Thought I would get some mauser's warmed up for hunting season, I'll be taking the German duv-41 and a Yugo M24/47 out to try some cast bullets. 180 grn RNFP w/gas check using IMR 4227 and IMR 4198 with loads directly out of Lyman's Cast Bullet Handbook. Next weekend is the Lever-gun weekend, 300 Savage, model 99, 375 Marlin, and the 94 in 30-30.:cool: the 24/47 is top in 2nd pic

tahoe2, some good looking fire power there!
Very, very nice. My vote is for the one in the top picture but they are all nice.
Thanks for sharing.
Patiently waiting for the range report.
greyhawk, thanks, that German 98k is an all original GI bringback. Unfortunately the stock finish is not, I had to sand and refinish it due to it being wrapped (and stuck) in a wool GI blanket for some 20 years from something that we never figured out what ! The blueing was not affected and still holds a 70% blue. The bore is dark, dirty & pitted all the way through, but it still prints 3" groups @ 100 with Hornady's 170 RN @ 2700 fps. Plenty good for deer & bear to 200 yds or so; I thought I would see how it likes cast-boolits, if at all. The M24/47 Yugo likes Sierra 175's @ 2600 and does 2" @ 100 (amazing), those are both benched and things open up a little off hand, but still decent. :cool:
