    I have never had a issue with .323 bullets in 8mm Lebel. Both my rifles were chambered for 'N' cartridge but I found .323 198grn FMJ boattail rounds from PPU shot better than the pulled surplus...

    Personally I tend to load 44grns of 3031 under a 198 grn .323 FMJ bullet for my 8mm Lebel rifles (a 1907/15 Berthier and a Gras 70/84/14). Works pretty good and never had any pressure issues or...

    So your going to want to check the caliber. Many of the sporterized ones were converted to .30-30. Otherwise I don't have much of a clue for parts.

    90% of the Land casualties in WWII were caused by Arty, 8% by Armoured, 2% by Infantry. The balance has shifted even more in recent years thanks to advancement in Arty tech (the stuff the Russians...

    I don't see tanks going out of favour anytime soon. Yes they can be more vulnerable than before but the reality is it is still a important tool. Ultimately it is Arty which wins battles.

    I know that Swedish Stripper Clips worked in my Arisaka Type 99 when I had it, I suspect it would work for the Type 38 as well but I have never tried.

    The advertising gimmick I love is when someone puts 'rare' in their ad. Truly rare items don't need to be advertised that way, the parties recognize they are rare by looking at them not because...

    The Lange Vizier sight signifies the barrel was replaced on Peruvian Mausers, it was not how they originally started. This one might have just had a good enough barrel not to be replaced.

    I absolutely love the concept of these rifles.

    K31s eject the brass straight up which is where we want to put the scope. Solution is to turn the action 15 degrees so now it shoots the brass...

    That type of stuff wasn't unheard of, even into the 2000s. The internet is the main reason it has become much less common as photos travel a lot farther.

    If there are some in Canada the amount would be very few. Any in country would have been brought in pre-1994 so very limited time frame where it would have been possible to buy one.

    The biggest issue with the Mk. III Ross was it wasn't given enough time to fully develop. By 1916, the design was mature and effective, with all the kinks worked out (improved bolt stops and locking...

    I know, I immediately thought of Guisan, but unfortunately he is passed on. I know he likely would have had a answer, or if he didn't he would be the guy to have figured it out.

    The AG-42 and 42b used the same gas system (no difference other than one being stainless and one not). The rear sight is actually calibrated for both calibers, there is a little...

    1) these items might still be controlled goods in Canada and might be illegal to possess

    The best load for a AG-42 will not be any of the military loadings. Those gas systems are overgassed with standard military issued ammo (to the point that they used to oil the cartridges in service).

    This is basically exactly what I would do. Only difference I would make is adding a bit of a bevel at the front of the rod so it would gently ride up on the dent, and have a threaded hole at the end...
