Had a gunsmith friend build one for me over thirty years ago, using a Santa-Barbara Mauser action and a Douglas barrel. Cast the bullets, loaded my own also. Used it on wild pigs in the Savannah, GA area while living there. One-shot stops. Works equally well on deer.
Now the recoil is too much for me. Fun while it lasted.
I had it rebarreled with a Shaw barrel. I tried to get by on the cheap by using the original stock. I think that was a mistake.
The rifle worked fine and was accurate but kicked like a mule. I think that metal buttplate combined with the relatively short stock was mainly responsible for the recoil.
Ended up trading it off.
