Does anyone have any cases with markings, as opposed to simply blank case head? Especially if they want to sell them, for inclusion with my 298 Minex. I currently use re-formed Starline 32-20 brass & bullets from an Accurate Moulds mould.
I do not even know what that cartridge is, but…
Dude, that is one pretty rifle!!!
By chance, is the back of the receiver d/t for a receiver sight?
Jealous, I am!
No, it is not D&T for a receiver sight. I’m quite glad it is not for a couple of reasons; 1) I detest receiver peep sights, as all I see is a blurry hole in a blurry black circle. The barrel sights, which are essentially a miniature version of those on the military large frame Martini-Henry are good enough that with my old eyes, I can still put 10 shots in a ~3" group at 50 yds. Good enough for ground-hogs, raccoons, squirrels (at least at 25 yds.) and 2) they interfere with the web of my thumb when I shoulder the stock.
Yes, I know. I have an original Westley Richards catalogue showing my rifle, or rather I should say my wife’s rifle, as I only get to cast & load for it, as she’s appropriated it for shooting.
These little girls are quite exciting and addictive. Since I bought this one a dozen or so years ago, I’ve bought a sweet little octagon-barrelled Francotte-Patent Robert Hughes & Sons in 5.6x35R (.22 W.C.F.) & a cased W.W.Greener take-down in .218 Mashburn, .310 Greener & .310 Cadet (3 barrel set).
These are the bullets I’ve designed for it (the lighter one is the one liked by my wife, which I load to pretty well duplicate the .300/.295 Rook, while the heavier is the same weight as the original, but designed with a large meplat for hunting.
I have only seen the plain no headstamp .298 Minex cartridge.
Boxes are also scarce. I have these two. Same box in Aug 6 thread.
The typed label looks earlier with staples but may not be a factory label?
NICE Kynoch box Ron
Jim, does your octagon-barrelled Francotte-Patent Robert Hughes & Sons, .22 W.C.F., look anything like this?
A lightweight .22 WCF with the only ID I can identify “M/71” on the barrel.
