    I have this old box of ammo, and I am assuming this is the ammo that goes in the box. On the lid it says "7.5-S.-R. SP" anyone have an idea what this stuff is?

    Sounds like the stuff - thanks for the research! I had no success. Now, I either need to use it as a display item of find someone who actually shoots the stuff.

    Ok Fred G, nice job there. I am a shot-gunner to start with, I am all geared up to run out and buy a gun and it's 9:15 pm here; not only that, even if it were 10:00 am - I wouldn't even know what kind of gun to look for to shoot this stuff with!!! This ain't even Halloween and you done tricked me!

    Dang. I've got a couple of rounds of 7.65 Argentine, and a dozen 32 short rounds---time to go gun shopping!

    I actually bought a rifle last year to accessorize a bayonet--sometimes we are a strange breed.:)

    The rifle for your ammo? Kind of like these: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Schmidt-Rubin#Schmidt-Rubin_1889

    You'DA-man...you've got this gun stuff figured out! I am just a simpleminded shotgunner....I still wouldn't know what to buy though! Rifles and bayonets - they all look the same to me.

    LOL, I am curious as to what you have. I don't own bayonets, cause they are dangerous. :)

    I got lots of stuff, but only one item in my safe with a Sword at the end, and it's my son's. All I got that have anything to do with sworded weapons are those bullets on this post....you want them, come trick or treat me and you can have them.
