Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

I'll be glad to help out.
I wish I could use the cheek piece you bought but being left handed,I cannot.
These are custom made. You could probably have one made for your left side.

Very nice shooting! I sold my "Faux" M/41B about a year ago, and kicked myself until I found another one recently. Another Swede aficionado had built one from an M96 with a very good bore. He used the Accumounts mount and also put a Weaver K4 scope on it. I had a spare AJACK scope, so I switched out the Weaver for the AJACK.

Unfortunately, my range only goes out to 225 yards, so I can't really test this rifle. When the weather cools some, I'll take it to my brothers, where I can try it out to 1000 yards.
What load were you using?
Thanks, Ernest.

I used 34.5 grs of IMR 4064 and a 140 gr Nosler Custom Competition. Same load that I was using in my Ljungman.

Keep us informed as to your long range results.

Thanks! I'm just getting ready to do some reloads and I'm going to give that a try.

I made another trip to Sac Valley earlier this week for some 200 and 300 yard shooting. I changed my 6.5x55 load slightly and got a somewhat better result.

The shot down at 5 o'clock was a pulled shot. I knew it was off and where it it was going to hit before looking at the target. For reasons not entirely clear to me, the group shifted about 1/2 MOA to the left with the new load.

@ 300 yards, group size 2.4" (not including the pulled shot)

I adjusted the scope and later in the day, shot this group, also at 300 yards. By then the wind had picked up and there was a breeze from left-to-right. I think that accounts for some of the horizontal dispersion. The last two shots are the ones just off the reactive target.

@ 300 yards, group size 2.7"

You shooting off of a rest or on your belly off the bag?

Off the bench, using a Bulls Bag on top of an old wooden Yugo ammo box.

Excellent shooting, it's no doubt the Swedish Mauser is a top notch shooter!

Thanks, Danny! I've been very happy with this Swedish Mauser.
