Guys,

I have a yugo mauser 98 in 8mm. Great gun, nice new stock. I would like to rechamber some day, but the yugo receiver is a bit shorter than regular. A 30-06 size cartridge won't fit, such as an 8mm-06, etc (I guess). What other good, larger calibers (shorter case would be available?

Thanks.

Dave

The 8mm case has been produced in 9.3mm, 9mm (35 cal) on down to 6mm. Take your pick. The .308 has been produced in .358, .308, 7mm, etc down to 6mm. Take your pick. All have the same rim size and would work. Too many choices, I know.

You might want to try this months "Rifle" magazine. It goes into what's involved in sporterizing.

I was at the shop of the gunsmith that I use and he had a Mauser that he was setting up for the 300 WSM. There is more work but it would make for a nice rifle.
