A bit long this one, but I thought some people might like to see the whole process, and how some rifles will really like some ammo and not others.
Here's Bloke's "Minty Mauser", which is a Spanish M43 (kinda almost VZ24 / Kar98k configuration), with a scope mount and turned down bolt handle done by Hege. It's built as a 7.62 NATO / .308 Win rifle rather than an 8x57, but they didn't bother to fix the magazine to run it properly, and a quirk of the M43 receiver design means that it doesn't eject reliably either.
But it seems to rather like that Winchester Supreme 168gn match ammo!
It is NOT a "Spanish Small-Ring Mauser" - those are Mauser 93 actions and have a habit of not holding .308 Win. This is a Mauser 98 action!

Firearms history, blokesplaining firearms mechanics, mythbusting, shooting sports and kitschy sketches all in one place. An often dry and sarcastic look at whatever takes the Bloke's and the Chap's fancy in the world of guns and shooting.
