    That is a cool factoid, Dutchman. That has to make it the oldest military rifle still in service. I believe the 7.62x54R cartridge is still in use in some roles with the Russian military, but not the Mosin-Nagant. I lived in Sweden. I was...

    There is no substitute for Leverevolution. Its formulation is unique and delays peak pressure to essentially overcome brass weakness, delivering about 100 -150 FPS over max loads with jacketed bullets. The good news is that there are far better...

    This is a good point for standard Swedish Mauser barrels with a throat designed for the original 160 grs RN loading, but I believe the CG 63 was designed for the 140 grs loading, thus the slower twist rate. In which case, it should have a less...

    The basic rules apply and should guide your effort: size to slightly over groove, and match BHN to MV and intended use with the goal of as soft as possible - as hard as necessary. 12 BHN dropped and air cooled is absolutely fine in this capacity,...

    The rimless cartridge was a solution to box magazine feeding issues. There are no such issues with a single shot. There are however issues with extraction of a rimless cartridge in a single shot. Finally, headspacing on a rimmed cartridge is quite...

    Thanks very much for a great review thus far. Look forward to more as you get acquainted with it. I too am a Handi fan and saddened by their demise. Never got into Contenders. We live in the age of the $500 sub-MOA bolt rifle. They may not be...

    WRB, thank you for good advice. The sensible thing would be to buy those Federal slugs. The rational thing might be to get some actual 410 slugs from Ballistic Products for which there is load data... Hopefully, I can bring myself to do one or the...

    ^^^^^^At rate of use, buying a box of .410 sells when you need them would be the smartest. But, if this is by way of the "yeah, I know, but I really just want to make .410 brass shells" justification, then I have no argument whatsoever. Options...

    BB I know you know quite a bit about the 410 slug game, thanks for chiming in. The little Rossi is choked Mod and the bullet in shot cup will squeeze through the choke - I checked that in advance due to the concern you mention. A 36 cal round ball...

    An excellent idea. I had JES Rebore take one out to 35 Krag for me. In addition to a an original Krag, I have a Ruger #3 in 30-40 and in a strong action like that, you have the versatility of a cartridge that will deliver 308 performance and eek...

    Extending the brass life of a 30-30 case by doing a 30-30 AI is gilding the lilly. I have cases that I have fired 15 times. With periodic neck annealing, case life is almost indefinite. The main "benefit" of an AI is more powder capacity by...

    So from the files titled, "And then, for no particular reason..." I thought I would make up a rather silly thing: a 444 case with a 125 grs Barry's flat nose plated .358 bullet in a Ballistic Products 1/2oz short shot cup. Components were: ...
