That group was a fluke and could not be duplicated today.
Getting 2" groups today with PMC and R-P cases
That is why we go shoot.
Going to make more empty brass soon.

I found a good load for the Swede I got from Hangfire.
129 flat base and 4064 or H4350 and a couple times out it stayed under 2" at 200 yards.

I took it to Abel racing and showed Andrei Moboost.
He seen a square stamp with SA in it on the receiver and offered me 2X what I paid for the rifle.
I told him SA means nothing to me and accuracy trumps everything.
I told him give me a 6.5x55 swede that is just as accurate and call it even.

He brought me 3 guns to choose from as a trade for the SA stamped rifle.
I took them out and only had to shoot one of them and it was just a little less accurate but still under 2" at 200.
It has a bent bolt handle and drilled receiver and rear mounted scope.

I LOVE IT.
It is easier to get on target with the scope to the rear and I suppose keeping an old rifle bone stock with iron sights is just not for me.
I traded him that nice 6.5 for his bent bolt handle and drilled 6.5.

He then said since i wanted that one he would give me 200 bucks and the rifle because it would cost 200 to put it back to old original form.

Excellent trade.
Now this other swede I have I want to drill it and bend the bolt handle and get the scope farther back.

Plan is to hunt with these. Not make them safe queens.

How is andrei doing? Have talked to him in a couple years.
The SA means it went through the Finnish arsenal. Kinda rare for a Swede. Nice collector piece.
If I remember right, he has an SA in the rectangle tattooed on his forearm

Yes he does have the Tattoo and got all giddy like a school girl when he seen it.
That is one reason I traded it to him because he loves them and I just want a shooter and he is a good friend.

He is doing excellent and had his little girl up at the shop with him.
