    I am having a Turkish Mauser rebarreled to a 6.5x55. I like to shoot target . I was interested in knowing what kind of accuracy you get from your 96's? I understand mine is in a turkish mauser action and is not directly comparable to a 96, but I would like to know what I can expect.

    I don't reload, so I have to buy my ammo. What are you shooting?

    6.5 is a very accurate round- my swede doesnt care what i feed it , it shoots very well with anything, and out of all the swedes ive looked at mines got the worst barrel of any of them.

    Why not just buy a Swedish Mauser outright? Not that there's anything wrong with the Turkish models. Reason is, the Swedes built theirs to tighter tolerances, and were designed to work with the 6.5 round. I have a Turkish Mauser that I had rechambered for .338-06 last year. It was an expensive move, but I think it was worth it. For the cost of having yours rebarreled, the bolt and follower modified, and all of the other necessary work, you will have spent 3 times the price of a Swedish Mauser. And, once you get you a Swede, you'll wonder how you got along without one!! My best Swede is 101 years old, and it shoots better than some of my new rifles. I can't tell you what kind of accuracy to expect from the rechambered Turkish Mauser, but I can tell you that a M96 will group 1" to 1-1/2" at 100 yards, once you get used to the sights. Whatever you decide to do, good luck, and keep us posted on your progress.
