Reloading 7x57R for a Valmet 412 combi gun
Iím looking for some advice for when I eventually reload for my new (to me) Valmet 412 in 12/7x57R.
I have read on this site and elsewhere that 7x57R should be reloaded starting at 10% less than 7x57 for the weaker actions of break open rifles (compared to bolt actions or Ruger No. 1s). However, this appears to be intended for other makes and designs than the Valmet 412.
As the 412 action is designed to handle the more powerful cartridges of .30-06 and 9.3x74R, does one need to load down the 7x57R?
Thanks for your time.
