Schmidt Rubin 96/11

The country that avoids war and the country that fights but has a hard time winning have been combined. The Swiss made some excellent firearms and the French made some unique and occasionally inspiring ones. We have added the Belgian and Dutch since they are neighbors.

Happy New Year

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 . :shock: 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
Alu Checks

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

Rearsight 300m

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

KLaus :D

Great post Klaus and it looks like a nice rifle. I have not reloaded for mine yet as I still have some PRVI to shoot.
When I do it will be Vhitavuori N140 43 grains with a jacketed bullet :)
