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.

Any Interest in a Sporters / Hunters Postal Match?

Just curious. I have a couple of nice sportered Mausers (pawn shop finds) and two or three no-alterations-needed scoped rifles, otherwise unmolested. I have hunted (and put meat on the table) with all of them.

Would anyone be interested in a Postal Match focusing on this class of surplus rifle?

Re: Renewal

I'm renewing mine right now. Even though my acquisition rate has slowed to a crawl, I like my dealer account with Graf's too much to give it up. And there's always the off chance that a nice Swedish m96 will need a new home. . . .

Anybody know off hand who the CLEO is in Montgomery, AL?

Lead sled. Should I be embarrassed to admit that?

Hope so! That's my next project. I bought a bunch of them last spring, but then got distracted by my R. FAMAGE pawnshop sporter fixer-upper.

That may be, and I hope it is. In his write up, which is long, he says he spends a little extra for a good walnut stock. It's not encouraging.

I was thinking of patching both cast and jacketed .308 bullets to shoot through my Lee Enfields. . . .
This is intriguing. Now I'm wondering whether patching or powder coating might make .284" bullets fly straight through my .287" Spanish Mauser.

Re: Gilding the Lily, Gunbroker Style

I recently took the average of 9 successful GunBroker k31 auctions, not counting this one. The average was a little over $600. What most bummed me out about this auction is what the guy did to the rifle. Among other things he sanded the stock, and cerakoted the metal. Somehow, destroying the collect...

Re: 95 Chilean Carbine

I have a couple of overbore 7mm Mausers: a Spanish m1916 Ludwig Loewe, and a Venezuelan parts rifle -- don't ask. . . . Anyway, both shoot quite well with these: https://www.buffaloarms.com/287-diamete ... -bac287154

Re: Who is making .318" bullets?

That is all Buffalo does , alter Hornady bullets [ they are the easiest to work with ] , crush them up or squeeze them down . Good to know. Thanks. Not to hijack the thread, but do you have any insight about whether this crushing or squeezing does anything deleterious to bullet integrity? I hunt a ...

Re: Who is making .318" bullets?

+1 on Buffalo Arms. I bought some .287" 154-grain SPs from them a few years ago, for use in my Loewe Spanish m1916 with oversize bore. They shoot well (unlike the .284" 139-grain bullets that went all over the place). I killed a smallish hog with one a while back; it did the job exactly as expected....
