what's happening to Shotgun News? i've been thinking about building a custom mauser. there used to be mauser 98 actions in shotgun news all the time for under $100. what happened to them? and can i build a decent mauser sporter for...say $350? i have a mauser now that i could use. but i'd like to keep that one the military surplus way that it is. who makes good inexpensive barrels? what caliber should i use? i cant decide if i want to build it as a target/varmint gun (probably go with 22-250) or a deer/big game rifle (probably be 30-06, 308, 35 whelen.) will the 98 action accept a cartridge like a 460 s&w? or would i have to do the magnum modification to the bolt face? would the 460 perform well in a rifle barrel? if so what would be a good way to go about getting a 460 barrel? could i modify some kind of 45 caliber barrel or would i have to have it custom made? the 460 questions are more just out of curiosity than any thing. i dont really see that as being easily done or the route that i will be taking on my custom mauser if i do actually build it. but if its feasible maybe somewhere down the road i'll attempt it. are adams & bennet barrels any good? they are very cheap. are they built that cheap?
