Swede Bayo Blade Replacement

Greets I've had this bayonet for my Swedish Mauser for a while now. I bought it cheap due to condition of the blade. Seems to be a thing where people try to sharpen these and ruin the blade. Anyhow I found brand new original replacement blades at Century Arms. The issue is removing the old one. The ...

Re: 1916 Mauser external pitting safe?

I got the same rifle from J&G a couple of years ago. When I stripped it down I decided the pitting was a safety issue. Returned.

Re: 8mm reloading

I use 180 gr Nosler bullets with a light crimp, along with IMR4064 with good results.

Awesome info !!! Thanks for that.
I love Swiss rifles and can't see myself not buying more. I also reload for my 7.55x54.5 M1889.
She's a shooter too.

GP11 reloaded brass.

After a three year search I finally got a hold of some Berdan primers. Saving approximately 1100 cases over that time from my son and I. Used RL17 powder and of course Tulammo berdan primers. Fired from one of my K-11's I was pleased with the accuracy. For comparison I used PPU and milsurp GP-11. Ha...

GP11 bulging brass

Thanks for responding ammolab. After disassembly and measurement the bullets are in spec. I did find one issue though. I checked ID of some empty prepped cases and they vary a lot. That would explain the neck tension variance I was feeling when seating the bullets. The ID's were all over the place. ...

GP11 bulging brass

This happened to several cases upon seating bullets. Never saw this before during bullet seating. Using full length resized GP11 brass. (once fired) The bullets are SMK 175gr. All cases were trimmed to correct length and chamfered in and out. I did notice a lot of variance in neck tension when seati...

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.
