The Modern-Day Mauser:

When OutDoor Sports offered to send me down this ‘modernʼ Mauser several months back to do some pest control and hunting with, I jumped at the chance.


I have long had a keen interest in military Mausers, so I was very keen to see how the modern offerings from the company stacked up against the selection of new sporting rifles available here in New Zealand.

The rifle that got sent down was the Cerakote Tungsten M18 chambered in 6.5 Creedmoor. I had only used the 6.5 Creedmoor as a target cartridge previously, so I was keen to see how it went on the goats, pigs and fallow deer that run around the back blocks of Taranaki and Whanganui.
