Daudeteau loads

I have a few of these rifles and have successfully used the loading data for the 6.5x53 Dutch Mannlicher cartridge. They case capacity of the Daudeteau is a bit greater than that of the Ducth cartridge. This effectively reduces the pressure of the load. I have loaded and fired a few hundred rounds and haven't detected any problem what so ever. I have CH dies and use the Buffalo Arms cases, which have been made up from 45-70 cases.
The 7.62x54 Russian should work well also, but I haven't used any myself.
Hope this helps out. They are a fun and accurate rifle/carbine to shoot.
