    Was at the Clark County gunshow at the fairgrounds on Sunday and found an Interarms mini Mauser in 223 Rem. Painted an ugly green, I got it for a very fair price. I have a set of low Warne Quick Detach Rings coming in the mail and a Leupold 4x with fine tapered crosshairs waiting to mount. I'll be sighting it in with 55 grain hollow points, my preferred coyote medicine. Weight with the scope is 6 lbs, 3 ounces. The rings and bases will add a bit more.

    I checked the twist rate and it looks like 1/12 so I'm loading up some 40 grain hollow points to sight in. I'll report back.

    Well, I figured it was for camouflage. When I saw the rifle in the dealers rack, it looked like a barreled action just hanging in the air :)
