    7.65 x 53.

    Ask me how I know ...
    they're nearly as hard to find as .22LR.

    To all you RWNJ hoarders out there: ENOUGH already with buying up the .22LR. The DHS doesn't want it. It's not on the list of stuff the Obama administration's considering adding taxes to, either. Quit being greedy!!!!!!!

    (FWIW: after, say, 35 or 40 years in storage? CCI brand .22LR isn't the best stuff to try to shoot at the range. If you're gonna hoard, hoard Federal or Winchester.)

      You can purchase bulk .22lr from the CMP at about .06/round delivered...but wait times are still 90-120 days.

      Do you have a couple Argentine mausers?  Do you reload the 7.65x53 now?

      The sequester is the new Republican immigration reform plan. Make things so bad here in the US that no one will want to live here.

        and it is a pretty accurate, easy to load round....I usually use a 185g hard cast gas cked over a light charge.....mine is 115yo.....

      •  one box of new ammo and (0+ / 0-)

        half-a-dozen empty casings.

        I have not yet found a place to fire it (range rules where I can afford to shoot locally) and have no idea whether the empty brass was previously re-loaded or not. He inherited it from his dad, who did reload at least some stuff (Ruger .44Mag handgun, notably). So, quien sabe?

        So the answer to your first question is, nope. My BIL has one, and he doesn't reload yet. (That is the plan, though.)

        How I wind up doing some of the stuff I do is ... people go, "You used to be in the Air Force, you'll know how to do this ..."  Well, no, actually, but when I was there I learnt the best answer to a question I didn't know the answer to: "I'll find out." The stuff I find out how to do along the way is gravy. Or clutter, depending ...

        and $80 for 500 rounds of .22 short (or $10 for 50) is highway robbery, just like $7 gasoline in hurricane season. This is West damn Texas, people, not New York City ...
