Scored one today for 160 OTD with a box of corelokt hunting cartridges to go with it. Good deal? Numbers match, but the receiver has been scrubbed. Had a sling and cleaning rod as well. Bore looks pretty nice to boot.

Sounds like a good deal. I would hand load light for it - small ring action not to mention pretty old. Got a buddy that shoots one in local vintage matches - very accurate.

There has been a lot of debate on this - unlikely you would have catastrophic failure but the 7 mm mauser cartridge for which it was designed operates at a lower pressure level. Locking lug setback could occur over time. I would hand load 15 to 20% below standard 308 loads. Ultimately your decision.
