    M12 Mauser, who has one?

    Bought an M12 Mauser in .308 last week, work has been getting in the way, but finally got it down to the range today to start development, 150 Speer Hotcor, 155 Seirra TMK and 130 Speer Hp all went sub MOA straight off, didn't have enough time to play with the open sights, but that's coming!.

    First impressions are, what a neat rifle to handle and shoot! trigger and fit spot on, clearly not fussy about ammo, and giving up useful velocity. It's a solid rifle, but carries so well it hides it. Funny as to get twin ejector marks on one load that might have been a bit warm.......

    So how many people on here have (or did) M12's and how's it working out?

    T3’s in 7mm08 are soooo 2010. In Ponsonby/Herne Bay and Westmere, 6.5 Creedmore is the fashion statement.

    Yep I got a M12 impact in 308 was that happy with it I got a M12 Max as well in 22-250 neat rifles , triggers , accuracy about as good as it gets , they weigh a bit more but the performance out weighs that. also found both models leave slight ejector marks on the cases .

    Year that’s what I thought @northdude I’ll see if it’s still there when I get back from my no trip.
