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: Found some surplus 8mm.

My experience - I began with some of the case of 50's Yugo pulling bullets, and then reloading the powder, due to considerable variations in powder loads from round to round. The Turk ammo was even worse. When I got a bunch of Egyptian ammo, I started off doing the same, but quickly stopped, as the ...

Re: AMMUNITION ACCURACY

This is where reloading becomes fun. Trying out different bullets, powders, load, velocities, etc., all to get the best accuracy. Develop an 7.92x57 load that is spot on with H4895, then I ask myself, would CFE223 work better? Time to grab a pound of powder and load up! Unfortunately, I don't have t...

Re: VZ-52 SHE

Looks nice. I like the original x45 round, but getting the brass formed is a tedious process! How's your grouping? My barrel is pretty pitted, and after slugging it, found it is .314. The .312 150 Grain bullets meant for the 7.7 Jap work great, and I was able to get a load to shoot 2.5" I figured no...

Re: Mil surp gun shops on the Way to Tulsa

I used to live in Springfield and Joplin, Mo. There used to be a few shops in Springfield that regularly carried mil-surps, but I haven't been there for a while so I don't know if any are still in business or what they may carry now. In Joplin, just a bit off the Interstate, is Steve's Trading Post....

Re: Surplus Rifle Wiki

I remember the Wiki getting started. The link on the top is to the way-back machine for the old surplusrifle.com site. Is there a good link to the SR Wiki?

Go target shooting after surgery?

Need a little advice here. I just had a hernia repair surgery today, and I think I did well. This was my first time to go under anesthesia or have invasive surgery, so I was a bit apprehensive, but it is fine. I ended up taking several days off of work to let myself rest, more mental than anything. ...

Re: Israeli K98

That one is in nice condition compared to many I've seen. I always wondered if there were any around that missed the conversion to 7.62, and still were in 8mm.

Re: G98 bring back and g98b bring back

Dumb question but I saw a guy at a show selling a WW1 German rifle all matching bring back one of his great grandfathers said he brought it back but the commanding officer made him break the firing pin off he had a new one in it and the broken one. Did sruff like that really happen. Or was it just ...

My grandfather brought back a bayonet for the Danish Krag from WW2. Some day I will get the rifle to match. Let us know how it shoots!

SRF is back, and so am I. Maybe I'll get back active more than I've been the last couple years.
