Trying to understand history of my new Mauser 24/47
I just bought/won a Mauser 24/47, 6.5x55mm caliber at an auction. Was looking for Swedish Mauser and stumbled on this rifle in same caliber. I was under impression all Yugo 24/47 were 8mm and can't find reference to other 6.5x55mm rifles so believe caliber was converted. Is this a common conversion?
I'm eager to pick up this week and shoot and looking for thoughts and feedback on my $160 buy?
