    Tx By God: I have a few 93-94s made by both FN and DWM. I believe all are maked Brazil and all are set up for a square bottom bolt. The "94s" I have are identical to 93s, but are maked 94 I believe either for the year of manufacture or a contract...

    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...

    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...

    Another Greek Mannlicher-Schoenauer action followed me home this weekend. This one was made by Steyr (1930) the other is a Breda (1927). Has one one attempted to chamber one in anything but 6.5MS? I know there is a .22/6.5 MS wildcat and they...

    Why not take your favorite powders and start low and work up your loads. You have enough reloading experience to do that don't you? Just watch your case web area and although not a good pressure sign, watch your primers. When you get high in a...

    From what I've read the Type I had conventional rifling not the gain twist so it would be interesting to see how one shoots. Maybe like a 6.5 Swede huh?

    I think the 45 autorim is a better candidate for this, but of course you can't use that in your rifle. I say this because you can seat the bullet out further on my Autorims. You can get the 45acp and Autorim pretty close to 45 Colt loads and...
