    Dumb or lucky or both; I never clean between shots. I use bore butter or Crisco soaked patches and .530 rb in my .54 Plains Pistol. By the time It's badly fouled I'm ready to shoot something else. I use 50 hrs of PyroP or 3f- whatever I have. I get...

    Yes, I meant my wordplay that I reused from nother forum. I first heard the BM referred to that way a couple of years ago and although not PC- it is funny (as long as you're not a ballerina) Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G930A using Tapatalk

    Think of Linotype if you've ever shot it. It's very brittle to say the least. An example is shooting it at steel, like gongs, sihouettes, and when it hits them it shatters into little pieces. This is mainly because of the amount of antimony in it....

    This is from a Tokarve html. Prior to the First World War, the 7.6325mm Mauser C96 pistol gained in popularity worldwide. In 1908, the Tsarist army placed the C96 on a list of approved sidearms that officers could purchase at their own expense...

    What happened is the pressure blew the case and dumped most of it down the magazine well, much as what AR's do. If the gas had been more contained the results would have been much more disasterous. I'm glad that you are okay and I'll bet the you...

    Does the 94 Brazilian have a square bottom bolt face? It sounds like a German made 93 - if there's any crest left you can see what country it was made for. I might be wrong but I think the majority of 1893 production went to Spain in 7x57 and...

    I read somewhere long ago that the cartridge must be based on the 6.5x54MS case as the rotors are specific. There was a list of wildcats from .224 to .308 all based on the 6.5 MS. Where do you find all these actions? Thomas

    Hello Samari46, This is correct. Frank De Haas comments that one is best to leave them in 6.5x54 MS, but you could use the wildcat 22 version. He also states that the 7x57 is possible. A friend has done all three, but said the 7x57 was a real...

    Kimber just got away with it is all. The Swede action was never designed for the pressures the 6.5 Creebmoor reaches or what the 308W can reach. You'll get away with for awhile, but someday it may come back and hit you in the hind end!

    If you measure the lugs on a 93-96 you will see they are quite large and offer plenty of strength. Gas handling is an issue, but many armories made improvements to deal with this. Below is what I do on all my 93-96 projects, if they do not already...
