    Agreed. Case capacity,... Case fill and powder % burned are very important. Converting 308win brass to 300 Savage will decrease...

  2. Zero333 liked std7mag's post in the thread 300 Savage.

  3. Zero333 liked DRB51's post in the thread Ladder Tests In A Modern 7x57 Action.

    Also, improved gas venting should things go bad and the 98 gaining a gas shield on the bolt shroud to protect the shooter's eyes in...

  5. Zero333 liked DRB51's post in the thread Ladder Tests In A Modern 7x57 Action.

    Older topic, but I wanted to chime in re the large ring 98 safety vs the small ring 95s, 93s, etc in 7x57. I'm not sure who in the...

    Your LARGE ring 98 Mausers should handle the higher pressure loads pretty well. A lot of good magnum rifles have been built on them....

  8. Zero333 liked Evan's post in the thread 300 Savage.

    My 300 savage, built on a Mauser, loved 3031. 4320 was only fair. You'll be hard pressed to get 47gns of RL17 in the case! Of your...

  9. Zero333 liked Kurz's post in the thread 300 Savage.

    Both Re-15, 17 are a tad slow for this bullet/cartridge/pressure combination. How funny it is when we realize that working with an older...

  10. Zero333 liked centershot's post in the thread .223 Remington 35gr./40gr High Velocity Loads.

  11. Zero333 liked varmintshooter's post in the thread .223 Remington 35gr./40gr High Velocity Loads.

  13. Zero333 liked Lonny in ID's post in the thread Best .277 Bullet for the Largest Game (Moose, Elk, Bears).

    I'd feel quite confident using the 150 grain Nosler Partition on any of those critters.

  15. Zero333 liked Bill Norris's post in the thread Best .277 Bullet for the Largest Game (Moose, Elk, Bears).

    160 gr. Nosler Partition comes to mind but there are others capable of doing the job as well.
