    Doubt if there are any or more in South Africa. Most of the rifles were commandeered in both world wars to serve in the military or just to prevent rebellion. So they would have been absorbed in...

    Over penetration is why you don't find 7.62x25 pistols in the West. Automag 357 and 44. There are many wildcat necked cartridges but there is little demand. There are some necked revolver...

    Post #2. Note the many off centre firing pin marks on the primers. I found my No 1 Mk 3* was like that and never had the slightest problem in shooting.

    Modern? My first shots were in 1987 IIRC. No super duper ammo yet but I agree with the green tips. And I agree with your comments, well put.

    The composition of the steel determines the penetration. Ordinary steel is relatively soft and needs treatment to be hole resistant = armour. Thus shooting plates on a range means the plates have to...

    Without hands on I would think the dents in the small plate are normal ball. The other holes might be any similar size bullet. Possibly testing penetration on armour?

    My little experience with one was very good. Light, accurate, easy to handle, friendly rifle. Wish I'd managed to spirit it away.
