Re: New member from Florida

Welcome from Toronto Tom, I was just at a Jays vs Rays game! Go figure. My wife and I travel to Fort Walton Beach (Destin) every September. We like photos and everyone shares their knowledge freely here!!

Re: Images of the Longbranch Factory

I live in Mississauga, it literally borders Toronto. Longbranch is less than a mile from my pistol club. Not much of the old factory is left.

Re: Reloading for the K31

RCBS '75 dies and a LEE FCD. It is a dupe of the M-118 long range load. Lee dies work as well in my 1911. I just back them off a little to neck size only. You may want to start at 42 grains and work up. I found that some Berdan primers are hotter than others. Thanks Rob. I remember you saying that ...

Re: Norwegian K98s

I believe that the 1903 Springfield barrels have been used to rebarrel Mausers to 30-06 in other countries. I am wondering if the Norwegians did the same.

Re: Reloading for the K31

I use 44 grains of Reloader-15 under a 175 grain 7.62 M-118 "sniper/match" bullet. It is my go to load for 800 yard shooting and matches the sights of my M1911 long rifle.
