If I had one, I would start with the Federal, blue box , 170 gr soft points. Velocity is 2360 fps. It is a very mild load. More accurate then the Remington counter-part. Check the spent case for signs of excess pressure. Then proceed on to other loads.
Great answer Smokey. Especially in regards to blanket statements about military rifle consistency. OLDGUNNER, the FR8 rifles started life as Spanish Military M 43s .

No. Disregard I SAW ONE IDENTICAL TO YOURS AT A COLLECTORS SHOW TODAY. He had it marked as a GEW88 sight as you thought and he ha...
