.43 Mauser
« on: December 18, 2013, 07:08:43 PM »
Here is a photo of a box of 43 Mauser BP rounds I loaded up for a friend. He has since gotten bitten by the bug and is reloading his own now!

I'm not familiar with that one, Mazo. When was it developed and used?

Knowledge carried to the grave unshared, is wasted.

Great link! My friend picked this rifle up as a youngster for about $5.00, probably 60+ years ago! I have been trying to talk him out of it for a while now, but no deal! Those rifles are bringing big money now.
This is the first firing of the rifle in over 100 years! We did the first shot remotely, using a string around the trigger, rifle butt in a tire.

We then proceeded to shoot up the 5-6 rounds I had loaded as test rounds. John's grin was the biggest I have seen from him! The next week he stopped in Hartford (Lee Precision, Titan Reloading) and bought $400 worth of reloading stuff! This was last winter.
