    Some of my very best target load for 7x57mm military rifles were light loads with the very light bullets of 100 to 115 grains . PERIOD . I am talking about 1 to 1.5 inch 5-shot groups at 100 yards...

    Something else that will help with the fb light bullets is a light load with a fast burning powder . That will give them a " kick in the pants ' to help with obturation , the light bullets are...

    You need to know the groove size . If you have a .288 + groove your short boat tails will not ride the rifling straight and you will have poor accuracy . I have seen that a lot on 7mm military rifles...

    You need to get the groove measurement , that is most likely your problem . What bullets are you using ? The groove will matter much more than the throat .

    No metric ? You are already using 7.62x63mm . The 98/22 is a 7.92mm rifle , but you could always just load it with .323 if you did not want metric .

    Another internet myth . The 7.7x58mm rifle cartridge has nothing to do with the .303 Brit other than using the same bullet dia . It is not a rimless version as it has a different case shape and...

    Looks more like a M-16 , not a M-43 . If the bolt is total braze in the joint it will have no strength and will break . Brazing is more of a glue for metal to metal bonding .

    Highly unlikely as that would be a massive undertaking . First guess is the shop thinks it is a M-95 , so thinks the caliber is 8x56r . The rifle still has a swiss barrel on it , so it would have...
