Re: unusual mauser

This caliber is similar to our own .32-40, is the
rifle a single shot?

Re: unusual mauser

It was primarly a target round, used by germans for for offhand shooting. RWS makes ammo $$$ for it 151 grain bullet at 1800fps. It is a rimmed case, so lots of single, double and drillings used it.
