Awesome Pony. I need to load 30-06 and 7.62x54, so that should be a nice start. I shall commence to play in the loading room this weekend I hope.

Those are good to go, Dalton. WW1 Moisins are nearly identical to the pre-1900 ones. While the website seems to be having problems, the gist of the article was, they used the same load(9gr) for several milsurp calibers in .30-8mm with all the same powder charge, with basically standard weight for the caliber bullets, with good results.So what you use for a Krag, can be used in .303, 7.62X54,30-06,7.62 Argentine, 8MM Mauser or Lebel, etc.
The powder charge I use for .30-40 and .30-06 is also the same as I use in 45.70 and 50-70

The only limitation we place on Mosins is that they must be of the HEx reciever variant, with a straight stock.  Any straight stocked hex reciever Mosin is eligible for the GAF match.  For era of expansion we will also allow any Mosin carbine NOT designed for an attached bayonet, in liu of the rare and unobtainable M1907  (IE the M38, M91/38 or M91/59)

Sweet! Now to see if these 2 new additions to my safe are shooters. I even have a bayonet for it, as long as no crop dusters come by.

Surplus article seems to be gone for good.  As indicated, it simply stated that 9 grains of Trail Boss provided a good starting load in .30 caliber bottleneck rifle cases starting with the .30-30 on up to the .30-06.  Velocitys were in the 1100-1200 fps range, with all sights set on "6" printing close to point of aim at 50 and 100 yards with 150 to 180 grain lead bullets, as cast from Lee molds, no gas checks.

Fill the case to the base of the bullet, weigh the charge and multiply it by .7 that gives you your starting load. This data from: www.imrpowder.com/PDF/Trail-Boss-data.pdf

It apparently doesn't work well compressed.

I tried it, had no problems with the powder, just that the Arisaka didn't like the bullets I tried. It was the so called "Cruise Missile" mold from Mid South. The flat nose would hang up and not feed from one side of the magazine, I think the left side. So the experiment was put off until I get a different, suitable, mold.
