Despite having destroyed and laid waste utterly to the bad gen from the English-language literature about Swiss 7.5×53.5 mm GP90 being semismokeless, The Bloke sets up a comparison, just because. Using original 7.5×53.5mm GP90 bullets in his 1889 Schmidt-Rubin, he loads 4 cartridges:
1x 32gn RS40, modern smokeless powder,
1x 31gn PC88 charge from an original GP90,
1x 30gn Swiss No.2 black powder to simulate semismokeless,
1x 65gn Swiss No.4 black powder.
The results are unsurprising. But the comparison is interesting all the same.

Switzerland’s most popular native-English-language guns & shooting channel! Probably. Maybe. I guess. A somewhat off-the-wall and tongue-in-cheek look at firearms, military history and shooting, and a jolly good tilt at the windmills of fuddlore to go with it. And the odd off-topic vid about Switzerland, or whatever happens to take our fancy. We normally launch “in-series” vids on a Friday (early launch on a Wednesday via Patreon and the FB page https://www.facebook.com/Blokeontherange/ ), out-of-series vids launch precisely… whenever.
