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.

Great story. Thanks for sharing.

A lot better than what one sees in what passes for "gun magazines" these days.

Re: M91 Moisin Nagant in US Service

Probably even lesser known is that our troops used the M91 on Russian soil and against Bolshevik Russians in offensive operations north of Moscow, and defensive and strategic area and facilities control operations in Siberia. Approximately 13,000 American troops were in Russia for several months, 10...

Re: Stopping Power - Good Overview Video

The .36 cap and ball revolvers sport about the same ballistics (80 grain projectile at 800-900 fps)as the .32 ACP, and they were once favored by many serious individuals for combat and self defense, and rightfully so. Among others, Bill Hickok put quite a number of men in the ground with one, most w...

Re: Stopping Power - Good Overview Video

Interesting, in that it somewhat reflects Marshall and Sanow, but there is also a lot of "what if" extrapolation in their theories. I am not so sure on it dismissing the ,22 and the .32 ACP so easily. One major reason is, that likely as not, those calibers are being used by individuals not as well t...

Re: 8x56R 208 grain long range load

Impressive, and very interesting.

I have an M95 short rifle and enjoy shooting it, mostly with cast loads. Nice to know the performance of the German loads can be duplicated.

What is your source for those Berdan primers? I have some of the WWII era German brass and would like to give that a try.

Re: CZ-50 Chronograph reload results

Thanks. FWIW, after seeing your reply I did some looking and, I know it is old (from the 30s-40s depending on the edition), but you may find it interesting that Sharpe's Complete Guide to Handloading , on page 405, cites a 3.4 gr load of Unique under a 74 grain FMJ bullet, for 985 fps and pressure o...

Re: Here is a strange rifle (at least to me) I was hoping someone could tell me about it. Thank you.

Yep, a 96 Swede Mauser, made in 1901, that someone cut the stock down on. From what I can see on the stock disc, the bore should be in decent shape. It was Sweden's issue military rifle from 1895 to 1938, when it was replaced by the shorter M38 version. There are muzzle caps (to protect those thread...

Re: powder for 7.5 swiss and 30-06

A Ruger #1.30-06 is my go to hunting rifle, and the K31 is my rifle of choice for most vintage surplus matches, so I want to get the absolute best out of both of them. IMR 4064 has been my go to for .30-06 for many many years and gives me MOA groups with the Ruger and 150 gr ballistic tips. When I s...

The VZ 50 pistols are on sale again for 250 bucks, In good condition ( holster wear ) are these pistols a decent purchase?

A Remington model 41 "Targetmaster" given to me by my uncle when I was 9. He is the one who first taught me to shoot. It was the very first gun I owned.

Re: Odd 5 surplus rifles one should never buy

I own three of the five rifles on that list, albeit the 49/56 and the 36 MAS rifles are in the original 7.5 French caliber. I have to heartily disagree with the assessment of the Beretta Storm though. I have had one in .40 S&W for a number of years and have had no problems with it, and can't say as ...
