I got the ammo figured out and it runs perfect. Sorry it’s a short video, I started sticking 10-15 rounds through it and it was so much fun I almost had no ammo for the video. I was so excited when I was done. It ran great.

Impressive ! Sounded smooth, did you load light pressure? Straight wall, I would have figured you would have needed to prelube the casings but the fabric belt would have wiped that off. How about HK chamber fluting? Whats your trick?
edit: I just saw your barrel conversion post and now I'm really impressed!

Most of us are you here trying to figure out how to lower our ammo cost. That’s what drove the 8mm / 54r conversions for the 1919 and Vickers. (54 v 303)

and here mike is out making his cost per round way higher.

I tried light pressure and high velocity.
the video is showing commercial high velocity 300gr at 2058 FPS. The fusee/recoil spring is set tight that’s why the rate of fire is high. I’m going for 400gr at 1400 FPS
