I have a nice old VZ-24 Mauser action that I've lapped the lugs , trued the action , drilled and tapped the reciever , changed the safety , changed the trigger and polished the exterior metal in prep for blueing . Also plan to jewell the bolt body , claw and follower .
Anyway it is my intention at the moment to barrel it with a Shilen #3 or #4 carbon steel barrel and finish it at 24" . Want to chamber it in 6.5-06 or 6.5-06AI .
Anyway (this is taking kinda long ) I am wondering if I ever come to the UK or Ireland is it legal to bring ammo that has a headstamp thats not what the ammo is actually for ?
I normally make 6.5-06 outta 25-06 brass so thats what the headstamp would say . Seems to me I remmember reading about some places back in the day saying the ammo needed to be head stamped correctly for the cartridge it was used as .
Would this be the case in Engalnd , Ireland , Scotland or Northern Ireland ?
