Re: 7.62x54r chamber insert to shoot 7.62x25?

I think generally inserts are considered not safe. The risk of them being extracted without knowing is too high...unless made permanent somehow These inserts are single shot sub-caliber units MADE to be ejected. These allow you to shoot a pistol round in a high power rifle as the insert is the dime...

Re: 303 ammo listed

Yes Corrosive and mixed Mk7 and Mk8z ball maybe 60+ years old, and stored how / where? 52 cents / rd PLUS freight?

You can buy new Wolf steel case for much less, and Prvi reloadable boxer primed ammo for only a bit more. No sale!

Re: Group pester to PPU for 7,62x45 brass and or ammo

Note sent. I have contacted Sellier & Bellot and Prvi both in the past on this round and 5.45x39, and I have always received a "not interested at this time" response.

You have to think they would sell as much as 7.35 Carcano and 8 Lebel, no?

Re: Vintage Prvi?

Back in the 1980s and 90s Prvi was making contract runs for both Hansen Cartridge Co and Century. Some had custom Headstamps and some came in with the nny headstamp. The green primer paint was common on Prvi commercial ammunition.

Re: 7.62 OFV 86

It is Boxer/NonCorrosive. Quality may be suspect on that era OFV mfg. The 1970s production is OK as the line was set up by Winchester/Olin I'm that decade and some QC people/procedures seem to be in place. The 1990s and later OFV imported is REAL BAD ammo. I can not say for sure where your 1986 qual...

Re: Astra 600/43

I also have a MRP Astra 600. A great shooter. Last year I bought a 9mm barrel that some European gunsmith lined to .30 Luger. That barrel looks like nice work and shoots great too.
