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.

Ethiopian 30-06

#1 Post by Hippycrowe » Tue Feb 26, 2019 4:19 pm

Here are some pics of the Ethiopian 30-06 ammo I bought it on clips(not very nice ones) and on 1919 links. I pulled a few and all were boxer and the ones I shot were as accurate as any of my other surplus in my 1917 Enfield

I am tempted. It does look good indeed.

If you take a shell holder out of a reloader die set that it fits and put it in a vise by the base(don't over tighten) facedown and break the belt up into 30 or so round belts put the extractor ring in the holder and pull down on the link only, it goes quite quick to delink 250 rounds. The m1919 links are easy compared to m60/m240 links.

I never thought of that I have 3 or 4 1 gallon bags full of 1919 links

When I got my 1919, I quickly went to giving up on reloading cloth belts and just use metal links (Even though cloth belts are beautiful to watch).. I was able to get some money back selling the belt loader.. I never regretted it...

The family and I would set in front of the TV and reload the belts in a very short time..

When I got my m53, I sold of the belt loader without even a regret. those belts are so easy to reload.

When I got the 50 cal, I was typing up the e-bay listing to sell the linker that came with it until I started working with the belts.. You can not get by without a linker-delinker with that little beastie.

The best loader I ever played with is the Browning.. If you get 3 people working it, 1 cranking and 2 filling you can keep it going forever non stop.. Or until you run out of belts or ammo...
