    Great wee rifles. Hope you find one. I have some strippers I think...sourced from Europe. Hit me up if you can't find any.

    sadly, my old girl i am pretty sure has been sporterised, such a pity as she is actually rather accurate with the cast projectiles i made up for her, Tikka7mm08, that's a nice example! @Magnus ive a few cases spare if you ever need some!

    I appreciate & respect differing views, I greatly value the benefit of good conversation around differing opinions & respect points of view contrary to my own, however when you’re a belligerent self-opinionated obnoxious troll like individual, +1 to the ignore list

    Got one of the first Italian sniper scopes that used to be bolted onto the earlier WWI Carcano rifle. Interesting unit...

    Will investigate, staying in Woodville at the moment for work so will find some time to shoot over the hill.

    Most important is are these still available to purchase or do you cast your own?

    @Slug i cast these a couple of years back, im trying to find the load i developed, i dont think i used a gas check but i have found a recipe that it could be, ive got to pull a round part as i may have used polenta as a buffer, it was accurate, but i can't recall the velocity we drove it at nor the hardness of the lead. if i di find anything i will post it on the reloading page

    Polenta seems right in an Italian cartridge

    Brought it with some other stuff I wanted, took me a LOOONG time to work out what it was and what it was actually off. It's not in brilliant nick, but it is rocking horse poo to be honest - I believe the Carcano armoury sniper conversions basically never made it out of "trials" type status - the training and doctrine failed not the rifle. Very few exist now as far as I can ascertain and most are in museum collections or military pattern collections.

    So definitely for sale...
