as i told at Duncan`s G 11 thread i would open a new file for my latest achievement.
Swiss Rifles are not on my" i must have file"
i was looking for another Mauser 98 Long Rifle and my target are on a Turk Mauser 1903 unfortunately my bid at EGUN cames to late and the Rifle was gone .....
so i poke a bit and my eyes catch a Swiss Long Rifle IG 96/11 mhh . maybe it would replace my Mauser 98 behavior... long story short iv`e been very impressed about this fine Rifle
taking some pics from the 96/11 and targets shoot have taken last week.
first shots are done with GP11 and Reloads from a friend with jacketed Bullets but my own passion relay on cast bullets loads.
my receipt :
Lee .312 - 185 Bullets
Sized to .309 and .310
Home Made Lube and finaly Ben`s LLB
Here in Germany we US Powders are rare and expensive now so i use the all time available LOVEX Powder
Lovex are Accurate Powder because Lovex produces for Accurate in Europe.
For my loads i use D036 = AA # 5
12,4 grs Do36 no Filler light Factory Crimp
13grs D036 no Filler light Factory Crimp
50 m rested on a Sandbag
POA 6 o Clock Hold
I shoot both diameter on Target 1 and 3 10 shots each
.310 Bullet Impacts are a bit deeper as .309 er
Targe 2 are .309 Bullets only.
vertical stringin depends on my eyesight / light condition at this day
regards from Germany

When I do it will be Vhitavuori N140 43 grains with a jacketed bullet
GP 11 and Reloads are accurate as well
Been very impressed about these 96/11
Will post some more for my Enfield and Portuguiese Mauser soon
That looks like great shooting.
Congratulations on the new rifle!
