    Someone left some at the range Sunday. If it's still there I will send it out to you.

    You might try contacting Nolan (Phatcyclist) I gave him a bunch of 8mm brass that I no longer needed. Most of it was commercial once fired.

    Alan, Thanks... I need to start reloading for the Browning. It can be a ammo eating machine if you loose track of how many belts you have run through...

    Pappy, Yes Sir. 8mm mauser. I also have a .308 barrel and am going to pick up a 30.06 bbl. In theory, it can be modified to shoot most any caliber that has a shorter length than the original 30.06 and as long as the case head is close enough to the 30.06 for the extractor to enguage it properly. ie; 30.06, .308, 8mm, .243, 25.06, I believe 7mm would work too just have to check the OAL. Then of course, find a bbl. chambered to that round. MG

    No problem, It makes it a very interesting weapon if you have several barrels. Insted of being "usless" when you are out of ammo...Just install another barrel to fit the ammo you have, of can "find" ....MG
