    No offense intended, but I don't know you. You might be a legitimate metallurgist who has scientifically tested Turk brass to determine it's degree...

    It's a little presumptive to assume that everyone can pick up some extra hours at work, or work harder for a bigger bonus. I expect that's true for a...

    That's the first I've heard of that, though I can't quite agree with your assessment of "brittle brass" being the entire cause. If you want to run...

    Fatelk replied to a thread Turk 7.92x57 in The Ammo Bunker
    I'm confused here. I have never once heard of Turk ammo letting go with a cracked case head. I have heard and experienced many, many times cracked...

    Fatelk replied to a thread Turk 7.92x57 in The Ammo Bunker
    All I know is that I did have some damage to my FN49 close to 20 years ago, with Turk ammo, and it wasn't a case head failure. Maybe a brittle old...

    Interesting video. It contradicts what I've heard about Turk ammo, other than the fact that it is hot (3200fps is smoking hot, in my opinion). I'm...

    I don't know about the OP, but I have very specific reasons for doing what I have done. I have a large quantity of Turk Mauser ammo. The unaltered...

    Fatelk replied to a thread Turk 7.92x57 in The Ammo Bunker
    I did some more tinkering and came up with a load that works very nicely in the FN49. I dialed it back to a velocity of around 2700 fps in the...

    This is exactly it, plus what Ammolab said. Over the years I've tried to talk many different friends into reloading, a few times even helped them get...

    Yes, I understand. I was just expecting a bit more of a difference. I would never swap bullet and powder over into new cases without decreasing and...

    I just pulled some 1950 Turk ammo down and decreased the powder charge. The factory charge was 48 grains, and I decreased it to 45 grains, reloading...
