I have a Kar 98 stamped 1910 on the receiver. It was my first deer rifle which my grandfather found leaning against a tree during deer season back in the 50's. The barrel had a bulge and split about an inch down from the muzzle, and as a shop project, I cut off two inches of the barrel and re sweated on the front sight, The bore is dark, but, lands and rifling is visible.
I used to load ammo for it and found at max load the bullets would tumble. I havn't touched the gun in years and now have recently thought to do something with it. A new barrel maybe?
I have a great supply of .308 W reloading components and thought to change to this as I only have dies
for the .323 ammo.
What do you all think?
