    turtlezx, Yes, it was a milsurp propellant, and long ago it was relatively inexpensive and came in 2 different burn rates that I know of: H 110/W296 and AA #9. Unless you can find it at a screaming bargain (Pat's Reloading, Jeff Bartlett, et. al),...

    map55b replied to a thread Mauser Question in Military Rifles
    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...

    Sounds like fun! I have a copy of Ellis Browns book if you need any reference info. My mentor has built a bunch of rifles on shotgun actions. Normally he uses a donor barrel to build a mono block. Oh: I also have a Green Mountain 44-40 blank...

    Sound like you mike have a 1894 Brazilian contract action. The Spanish also made 93s without thumb cuts. Does it look something like this?

    I never meant to imply that a Lee Loader assembled inaccurate ammunition. Quite the contrary--my 30-06 and 223 ammo so loaded in the early days of my refilling hobby did some VERY accurate shooting for me. I was pretty happy with their ammo output...

    ammohead replied to a thread 6.5 BlowMore in Factory Rifles
    There are 4 6.5 SWEDEmores in the family and they hunt. I find it funny that 6.5 swede load info is mild because everyone knows that the model 96 mauser cannot handle the same pressures as the creedmore is rated for. Yet kimber rebarreled several...

    Little more than a week ago I bought a CZ 612 pump sshotgun. 12ga 3 1/2" chamber camoed with 28" bbl. Came with 5 choke tubes, choke tube wrench and a shim set for castoff I guess. $449.99 Good for 2 Canadians so far. The 3.5" loads get your...

    ammohead replied to a thread 9.6x53 Lancaster in Factory Rifles
    With a .4055" diameter boolit, performance should be quite similar to the 405 JES. Finding someone stateside to rebore your 1895 to a .4055 groove diameter may prove difficult. Is the 348 win not doable for a rebore?

    I have sold off and traded off more than a few guns and will still do so. The one I wish I had back is a Model 28 Smith 357 I thought was a little too heavy. Three that haunt me are an H&K P7 M8 squeeze cock 9mm I just could not come up with the...

    ...............I will have to admit that these rifles, (just like the Swede Ljungman) are somewhat classified as "Clubs'. :-) They're a rifle chambered for a 'Full powered' cartridge, but are not necessarily, sleek or svelte. I suppose they'ed be...

    One of the articles I found states that Russia has unusual laws for owning rifled firearms. The oval bore starts out round and the oval rifling/twist is only for a short distance at the muzzle end. This catagorizes the firearm as a smoothbore and is...

    The Ruger LCR series seem to be the Glock Of Revolvers. Not elegant, eminently practical, and likely the Shape Of The Future. An LCR in 22 LR or 327 Federal with 4" barrel and adjustable sights would make a very fine "Kit Gun". I suspect such...

    I have a Marlin 1894 JM in 44mag I bought new in 1998. As of late it jams up something fierce on me every time I try to load anything through it. Very frustrating. I think I might have to buy a new carrier and install that to fix her. I miss...

    It won't take her long before that original Lee Loader gets REAL OLD, if she is feeding a 1911A1-series pistol. The opposite extreme--becoming a Dillonista--might be a bridge too far as well. My preferences settle out somewhere between...

    Even Midway has a bunch of their rimfire ammo in stock, and that wasn't generally the case before the shortage. I'm seeing a lot on the market now for .04-.06 a round.
