I'm thinking about buying a Mauser rifle...
Advertisements [?]
for target shooting and perhaps deer and hog hunting.

Does anyone have any experience with Mitchells Mausers? (Note: I have no interest in the collector value of the Mauser. I just want a weapon in good to excellent condition that's been checked out for safety.)

A friend recommended the 6.5x.55 Mauser as a good choice as with the reduced recoil it will be pleasant to shoot and the round has enough power to hunt any game that I would be interested in. I haven't found many of these for sale on line.

I'm looking for any advice on where to buy a good Mauser, a rough estimate of what one should cost and some advice on the best caliber.
