Re: mausers?

started out life as a 9 x 57 on a mauser 98 action
is now a .358 Norma Magnum with a Bevan King 24" #4 barrel
MPI fiberglass stock
Weaver 2-10x50 on Leupold rings and mounts ( I think thats what they are, built this one more than a few years ago now)
Parker Hale magazine kit
Harris bipod
It now also has a Painkiller 3 port brake on it, don't have a pic of it with the new brake on it yet though
Great fun to shoot and fills my freezer more years then not, this one is my main hunting rifle

Re: mausers?

This is an actual stamped FN Mauser. It was first built on as a 240 Wby with a 1-10 twist barrel and killed a lot of local wihtetail deer. I then decided to have it rebarreled to a 1-8 twist 30 inch barrel plus more for the brake again in 240 Wby. It has a Joel Russo Stock and a really good Leupold scope. With 115 Bergers is has proven itself several times on antelope at ranges beyond 1K. It is extremely accurate.

Here is a nice buck I killed at 686 yards with it.
