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.

Pet loads for 8x56R and m95/30 "stutzen"?

So, anybody got a favorite handload for the m95 stutzen? I've had pretty good results with Varget and Hornady's 205-grain PSPs, but want to broaden my base (and develop a top-shelf round for hog hunts).

Re: Remember that gunsmith-counterbored Venezuelan mauser?

Shot this target today for the 50-yard "postal" match, using those fat 154-grainers from Buffalo Arms. Pleased with the result.

Re: Spring/Summer 50 yard Milsurp Shoot.

So, I went to the range today with my Venezuelan Heartbreaker (link: https://www.surplusrifleforum.com/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=372 ) and a couple of other 7x57 Mausers. Weather was muggy and 76 degrees. Negligible wind. After finishing the work with the others (testing handloads using 175-grain RNSPs), ...

Re: Spring/Summer 50 yard Milsurp Shoot.

I would like to shoot my Venezuelan heartbreaker in this match, if you'll allow it. (Read about it here: https://www.surplusrifleforum.com/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=372 ). Now, I did have the Vene counterbored (as detailed in the thread referenced above), but it's out of the bedded stock and back into the...

Re: Any Interest in a Sporters / Hunters Postal Match?

Maybe the course of fire should be 2 off hand and 3 from a supported position? Or maybe keep it at ten rounds, 8 supported (field positions) and two offhand? I'm spoiled, I guess, by Alabama's long deer season, but I very rarely shoot at game offhand. If I can't find a tree to brace on, or take a k...

Re: Lee FCD for 8x56R at MidwayUSA

That’s odd. When I bought the die set the FCD was included. Glad you got one though. Reloading for M95’s is handy. They kick hard so you can alleviate that by dropping the charge a bit. When I bought my set, maybe 5 years back, it came with just the sizing die and the seating die. Couldn't find an ...

Lee FCD for 8x56R at MidwayUSA

I had given up looking for a Lee FCD for my Steyr M95 (Lee doesn't offer them on their website) . . . and then I got a marketing email from Midway informing me that they had said die on sale for about $12. Yes, I jumped on it. Shipping was $4.99 to my location. Thought inquiring minds might want to ...

Advice on annealing--and YouTube posts to evaluate

So, I've been reloading for a few years, but have yet to take on annealing brass. I've read a lot of internet lore--often conflicting--about the process, and think I've identified the basics needed for safe, affordable, manageable, and effective brass annealing. I went on YouTube and pulled down a c...
