Looking for the length of 1930's 175 gr 7x57. I know rifles of that era were "long throated" to accommodate ammunition of that era.

Thank you,
JDG

Doublegun:

These are the lengths for the older 173 to 175 gr. rounds in my collection (some may be early post-WWII, but lengths wouldn't be much different between the pre- and post-):
C. B. (Cartoucherie Belge) RNSP - 3.064";
D.C.Co. (Dominion) RNSP - 3.046";
D M (predecessor of DWM) FNSP - 3.034";
D M RNMC - 3.063";
DWM RNSP - 3.056";
ELEY RNSP - 3.064";
F de M ((Mexican arsenal) RNMC - 3.046";
KYNOCH RNSP - 3.057";
REM-UMC RNSP - 3.026";
RWS RNSP - 3.061";
U.M.C. RNMC - 3.051";
W.R.A.Co. RNMC - 3.057 TO 3.061";
W.R.A.Co. RNSP - 3.058".

Most of the more modern rounds with this bullet weight were of similar length.

Hope this helps.

Cheers, Al
