Circle T = Barrel made of an Improved Steel
Double Headed Eagle = Austria 1935-1938
Double Triangle/Bowtie Mark: Unknown, possibly inspector mark after rebarrel.

Availabilty of ammuntion is low. Most of the surplus 1938-1940 ammunition has dried up or has gone sky high in price. A box of 10 could be had just a year ago for $2.50. That same box now cost $12.00 or more.

I have started to reload 8x56R using cast bullets.

Bullet: Lee C329-205-1R
Case: PPU
Primer: CCI 200 LR
COL: 2.858 (Will be trying to seat out longer to attempt to increase accuracy)
