I have one of these potential money pits as well ...... and was wondering how much work would be needed to make anything other than a "whatever x57" based cartridge feed properly.

The action is not strong enough (46000 CUP limit) to run full power 7 or 8x57 loads in ..... there is always the traditional answer of .257 Roberts...... but I think the original 7x57 Mauser is superior to that.

7.62x39? Would that feed though the original internal magazine?
