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.

Mark I would suggest that you contact Lee about a proper shell holder for the brass cases. The one that came with my Lee 7.65 French long dies is a perfect fit to the Starline brass. Also using .32 auto dies just doesn't cut it and the same with the shell holder. One might experiment with an old .30...
Ok so I have been loading these new cases. First thing is to full length size them in a die made for the 7.65. Standard small pistol primer and 3.5 gr. Unique gives positive function and the cases show standard pressure signs. The bullet is the Hornady .309 diameter 90 gr. HP. Now some older loads I...

During WW1 the Serbian Army fought on the Salonika front. They were armed and supplied by the French Army. They kept the rifles in the Yugoslavian Army till the Mausers were made in enough numbers. That this is very likely where your rifle came from.
Well I received my order of the 7.65 brass. The cases are in great looking condition. I compared them by eye to an original French made round and the cased is identical except the extractor grove is a small amount bigger but the rim is the same. I tried empty cases in the chambers of both of my pist...
Now if you mount it on the stock then take so electrical tape and cover the snap on the inside of the pouch. This will prevent the snap from scratching and digging into the wood of the stock.
The clips were designed and production started on them but it was slowed down by the end of the war. None were loaded with ammo other then the testing phases of them. None were issued to troops till well into the Korean war.
72 usmc, Starline had only thought about making this case and had not intended to make it for quite sometime. But Mr. Long made a contract with Starline to make it for him. This way Starline does not have to hold onto it till it's all sold and can in the future if Mr. Long should say OK, they can th...
I managed to get in on a group buy of 7.65 dies sets from Lee. Nice dies and work fine. Now I have the brass coming, bullets coming and I already have power and primers waiting. So in about 2 to 3 weeks I should be ready to load and go shooting. I will let you know how the brass is when I get it.
The only company that I am aware of to make this brass before was Bertram out of Australia. Terrible brass at it's best. This is brand new made to proper dimension brass. I was told the trial pieces worked perfectly. That is all I know about this new brass. It will be a few weeks before he has the b...
There is a man who has contracted with Starline brass to produce new 7.65 French Long brass. He is selling the brass in bags of 250 cases for $110 delivered. This is much better then having to make due with 32 S&W long with the rims turned down and an extractor grove cut. The gentleman is Hugh Long ...
4 inches at 100 yards was the max acceptable size group. Most carbines would do 2 inches new at 100 yards. The carbines were designed for combat not a super accurate rifle. Figure 1 inch of bad guy at any distance out to 300 yards as the maximum effective range. There is a military target that you c...

The screw may be longer but it will work find till you find one you like. There is nothing for it to rub against and as long as it is tight you can shoot your rifle. But one thing I think I notice is there is no N marked on the top of the receiver at the barrel or on the barrel?
DON'T waste your time or money with the Inland or the Auto Ordnance. Both are problematic at best. In fact Auto Ordnance makes many of the parts used by the so called new Inland. Quality control by AO is hit or miss at best. This has carried over to Inland too. Look for a good used Plainfield carbin...

When IAI started making carbines, they made the receivers and then used surplus USGI parts. But like may other commercial carbines the surplus parts ran out and they had to make their own. Well like all the others before them the quality went down hill and the demand became very low. As sales were s...
