Re: Mauser m48
Dawg, the M-48 action will take the .270 WSM in the mag well with lots of room for long bullets. The mag well won't take a 6.5 x .284 seated to maximum O.A.L. Best I recall, the mag will accomodate up to about 3.2" O.A.L., but am not positive.
Something that may help you is that the M-48 action screw spacing is the same as the small ring Mausers, and with some work aftermarket stocks can be used. The std Mauser 98 spacing is too long. You might be able to find an aftermarket stock for the M-48. I think Brownell's used to sell them. "Woodplus" as I recall.
