        Hey Greg!

        Thank you very much for the offer. I was sizing 32-20 down to 25-20 thirty five years ago. I was just hoping for some correctly head stamped brass as I shoot a lot of 32-20 also. You're right, I did find some but they were too rich for my blood.

        307, you in Wyoming? We used to live in Star Valley, near Thayne.

      I have recently uploaded a thread where I am trying to learn more about an Emil Kerner SxS. I have seen you have responded to a couple other about Kerner guns and I would really appreciate your thoughts. Thank you.

        Uhhhh....other than date, time and place? No sir, that's all I know. It's been held for....a couple years I believe. I always go and as with a lot of shows you never know what might turn up.

      sharps, if you have problems with translation, please tell me and I will take this for you.. Feuerbixler (firerifle) is the Bavarian name for Schuetzen and this aria of Germany and border to Austria every year they are using this arms for competition, very traditional, I like it to see. In Bavaria the watches goes left.

        Hello Marble.
        Thank you for the link. Now if I could read German it would be great! I wish I could as there is so many great German web sites I would like to read. I will wade through it and get what I can. I do appreciate it.

        Actually, I do not have a problem with the rifle. I have made cases, know the weight and size bullet it needs, have a correct mold ordered and have worked up load data

      I was thinking- maybe Marblekonus can help you find that book.

        I don't know. I am fairly certain it's an American written and printed book. I have no idea how common it would be in Germany & Europe.

        I looked for it, and the only thing that I can tell you is that it is out of print. Maybe if you can find some old bookstores they might be able to help. Good luck.

      This might be a dumb question- have you googled the book search?

      To clean after shooting the corrosive ammo, use windex. The ammonia is what does the job. Then clean it like you would any other gun. This is what I do with my mosin nagant 91/30.

      No sir, I don't have an idea of it's value. Newer firearms are not an area where I have much expertise. As new as it is I would think its value would be as a using rifle, a shooter. It's way too early for it to be a collector.

      Here's what I do when I need to know an approximate value of something I'm unfamiliar with. I take a trip to the gun sites, *********, GunsAmerica, GunsInternational and GunAuction. That will at least give a person an idea of what the asking prices are. I don't even keep the web site addresses in my favorite file, they're all immediately available with a bing search....or Google but I hate Google.

      I'm sorry I can't help you off the top of my head but I hope the other info may give you some kind of idea.

        No sir, I'm afraid I don't. Not anything that would be accurate or trustworthy. In the last 20+ years my interest of anything made past about 1950 has waned considerably and I haven't kept up with prices of newer firearms.
