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.

Unspeakable Caliber

#1 Post by SWIHARTMARK » Tue Jun 06, 2017 6:54 pm

I'm watching for those of you who speak the unspeakable. You know who you are. Hint, the Finns used to throw them away and now they fetch high dollar, go figure.

Best Regards,

Mark

You both have spoken the unspeakable and even managed to show pictures.... What am I do you with the two of you? The unspeakable caliber only brings logistical nightmares and unhappy Finns. Go forth and sin no more.

Best Regards,

Mark

BTW, since it isn't exactly supported real well reloading wise, I call it unspeakable. I do hear they shoot better than most 6.5mm's.

If anyone has reloading data for 7.35 I'm all ears. IF I ever get my custom case length guage from Lee I ordered 2 months ago I might load some one day :|

I still have not crossed into the shadows, but I will if a reasonable example tempts me.
SWIHARTMARK, if 7.35 is unspeakable, what about 10.4 ? :)

Stuff; Some of it is Italian, some of it shoots.

I've an 80/87 that managed to keep the full length barrel, although the stock was, well, . . . sporterized? As I happen to have an 80/87/15 that has a damaged magazine but a great stock; if I'm ever home long enough I plan on a careful resurrection of the 80/87 to it's pre battle of Adwa glory :)

Unfortunately, My Vetterli has been sporterized long ago-Barrel shortened about 3-4", original sight re-mounted, and stock shortened, but it looks good as is, so I'll probably leave it as is. Whoever did it had a good eye for proportion, the wood looks right for the new barrel length. Didn't have time to do any loading today, have to wait till Sunday at least, or next week.
