Loads for 1896/11

The country that avoids war and the country that fights but has a hard time winning have been combined. The Swiss made some excellent firearms and the French made some unique and occaisonally inspiring ones.

Loads for 1896/11

Postby joseyclosey » Thu Jun 01, 2006 1:05 pm

Anyone loading for the Schmidt Rubin 1896/11 using Vihtavouri powders?

Specifically N140 powder and 150g fmj or 155g A-max bullets.

I would be interested in your experiences with this combo or any other powder/bullet combos.

The 96/11 uses GP11, and the same loads as the 1911, K11, and K31. Its the earlier models that use GP90.

Just be careful and don't put the GP11 clones in an '89.

More and more people are shooting cast loads through the 1889.
