A Perfectly Delightful Cartridge

Among the calibers that came from the military is the 7×57 mm Mauser.

It’s surprising how many of our most useful and reliable cartridges started life in the military. Some that quickly come to mind are the .45 Colt, .45 ACP, .308 Win., .223 Rem., and the glorious .30-’06 Sprg. And right in among those, I also have to add another great performer, the 7×57 mm Mauser. The 7×57 mm, although less popular in this country, is an excellent performer featuring good accuracy and moderate recoil.

    Thanks for the great article Jim on the 7×57 Mauser. My first “real rifle” at 12. It was a ’98 Venezualian Carbine. My dad picked it up at OTASCO for $28.00. That was almost 2 months wages as a paperboy. Then he helped me glass bed a Fajin Manlicher stock, and install a Timney trigger. Still a favorite Truck gun. Learned to reload on that caliber also.

    Randy, it doesn’t get any better than that. We just don’t need magnums for 98% of what we do. If a fellow can shoot, he can kill game.

    Thanks for taking the time to comment.
