    Sounds great mate and I definitely am in a similar position to you.

    It's turned into a big thread, but what I ended up doing was buying a cz 550 which I'm having rebarreled to 275 Rigby.

    Don't forget that Hornady Superformance also has a 139gr GMX. This will be a little over 2700fps. I don't think there will be a faster factory load available out of the USA

    That's the exact rifle I bought. You are going to love it! Check the throat length. Mine is very long allowing me to seat the bullets way out. This makes a difference on the 175 gr. A-Frame.

    I saw this old ammo listed on GB: https://www.gunbroker.com/item/775172541

    200 rounds for $90

    Any thoughts or comments for just using the stuff for range work? Any one bought from the Ammo Fairy?

    1935 manufacture, does it have corrosive primers? More than likely Berdan primed too so no reloading. YMMV but I'd pass.

    For range ammo, I'd buy Prvi Partizan. It's actually cheaper than the old milsurp stuff on gunbroker and it's reloadable.

    Good observations and comments. I sent the seller a note asking about the primers.

    Belgian FN ammo, my money's on corrosive primers in 1935, also Berdan. Be very interested in if one, you get an answer and two, the seller knows anymore than what's printed on the box.

    Earlier today, I saw a Ruger M 77 RSI Stainless Mannlicher in .275 Rigby on Guns America. It was new in box and the buy now price was $1800. This was one of those limited edition models. Doubt that it will get cheaper. Wish I could buy it myself:)

    Yeah I did see that and I thought about it, I just personally have never loved the feel of featherweight's not sure what it is. I almost bought it but figured if it's a rifle I really want to keep it may as well be one I enjoy shooting.

    Won’t get any crap from me for buying a Savage. I’ve bought and sold more than I care to admit to just be 26. Even with my Steyr being my primary rifle currently, there’s still a Savage in the safe.

    Montana Rifle Company lists the 7x57 in the ALR model. If you by chance need a left hand version there are 4-5 on Gunbroker at the moment.

    Hadn't heard back from the Ammo Fairy yet, but saw this photo on the GB ad: Aren't Berdan primers larger than Boxer? Don't know if anyone can tell just by looking at the photo.

    You know guys I went to the handicap dandi internet and asked if 1936 FN ammo was Berdan primed. Believe it or not, there is a blog, Gunboard Forums -- Surplus 7X57, talking about this exact subject. The bottom line is that it most probably is berdan primed. I didn't spend too much time there, but you can read it yourself if you want.

    Berdan or not, it is certainly corrosive from that date. I love all my rifles too much to put that through them in the 21st century. You will have difficulty finding the proper solvent to remove corrosive material - oil and normal solvents don't work. I would not touch the stuff.

    I agree with you. Just trying to provide an answer to the question. For those guys that are interested, I found another forum called Highroad.org. it seems that their specialty is loading all things with berdan primers. But again, I'm with Red Leg

    Best way to clean a gun that's used corrosive primers is to completely disassemble it and take it in the shower with you or better yet, the bathtub, hell a pressure washer would be best. Small parts could go in an ultrasonic cleaner filled with plain old H2O.
    But, I agree with everyone else. I wouldn't use that ammo in your guns, let alone mine.:D
