I got five more boxes of the Nazi marked ammo today, I can't afford to buy all he has, two big wooden crates full, must be hundreds of these packs! If any of you need some of these, $8 a box, PM me and I will give you his contact info. He is a FFL dealer out here in West Texas.
Heck, I saw just the two Nazi marked clips on GB for $8.95 a pair, no ammo!
Graf&Sons has brass for thr 8X56. I got some and now I keep the old nazi stuff.
If you reload you can down load the powder to cut down on recoil.
I do shoot some that I got from SOG it has know nazi markings.
I just got my hands on two old blue Interarms boxes with 50 rounds each, Hungarian wartime ammo with grey steel cases mostly from 1943, but also from 1942 and 1944. Condition of the rounds was very good, with the faintest brown spots sometimes speckled on the cases. The test rifle was a Hungarian M 1935, which I already knew to be very accurate in spite of its somewhat "frosted" (= pitted) bore.
1. All rounds were surefire, no ignition delay. Extraction was mostly okay, but with three of 15 cases, the sticky bolt had to be hammered back.
2. Recoil of the Hungarian 1943 was significantly milder than the 1937 Austrian brass case surplus. 1944 steel case was more or less the same.
3. Accuracy of the Hungarian ammo in this rifle was utilitarian; whereas Austrian 1937 was supreme, better even than best Swedish 6,5x55. More details later.
Okay here are some details from the range visit now. Target used was the usual ISSF bullseye.
At 50 metres, five shots of 1943 Hungarian steel case grouped 4" width and 0.6" (zero point six) height. Don't ask me what I did, I don't know...
At 50 metres again, five shots of I/1937 Austrian brass case grouped 0.75" x 0.6" (width / height).
At 100 metres (around 110 yards) as last try, a Hungarian steel case mix of three 1943 and two 1944 rounds grouped 2.75" width and 3.5" height.
The last 50 metres group were 5 shots of 1944 Hungarian steel case: 1.1" width and 2.75" height.
