Cool pics. Sad that I can never have most of those. The SVT-40's look really good. Love those rifles.

Hey Steyer I just bought reloading dies and brass for my Mas 36, it eats the same expensive stuff as your 49/56. If you like I can taylor some loads for you.

Ivanimal, where are you getting the load data for the 7.5Fr? Lyman's 48th doesn't list it, though Lee's has a few loads. Which dies did you get? I know that Lee has them and I think RCBS does as well.

Hey Steyr_223, great pictures! I love the mosin snipers.

Weird. . . when I first clicked on the link a message popped up saying something like "blake grice is a stupid motherf**ker". I backed out, clicked again and lo and behold all the pics popped up. WTF?

For the record, not of these guns are mine. However, I do own an SVT 40! http://calguns.net/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif


Ivanimal, I do have a MAS 36 and would be interested in some ammo deal in the future. I have a few dozen rounds of French 7.5 surplus and would need more ammo in the future.

What do you think of it? Is it pretty accurate? I've heard they were decent considering what they must have survived to still be around. I'm very happy with the 7.62x54R cartridge in my Mosin Nagant. SVT is on my list to have someday...

I understand that the data provided from the dies I bought from Lee was derived from the 30-40 Krag. It says so right on the data sheet. It lists loads from 100 gr projectiles to 220 gr. eg. would be 180 gr. bullet H322 powder 33.3 grains to 37.0 grains 2.703 OAL aprox 2250 FPS. The new edition of Lee's modern reloading has well over 100 listing as well. I can copy it and mail to you as I have looked far and wide for info and to no avail. The data in Lymans for ther 30-40 is not comparable so I would not use it.

Better yet I will leave it for you at Irvington arms. I am going there today.

Hm. Wish I was home with my manuals and not at work. I've got the Lee 2nd Ed. manual and I've looked at those loads - from the top of my head it seems like all the heavier loads listed there are for lead rather than jacketed bullets? That Lee book does say the loads are from a comparable round, I'd thought it was from the 6.5 Swede since they have the same case capacity and the 6.5 can be formed to 7.5 Fr.

I'm looking for SP loads, still trying to decide what to use for deer hunting this fall. Thought I'd do a comparison and see how the ballistics of the 7.5fr fit in with the 7.62x54r, the 30-06, and the .308Win. I have the MAS-36 plus a few Mosin's, and I'm considering a new rifle just for the deer trip.

It's been an educating exercise as it's the first time I've fully looked into the energy/momentum/velocity/bullet-weight part of reloading rather than just looking up load-data in the book and making a few of them up. I'm putting some of the data in spreadsheet, and like i said it's been a great exercise.

Jim the data in the 2nd edition does say comparable round. The data sheet on the dies is dated 12-26-1996 That may be why they said what round the data came from. Pre-lawyer info! on reviewing the recipes closer the max loads are the same but the starting loads are all incresed by .6 grains on average. Interesting. Take it for what its worth, at least he lists a nice variety of loads for this dinosaur. Still, Richard Lee is a bit of a maverick in this industry, although I used to talk his stuff down, I now just appreciate it for what it is. Good quuality dies and products, at a great price. His inventions are legendary. He keeps Guns like those pictured shooting. I still will never buy one of his progressives, I am a spoiled Dillon user.
