  1. Anyone want free .45 reloads for the components?

    Long shot but what the heck....in

  3. Winter Warrior 2020 - 2021 Postal Match for Iron Sight Military Rifles

    It was a Cabela's pickup a few years ago....still packed with Finnish grease and tar under the stock. It was a pain in the a$$ to get it cleaned up! But, on the plus side, I don't think it had been fired since leaving Finland because the bore's beautiful.
  4. Argentine and Swedish Mauser Reloading

    Haven't loaded much for my 1891 Argentine but one load that showed promise was the 174gr Hornady RN #3130 over 39.5gr IMR4064. It's a pretty mild load but it shot quite well out of my Argentine. I haven't messed with 6.5x55 too much but for my Swede I run 140gr Match bullets (usually Hornady)...
  5. Winter Warrior 2020 - 2021 Postal Match for Iron Sight Military Rifles

    Post 3 of 3.... 1942 M91 'B' Barrel Looks like 97-2x. This rifle has a mint bore and is a pleasure to shoot....it's more than capable of holding the 10 ring all day long despite my couple of fliers. Maybe I'll take it out again to see if I can get all 10s.
  6. Winter Warrior 2020 - 2021 Postal Match for Iron Sight Military Rifles

    Post 2 of 3... 1914 Finn-capture M91 (Izhevsk) Looks like 92-1x. This rifle has a pretty dark, worn bore. The biggest problem is that it has a really heavy trigger, like 10+ lbs (maybe more). The hits in the 8 rings were a result of my flinching. I bet if I did another run with this...
  7. Winter Warrior 2020 - 2021 Postal Match for Iron Sight Military Rifles

    Was able to get out to the range this past Tuesday. Truck said it was exactly 32F, though it felt about 15F with all the wind up at the range. My plan is to get all of my Finnish Mosins out at least once this season. Once I do, who knows, maybe I'll take some other 'Winter' rifles...
  8. Enfield bold head question

    That's what I do for my 2 Enfields. My No. 1 Mk. III has a much tighter chamber than my No. 4 Mk. I, so I keep my brass separate for each rifle to get the most case life that I can.
  9. Guns you find cool just not at their price point

    The Borchardt pistol (basically the design that pre-dated the Luger). A very interesting, 1st generation self-loading pistol. I'd love to own one someday but, despite its rarity, I don't know if I could ever justify spending 10's of thousands of dollars on one.
  10. Winter Warrior 2020 - 2021 Postal Match for Iron Sight Military Rifles

    Damn fine shooting sir. I've been wanting to get out to the range now that we have snow on the ground, but life has been crazy lately. Hopefully there'll still be some snow this weekend when I get some free time
  11. What did you do in the reloading room recently?

    That's my exact go-to 115gr load....it's a good plinking/range load. Like you, I've had zero issues with it across multiple handguns.
  12. Reloading for an 1895 Mauser

    Any 7x57 data should work fine for an 1895 Mauser, though I'd caution against using max charges. For my old Mausers I tend to stay near the starting charges....better safe than sorry with these old rifles!
  13. Primer Source

    I'd be in for primers (all types, though my LRP stash is the lowest right now), and I have no problem pre-paying as well if it goes that route
