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: Help with Krag value?

Thank you RWS. I do reload but I am not buying the rifle. I have one but was just sort of wondering what they bring as they seem rare with all the wood. Thanks again, Kurt

Re: Help with Krag value?

Thank you. I was thinking it was a good buy at that price but your points are important considerations.

Re: Oh Crap - My Mauser Safety Doesn't Work - Now what do I do?

Yes Thank you for this instructional post! I had this exact issue about a week ago and fumbled onto the fix, but as you imply, I was getting my blood pressure up thinking I was going to have to go to a smith to fix something I kinda new was and ignorance issue! Your post, if I can find it again, wil...

Help with Krag value?

Hello, I've found an ad for a Krag rifle that shows a picture of it and it is original full length rifle with full military stock but with a scope mounted. Ad says "shoots good". This is a general question as to the value of such a rifle in that it is a full original military Krag except for scope m...

Re: Minimum Loads Safe ?

les, I see what you are saying and understand. I discovered the case body, just above the head, was not getting sized so I fixed that. I will be testing more rounds next week and will look at the pin if deep hits continue. Thank you for the guidance.

noyji, thanks for taking the time.

Please discuss how trying another bolt in a No4 Mk1 to remedy headspace issue could be or likely be problematic. Thank you

Re: Minimum Loads Safe ?

I went to the range today and fired the ten rounds i had loaded. Unfortunately there was a minor problem in that the firing pin marks seemed to punch through slightly and show a bit of gas escape. No primer protrusion and the smoke appeared only on the case neck not the body, that I could see. Bolt ...

Re: Minimum Loads Safe ?

I assume both Lyman and Hornady know what they are doing. Actually I'm certain after thinking about it but it is puzzling how one has a 40 grain minimum load and the other 36 but I guess that is not that much. I am going to the range tomorrow, if the rain is tolerable. Thanks to all for your replies...

Minimum Loads Safe ?

I am working with a 1916 Spanish Mauser 308 and so I have been reading about minimum loads a little bit. My reading indicates a strong concern from writers to avoid going below the minimum listed in the manuals for fear of detonation. I also want to load for low pressure [/band I believe going to lo...

Re: Depriming by hand

I am not that familiar with the 577 & 450 but I set my 303 sizing die just so it de-caps and touches up the neck.

Re: 1916 Spanish Mauser help ?

Sorry I guess I can't delete my initial post, but I had a thought after I posted, and I moved the safety to the CENTER ON position,( meant Full OFF in my original post) and reassembled the bolt. Fixed. I am probably the best example of why specific posters should be able to delete. :oops: I will off...

1916 Spanish Mauser help ?

Hello, Somehow lost my membership here but I am back and asking for some help. I have a 93 Mauser on which the safety will not budge from the full safe position. I have disassembled the bolt to look at the safety after watching a youtube video on the 98's safety but that info will not help. The fili...
