    Had a old sporterized 1889 schmidt rubin given to me awhile back and I disassembled it to a bunch of parts.The stock was broken and not repaired very well and was falling apart. Found another old stock and cleaned it and made it fit the way I wanted it.

    A little work and time this is what I got.

    Not bad work at all. Just make sure not to use GP11 ammo in it. It was designed for the black powder GP90 round.

    Thanks,
    I have been doing a lot of research and going to play with loads from the lower end of the 30/40 krag, from what I have read they are well below the pressure limits of the old girl. I also have some trail boss I have loaded for some older guns, might try it using the directions on the hodgdon web page. Should be pretty safe.

    Yeah, from what I've read most people load it similar to 30-40 krag.
