Experiences with the Mauser m18 6.5 Creedmoor

I just took the gamble on this rifle without hardly any reviews on accuracy out yet by any chance, have any of you fine people had any experiences with the new Mauser M18 in any, of the available calibers that are on the market yet? Thanks for all replies!

I assume you believe everyone has heard of the Muaser M18. If I want another Mauser I build it, I know the standard reply is "it is cheaper to purchase new that to build'; all of my parts are paid for including the reamers, vats etc.

"...the standard reply..." Absolutely, but that'd be no fun. snicker.
It's just another synthetic stocked commercial hunting rifle. Runs about a grand up here.
"...reviews on accuracy..." Those are mostly irrelevant as accuracy depends on the ammo used.

Get out there and shoot the thing and let us know how it does. You can be the 1st to post a report.

I'm betting it is better than average. They've incorporated several newer design features that have proven to be accurate, yet inexpensive to build.

Just for reference, how much can one expect to pay for one of these. I've not seen one for sale anywhere yet.

Doesn't anyone read any Gun rags anymore?
This is the working man's new Mauser, it is featured in Rifle Magazine.
The author of the article doesn't care for synthetic stocks but remarked this one he would say he liked.
It was a .270 win, and it was really accurate with a couple types of commercial ammo.
He really dug the trigger even though it's housed in polymer, also he said that he only had one issue because he "short stoked" a cartridge and it failed to pick it up, but it ejected spent cases with authority.
I like the rifle, and have found them from various suppliers for around the 575.00 mark.
I sent an email to Mauser directly asking them to consider 6.5×55 Swede and 7×57 Mauser.....
