weight bullets in my C96/38 for many years. Typically shooting 140 grain bullets, but having good results as light as 120 grain bullets. Recently I was given a box of Sierra 85 grain hollow point 6.5mm bullets. Has anyone ever tried shooting these or similar ...

Re: Ljungman adjustable gas system, another option

I think the gas tube is interfering with the screws ability to go far enough down to close off the gas flow. If I simply cut a few more threads into the opening in the top of the gas tube the screw should be able to continue on down for complete gas cut off.

Re: Ljungman adjustable gas system, another option

I do appreciate you posting where you were able to locate the screws. I did find them myself a couple months back, and my wife, who is an engineer and deals with parts suppliers every day, was able to find me a bag of the nuts as well. I actually got one bag of the titanium screws and one of the bla...

Re: Vasteras rear sight moving during firing

The tiny center screw is used to zero the sight. Many won't budge due to rust, crud whatever. It can be pretty fragile so careful but make sure it's working properly and tightened. If your unable to turn it either way it's time to get the penetrating oil out. I understand that the tiny center screw...

Re: Original stock wood color for the Swedes (bolt actions and semi's)

Since my normal method, which generally turns out very nice, is to apply the minwax stain in several coats first, to get desired color, and then hand rub on the BLO (or RLO or Tung) then the idea of using the "tinted top oils" from the stains intrigues me. I might try applying just those tinted oils...

Re: Original stock wood color for the Swedes (bolt actions and semi's)

I wonder why the Swiss used raw linseed over the boiled? I know the US used boiled linseed as well as Tung oil.
