Thanks for your replies. My Father In Law never got to shoot it because he could never find ammunition. I wasn't sure how safe it was and never helped him find it. After he passed away, I remembered the rifle and researched it to find out about it. I found some ammunition that the local gun shop had produced by necking brass from another caliber to the 7.35mm. As I understand, the gun was sighted in at 300 yards, and the soldiers were trained to fire at the enemies belly. If the enemy was actually 200 yards away, it would hit the chest and if they were 100 yards away it would hit the head.
