Default Gp 11

I've used several different loads in my 06/11, but the GP 11 seems to work best. Its match ammo, and is very consistent. SAMCO has the ammo fairly reasonable, and a few of the K-31s also.

Default Swiss K-31

nitestalker Good to talk with you again. I have a gun show coming up next month, and I am really wanting to find a Swiss K-31. I know what I want in one as I used to help out at a local gun shop, and "detailed" a lot of them that came in through directly from the importer. That shop is now gone, and I never knew what price they had on them at that time. How much do you think I would have to pay for one today. Or to put it in another way, how much would I need to get a nice one? What is the system of the Swiss, Boxer or Berdan?

HM2, The best deals I have seen on the Web is Widenners Ammo they have some nice ones for $299+ S&H. I bought mine years ago when they sold for $125 bucks. I expect you may find one for around $250 dollars but they are going up all the time. The surplus ammo is about gone it is Boxer primed good stuff. The Partasin Brand in the 173 grs. bullet is close to the orginal loading. I load the 147 FMJ BT I use in my Garands. The St, Marie Alumn scope mount is neat no drilling. My best loads have been reformed .284 WCF brass but the 7.5X55 Swiss works great.

GP11 is berdan primed and not reloadable w/ standard boxer die sets.

Samco Global still has the K31s for $289. They also have plenty of the GP11 ammo in stock. I've got a 1906/11 and have found its probably the most fun and accurate of all my milsrp rifles. 500 meter consistent shots seem to be no problem with the Swiss guns. My 15 year old makes 1000 meter shots consistently with it. Just wish I were younger and could see the target plate at that distance. lol

Thx for the correction on that Milsurp ammo being Berdan. I never see it for sale. I handload everything for the most part.

That's cool. I really find Norma brass is far better accuracy wise then anything else.

Berdan is OK. I have recently started to reload it when I was having trouble finding any surplus 8mm Mauser for my 98k. GP-11 shouldn't be a problem unless they use a different sized primer like the Soviet 7.62x54. Nitestalker, I think I will see if I can find a better price at the gun show first. I have a nicer old Colt Army Special 38 that I am going to try to make some kind of a swap. The guys at the gun show have less overhead, and seem a little more easy to "deal" with. My eyes can't make out the sights on the Colt any more unless I use a blinder with an iris in it

I was lucky to acquire a couple cases of GP-11 so I have basically a lifetime supply of this very good ammunition. I'm sure all of us here will agree that these are amazing rifles that wreak of quality. Most of all they are just plain fun to shoot.

I love the K31....along with the Swedish 96 the are about the best of the mil surplus....I have 2 K31's and wish I would have got a third....I actually got a response from a troop tag on one of the rifles.
