... So we need to fill her back up again. Still trying to work a swap for a Hungarian M95 to keep my Austrian one company.

No gandog, they aren't gone. They are just mixed in with all the powder keg threads like swiss rifles, mauser, cz , and a multitude of others.

Well. looks like the swap is going to be a done deal. Tried to talk him into a Finn capture 91/30 since I had two of them, but he fell in love with the picture of my refinished lammy stock M38.

I like mine, but I think that whoever decided to put a sling swivel in the middle of the wrist on the stock was drinking substandard vodka!
I also dislike the fact that I've been unable to gather all of the required equipment to reload for mine as I think it would make a heck of a hog rifle. I've got a few cases, dies, powder, primers, and a bunch of cast bullets. Unfortunately, I can't find any reloading data for the stuff that I have and I haven't been able to secure the funds for a Lee Lube\Sizer so I can use common hunting bullets as my play fund gets depleted before I get to this gun (it's a long, complicated mathematical equation involving lots of cussing and screaming by my wife.), but I still have high hopes.
FWIW, mine is very accurate with the small stash of 1938 Nazi ammo I was able to find awhile back, but it's almost gone.

I'm too lazy to cast my own, but too cheap to buy storebought. So I'm using Graf And Sons brass, Privi Partizan 208 grain FMJBT's (Also to be had at Graf's) and 45 grains of H4895. I tired the 150 grain bullets that can be had at Buffalo Arms, but like the heavies a lot better.

Boy can I relate to the wife side of things.She just doesn't understand that you just can't run down to your local Jiffy Mart and get what you need.
When the gun stuff that you've been searching for comes up,you have to get it when you can.

I too as well have some of the Nazi stuff in there original boxes with clips.
I can't bring myself to shoot them.
I did get 100 rounds of Hornady 205 grain soft point and some mil-surp FMJ from J&G when they started to sell it off after the guns were all gone.

I just bought a couple hundred rounds 1938 Austrian surplus 8x56r. My Budapest M95 is the best "hundred dollar rifle" I ever bought!

Ditto what toolman said about the sling mount. What a bad idea....although, I guess I'd feel differently if I was on the back of a horse most of the time!

The one I do have has never had anything but my own reloads fed to it from the first time I shot it. As a matter of fact, I had all the stuff to reload it arrive before the gun arrived.

PRVI and Hornady are both making commercial ammo for the 8X56R. Both for sale at Graff & Sons, they also have reloading components, or at least that's where I got mine.
