37mm reloading

Post by Wollychop » 06 Feb 2009, 19:25

Anyone have any pet loads for 37mm? Ive got a bunch of cartridges, fuse plates and end plates. I have the data for some loads off of 37mm.com, and some chalk rounds. Anyone have any favorites?

Well, it's pretty simple. You pull the charging handle to the rear, you place it on "F", and you squeeze the trigger :D

I've got a bunch of smoke rounds, etc for it, and some 12 gauge and 26.5mm loads with adapters too. I have a whole kit for handloading the 37mm.

It's a lot more fun than it should be!

Come on buddy, I feel personally slighted that you did not call us. I think we can come up with something.

Mine is the carbine length launcher.

It really only needs about 4 inches of rail to mount. There are two allen bolts that need to be tightened and that is it.

Very simple to mount on any picatinny / weaver rail system.

It looks like there site is down for tonight.

Which is why, logically, you would not purchase them off of gunbroker.

Also, the 26.5mm stuff is fairly cheap, and the adapters arent that much at all (30 bucks or so)

In case anyone is interested there is a new manufacturer of reloading components. looks like they have some pretty cool stuff. Just bought one of the rocket projectiles and a large casing.

Those folks are here in Bend, Oregon. I saw their products at a gun show a couple of months ago and I was impressed. Pretty neat stuff. I have been remiss in that I haven't tried anything from them yet. But seeing it here, I figure I better get down there and buy some stuff before you guys grab it all up. After I've had some experience with their stuff , I'll give you a report how things work.
