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.
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.

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...

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...

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? Don't know any specifics about this particular batch, but if you are speaking of the VZ50 in general, I bought one several years ago, and find it to be a very well built reliab...

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 ...
