would you mind giving an idea of cost as I have a hankering for an 1889,1896 or 96/11
they are shootable if you get them put on your FAC as the 7.5x55 case can be cut down and cast loads used .

the 1989 use GP90, these are 7.5x53.5 (the clue is in the title of the thread)
edit this is the 7.5x53.5 GP90 not the modern 5.6x45 GP90 used in the current Sig STG90

yes, but don't most still just use 7.bowl 55 brass as is, as per this

although i will say i did google 7.5 x 535, and got no result, so I assumed it was a misstype. didn't think of checking 7.5 x 53.5. everyday is a schoolday, thanks :)

It would be hell of a round if it was 7.5x535.....Although that long case would take some filling! :p

I am new to this and will post some photos when I learn how to do it. The caliber is 7.5 x53.5 and whilst I understand they will chamber the more modern 7.5 x 55 the bolt is not strong enough with the rear lug's. Load data is available but I doubt I will put them on my ticket. I marvel at the engineering and quality of the build.
