    I've never seen so many strippers working so beautifully in my life.

    Cool!  :cool    I especially liked seeing the Schmidt-Rubin in action.    :thumbup1

       WOW....I've had limited success on stripper clips.   Awesome looking clip.

    BRASS ones for my 8mm mauser, any .30-06 strippers seem to work good.

       I've never tried my K-31 ones...I paid $5 apiece and they're flimsy enough I just have them for display.


      Mosin-Nagants.....about one in 12 clip loads work.

    Mosin clips work pretty well for me. So do the M14 ones with my Stevens.

    My SMLE clips are built like a tank - never had one fail.  It helps to stagger the cartridge rims though.    :thumbup1
