    I just bought a mint 1895 Chilean Mauser for $300 on Gunbroker and would like some help on developing some light target loads for it.
    I'm only going to use it for 100-200yd targets and want to keep it LOW pressure, I realize these aren't the strongest actions.
    What bullets, powders are best for this? is there a particular bullet these work best with?

    I reload for 7X57 but for Large ring commercial 98 mausers. Because you are using a low pressure action my reloads would do you no good. Now if you want to talk about the catridge - I am all up for that - it is my primrary hunting caliber. It has repalced teh 30-06 for me on deer.
