    Take a guess at my new project

    Well managed to pick up a nice new to me toy off gunbroker for $250 to my door so I couldn't resist another price of old iron. Tasking my first stab at cartridge reforming with this one. So far I've not doing so hot with only 15 out of 20 cases not crushed. However this has definitely been a fun project to do.

    The 41 Swiss cartridge in my Model 78 Vetterli are just about my favorite shootin' combination. Just love the sound of the action being worked.
