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: 8mm Lebel Revolver Load

Mark,

Re: Classifieds section?

I agree with Friedspam's complaint. Many of us were site benefactors with many posts, so again reaching 30 posts could be an effort. but if my count is correct, this is #30 for me :D .

Re: Lee-Enfield Modifications, Replicas, and Fakes

Here is the only one that Numrich has left to buy. Looks like it is held on by retaining pins, does you barrel have two grooves cut on the top?

Re: Lee-Enfield Modifications, Replicas, and Fakes

I bought one of those Ishapore 2A1 converted rifles, made to look like a #5 Enfield. Really a nice looking rifle, well built. Only issues I have had is that it is sensitive to the load, as I had extraction issues as the brass was swelling a bit due to high pressure. I had to back off the Grs of powd...

Re: RUBY Won't Load

You see I ran into the problem when i was trying to get the 32 long to work and feed properly on more than 1 or 2. Idea was to run through a magazine as fast as I could with no issues. Problem was the jacketed bullets were running a little too small in diameter so they were also a little too short. ...

Re: British Martini

Just loaded 20 rounds for a friends Martini, used a 485 gn bullet which measures at .462 diameter. Used a 45/70 load specs for a trap door for 5744 powder. I make it a practice to anneal before every loading on this brass, had the misfortune of splitting 5 out of 20 when I fired the rounds when I di...

Re: Spanish M1916 Comparison

It has a Z prefix on the assy number, serial has no prefix. I did put a ball gauge in the barrel, came out around .302, which excludes the rifling depth. A 308 brass fit perfectly and extracted, so I guess it's a fluke with the caliber stamp.

Re: Spanish M1916 Comparison

You got me looking at my 1916 rifle. Mine is stamped with the caliber of 7.52, but has the cross bolt. Sight #3 position still unmarked in anyway. Took off the hand guard and the barrel is set back. Any idea about the caliber stamp???

Re: RUBY Won't Load

Mark,

When I was making ammo for my French long 32 I was having the same type of issue, turned out my AOL was a little too short in my case. I realize these are factory loads, but see what they are running.

Re: Converting .348 Win to 10.4mm Italian Vetterli

C&H makes dies for that caliber I bought a set for my rifle. Ended up using a 255gn bullet .429 diameter. If I remember correctly I tried a heavier one but it didn't want to chamber properly. It was sometimes faster to go through Buffalo when ordering C&H dies, they would have them in stock, where y...

Mark,

Are you shooting hollow points or FMJ bullets, some autos only feed FMJ consistently.
