M1917 or SMLE?

Reforming brass. 8mm and 7.7

I actually just finished doing. This with .270 brass. Just a few extra steps involved. Expand to 7mm and then to .30 cal before continuing the process above. I used a small tubing cutter to trim and it worked fine! Brass turned out great for 7.7. I had to seat the .30 cal expander a little higher in...

Re: Looking for 8x50r Mannlicher load data
