Hey guys I fit my Mauser action to the plastic stock and decided to shoot it with the worn 8mm barrel. I didn't go to the range tooled up to determine precision intending only to safety fire the gun. But it seems it shot well enough that with some tuning of the sights it will work as a beater field gun. When I got home I slugged the barrel at the muzzle end only and came up with these figures. Bore: 0.3243 Lands: 0.308 Groove dia: 0.078 Groove depth: 0.008 I found a great Mauser site where the owner posted results of years of slugging data from as many Mauser designs as he could get his hands on. The figures I got are on the high side of what the blogger found to be normal for Yugo Mausers. So with a bullet dia of 0.323 the gun will obviously be no tack driver, but should be a useful beater field gun. Any comments on experience you have had with a rifle in this condition? For those who remember I am now in a hunt for another action for my 25-06 barrel.
