That's an interesting looking rifle. Who made it?

Re: Swedish M41B ... Update! It arrived

Calfed, my bro said his load was 43-44 grains of H4350 under a 129-grn Hornady spire point. Said he shot the OCW method @ 200-yds to set the final charge, then played w/ seating depth (as he OCW method advises anyway).

Re: Why P51 was Faster than the BF 109

Good analysis of it all (design, engine, amrament & use) here, but compared to the superior Focke-Wulf. It correlates with what I remember my Dad telling me (335 Squadron - 4th Fighter Group - Debden, England; an ‘Eagle Squadron’ volunteer, volunteered for the Brits before the US entered the war & f...
