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.

I have about 2/3''s of what we need on hand but there are a few rounds we are short. Decided to put a "HELP ME" post out there and see if anyone has a round or two from the MIA list to help out.

8X50 (8mm original Mannlicher round)
223

On Hand:

7.62X54
7.62x53 Finnish
7.62X25
7.62X39

I may be able to help with 3, but are you asking for live rounds or dummy rounds?

Live or dummy rounds, right now I have live rounds for the ones I have. Wife and I are discussing with a reloading buddy the possibility of safing the rounds.

The reason for the display is I have a lot of visitors that ask what the different calibers are similar to. This way they can have a visual reference of what the different caliber rounds look like, for the weapons I own. Heck even my SIL has no ideal what the majority of the rounds look like.

So it makes a great teaching tool/display.
