Out of all the rounds I've shot, 147 TulAmmo seem to be most accurate when I shoot.
i have heard some people get really good results reloading and using heavier bullets in the 160 gr. and up, and getting better accuracy than the factory loads.

might be something to check into.

any push feed design is a departure in a sense from the Mauser design IMO.
They still use the basic opposing front locking lug and cocking design.

180gr Yugo M30(J) ammo shoots great. BTW, The Swede is not a strait pull, it is a '94, or '96 Mauser action design when it comes to military rifles. I think you ment a Swiss strait pull. The 203gr is a real thumper, they shoot well. As far as cleaning your 91/30, boiling water down the bore and on the bolt face, clean as usual. Takes minutes.
I own a PU, a Low turret '98, many Swede's, a few other Mausers and Swiss K31. The Swede's and K31 open sight are very accurate. The K98 Low turret will beat the PU 91/30, but not by much. Love 'em all.

Forgive my ignorance but won't the boiling water create possible rust down the road?
I did mean a Swiss. In the midst of typing I forgot it was Swiss straight pull.

you use the boiling water to neutralize the corrosive salts in the primers and powders. i have heard that water and Windex can also be used as well. but you still need to use a bore solvent afterwards to remove any lead, copper or powder fouling, along with oiling the bore to prevent rusting.

Boiling water evaporates almost immediately, It does dissolve corrosive salts.

It is the soap in windex that works. The ammonia is as harmful as the salts. It will remove bluing.

Every country that produced ammo for some reason smells unique.
Egyptian 8x57 was one of my favorites. I've become quite fond of Yugo. Soviet has a skunky aroma. The worst is ammo from India. I think they alternate goat hair and donkey dung. I have a lot of M80 7.62x51 ammo that is quite interesting. Indian made, very hot. Not one of the years that were reported to be quite dangerous, but very interesting to shoot. It is sticking around for when there is no more.

I am partial to bolt action rifles, some modern, but mostly mil-surps. The Mosin bug bit me hard enough have somewhere over 60 of the things from at least 8 countries. I have a handful of Finnish Mosins that are all outstanding shooters. The Soviet and Eastern block rifles are of varying quality but all shoot better than my skill level.

I have an authentic PU sniper that is deadly accurate, but I have a hard time with the scope picture. I did have two Chinese Mosins that were smooth-bores and would keyhole at 10 yards (if you could hit the paper). I sold them both to a Republican . I also have a Chinese M-44s that is in new condition and it is as nice a carbine as you could ask for, both in looks and performance.

My favorite centerfire, modern, bolt is a Austrian Voere in 30.06 from the early 60s. It is built on a Mauser action and is quite accurate and as smooth as German engineering can make it. It is the only modern centerfire rifle that I have scoped.

I also have some .22 bolts that are a lot of fun to plink with.

I shoot bolts far more often than semi-autos because I just plain like them.
