Well this board has so much knowlege ..... and so i need some help..
I got these in a trade and ended up with 185 grain spitzer .3235 soft point remington bulk 8mm mauser bullets (yea i Know the J-word but i have a 7 gallon bucketful of the damn things and no i do not want to sell them and i have a mauser project too)
SOoooo.....having a Mosin- Nagant with a 312 bore and a .314 lee push thru sizer first i tried beeswax and had to drill it and knock it out with a brass rod LOL so then i tried lanolin it was hard in my lee press then i went to my rockchucker....WAY easier ...OK 10 of them are now sized @ .3143 I bet my Nagant will like these!!!! but what would be a better sizing lube ? if they shoot I want to do some more
and after the resize can they still be used on deer and elk??? or will they be more prone to jacket separation?
as far as load data does i was looking @ 190 grain starting loads and work up from there.
