7mm rem mag m18
Been looking at a mauser m18 7mm rm to replace the 300 Wm that I literally never shot ,never even mounted a scope on it. (Due to me being laid up since March and needed cash) I'm seeing light at the end of the tunnel and thinking that the 7 would do everything as well if not better at 500 yds + Any opinions on the m18 7mm aside from the fact it has a pressed in barrel?

It has a barrel made from the same steel on the same hammer forge machinery as a 6k blaser.

Will take you 10k plus rounds to shoot the barrel out.

My last concern would be a press fit barrel.

Would a new rifle and scope save you cash? Doesn`t you have anything to hunt with now?

I own a M-18 in .308 Winchester and it is one of the most consistent rifles I own. It will shoot dime sized groups with two different brands of ammo so I haven't bothered work up a load for it. If only they would make it in 7x57, I'd own one right now.

May I ask if all the rifles in the Mauser line-up are controlled feed?
https://www.mauser.com/en/
Is that important to you Crazy 8 ?

Only the 98 is control round feed and costs $10k.

M18 is excellent gun for the $$$.

These are all brands owned by same holding company

Blaser
Sauer
Mauser

All three and produced in same factory

Rigby is owned by same owners and produces finished guns using German build actions and barrels in the UK

SIG is completely us based and has no production relations to the Germans but same ownership

Blaser is premier brand
Sauer is traditional bolt operation with multi barrel system
Mauser is entry level except m98 which also forms barrel action foundations for rigby
