Suprised I don't hear more about this round on the site, it's an excellent one. I have a Persian Mauser built by Bruno in 1935, that is a master piece. The workmanship is top shelf. Still shoots like a dream. Only complaint is that the sights are very fine. I couldn't imagine trying to shoot it in low light. We shoot 1940s Turkish ball out of it and any other surplus stuff we can find. Always a good swabbing with Sweets 7.62 afterwords.
