    My half brother had a Saginaw carbine in his M-3 light scout tank a `Stewart` in WW 2. He said it reminded him of his home here in Michigan. He shot quite a few `glass rabbits` as he called empty wine bottles while in France with the carbine.Robert

    Bought a `BUBBAed` 98 Mauser a few years back from a pawn shop. I would stop in every so often and look at it. It had been `camo` painted with an enamel paint, most of the metal and all the Mil. butchered stock. Over the course of a year of...

    Paul, you are thinking like a jacketed bullet shooter. That bullet with ACWW will perform just fine for you. Remember, it is the nose that is making the wound channel. I've used the same bullet with ACWW on both deer and elk.

    I had a Lebel. One of the hardest kicking rifles I've owned. I do not think I would care to shoot the machine gun loads. I found out after I got rid of that rifle, a box of cartridges was worth more to collectors than the rifle was.
