    Yes parts are hard to find for the Swiss beauties. Rock Solid has some neat after market parts for them like 10 round magazine, new firing pin, and mainspring.

    I just recently started drawing down .338 Hot core 200 gr to load in the 8x56R, 46 grs IMR 4064 gives almost identical velocity as the Nazi ammo, but with an extreme spread of 1/4 that of the surplus ammo. Five of the surp gives 2285 fps with ES...

    I used WSF for similar velocity and accuracy in the 30/06 with 200 gr cast. I still use SR4756 for RB loads in 12 ga, although I haven't shot or loaded any in a few years. Alcan AL5 was similar also but always left unburnt flakes, and good luck...
