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: How's Deer season gone?

There are some nice deer pictured in this thread. Good work, y'all.

Season hasn't started yet here in Alabama. But I'll be hunting this year with Barnes 120-grain TSX out of my Swede sporter--as soon as I get some loaded. Wish me luck with that project!

Re: Scout Scope Suggestions?

I've had good luck with the Leatherwood/Hi-Lux 2-7x32mm Long Eye Relief Riflescope, using the Brenshok scope base, which fits over and retains use of the rear sight. Put one on a Swede m38 and one on a VZ-24. Both rifles so scoped have put meat on the table. So, there's my $0.02

For the record, I'm using Varget in all of my loading for Swiss rifles. Load data from the thread I mentioned above.

Re: Any of you guys hunt with you K31?

I hunted with Swiss rifles for a number of years, had great success with both whitetails and feral hogs (most of the latter on the order of 150-200 lbs). I used 150-grain Hornday SPs early on, but upgraded to the 165-grain Sierra GKs after reading this thread: https://www.tapatalk.com/groups/theswis...

What was the original finish on military K31s?
Shellac on the beech stocks, linseed oil + turpentine on the walnut stocks.

Re: Who here uses a wet tumbler?

That's what I've done: Harbor Freight rock tumbler, rifle brass and hot water with just a few drops of Dawn and a bit of citric acid powder from the canning section at Walmart. No pins. Haven't needed them.

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: 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.
