Does anyone know offhand which set of Talley bases fit the Interarms/Whitworth Express rifle? They have a dozen or so listed for the various Mauser configurations, but I'm inclined to think the bases for the Remington 798 are probably the correct choice? No info on the Talley website that I could see. I'll call them if I have to, but who wants to do that?

The Whitworth Mauser is basically a Yugo M48 Mauser and so is the Remington 798 and EZ to find, I used Leupold quick release mounts on my 375HH

Same screw hole pattern for your bases as the 1950's vintage FN Model 98 Mauser Commercial actions were ?

Thanks for the replies guys. I emailed Talley actually...they confirm that the Remington 798 bases will work. Thanks again!

Hi Luke. Just saw your message. I am in Dillingham, and have been since 2002. I took an elementary teaching gig here, taught here five years, and then got a job with Togiak National Wildlife Refuge as their education and outreach specialist. Recently I just got a promotion and now I'm the Visitor Services Manager. Prior to DLG I spent 6 years teaching for Lake and Pen in Nondalton.

Hi TT
I am glad you found some useful info in my posts. Hard cast WFN with GC will do the job fine. I trust Veral Smith (owner of LBT company) - I believe that he can provide you with some finest HC bullets. Many companies are coping his design. I can help you from here in developing max loads (40.000psi) just let me know which powder you are using (I use Quick Load software which turns to be very reliable).
