I dont really get why everyone says the Sweede in the older Mauser actions cant handle pressure. There are a very limited few actions that cant, but the vast majority of them can. Some of the Sweedish military loads were actually over the recommended max pressure for the "modern only" loading data. I have an old 96 that is shot out. I think just for fun I am going to go P.O. Ackley and see what it will actually take to blow it up. From what the Rockwell numbers on the action turned out to be when we rebarreled it the last time, I am guessing it is going to take one heck of a charge of fast powder behind a heavy bullet.
