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: Corrosive M2 ?

Yes, it is 30-40 Krag I use to have a rifle and sold it too cheaply and stupidly. The only thing I see as a date is on the box and it displays as 8-30 on the box cover, lower right. Possibly August 1930? Here's the headstamp. http://pic20.picturetrail.com/VOL1310/13758252/24855536/414407910.jpg Than...

Re: Corrosive M2 ?

Thank you all! It is in nice condition and will not be used in a Garand. The only problem now is I have so much arthritis in me I don't think I can shoot it unless I drop the load a bit. Is it loaded with IMR4895? It has 50 grains in it and that's the low end of the range on the Hodgden website so I...

Re: Help ID AMMO?

Thank you for the information. I disassembled the ammo this evening and it was a shame. The cases were clean lightly oiled and the bullets pulled without issue even though I used a 30 cal puller. There were 58 grains of a flake powder and a 155-grain bullet. By the looks of it, it was like new ammun...

Re: So far good! This newbie still has his fingers

The bedding required on a Model 111 is illustrated on youtube somewhere and it is shown that it is important to bend the rear action screw as well as the forward receiver/barrel. If yours has the cheaply made synthetic stock, as does mine, it is a bit tricky but it can be done and is effective. Good...

Re: Annealing brass ?

OLDGUNNER, Thanks very much for the information on annealing brass. Very interesting reading and thought-provoking. I am going to do a bit more reading about it and some experimentation just to see what happens to brass as it is worked. Thanks very much.

Re: My experience with TRAIL BOSS POWDER

Bob, Yes I am using the pulled 147-grain FMJ boattails and I am salvaging the powder too but since I don't know what it is I can only use it to reload 7.62 NATO or 308 Win. The weighed salvaged amount is 42.5 grains per round. Here is a picture of a group I shot with another scoped 308 Winchester us...

Re: Reloading 30-40 Krag

I tried resizing 303 Britsh in a 30/40 die and they worked fine. The neck is a little short but it doesn't seem to matter. I used the starting load data.

My experience with TRAIL BOSS POWDER

I just wanted to offer for those who may not know but be interested, that Trail Boss powder is a hoot. I discussed some 7.62X51 ammo I acquired and through that discussion discovered the brass maybe brittle. Wanting to err on the safe side but not abandon it completely, I pulled the bullets and swit...
