    8X60R Portuguese Kropatschek cases & ammo FOR SALE

    CACHE OF PORTUGUES MILITARY ONCE FIRED CASES AND SOME LOADED AMMO TO SELL
    They are all original Berdan Primed (believe .254") originally loaded with black powder and dated 1900-1909.
    These once fired brass have been cleaned, any with cracks have been scrapped.
    The loaded ammo was made using the original black powder loaded wood bullet Blank cartridges.
    I've pulled the bullets and replaced with lead, both cast and jacketed.
    I bought cases of these thirty years ago from Navy Arms and used them to make Blank ammo for my Spencer carbine (converted to center fire) for Cavalry reenactments.
    I no longer do that and sold the Spencer.
    With 2,000 of the Blanks remaining, I bought me a Kropatschek and started making some live ammo.
    My Steyr built Kropa groove diameter miked at .323" and shoots best with jacketed bullets & Gardner's Cache cast gas checked bullets.
    I have several types of bullets loaded ranging from .321"-.326" available.
    Or buy my brass and load your own using 4198 powder.
    Contact me if interested.

    Terry,
