Re: .310 Cadet handloads at 200 meters off-hand

Both. Bertram Brass and I turn down .32-20 brass ( shorten and thin rim) anybodys brass will work just fine, the bullet diameter is critical. It must be .323 or a little larger in order to be accurate.

1910/14 Mauser Serial numbers by Year?

Any member here have a serial number list for the 1910/14 .25ACP ( 6.35mm) pistols that has the block numbers by year or even year/month?
Most articles post "between 1921 and 1928" Not a lot of help there.
Looking at serial number 248199.
Thank you.

Re: vetterli carbine at range.

Many of these era rifles and carbines had a zero of 300 meters or even more. The soldiers were trained to aim at the belt buckle or sash cross when ranges were closer than the 300 meters.
Good group at 100 yards. I think you found the correct load for your carbine.
