A little of my collection in the Czech rifles. I could never figure out why CZ-Brno or Sellier & Belloit never revived this round for the World C&R and sport market. This Round is one of the best intermediate rounds I have found for general hunting up to about 250M I have shot some deer at those ranges and some 150kG+ pigs at ranges of about 100+M. I built a sporting rifle for the round some years ago after I shot my second pig with a Vz52 rifle and absolutely fell in love with both the rifle and the round. Even though I have 1.5 tins of ammo of which two are still sealed, I decided to start making my own ammo which I can load with sporting bullets. I first started to use the 220 Swift cartridges but had to cut a new grove for the extractor. This case was very good because it was the closest I could find at the time with the base diameter. Than I switched to the 35 Remington which had a slightly larger base but I did not have to cut a new extractor grove. This case just required a simple base cut-down. Unfortunately both of these operations were way too time consuming. I recently started to use the 7.35 x 51 Carcano because it is inexpensive and now is readily available. This round simply requires re-sizing in a base and sizing die. This allows for reloading with Boxer non-corrosive primers and better bullets than the Armor Piercing rounds which are the 7.62-Kr-52 rounds. Most shooters do not realize that the factory round which either came in brass case (1952-53) and later in a lacquered mild steel case up through 1957 when production stopped. The commonly available bullets were a mild steel jacket which was copper clad and than had a layer of lead being cored with a hardened steel core of about 5mm. The bullet is 8g (130gn) and the cartridge was loaded with 1.77g (27.32gn) of powder, producing a performance of 760 m/s (2500f/s) 1800 lb/ft energy. This is only about 5% more in velocity but 15% more in energy. In a bolt action hunting rifle, with an 18” barrel these #s go up by about the same percentages once again. The OE cartridge has almost identical performance as the 30-30 Winchester if fired in the Vz52 rifle. If fired in a bolt action rifle with an 18” barrel will bring the round to just about 300 Savage performance, a lot of punch in a little package.
