    Hi guys!
    New member from Sweden. Have been hunting since childhood and are now 37 years.
    I hunt everything Sweden has to offer from moose to pigeons. Both rifle and shotgun hunting. Mostly wild boars these days but I grew up with mostly small game hunting ( hare hunting with dog).
    The population of boars are growing rapidly here in Sweden from being extinct. Now we shoot more then 100 000 boars/year.
    I am a keen handloader, and my latest project is to load ammo for my new Oberndorf Mauser 98 in 9x57. Should work fine for the boars with heavy bullets in low velocity.

    Välkommen ombord!

    Looking forward to hear from your hunting stories.
    Just a heads up. This forum is very persuasive and it won’t be long before your hunting dreams will head south.

    I put a Leupold 2-7x33 with German No. 1 reticle on it. Can't use a modern sight on a classic gun, even if I was tempted. Hope you understand my English even if the grammar and spelling isn' t perfect. :)

    Welcome to AH
    Great rifle with good grains in the wood
    The grains run perfectly through the grip this is important
    That will be an excellent caliber for boars, and a good bush hunt in South Africa

    I bought it with this three position safety, but it’s not original. I got the original flag safety with the gun.

    There was a smal crack in the grip behind the tang when i bought the rifle. The mecanism is bedded to the stock, but i thought the tang was a bit in contact with the wood backwards, so I took away a small amount of wood backwards an glued the crack. I will check this crack from time to time.
