For N.A. the .300WM is hard to beat as an overall good hunter. For Grizzly, I'd want a bigger piece of lead, I'm a girly man. No Knives for griz! ok, maybe 1, but it has scrumptious mother of pearl handles!

Can you clarify if the Mauser is reliable, or quality and accurate?? I can't tell from your post.
My 7.82 war bird is a mauser action and it is very very accurate. As a general rule mausers are very reliable and very accurate

It actually besides controlling the cycling, fully supports the case head which increases accuracy. The Mauser acion is not 1 action, it is a family of actions, the '98(1898) being the strongest. I shoot '94, '96, ,'98 actions. Not a fault w/ any. As they progressed, they got stronger.

Have you ever had a round "pop" out of a push feed? Really?

So does a Mauser claw type action work well if you sled one into the chamber as to fire a single shot? Or does it perfer or need to be fed out of the internal magazine?

I've been told by guys I've been shooting with and are really into Mausers, not to sled one into the chamber and to always let the round be fed through the magazine with these Mauser type actions.

The True Mauser only feeds from the magazine correctly. That is why a push feed was made, for those that wanted the option of a single, drop in the chamber rifle. A Modified Mauser. Uses the same type locking system without the "burden" of pushing the round into the mag well. I have about 15 Classic Mauser rifles.

your cartridge selection is good, for the type of hunting you intend and loaded with the proper ammo will work just fine.

what condition is the mauser in? is it original? if so it might be worth more left original possibly. what is your budget for the project? what are your skills in working on your firearms?

jpattersonnh I know the 300 is not a dangerous game cartidge but we all know many bad animals have been killed with way smaller too. Don't think any guides would take you with a 300 mag today for big bear. Good enough round for 99% just not a small game round unless rolling his own. I want a 375 if going for grizzly. But i ain't going there.

Thats what I thought. The Classic Mauser type actions only feed from the magazine correctly.

My warbird is a true mauser action and it works just fine single shot style. W one small problem that is....i cant load it that way and turn the safety on. It has to be ready fire at all times if i hand feed it.
