    Just as a cautionary note: The 9x29R(immed) or .38 Special rounds, if loaded in accordance with
    European pressure standards, could be unquestionably above U. S. pressure standards. I would
    not shoot ...

    Way back in 1898, the 8mm Lebel used a 198 grain solid brass (not bronze) bullet. Then sometime
    in the 1970s, a French (again!) company called "Mystique" - as I recall - made a line of
    handgun ammunit...

    Price is about average for what I've seen lately. (Yeah, I wish I'd bought one thirty years
    ago. Except they were more than I to spend back then!) New boxer primed ammo and cases

  • Posted in thread: .30 cal rifles and sabot ammunition on 11-03-2016 at 12:59 AM
    I have some left over. I tried them in .30-06 and a .30-06 Improved. Accuracy was amazing
    underwhelming. I don't hear much about them anymore, so I presume my experience is not unique.

    Well, you haven't 'lost' it all. Those are pretty fair groups for general use.The .270 needs to
