Yes 7.65 Argentine, loaded with 174gr Hornady interlocks at 2400 fps, the bore wasn't the best, shooting 1.5" groups at 100 yards.

I got mine from a friend, who in turn got it from his friend in Col. who used it on deer and Elk. It`s been some what sporterized, front sight and rear peep, and it shoots so well I`ve often thought of mounting a scope, just to see what it could really do. Love hunting with it, and have taken deer. I do like the looks of the scope on yours. Any issues in mounting one. I ASSUME the receiver is case hardened?

Thanks

It's hunting season lets see those Mausers! I will likely warm up the barrel on the 6.5x55 Ackley.

my 1916 sporterized oberndorf, given to me by a former neighbor, is getting some work by a gunsmith friend: proper handle, bobbed and crowned, XS peep and front ramp sight. i'd already mounted a timney trigger, and reworked the ancient stock. it'll be done in the next few days. it WILL get to hunt deer ...

More than four decades ago a Canadian veteran let me shoot shoot one just like that at the range, including the wooden holster stock.

I tried to pay him for the ammunition, but he refused - said that he'd been paid enough watching a young fellow take part in history. smile

Knowing that my hero Winston Churchill carried one in to battle made me feel extra special as I sent three stripper clips (of 10 shots each I think) downrange. grin

Your post brought these memories flooding back - Thank you SO much!

Killer photo 8MMX57JS!

I'm a guessing that you had BBQed tenderloins that evening with a 6 pack of Canada's finest brew.

This deer you killed looks like an identical twin to one I killed, looks like we were hunting in the same area as well lol

Not sure which picture app you are using, if you are not using https://imgur.com/ you may want to give it a try, it is very easy to upload pictures and post them on Forums in various sizes.

After uploading an image click on it and on the right you will see View and Edit Post.

Under the heading, BBCode (message boards & forums) click copy. Before you copy, select the size you would like to post.

You will have to set up an account, it's easy and Free.
