I'm taking my one & only Mauser in 9x57 out to Wyoming this fall for elk season. It'll be my primary gun, but I do plan on having my little Remington .358 for back up.

Don't have as many Mausers as i used to. In the time I have left to hunt, I plan to use just my favorites and I've been getting rid of what my family isn't interested in. I've owned many over the years and have seldom been displeased with them.

Robtattoo, I was shooting my 9X57 this morning before it got too hot. I decided to make it into a dedicated cast bullet rifle and am zeroing in on my hunting load. Looks as though it will be a 250 gr FP with powder coating at a little over 2000 fps. Don't have elk in Alabama, but I think it'll work on our whitetails! Unfortunately, mine is not a fine old original like yours. It has a Shilen .358" barrel on a FN action. It worked well with a Hornady 250 RN on this buck:

I have far fewer than szihn and I mostly hunt M70's and Kimbers. Even so, I still like my Mausers. My gunsmith thinks the .308 Norma is particularly well made.

1894 Swede Carbine in 6.5x55, new sporter stock, modified for scope use, cock on opening Dayton Traister conversion and trigger. Burris 2-7x35mm scope,
98K Mauser sporterized, rebarreled to .243 Winchester. Carved wood and a plastic stock as well. B&L Scope.
98 Mauser sporter, 7x61 S&H Super, 26 in Medium heavy barrel. The action has the cutout for the thumb and the safety on the left side. ction has commerccial markings though. 6-18x40 Redfield.
FN 98K 1940 vintage. Sporterized and rebarreled to .35 Whelen, wood and plastic stocks, Gentry 3-positon safety, removeable peep and iron sights as well as a 2-7 Leupy.
FN commercial 98 Mauser, factory .308 Norma Mag, side safety, by Interarms. Scope is a 3-9x40 Leupold with LR dots.
I would like a LW .270 next.
