    I've corresponded with Larry Racine on more than one occasion about this very subject. He was very helpful and he never failed to reply to my inquiries. There are other outfits in the world like Hammereli rifle who have rebarreled K31s up to...

    I'm a member over on the Swiss Rifle forum and I don't remember ever seeing this one either. Of course, I wasn't really looking for anything like this since joining there. It's gratifying to know that there are others doing stuff like this too. ...

    Thank you Jneidbalski: Writing articles for gun mags is one of many dreams of mine that will most likely go unfulfilled. I'll eventually accomplish some of my dreams but not all of them. This K31 project is one of the small ones I guess. If...

    In the back of my mind I knew it would be possible. I actually had more of a shotgun-type of pump action in mind but this just confirms the possibility. The way I've dreamed of doing it would require the fabrication of custom stock with the...

    Hi EDG: If you were one of those who felt talked down to I hope you will accept my apology. It was never my intent to talk down to anyone. HollowPoint

    Thanks for the kind word samari46; I don't know about a semi-auto but I have had thoughts of making one into a pump-action. The K31 action is not to far off from a pump action shotgun's action so it's not beyond the realm of possibility. I've...

    HollowPoint replied to a thread Which 6.5? in Factory Rifles
    Most loading manuals list these calibers with 24" barrel or less; with the exception of the 284. The 6.5x284 is generally listed with a 26" or longer barrel. This difference can translate into the higher velocities that make the other 6.5...

    If this is true, the following group of seven new pics should mean that you don't have to spend to much of your valuable time reading more of my ramblings. The home made peep sight is a bit on the bulky side compared to store bought units but, no...

    HollowPoint replied to a thread Which 6.5? in Factory Rifles
    According to my load manuals all three of the 6.5 cartridges have basically the same ballistics values for given bullet weights. Depending on barrel length, none of the above mentioned 6.5 chamberings really excels over the other. Heck, in some...

    Someone mentioned 2400 and magnum primers. A couple of years back I was using 18.6 grains of 2400 in my 7.5x55 K31 Swiss and doing very well. I happened to be reloading another batch of plinking rounds when I realized I had run out of large...

    Last week I got a little free time in between jobs. It's those moments of time I spend waiting for incoming customers to show up for their appointments or waiting for those same customers to pick up their cars. Anyway, I still had that spare K31...

    I have a 6.5mm Lyman mold inbound that I plan to do some powder coating experiment with. One of the things I've wondered about powder coating rifle bullets is the difficulty of applying the powder evenly around the circumference of the bullet. ...

    If it cycles fine, shoots fine and there's no signs of excessive pressures I don't see any problems. Are you getting any leading or powder coat fouling in the bore just ahead of the chamber? From your description you most likely are not. If you...
