    Hi people!
    I am newbie here on the forum, but I would like to ask you if you have any experiences with reloading of 7.5mm swiss ordnance revolver/ aka schmidt-rubin 1882. I have bought Berthram shells, .314 and 100 grn cupper plated pb bullets, primers, but I do not know what powder should be better and what load can you recommend me. I read the original ammo was made with black powder and then (when?) they started with smokeless powders. Tried anyone of you to reload it? I would like to try IMR Trailboss, but I am not sure. Any load data aviable?
    Thank you in advance.

    The book "Cartridges of the World, 11th. Edition" says the cartridge for the 7.5 Swiss Army Revolver is identical to, and fully interchangeable with, the 7.5mm Swedish M1887 Nagant Revolver and 7.5mm Norwegian rounds. So, if you could find reloading information for those two rounds, you could use that in your Swiss pistol. Here’s one link I found with handloads for the 7.5 Swedish:
