Our philosophy is based upon knowledge and continuity

Why reduced loads?


  1. Less recoil
  2. Less stress on material especially on WW I & WW II Weapons
  3. Subsonic loads for suppressor
  4. Reducing danger of background hits when penetrating the target
  5. Almost no heating up of the barrel
  6. Powder is completely burned while bullet is still inside the barrel
  7. No muzzle flash


  1. Due to the short length of the bullet you will not be able to load the cartridges' from the magazine (this refers to the in test used 7.62mm 2A1 Rifle) but have to single load it by pressing the cartridge half way into the magazine while forwarding the bold to enable the extractor to slide into the rim of the case without pressure forcing (the extractor) it. 
  2. If you will try to feed the cartridge's by force you will (one  day) manage to break your extractor for sure.


This is the maximum precision you can achieve with a Military Ordnance Weapon (here a 7.62mm 2A1 Rifle) and their original Open Sights in combination with TIN STAR LOADS.

The groups will / can be reduced using a (Parker Hale 5A for the Enfield No1 MK III) Diopter Sight or a scope.

Nevertheless it proofs that you will be able to achieve 100% Target Hits on targets up to 100 Meter with open Sights - depending upon condition of your weapon and your abilities as shooter.

Concerning reloading ammunition basic discipline should be taken care like 

  • Using brass cases from one manufacturer (plus maybe the same batch)
  • Neck sizing (not recommended for straight pull Ordnance Rifles) to prevent unwanted Case lengthening
  • Neck trimming to same length 
  • If you use lightweight bullets up to 120 Grains - crimping is advised / to do so make the crimping procedure a own one which is done after you seated the bullets (to obtain a uniform crimping pressure)

Precision is the basic - Precision is the everyday same procedure based upon available possibilities as fundamental base of returning possibilities

As soon we have our shooting chronograph we will start checking the velocity of this TIN STAR loads.
