Oh Frabulous Day! Lee Case Length Gauge 8X56R
 
Somebody in another forum turned me on to this. Lee does not list this on their website so I don't know how Midway has them listed.

Lee Case Length Gage and Shellholder 8x56Rmm Austrian-Hungarian Mannlicher (8mm Hungarian M31) - MidwayUSA

Perfect if you have the Lee cutter and lock stud.

Haha. "Not full power loads". No kidding!

Full loads SUCK in my M95. Guys complain about the recoil of the No5Mk1 Jungle Carbines. I tell them to try a M95, and quit whining about the No5JC.

Woosies! I fire nothing but full power loads.:p

10 Mosin Nagants got me used to massive recoil.

Of course, I also have the slip on recoil pad.....:o

I got a couple hundred pieces of brass from Graf And Sons when I started. As a matter of fact, think I had the brass before I received the rifle. Means Gertrude has never fired any nasty corrosive stuff since I got her. I have only about 2-3 reloads on the brass, so I was thinking it may be time to start worrying about it getting longer and needing trimming.

Wait! You have a slip on recoil pad and are calling US woosies?! Haha.

Mine still sports the spiked, hobnailed, serrated, red hot flaming steel buttplate.

Maybe it is the old Nazi ammo that is so hot? Because my Moisin Nagant M38 is nowhere near the recoil of the M95. Even with Heavy Ball.

m72law 02-22-2010 11:17 PM

mosin m44's and m38's have about the same recoil as a 12gauge using birdshot...

my m95 stutzen's and steyr m95/34 to me have the same recoil as a 10gauge using 00buck.using the nazi marked ammo..im not big but im not scronnie 5'10 205lbs...after about 10rds of this ammo...it will leave a lil bruise on my shoulder.this is why i only use pet loads when reloading for this cal...if any rifle ever designed needed a recoil pad it shouldve been the m95:D

gangdog and m14rock,
i'm man enough to admit i'm a wimp! :D i shoot lee's 205 grain gc cast bullet at 1800 fps from my 8x56r because i prefer my retinas attached to the back of my eyeballs where they belong.

my mosins like cast bullets too! :)

Wimp! Attached retinas are over rated.
