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.

Re: 1903 Carl Gustaf still kicking butt!

First, I want to thank everyone for their helpful comments with regard to this post. I've been reviewing my load data I worked up many years ago, and agree my load exceeds the Hodgdon published max. I've been shooting this load for hunting and targets in excess of twenty five years now with outstand...

Re-22 for Swedish Ljungman

My question is concerning using the Reloader-22 powder loads in my ag42B that duplicate the M41 Swedish surplus ammo. These loads do quite nicely in my Carl G. 1903 M96/38. I know R-22 is generally considered unsuitable for the semi-auto due to high port pressures, but I figure the gas regulator scr...

Re: 1903 Carl Gustaf still kicking butt!

Husqvarna 96's were produced from 42 to 44 in which only 20,000 were ever produced, and I have one, #'s matching, and YES I am bragging !............. Glad you got one. I got one after having my CG 96/38 a while. Ended up selling it. Probably shouldn’t have. But my 96/38 keeps making me happy. And ...

Re: 1903 Carl Gustaf still kicking butt!

I understand the IMR data. I worked up to my current load and psi signs are good. They are at the upper edge but still looks good. This is an excellent hunt load but I am currently working on a Swedish surplus m41 duplicate load. My CG is one that was converted to the 38. I wished there was a way to...

Re: 1903 Carl Gustaf still kicking butt!

In anticipation for taking my Swedish Mauser to the 400 yard line I need to do some site adjustment. I currently have my vasteras rear site set at 250 meters which is the lowest setting. With my load using a Sierra 120 grain soft point bullet traveling 2800 feet a second I have POI roughly 2 inches ...

Thanks. These old Swedes really were the cream of the Mauser crop. Still are for that matter.

1903 Carl Gustaf still kicking butt!

My rifle range requires us to qualify each rifle at 100 yards to be able to take it out to the 400 yard range. This involves shooting three shots inside a two inch circle on an official target with no other shots on the paper. I am SO close. I shot this group yesterday with my standard worked up hun...

Re: First range session after 25 year absence. WOW!!

Another update on my Ljungman testing. After getting the gas regulator screw installed correctly and switching out the front site for a +1, I dialed in my gas screw for some M41 (‘87) ammo. I still had the round nose M96 ammo rear sight installed so my group with 100m site set was about 4” low at 10...

Re: Ljungman adjustable gas system, another option

It’s been a while but thought I’d post an update and ask another question concerning the gas regulator. I purchased a thread tap and deepened the threads to my gas cleanout screw hole which allowed my Long adjuster screw to go down far enough to completely cut off the gas flow. I fine tuned the scre...

Re: Light weight projectiles in C96/38 or Ljungman?

Yes, bullet jump would be an issue. I typically don’t seat any less than at least the same as the bullet diameter. So .264 for these bullets. They also don’t like to feed reliably in the Swedes. I kept having to push the bullet down from bumping into the face of the chamber. They kept popping up bef...

Re: Light weight projectiles in C96/38 or Ljungman?

Here are my test results trying the Sierra 85 grain HP in my 1903 C.G. C96/38. Rear micrometer sight set to lowest range of 250 meters. Front sight +1.5. Range is 100 yards. 63* F 6 o’clock hold on target. IMR 3031, 41.7 grains. 5@ 3-3/4” ( this was the listed accurate load in the book ) Apparently ...

Re: Light weight projectiles in C96/38 or Ljungman?

I have the C96/38 short rifle as well. I am referencing the Sierra manual also and see the 3031 data. I think I have a little of that left and will try that load. Many years back I worked up hundreds of loads with 100, 120 and 140 grain bullets and usually went a grain or so higher than the max list...

Re: Light weight projectiles in C96/38 or Ljungman?

I think I was using 42-43 gr of H4895, but can't remember for sure. I know this load is in one of my reloading manuals. —Let me know so I can load some up and test velocity My best load with most of my Swede bolt rifles is still 140 gr Nosler CC bullets with RL 22. —Years ago I shot a five shot gro...

If you give me the recipe you ended up using with these bullets I can work my way up to it and use my new labradar to tell you what the velocity is . My rifle is a Carl Gustav 1903 C96 short rifle
