PORTUGUESE MODEL 1904 /6,5 X 58

Recommended Posts

Been enjoying my ''as new''   port.6,5x58mm   rifle......it took some  time and effort to find a set of custom  C-H Dies for it.  Back woods store in Saskatchewan Canada was glad to'' get  rid''  of  them.

I reform   .30-06 and 270 win. cases which took a bit of trial and error...... settled on 140 grain Hornadys. shoots as well as I can hold.   Its now  114 years old.

Interesting rifle - I'd never heard of it until now...looks like a standard Mauser action with the unique Portuguese chambering.  

How did you come to select this particular rifle?

Cheers,

Astro

it more or less selected ME   LOL.

older gentleman said it was ''brought to Kanada''  by his father ...he had NO USE for it on his liveaboard boat.....I offered to do him a favor and take it off his hands.......

I have since done several favors in return.......kind of felt a little guilty of ''doing him the favor''.

they are not common in SOUTH AFRICA and are known to perform well on plains game.
