Re: Re-chambering recommendations for 7mm Mauser

After ten years in the back of the safe with a broken Canjar trigger this gun was finally shot again this morning.

With 162gr A-Max and some of my old horde of DuPont IMR 4831 and the 3-9x Weaver off my -06 it shot just over 1/2" at 100 yards using a Harris bipod and an improvised rear rest. Not to shabby.

Things I learned today. 1) I don't like the Timney that is on it now as much as the old Canjar. 2) My shooting technique is really rusty after 10 years playing with shotguns.

Good fun though. Seven rifles went to the range along with my XP and Contender. Single projectile firearms are still fun!
