    "...the unique craftsmanship..." I'll say. Really well done too. I'm guessing it was done for use out of a blind. Long eye relief scope with a very short butt stock would work well when sitting. Might have been for a wheel chair bound shooter/hunter.
    There was a 6.5 x 57 Mauser. And a 6.3 X 53R R/K FINNISH. Be easier to convert/rebarrel one rimmed cartridge to another. Although there was a rimmed 6.5 x 57 too. Listed here under European Sporting Rifle. Warning: This site can keep you busy for hours. snicker.

    9.3x57 I would guess.

    There is no need to guess since it clearly is marked and papered as 6.3 x 57. Thanks for the link, might indeed be a hybrid of different cartridges.

    Whatever.

    Anyone else notice that the sight bridge is a complete replacement somewhat different from the original? A very carefully machined one too.

    6.3 is close to 6.35 which is metric .250"

    How about a case based on the 7.92 x 57R, as used in a lot of single-shot arms, doubles and Drillings, necked down? After all, there were lots of variants on the rimless version.

    However to work in a Ross-length magazine and to also be rimmed, could it not be another variant of the classic .25-.303 as used extensively in Australiaicon and in different versions, in Canadaicon? A "raw" .303 case is 56.44mm; so, close enough.

    As a newly-joined member, I keep coming across these old threads that capture my interest. I can't help but ask for an update. Did you solve the ammo riddle? Have you fired this piece yet?
    For my own part, I side with the general consensus already offered: The workmanship looks to be excellent, the form is of such unprepossessing ugliness, that it must have a great purpose, because necessity is the mother of invention - and only a mother could find this weapon attractive!

    No I still have that rifle. If you want to solve it and want to go through the hassle of importing it to Canadaicon, I'd be willing to sell it.

    And I'd love to buy it. It's a Ross, it's an oddball, it exhibits excellent workmanship, and it offers a mystery to boot. This festering boil would be a great fit in my collection. The hassle of importing into Canadaicon wouldn't put me off a bit - I love a challenge. What IS insurmountable is the restrictive system of firearm ownership in our country these days. Buying federally-sanctioned dope from provincially-run drug dealerships is easy. Buying a firearm borders on a criminal act. Our current permit system has morphed into a de-facto long-gun registry, and I refuse to allow mine to be registered, so I no longer acquire complete weapons. I accumulate parts only. Otherwise, I'd jump at the chance, trust me.

    So the beast has resurfaced. She screams for a Schuetzen hook style butt plate for completion.

    Some do, some don't; some will, some won't; I might ...

    I think that would complete it too. Looks right as the butt is square. I wonder if there's screw holes there?
