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.

Venezuelan 7x57

#1 Post by shoggoth80 » Tue Aug 13, 2019 12:34 am

Hey all. First time I've seen this in a few years. First time I bought any. I kinda wish I would have bought a bunch back when, but I heard horror stories... so these are more collection than for shooting. I may light off a one of the two boxes I picked up. But hey... I've got 7mm clips if nothing else. Lol. 36...1936 I'm assuming based on what I know of stamps.

Love the box... WIll not 8mm Mauser strippers work with 7mm??? Love the box..

What were the horror stories you heard??? I can not believe FN ammo can be that bad.

I believe 8mm clips will work, though there's supposed to be differences. Might just be how the clip is constructed? I've heard of hangfires, and failure to fire just in general. It's pretty old ammo at this point, but I've shot Austrian ammo of similar vintage.

Nothing wrong with FN 33 7x57 Mauser other than the primers are sometimes dud's.
I have a like new ( sans a few stock dents from handling) Venezuelan 7x57 rifle and it shoots the FN ammo very well.

To old to fight and to old to run, a Jar head will just shoot and be done with you.
