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 8×57, 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!

Switzerland’s most popular native-English-language guns & shooting channel! Probably. Maybe. I guess. A somewhat off-the-wall and tongue-in-cheek look at firearms, military history and shooting, and a jolly good tilt at the windmills of fuddlore to go with it. And the odd off-topic vid about Switzerland, or whatever happens to take our fancy. We normally launch “in-series” vids on a Friday (early launch on a Wednesday via Patreon and the FB page https://www.facebook.com/Blokeontherange/ ), out-of-series vids launch precisely… whenever.
