    I'm not surprised about the fmj. Mine and many others experience has been that,for some reason, the prvi soft point shoots better in these rifles. Since we haven't had anyone else join this discussion here, might I suggest showing your rifle on the Swedishicon military arms forum on Gunboards. If you want definitive info on your rifle, they are very helpful.

    Got my reloading going. Trying 142gr SMK with 42gr H4350 in PPU brass and a Win LR primer.

    I recently sold my house in Delaware and moved to an apartment (until I find a house in my new city in Missouri) for work, but I managed to get a small setup together that works for 100rds or less for a range session.

    We had them appear by the hundreds years back and many took them to task successfully. They were left as was, shortened and we were turning them into a Mannlicher look as well, all shot flawlessly. The only thing we found out for sure was don't overload, stay inside the loading spec as you can do damage by going to the top end of some loads. I'd keep it at pressures and speeds for military loads... It should shoot fine.
    Regards, Jim

    Looks like considerable wear to the lands and grooves, if it is shooting okay then I wouldn't worry about it. Enjoy it!
