    I'd say your rifle likes the 12.4 gr load looks like time to try a few +- .3 gr at a time, then take the best to 100 yd mark. Those Swedes are some beautiful rifles, good job.
    Hell, I was there!

    Klaus,

    Very Well Done! The M96 Swede is one of my favorite arms. It seems you found the right load. My M96 has a threaded muzzle and now wears a 2-inch muzzlebreak to protect the threads and it looks "Cool!"
