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: Reloading for 1909 Mauser

The military model 1909 was made in 7.65x53 with a groove size of .311 + . The rechambering [ only ] to 30/06 was done by the importer , the barrel was not changed . Changing the expander will work ok , or just neck size with a 7.7 Jap die . Also , if the bore [ lands ] is tight enough a .308 bullet...

Re: GEW 98 long rifle at 500 and 800 yards*

How long you have done some thing makes no difference on how well you do it. If it did , most 90 year olds would be race car drivers. I have fired around 40,000 rounds of handloads [ 100's of different combinations ] through over 500 8x57mm rifles . I am not talking about any Saami data , I am talki...

Re: GEW 98 long rifle at 500 and 800 yards*

Have you run that load over the chrono ? That is a really hot load . R-15 is close to I-4064 . With 4064 48 grains is hot and 50 is max with a 150 bullet . R-15 's own data lists 48.0 - 50.0 for the 150 and only 44.0 as max for a 200 .

Surplus ammo had nothing to do with JFK . Winchester made ammo [ with the .263 bullet ] was found at the site .

Re: Advice on annealing--and YouTube posts to evaluate

Brass and steel are not the same , you have it backwards . Quenching hot steel makes it harder [ like case hardening ] , you air cool it to make it softer . Quenching brass makes it softer . Just look it up , it quit being top secret over 120 years ago after the Germans first figured it out with the...

Re: Advice on annealing--and YouTube posts to evaluate

Neither person in either video annealed the brass . The first guy did not get it hot enough to anneal it . The second guy did not water cool the brass after he heated it . The quenching is what softens the brass . Letting it air cool does not . So two people who had no idea , BUT felt they needed to...

Re: Reloading accurate ammo mini articles

That is not what I am saying . The links you posted are ok basic reloading instructions . I am talking about the series of articles on the old surplus site , listed at the top of the home page under " articles " . There are a bunch there written about reloading with cast bullets or for military rifl...

Re: Reloading accurate ammo mini articles

The reloading posts you listed are an ok example of basic reloading . BUT a lot of the stuff in the old article listings is really bad , I mean wrong , dangerous or just plain BS .

Re: Spring/Summer 50 yard Milsurp Shoot.

How would you score 10 shots fired at only 50 yards , it would be a ragged hole with no way to tell just how many bullets went through it .

Re: Price check Krag–Jørgensen Norwegen M1894 "long Krag"

With the exact model known , it is easier to give a value . The Norwegian 6.5mm Long rifle is the hardest of all the Krags to find . Being a local made rifle is a little more common than a Steyr made . On a rare rifle problems [ like the sanded stock ] do not hurt it as much as a more common rifle ....
