Default Another 8mm !

Picked this over the weekend, 1940 ASFA / ANKARA. Stuck a gauge in it, head space is good, think I will go shoot it tomorrow after I go to Wal-Mart today & get a box of ammo.

Looking good. I miss the days of $39 Turks. Post a range report after you shoot her.

Too bad your in Missery or I'd Give you some 1949 Ankara 8x57. It is some smokin hot heavy ball. Your rifle is sighted for this stuff. I know the guy that bought the second case when I bought mine. His is still sealed/full. 1900 rounds on chargers, in bandoliers. We paid $109.00 ea at an estate sale we went too. He had just bought a Turk like yours for, are you ready!!! $69.00. Think about it, a rifle and 1900 rounds for 178.00. .057 a round. I was going to take both cases, but gave one up to him. I should not have!!
