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: Winter 2020 50 Yard Postal Shoot

How would you score 10 shots done at only 50 yards ? It would be a ragged hole .

Re: 1891 Mosin Nagant rifle and Privi ammo 800 yards

It is regular math . He said 99.9% of HIS rifles had a .3105 bore , that means the sample group would have to be 1000 rifles to get the figure of 99.9 . 999 had .3105 , 1 did not . 999 + 1 = 1000

You have 1000 54r rifles ? 99.9% would mean 1 out of 1000 .

Re: 1870/1887 Vetterli-Vitali

My best results have been with the heeled bullet , it shoots really well . My best load was 300 gr cast heeled with 21.2 of H-2400 for 1300 fps . I have used 22 =/- 1 grain for the 300 cast load for about 1250 fps .

Re: 1891 Mosin Nagant rifle and Privi ammo 800 yards

Spec for military ammo was a .309 -.310 bullet . Strange , excluding early model Finns , about 99 % of my over 50 54r rifles are .311 + .

Re: I picked up what I thought was a Carcano today

Did you mark the rifle 6.5x54 or was it like that ? Other than the shoulder angle / lenght , there is no difference between the 6.5x52 It and the 6.5x54 ms with Norma cases . The cases are the same total length . One of my Carcano's will even chamber the 6.5x54 ms with force . My type I's will not e...

Re: I picked up what I thought was a Carcano today

The chamber cast would not tell the 6.5 J from the 6.5 It . It will tell you someone has messed with the chamber if your cast is right . A type I was never made in 6.5x54mm .

Re: Chamber diamensions for the Jap 6.5x50?

The Type I has one of the tightest chambers , the Italians made it close to the cartridge specs . If your's is that long someone has tried to rechamber the rifle . An aborted 6.5mm Roberts attempt ?

Re: Chamber diamensions for the Jap 6.5x50?

That is a question with no answer . What rifle ? Early T-38's , late T-38's and Type I's all have different size chambers . Also the chambers on rifles of the same group also vary a lot . The actual Japanese cartridge size as designed is much smaller than the T-38 chambers . It is what was used by N...

The bolt is not closing fully due to either bullet or case contact . It could be so close that just a firm thump on the bolt may fully close it . The link to the old post was an amazing collection of really bad info and advice posted by people who had no idea what they were talking about , other tha...

Re: reloading data

A lot of the info in the wiki write up is incorrect , Bores sizes , the meaning of the S ,the dates , the bullets sizes , case sizes . If you have a 8mm Military rifle you will not have a .318 bore as that size was never used by the military . It all smells like old doc's BS .

Re: I picked up what I thought was a Carcano today

The rifle is a Type I . It has the type I rear sight .As stated , look for the stripper clip guide . It will be in 6.5 Arisaka . A chamber cast will be a waste of time as the 6.5 Jap is so close to a 6.5 Carcano it will chamber and fire in the Carcano .

Re: Jap 7.7 Ammo...Safe to Shoot?

No the ammo was not the same . Different bullet ,different velocities . It is not a secret , it is documented and you can look at real ammo .
