Cases used were original Austrian military berdan primed brass that had been converted to use #209 shotshell primers.


As shown in line #1, the original military bullet miked .329".   The bore-groove of this 1895 carbine slugged .316 x .332".  Regardless of bullet diameter shown, all were sized .335 in a home made push through size die.  Cast bullets were tumble lubed twice to fill the lube grooves and then sized.  The jacketed bullets were rolled on a case lube pad then sent through the same size die.   Considering the trigger (spongy), sights (barlycorn), and the sight radius, I was happy to get this.
