Have any photos?
In all seriousness, it wouldn't be worth your while. Besides which, its all in bits in my vault at work.

Here's the only photo of it I can find, just before we tested the rifle. The stock looks right, but the barrel looks too long. The chap on the right is my salesman, the chap on the left did odd jobs. I'll get someone to take a photo of the barrel and the stock, and if they can find it, the Mauser action

Here's also a photo of my son after he tried to clear the photocopier.

.30-06 is a very versatile round. Everything from 125 gr for varmints up to 220 gr on things like Moose.

While there are plenty of other calibres available here, the amount of ex-military service Mauser 98 rifles converted to 30-06 (7,62x63 NATO) here makes it one of the most common hunting calibres for large game in Norway.

Strange enough, I don't have any myself, but I'm reloading for my brother, my cousin, two uncles and a couple of buddies, so I'm fairly well used to the calibre.
For our subspecie of moose we usually load the .30-06 with 180 grain rounds at a moderate speed, maiking it usefull on almost any game here.
The favourite bullets are Norma Oryx, and the Nosler Partition for those who don't mind a little damage to the meat...

The calibre is incredibly versatile, and have an accuracy potential far beyond the capabilities of the person behind the trigger.
While the heavier bullets can be a tad short of breath, the .30-06 nearly duplicates the flat trajectory of a .300 Win Mag when we load the '06 with 165 grains Nosler Partition, and with far less recoil.

If I for some reason had to give up all my guns for one calibre, it would be either the .308 or a .30-06.

Oh by the way, if some of you guys over in the US wants a little more punch in your rifle, try out the Norma ammo, it's a hot on pair with the "light-magnum" loads you get from domestic manufacturers.




Hmm, gotta remind myself...diggers got white stars, Kiwis got Krasnji Isvestja...

That doesn't look like it translates into "red stars" to me.

Sorry mate, my russian is a tad rusty nowadays, too many years have passed since the iron curtain came tumbeling down.

Total mix-up of plural and singular, plus the general confusion over a language I never learned.
I believe Krasnjie Svesdji would be more like it...

Oh by the way, I've been told the Aussies are mostly metric, how's the situation on NZ?

Metric in everything but ***** length, that is still discussed in inches.

Eh i work in refrigeration / air conditioning, and we don't really use metric or imperial as a guide.
Copper pipe is measured in increments of an inch.. 1/8", 3/8", 1/2, 1/4 etc... PVC is all in metric though. And don't get me started on gas pressures.
We get taught in trade-school to use kilopascals, but our tradesmen only really know pounds/square inch. So we kind of have to learn both there too. Hahaha
It's great -.-

Well, we went all metric back in 1875 and have been ever since, but still plumbing is done based on inches, in construction they're still refering to 2x4 and 2x8, boats are meassured in feet, and a nautical mile is still 100 fathoms here.

Wonder how it's like in the UK.
