    "...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.
