Sunday I went out and shot a box of Sellier &Bellot 196gr SPCE
2592 fps per box.
Bench and bags 100 yds 3 power sunday and monday morning.
Big difference from the PPU stuff.
Got it home copper cleaned the barrel sunday afternoon.
Went out next morning wanting to see where the cold clean bore shot went and then a boresnaked x3 shot went.
Someone left a shoot and see target down the 100 yd line.
Slight 5 to 7 mph R to L wind intermittent.
1st shot cold clean bore right at the 9.
Boresnake x 3 2nd shot little more left and little higher
Brought the target home stuck it on a peice of cardboard , cause I like to look at it.
Use it early next fall to shoot again to confirm zero.

Those are nice rifles. My SIL has one in 30-06 that belonged to his late father who was killing in an accident when Jeff was 12. I had it it fixed up for him a couple yrs ago getting the tang crack repaired, refinished and bedded. That thing now shoots 3/4" groups with factory ammo. VG rifle.

I have two FN-98s in JC Higgins M-50s. One is now becoming a full custom 275 Rigby (Rigby Highland Stalker clone) and the other will probably get to be a 9.3x62 some day.

I like many types of firearms, but looking at my rifles, I think it's safe to say Mausers are my favorite bolt actions.
My Mausers are :
25-06
Two 270 Winchesters
Two 30-06s
300 H&H
8X57
Two 9.3X57s
9.3X62
375H&H
404 Jeffery

12 in all.

I love Mausers

Friend from church hosted us at their farm where I did some crop damage removal with 100 Gr TTSXs & 4755 doing 3400-ish was just what I needed to flip the switch DRT.

Love this rifle; customizing old bubba’d military rifles is a labor of love 💕!

There's still so much that goes so right
And beauty abounds?

And the rain comes down

Four Mauser action rifles adorn my Gunsafes. All are commercial mausers, but very fine rifles, all.

#1 - Husky 1640 in 8x57JS
#2 - Parker Hale M81 Classic, in 308 Norma Magnum [Santa Barbara Action]
#3 - Identical twin to #2 above, but a bit nicer lumber.
#4 - Custom built rifle, built on yet another Santa Barbara Action. Benchmark 26" 1-9" twist barrel
also chambered 308 Norma magnum. This rifle shoots 200 AB or Partition or A-Frames into ½ moa
right out to 500 meters + if i do my part.

These are all "workhorse" rifles, and have all taken game, mostly moose and elk, but the 8x57 has several
Black Bears to it's credit, all one-shot kills.
What is not to like about those Mausers?? Regards, Dave..

No pictures but there's a few pre-WWI and WWII sporting Mausers in the toy box. A 9 X 57 Sauer & Sohn, 8 X 57 (.318 groove) Strover,, 9 X 71 Peterlongo by Johann Peterlong in Innsbruck, 9.3 X 57 Mod. 46 Husqvarna, 7 X 64 Brenneke by Wilhelm Brenneke in Berlin….and it seems I'm missing a couple....

Almost a Mauser, JC Higgins M51-L built on a Husky HVA action chambered in 308. The HVA is a modified small ring mauser stretched to M98 length with many of the features of the M98.The same action as the Husky 1640 rifle. This is one of 3 does I took with the rifle last fall using cast 180 gr bullets at roughly 2150 fps. Doe was nearly head on, impact was at the shoulder/neck crease, exit is under the rifle in the picture.

My prime elk rifle is a .35 Whelen on an Oberndorf milsurp. Back up rifles are a commercial FN 30-06, commercial FN .270, several J.C. Higgins in 30-06 and a 7x57 based on a J.C. Higgins M50 that was at one time a .270. Latest acquisition is a Husqvarna 640 barreled action in 30-06 that I've cobbled into a stock to see how it shoots. If I like they way it shoots I'll have it put into a decent stock and hunt it hard.
It probably would have beem simpler to just say all my serious hunting rifles are based on Mauser actions. Nuff said?

My one and only Mauser just happens to be my all time favorite rifle. It's a 1952 FN Mauser 98 in factory 7X57. Great shooting rifle with 160 grain Partitions and H4350 powder. Only problem is that when I bought it, it came in an UGLY Interarms Mark X stock. I want a nicer stock for it, but funds just won't allow me to indulge myself right now.
