Description
 
Few cartridges, in the history of modern firearms, have influenced our shooting world as much as the 7x57mm Mauser. Designed by Peter Paul Mauser in 1892 to serve in the military, the 7x57 Mauser showed the American soldiers what a cartridge should be on the slopes of Cuba’s San Juan Hill, and inspired the development of our own revered .30-’06 Springfield. In the hunting world, it made an immediate transition—as so many military cartridges have—and to this day remains a favorite among the African hunters. In its British guise the 7x57mm Mauser was known as the .275 Rigby, and in the hands of some talented hunters like W.D.M. Bell and Col. Jim Corbett, the cartridge would go on to inspire the world in the classic hunting tales like “Wanderings of an Elephant Hunter” and “The Man-Eaters of Kumaon.”

Here in the States, it never really had the following that it did across the British Empire, though there have been some loyal fans. Renowned gun writer John Wooters praised it as one of his favorite deer cartridges, and Finn Aagaard brought one with him from Kenya to Texas; he felt he could take any animal in North America with it. Even Jack O’Connor—the huge champion of the .270 Winchester—recognized the merits of the 7x57, outfitting his wife with a rifle so chambered for their safaris across Africa. At any rate, the 7x57 Mauser makes a good all-around choice for just about any hunting, shy of the great bears of Alaska and western Canada, or the African heavyweights. With a good 160- or 175-grain bullet, elk, moose, lesser bears and even the bigger antelope of the Dark Continent can easily be handled, at a much lesser recoil level that the 7mm magnums.

Each box contains 25 once fired brass shell casings. Headstamps are mixed. This is unprocessed brass sourced from commercial shooting ranges. The casings have been washed and polished, but not resized and may still contain the spent primer. It is recommended that all brass be inspected prior to being reloaded and fired.
