    First Test With My Brand New Brazilian and Peruvian Mausers

    Yesterday I've been at the range for trying out my new Mauser 7x57.
    After adjusting the elevation (first shot was 14 inches low, then I set 300 meters and finally 500, getting it right. First picture shows the first three really aimed rounds. Picture 2 the remaining rounds of that series), I then shot a second series of 15 rounds at 100 meters (3rd picture).





    All in the 10, until suddenly a brazing sun lit up the range.
    So, 9 at 11 'o clock and two more 9 at 7/8 'o clock.
    What a pity.......
    I let myself get distracted.
    Anyway, my first reloads seem to be working just fine, as the rifle also does!
    I must say, I really loved that 7mm round. It is sweet and full of character!
    I also shot the Peruvianicon (two weeks ago), still good, but not as good yet.
    First two shots right on 8, then better.
    The trigger is a bit of an issue, since it has been filed so much that it is now a single stage one.
    Gotta get it right again.
    But also here, immediately got good reloads. The 20 rounds are with 4 different reloads, so maybe the results are not that bad.
    I should have made only one or two reloads, but I'll catch up and make it good in a couple of weeks.

    What bullets are you using? My Chileanicon 1895 really loves the 173 gr RN from Hirtenberger.

    I just had 180 hrs from S&B, FMJBT, an he seems to like them.
    I have now loaded some RN bullets, flat tail 174 grs. (I buy them every now and then in plastic bags) and will try them tomorrow.
    My Mosins and Enfields seem to like them a lot.
    Since they are a bit more expensive then S&B and the results are comparable, I buy them only when I run out of S&B.
    I'll update this post as soon as I'll have shot the new rounds.

    Shot them and done it bad enough not to be proud of the results.
    I have to try again, starting at 100 meters. At 200 I had a lot of problems seing the holes on the black of the target, so it took me a lot to find the right elevation, and at that time I was fairly "pi...d off", enough, at least, not to shoot very well any more with the few rounds left.

    Saturday, 200 meters under stormy weather: wind, rain and snow.
    Low light but still acceptable shooting with my wonderful Brazilianicon Mauser.
    The first target got melted and ripped by the wind and water while getting back to the shooting position, the second held a bit better.
    Visibility was a bit of an issue at times, as well as wind, but I enjoyed my day!

    I sort of love rainy days at the range. I take a Cuban cigar with me ( they are reserved for hunting camp and rainy range days). When the rain gets too heavy, smoke my cigar, enjoy the mountains and peacefulness, play with my rifle etc and wait for a break. usually no fools at the range (except me ! It's supposed to rain tomorrow, range just opened last week (COVID 19 shutdown), so I'm taking some Mosin's and an SVT out to play!
