    Guys, its the HEAD DIAMETER that really counts.
    GONRA knows authentic 7.63 mm Mauser cases can stick in 7.62 mm Tokarev chambers.

    Gotta hava pyle of both specimens (1930's, WWII era) from yer catridge collection to measure.
    You can also prove almost anything you want if you grab individual sloppy manufacture factory WW II specimens
    and some post war commercial specimens designed to "chamber in anything".

    Well, I agree completely with you GONRA as my CZ-52 is just a cheap Chinese made pistol with a notch for a site in the back and a pin in the front for a site. So it fits into the "sloppy manufacture factory WW II specimens" and is definately not a precise, long range pistol like the well engineered and precision manufactured Mauser C-96 with a leaf site having a range all the way up to 1000 meters. So, this year I am rushing to reload some ammo for the 30 Mauser and hope to get a shot or two at a deer across those soy bean fields at maybe several hundred meters. Because I am confident it will do it.
