have a bubba 96 swede mauser,15 gustav. good bore;no stock disc,so can't access swede read on this gun;all matched (bands gone to bubba,so don't know on that). 1/2 of loads i have tried go > 4 m.o.a. 1/4 of the tried loads go 2.5-3.75 m.o.a. actually not too bad for what it is. loads it likes-fed power shok and surplus go sub m.o.a. all day long. my concern is excess pressure signs with some loads. surplus being the worst. hard bolt lift and exractor/ejector marks on case base. with this ammo,it is no big trick to go 1.0,.75 if i am on at the time. my concerns are obvious from the above. i have > 500r of surplus and plan to shoot this gun a bunch. have any of the swede shooter experts here had a similar experience? i can not see anything modified or changed on this gun other than the bubba chopped stock,missing bands and HG,obviously bent bolt. a bit concerned re excess presure signs,but,can't see how surplus (in good condition) would create this problem. ammo was made for the gun by the folks that issued it to their troops. i am in FL,so maybe a temp/atmospheric hight issue? not real hot when i have been shooting lately (it will be soon). thanks for any and all replies/opinions/input.
