    Schmidt Rubin

    Picked up a Schmidt Rubin today, and was told its 7.5mm. Im ok with that but if 7.5x55 wont fit I will need to start reloading sooner.
    Just wondering what the difference is between 7.5 and 7.5x55?

    Im new to military arms and cartridges.

    7.5x55mm Schmidt Rubin - 7.5mm Swiss - same same.
    I think there were 4 models, and the first shouldn't have full snort modern loads put through them, but all the ones made in the 20th century are good to go, though, and the 7.5mm is pretty much the equal of the .308.

    All original or sportered?

    It's been half an hour, where's the pics???

    Its been sportered, But by the looks of it, it was done a long time ago after the front broke off and the broken pices were trimmed. So I may have to finish "sporting" it. And I cant figure out how to post pictures to save my life.

    You need to get the pictures online, by posting them on a host site like photobucket.
    Then just link to them.
    Here's a tutorial. http://gunownersofcanada.ca/showthre...-Post-Pictures

    Even sportered, it's better that it is now in loving hands and likely to be used, rather than moulding away, forgotten in some dark corner

    if its the earlier 1889 it'll be in 7.5x53, or could be rechambered as there are conversions around in .308 and .30-30

    ^ the link should help you figure out which one it is maybe

    from the long box magazine and the rear sight it is a 1889 so do not be shooting 7.5x55 in this one as it is probably chambered in 7.5x53 unless somebody has rechambered it to another caliber

    Ya that site was really helpful, now I need to find more ammo for it. (only have 30 rounds). Or the more likely route, have it re-chambered when I finish sporting it.
