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: SOME THOUGHTS ON ACCURACY & OTHERS

The US has long been an Oligarchy. Basically the Banks and Government have merged at this point. This process clearly started in the early Progressive Era under Roosevelt and later Wilson. W.J. Bryant said after losing the 1900 Presidential Election that the next war would be with Germany. He was co...

Re: SOME THOUGHTS ON ACCURACY & OTHERS

They emasculate teachers in Japan! Ouch! (just kidding..I just found that funny.) The dumbing down was done on purpose here. More people going to college means more social indoctrination and long-term debt. Support the system and you receive free child care up until age 18. Logic and Classical Philo...

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.

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
