hey guys!
I have a 1903 turkish mauser action (barrel was junk) that I want to play around with. Give me some ideas as to what caliber I should rebarrel it in. I have been thinking about some really strange stuff like 50 alaskan, 257 roberts......etc....I really
don't want to have to modify the bolt so the 50 is out.
Any ideas?

The .257 Roberts will make a nice rifle. Choice of caliber depends on your intent for the rifle's use. George

Anything with that head size... from .22-250 to 40 Whelen.

What do you have need for? Alternately, what don't you have?
