Re: Question: 7 mm Mausers, worn bores, and powder coating jacketed bullets

As the bullet is bumped up to enlarge it...wouldn’t the bullet be shortened and the jacket be thickened? That sounds legit. You may be right. RapidRob's theory also sounds legit; he may be right. Maybe both of you, depending on the bullet and the, I don't know, amount of torque applied? Or. . . ? A...

Re: "Mexican Match" .45 ACP?

There is no problem whatsoever with using 225 grain cast FP bullets with the same powder charge as factory 230 grain ammo so long as there is no feeding issue (in semi-autos). I've reloaded cast lead 230 grain bullets in .45 acp cases for over 50 years this way. Pressures will be lower and velociti...

Question: 7 mm Mausers, worn bores, and powder coating jacketed bullets

All of my 7x57 Mausers slug at .287 (groove diameter). Two of them (the Venezuelan Heartbreaker and the Loewe m1916) shoot badly with .284 jacketed bullets--even the 175-grain RNSP. Buffalo Arms sells .287 jacketed bullets (Hornady bullets, they tell me, swaged up from .284). The worn rifles in ques...

Re: "Mexican Match" .45 ACP?

What is a "RN/FP bullet"? Round nose flat point? Not possible. You mean FMJ/FP? In answer to your question about bullet profile.... http://www.acmebullet.com/Lead-Cast-Bullets-45-Colt-250-Grain-RNFP Of course, for this project I didn't use this exact bullet; I used 225-grain coated bullets of the s...

Re: Schmidt-Rubin 96/11

Swiss Products has a nice clamp-on scope mount that puts a scope above the receiver, offset slightly to the left. I have one on my k11; it works like a champ.

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 ...

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?
