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: "Mexican Match" .45 ACP?

As a follow-up . . . Now I'm having a hard time finding 230-grain RNFP jacketed bullets to replace the RN FMJs. Any problems with substituting a 225-grain Coated Cast bullet (FP) in place of the original 230-grain FMJ? Here's a link to the bullet: https://www.grafs.com/dealer/product/569227 For the ...

Thanks! Would you recommend using one of these, or just applying crimp with the bullet seater die?

As long as the bullet is the same weight or lighter there will be no problem. Seat to the same length if possiable.
Excellent. Thanks!

Any special considerations relative to crimp?

"Mexican Match" .45 ACP?

So, I've upgraded to a .45 ACP for my backup sidearm for hunting in wild-hog country. However, I'm having a hard time finding 230-grain RN/FP ammo to carry in it. Any thoughts on the possibility of pulling the original RN FMJs and replacing them with flat point bullets? For the record, the weapon is...

Re: powder for 7.5 swiss and 30-06

I use Varget and a 165-grain Sierra GameKing, but have used other powder/bullet combinations. All shoot pretty well.

Here's a thread worth checking out: https://www.tapatalk.com/groups/theswis ... ate#p25722

Re: Spring/Summer 50 yard Milsurp Shoot.

I got out to the range this afternoon. At the end of the session, toward sundown, I got out my 24/47, did a quick sight in, and shot a target. Sadly, after the first mag, I realized the rounds were hitting low. I raised the sight one click (to 200 yards) and that helped some. In any case, here's tod...

The brass was a mix of maker for Ball and blanks. I have not really found a difference in case capacity between the military makers,at least not in the makers I have on hand.

Are you using brass from the wooden-bullet surplus blanks for this?

Re: M44 Stock - burn in wrist (oy!)

I feel your pain. I once managed to scorch the stock of a 24/47 with a clamp light and a 60-watt bulb. (Up until then, the process was working fine and pulling lots of cosmoline. It seemed safe. Live and learn). I never did get that scorch mark out completely, but I did manage to remove some or most...

Re: IMR-7383...don't overlook this powder

I'm glad to see this post! I experimented some with 7383 back before the site went down, and had great results with 8x57 and 7.62x54R. Had some fun with 8x56R, too. Other hobbies have been usurping my reloading time lately, but I do plan to do some new tests with 7383 this summer: 7x57 and 175-grain...
