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.

Bulgarian Steyr 95 8x50R

Howdy folks!

I recently found a nice Steyr 1895 made in 1903.

She seems to like cast bullets. I used some 7,62x54R brass and my 8x52R Siamese dies to make cases. Works great.

Re: Patch identification

I'm willing to bet it is French for their North African troops. The Islamic crescent gives it away.

Someone wiser than me probably has better intel...

Butcharoot is great seller!

I bought some Mauser 98 stripper clips from him and they arrived fast and well packaged!

Thanks again Butch!

Here is my second submission:

My Mauser 1891 likes the Lyman 314299 bullet over Vectan BA 9!

Re: Spring/Summer 50 yard Milsurp Shoot.

Hello Everyone,

I have been testing cast loads with my DWM made Mauser Argentino 1891. I am very happy with the load.

I used the 400 m sight setting and used a center hold for this one. The Lyman 314299 GC bullet is a good one. I will play with this load at 100 and 200.

Re: Argentine 1891 Long Rifle

Vandle,

Your new rifle inspired me to shoot my old Mauser Argentino. My old rifle seems to like .313 diameter cast bullets.

Re: Quite in here

Northern NY is strange. The most expensive range here only costs $30 per year.

I enjoy summer shooting. It is slightly better than arctic shooting.

Re: Quite in here

Anyone doing any target shoots?

I have been training up for the National Matches at least the 200 yard bolt gun shoot portion...


I sold a couple of guns to buy a nice Krag. An old lady had a 1899 made Krag for sale.
