I have used the $83.99 short chambered Mauser barrels from Brownells. with great success.
Working now on a 1893 Mauser in 257 Roberts.
The first time shooting with the 87 grain bullets gave about 1.25 inch groups. With the 117 grain bullet And 3031 I got a 1/2 inch group.
I built five other actions up with equal results.
They like the heaver bullets.
Failure is part of success!
This year will go down in history. For the first time, a civilized nation has full gun registration. Our streets will be safer, our police more efficient, and the world will follow our lead into the future!" -Adolf Hitler,1935"
