New mwmbwe with reloading questions
Cool site, have been reading the topics and enjoyed the comments and advice. Have been collecting for years and have recently gotten into milsurps and decided to get into reloading.
I have a Q about reloading for Swedes, so I hope this is the correct place to ask.
I will be reloading for the CG63, M96 and the M38, and so far have found the most recommended powder is the IMR 4350, but have also read comments that because the M38 has a shorter barrel, maybe I should be using a different powder. So my Q is, if this is so, what would be the recommended powder? I would like to stay with IMR as it is more readily available where I live.
I will also be reloading for the Swiss K31 down the road once I get used to reloading.

Hello to everyone in the Milsurps community. I have just recently taken an interest in older military firearms and acquired several SKS and Mosin rifles. I am anxiously awaiting the arrival of my 03FFL, which I recently applied for. I carried an M16 during my time in the U.S. Army, but I find older firearms much more interesting. Thanks for reading.

new member from Virginia - hello there!
My screen name is "adam lee", but you can just go ahead and call me Adam.
I won't tell you the other names my wife calls me from time to time.
I am really glad to have found this resource for milsurp gun knowledge on the web - I look forward to learning and sharing for the common good!
Here in Virginia, we just got over a week and a half early summer heat wave.
• Sizzled to 102 Sunday, breaking the record from 1993.
• Scorched to 105 Saturday, shattering the record of 102 and coming within a degree of the all-time record of 106, set 7/20/1913 and 8/6/1918.
• We have had 4 consecutive days of 100+.
• We have had 11 consecutive days of 95+.
Today, it's finally settled down to a rainy mid-80's. Why does all this matter? I might finally be able to return to more gunsmithing work on my 200+ year old fowler project!
Might even get another shot at tweaking my M39 Finn!

Army MSG (ret) Finally gets an enfield
Bailed my brother out of jail. I get an 303 Enfield for the bail bond $426. I paid to much! What do I have? I love everything about the south but the damn gnats.

RE: Japanese POWs in the Philippiines WWII
I saw somebody asking about Japanese POW's and a reference to his grandfather. I can't find the direct thread now but maybe he will see it. My grandfather was a Chaplain with the 200th Coast Artillery Unit and died as a Japanese POW after surviving the Bataan March.
Below is a link with information about a film project I am working on based on previously unpublished letters and journal entries.
