Re-22 for Swedish Ljungman
Posted: Sun Apr 08, 2018 10:22 am
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 screw I installed is removing that problem from the equation. Are there any other possible known issues to be concerned about if using R-22 in the Ljungman? I’m using either Hornady 147 VLD’s, Sierra 143 MK’s or Nosler 140 OTBT match bullets. I also have R-15, Varget and IMR 4064 on hand that seem to perform quite well. I’d just like to settle on one loading to match the M41’s for use in both the bolt and semi auto. R-22 seems to be the best choice at the moment. Please advise.
