    The first Mauser I rebarreled was tested by tying the barreled action to a offset disc plow and firing with a string while hiding behind the back tire of the tractor. The brass looks good to me, congrats! That will be a neat gun.

    Texas by God, thanks for the input. That's what I was hoping 2 hear. By the way, I appreciate the help you gave me along the way with the build. I guess re-barreling an action is possible in your shed. With the right instructions of course. At least possible with no special tools if ya have a Savage type barrel assy. Randy.

    Gentlemen, I have another update. I finally made it to the local Rod n Gun here in El Paso. I tried a lot of different loads. All shot at 25 yards. I will try longer ranges at the next outing.

    All rounds fired were with the Lee 200 gr FP bullet.

    The first firing string is 9.0. 10.0, 11.0, and 12.0 grains of 700X, gas checked. You can see the shots walkingClick image for larger version.

    The next string is 9.0 grains of Reddot and 10.0 grs of Reddot, Plainbase. Click image for larger version.

    Best part is not a hint of lead. Reddot loads were PB as cast. Gas checked loads sized .358.

    Also, I'm a little bit fuzzy today. To raise your point of aim do you need to lower your front sight. I had to adjust the rear a little more than I"m comfortable with. Not happy with how high up the rear sight is.

    Thanks to all involved. Randy

    P.S. How bout them Sooners.

    You’ll need a lower dovetail sight for that 700 ramp so you can lower the rear sight.

    It was made by “inthe10ring” over on mausercentral.net. He is a one man operation and does a great job.

    UG: I like the islands, swept back grip and looks to have just right drop for open sights,the man has a good pattern.
    sixgunner452: yes lower front sight, if you can't get "there" then a new lower front sight ramp may be in order.
    Hell, I was there!

    We need a shooting report on this project! LOL.
    Sorry; I just saw this a year later. Correct spec 6.5x55 cases are as you described but American cases from Remington have a .308 case head. The web area is still full 6.5x55 diameter. I converted a Yugo 48 to 6.5x55 and liked the way the Remington cases fit better than European cases.
