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: So far good! This newbie still has his fingers

Nice. I started with Lee Loaders. Good for taking your time and getting used to the process.

Polish M44

Picked this up for a nice price. Appears to be unfired. Looks like the previous owner sanded the stock. Only bummer. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20180831/5513bc2f6f62ed58f683d66a926d9e18.jpg https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20180831/f69d3ffd62e1df4f6450ef0025b2113c.jpg https://uploads.tapatalk-...

Re: powder for 7.5 swiss and 30-06

I have used 4064 and BL-C(2) for all my swiss rifles with good results. However the edge goes to 4064.

Latest aquisition

Picked up a Schmidt Rubin 1889 the other day. Manuf date 1892. Every numbered part is matching. Looking forward to making some 7.5x54.5 rounds for this guy.

Re: Pet loads for 8x56R and m95/30 "stutzen"?

I use 40 gr of Varget with a 208 gr PPU bullet. I apply a light crimp also. Has much lighter recoil than commercial rounds. Accuracy is good.

Re: Lee FCD for 8x56R at MidwayUSA

I had given up looking for a Lee FCD for my Steyr M95 (Lee doesn't offer them on their website) . . . and then I got a marketing email from Midway informing me that they had said die on sale for about $12. Yes, I jumped on it. Shipping was $4.99 to my location. Thought inquiring minds might want to...

New (old) Steyr M95

Picked up a nice M95 at a reasonable price. Cleaned up great and took it to the range today. Needed slight windage adjustment and shot fine. Man she kicks too !! Reminds me of my VEPR.

Re: 175 gr Nosler RDF bullets

Still using the Berger 175 VLD with great results. These bullets are rumored to be close to the GP11 bullets in performance.Image

Re: Cast Bullets for Carcano

Not using cast bullets, using Hornady (see pic). Using PPU brass and 29.5 gr of Hodgdon BL-C(2). My rifle will keyhole with .264 bullets, so I had to go with the .267 from Graf’s . Results were good. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20180211/3cb33b80677022fd1ac5ebd471c7d09f.jpg Sent from my iPhone u...

Re: Cavalry Carbine Issue

This is why I like these boards. You get the benefit of others experience. This is all good info. So you ordered the bullet sizer custom made from Lee ?? One other small issue I have with my rifle. A little hard to eject. Meaning I need a little torque to eject the casing. It was the same for factor...

Re: Cavalry Carbine Issue

Wow great job what a difference! Never knew that some of the new made ammo was the wrong diameter. Is this true for any other calibers. Thanks !! And from what I've read the Carcano is unique as far as bullet diameter issues. I'm no expert on ballistics though. Maybe another member could comment on...

Re: Cavalry Carbine Issue

For all interested. Shot handloads today. What a difference. Tried three different powder weights, heaviest worked best. May up that load slightly next time. But results were good. No keyholing, so bullets are correct for this gun. Load info: PPU brass Hornady 160 gr RN .267 diameter Hodgdon Powder ...
