TFBTV: Swiss Schmidt-Rubin M1889: A “Semi-Smokeless” Rifle

    Mike takes a look at a very old Swiss favourite, about which much incorrect information abounds – the Schmidt-Rubin M1889 rifle in 7.5×53.5mm GP90 calibre. A smokeless calibre. Yes, you heard that right – smokeless. Turns out all the books that say “semismokeless” are wrong. Who knew? (Yes, this is one of Mike’s favourite dead horses to flog)

    Mike was lucky enough to go to a school with a 25 yard smallbore range, only 25 minutes from the centre of British shooting at Bisley, and had a firearms certificate before he had a driver’s license. Moving to a more gun-friendly country has allowed him to service his milsurp habit. He lives up in the mountains in Switzerland and vlogs at YouTube as Bloke on the Range.
