The number one points scorer in 1K BR has always and is still using a Whitworth 98. He is shooting a 300 Ack and 210s with RL 27.

I just had Rocky Mountains Rifles build a 6.5X300 Win Mag on a Parker Hale 1200V..

Still waiting on dies from Redding for it.

Rifle looks good.. Hope it shoots good.

Re: Use a Mauser action?

From memory a great book on Mausers and modern rifles based on the 98 action is by Jerry Kuhaunsen (sp?) it is, or certainly was until recently available from Brownells.

I think the Title was Mauser 98- "A Workshop Manual"- covers all aspect of gunsmiting these actions including hardness valiues and opening out the action for length of cartridge and the bolt face for larger head sized cases, if you are serious about using a 98 action then seek a copy of this book.

Re: Use a Mauser action?

I have two custom rifles built on M 98 czech vz 24 actions. A 7x57 mauser and a 6.5 -06 .Both rifles are highly accurate . Some advice, I would stay away from using turkish mausers, 94 mausers actions , 95 mausers actions, spanish mauser actions. I would use M98 mauser actions to build a custom rifle.With my 6.5-06 I can hit shooting clays out to 500 yds with it.I would also buy the Mauser Bolt Action book by Jerry Kuhnhausen for reference.Goodluck

Before I built my 338 win mag I sent my spanish mauser action in and had it harden and tested works great and it cost me 75 bucks

Re: Use a Mauser action?

I have built a few very nice rifles on mausers, the one on the top is my long range rifle built on a Mauser MKX, I put a pac-nor 26 inch barrel on it Caliber 7mm RM

here is a 5 shot group from the 7mm Rem Mag

here are a few more I made in 308
