Re: deutsche waffen
Like PS says it is PROBABLY 7x57, but have it either checked with a gunsmith or make a cast of the chamber to be sure.
If it's an actual K98, it probably was rechambered, and if so, I can't see why somebody would go to a 7x57, so it then COULD be a 7mm Mag, or even some other 7mm Wildcat...as good a chance as any.
But if it ISN'T a 98, then it's probably a 7x57...
The 7x57 is a decent deer round, and is seeing a small resurgence here. It has always been popular in Europe as a "stag" cartridge, and is available, loaded by several makers. I see it at shows all the time.
The problems we face today are
there because the people who work
for a living are outnumbered by those
who vote for a living.
