    Default I.G.71 (1875) Steyr

    Picked this up, 1875 dated Steyr produced example. 100% matching right down to every screw, bore is like new. I'll let the pictures do the talking on this one. The sling that was on it is an original 1917 dated B.T.&B. Co. marked M1907 sling which alone is worth a fair amount to a Springfield collector.

    That rifle is superb. All matching but been around a bit - personally I am not so attracted to ones that look like they have come straight from the factory.

    I also picked up what I thought was an 1871 Mauser, 1875 dated Steyr example. When I got it home I began to realise that something was odd (I'm new to these), and discovered it was a jagerbuchse version. It's considerably more bashed about, and matching with the BIG caveat that the bolt head and extractor were missing. I have been able to find replacements fortunately. Something odd has also happened to the forewood. Will post some pictures. It seems to have seen considerable service.

    Cheers,
    Tony

    Preliminary results are in

    45-90 brass run through a 43 mauser die, .459 375gr trapdoor hollow base bullet run through a .451 sizing die, loaded over 80gr Swis FF felt wad, grease cookie, seated to an overall length of 3.00"

    Could only use the 200 meter range today the 100 was under construction.   Really really really windy, but overall very pleased with the results.

    I like using hollow base bullets on old black powder cartridge guns, helps with oversized or worn bores. I am making up some .446 paper patch tonight.

    darn. i never thought of resizing. i ended up getting rid of this for cheep, as i couldn't get it to group very well. live and learn to those not in the know, its a pretty strong Action, but WATCH the brass for cracking ect, cause there is no gas vent on these,..... .

    That's some darn fine shootin' for 200 yards. I used to compete in 200 yard Milsurp shooting matches years ago. Of course some Finnish Mosin-Nagant would usually take the trophy.
