I finally received the 7.65 French Long ammunition (for a MAS38 submachinegun) that I had ordered in October 2020.

 

It appears to be well-made but I have never used it before.  I couldn't find anyone else who currently manufactures this now apparently rare caliber.

 

Anyone here have any experience with Steinel ammo in general and 7.65 French Long in particular?

I didnt know they made 7.65 French L. I bought dies and brass and hand loaded for my 1935A. May order some as the pricing is great for such a scarce round!!

Thanks

I have ordered some 7.65 French Long from Buffalo Arms, but it has a soft point (they call it a jacketed RNSP bullet.)  works fine in a 1935A, but is unreliable in a MAS 38.  Ive had some fail to feed because the soft tip hits the feed ramp and jams.  I think I, too, may try some of the Steinel for my MAS 38.  It is much cheaper than the Buffalo Arms as well.

Company appears to be located in Ohio.  Their website mentions they "small shop", so I would guess the ammo is made in the USA.

I believe that the majority of their ammunition is loaded on Starline Manufacture Brass.
