    450 in a mauser action

    i have an old 1918 v.chr. schilling 98 mauser action in really good shape.anyway a few years ago a mauser gunsmith in south carolina talked to me about building it into a .450 marlin.he said it would work perfectly and i intended to do it but never did.still it sounds intreging and he said the 450 would feed good out of the magazine with this setup.anyone do something like this?

    I had investigated doing a bolt gun in .450 and talked to E.R. Shaw about doing it on their MKVII platform. The price was decent and no big problems anticipated, but I finally decided that a BLR/.450 was a better choice for me. Not saying that would be so for anyone else, simply for my uses. I hope you undertake the build as I think it will make a very nice rifle. Good Luck!

    It seems that a lot of mausers have been converted to 45-70. I would think that a 450 would be as easy. What I have read is that they have a strong action and shoot well.

    450 ba

    I have been considering building a takedown rifle on a French MAS 36/51 action, one ofthe calibers I am considering is 450, would like to do interchangeable barrels, but need to watch pressure levels, already stripped a rifle for the action, and will do most, if not all ,of the work myself

    At one point Winchester built a bolt action 450M and Steyr still does.

    What are you looking for in a Bolt action 450M?

    Putting the 450M into a bolt brings a whole new level of performance. I have a custom pre-64 Win 70 and a Ruger 77 (tang safety) in 450M and three Siamese Mausers in 45-70. It is too bad the 450M came out after all the Siamese Mauser actions came back to the US, it might have really changed the 450M future.

    Performance wise I am able to push 350gr TSX's into 458 win mag territory with zero signs of over pressure in either - no flattened primers, or sticky extraction. A spitzer tip and the 2400fps velocities turn them into something very different.

    Steyr will make one of their Pro Hunters in 450M as a custom order - about $2500 and Brockman makes one too. GB had a Brockman listed for sale a few weeks ago for $1800 or so.

    Makes me wonder what a BLR/.450 might be able to do
