    Might find it under 7.62 French Long

    These people make new 7.62 French Long ammo from scratch. I would hope they might help you with load data. Or at least brass, maybe.

    If you can find a copy of "Cartridges of the World" you may find some load data there. Check you public library.

    I have a few rounds I can copy for OAL, and I can work up a load by starting somewhere between .32acp and .32 H&R Mag, carefully checking for signs of pressure, but I can't help but feel someone somewhere has already done this,and I'm duplicating effort better expended in loading more ammo...

    A guy over at 1911Forum was asking the same thing. See if you can find his thread. Maybe he has load data.

    Are you talking about the 7.65 MAS? It's a rimless cartridge for1935A and 35S pistols.

    If so:
    Lyman #311252 sized .309" about 77 grains weight depending on alloy.
    3.6gr Unique
    .780" case length
    1.19" OAL
    SP Primer
    Start with 3.1 gr

    86 grain bullet at 2.3 gr's of BE giving 1000 with 190 ME using a 7.63 Mauser bullet

    100 grain bullet @ 3.1 of Unique pushing 1030 for 235 ME......Speer's .30 plinker.
