Bore Lapping a Oberndorf .308 Mauser Barrel

Rifles need to be cleaned after every round of shooting. In fact, I clean after every ten shot strings (5 shots each) when I am shooting for 8mm cast bullet accuracy. Last night was different. Last night I started with the Oberndorf .308 Mauser. The gunsmith and I inspected the barrel with his bore scope and…

Karabiner Experiment: Part Two

Well, good news (I think). Seems other Mauser Loaders have had a similar problem with the 8mm karabiner round.  Big, fat and long is a problem for the “Delicate” throat of a Yugo 48 Mauser. Seems these folks are setting the bullet to the last groove and crimping a bit. When the round is chambered…

The 8mm Karabiner Experiment

MoJo Mauser Sighting System

My “Full-time job is as Exec. Director of a residential children’s Camp. As such, May thru September is, well, busy.

Cast Bullet Accuracy

Alot of people think that making a 8mm Mauser rifle accurate requires alot of money. Not true. The 8mm Mauser, as well as other factory Mausers, is one of the most accurate rifles ever produced during wartime or peacetime. If a Mauser rifle does not shoot worth a hoot, its a good chance the barrel…
