Schmidt-Rubin 7.5 Swiss At the Range

Schmidt-Rubin in 7.5 Swiss benched for accuracy testing.


We ran across a guy shooting a Schmidt-Rubin the other day. Very nice rifle. Since we were also running a straight-pull rifle (Blaser R8), it was kind of a neat coincidence. The caliber was 7.5 Swiss in a military loading. The brand was called GP 11.  The really interesting information about the GP 11 loading is it’s popularity with match shooters in Europe. It seems…and I stress seems…that competition shooters choose to run the military loading as opposed to hand-loading.

But what does that have to with the price of tea in Europe? Or ammo in The US? Yes….the cost. At the time of this writing, I am seeing 480 round cans of 7.5×55 Swiss for $275. In this time of high ammo costs, that reads like a very good price for match ammo. Maybe one day I will have a modern rifle in 7.5 Swiss.
