Re: Recommended Ammo for M73 Rifle

If your planning on hitting anything you have to load your own. That being said I dont shoot less then 200 yards nor do I use smokeless in my rifles. Depending how well versed you are in reloading and then taking it to the next step and reloading for Black Powder cartridge, this may or may not be an option for you. But for starters, for your rifle, you need a good ~500 gr 20-1 or 30-1 lead bullet on top of goex 2F 70 gr by weight and then compressed to make your cartridge over all length. You can go with or without a .030 wad too. If you choose the cowboy stuff, make sure you start at 50 yards and can hit the target. I have seen guys start at 100 or 200 yards and bounce rounds all over and out of the range!
