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: Did you know,Martini Cadet ammunition in WWII?.......

Happy Easter Everyone!

I decided to load an experimental batch of 32 Special for my Cadet Martini.

Bullet is a .323 Privi Partizan 125 grain FMJBT Hollow Base bullet

18 grains of AA5744 powder. The cartridge chambers normally.

I will test this next weekend hopefully.

Re: Did you know,Martini Cadet ammunition in WWII?.......

Great post! It looks like the 120 grain jacketed bullet was .318 in diameter. I wonder if the Privi Partizan 125 grain .323 bullet would work? It has a hollow base.

Re: A great bullet for the Martini Cadet.

Rob,

I have to pull the lever a little lower when loading but that is about it. No extraction issues

Re: A great bullet for the Martini Cadet.

Rob, She shoots great in 32 Special. I notice that there is a bit of drift with the 165 grain bullets. I have hit steel targets at 200 yards with this little rifle. Very accurate. I like using Vectan BA 9 (13 grains) and AA 5744 (24 grains). BA 9 has a similar burn rate to Unique. I call it "Le Uniq...

Re: A great bullet for the Martini Cadet.

Rob,

This is good news. I have a Cadet Martini that was rechambered to 32 Special. Do you think this bullet would work for my gun? I typically use the Lyman #323470 sized to .323. The bullet drops at 165 grains for me.

Thanks for posting this,

Chris

Howdy Folks,

Wolff Gunsprings delivered! I used a standard 98 Mauser 24 pound spring for my rifle. It fits perfect.

Here is another shot of the Portuguese M 1904/39 along with some other guns I have been shooting. I really enjoy shooting this rifle.

Re: Portugese M 1904/39 Striker Spring

Thank you again! I plan on buying a good selection of springs. I did not find the bolt too hard to reassemble...I used a old 2x4 block to recock it. This spring I am planning to change out a bunch of springs on my shooters. I have found that replacing springs has helped with tightening groups (at le...
