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.

7mm Mauser ammo info request

#1 Post by 72 usmc » Wed Apr 18, 2018 12:45 pm

Has anyone fired any of this FN 1936 7mm Mauser ammunition? It was $30 a box of 100 so I got two boxes just for the bullets, but has any one fired any of this stuff- does it have dead primers, case splits, hang fires? I am keeping one for display. All we have is snow in WI, 8 inches on Sunday and another 5" today expected, so I am not going to get out to the range till its gone. Libertytreecollectors has some of the later stuff, but at a crazy price $75+ shipping almost a $100 a box??????? One would assume its from Venezuela. Anyone fire this stuff in your 7mm Chilean or Brazilian mausers? I am hoping it's good ammo so I can buy more. Cheeper than reloading. Nice corrosive stuff.

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

That older FN 7mm is Some of SAMCOs ammo imports. The 1969-1970 FN 7x57mm 140gr FMJBT was outstanding. Noncorrosive, sure fire and accurate. I won our NM Milsurps 800yard match last month with the 69 FN ammo (1908 Mauser).

Let us know how the RN ammo shoots for you.
