I had a really good Mouser a few years ago.

She ran off with a raccoon.

i took it out and put a box of 7x57 and it worked great. if anyone is curious i made a video of it with some other rifles and one of the handguns i own. a day of fun. what was amazing was the recoil of this mauser. i was using the truck to brace agains and the recoil was so strong it kept knocking over the camera i had on the hood.


i cant hit the broadside of a barn with this thing and my shoulder was multi colored afterwards and for about a week (note to self, find recoil pads for mauser and shotgun) but it was well worth it

Watch out for some older ammunition marked as 7mm Express,, which is now known as .280 Remington,, a fellow I know picked some up at a Gun Show, thinking he had 7x57,, luckily he could not chamber a round and asked about it later.

The 7x57 is a ***** cat. You should try some of its' larger Mauser brothers. 7x57 is known as an easy recoiling round.

The 7x57 is a very capable round and if handloaded can beat performance of the 7mm08. A very well knowen safari hunter used this round to secure all manners of game including elephants... alot of elephants.

only in the hands of a skilled hunter and shooter using the proper ammo. yes there are some hunters in the past that used the 7x57 to hunt elephants with. but they well above average hunters and most were talented shooters.
