However I think in terms of 'used in pretty intense wars 100 years later' the Mosin is still representing the hardest.

That is entirly dependent on how you define in use.

The Mauser 98 system is the base for most modern bolt action rifles. The Remington 700 is technically a version of the Mauser 98 as are many other rifles. Civillian and for military applications. There are even militaries who still have the K98k in its inventory. This includes the German armed forces.

The big advantage of original or like original layout Mosins is the simple fact that the cartidge they use is still in mass production and easily available. Which is not true for 7,92x57 and .303.

Make sure rims of the top cartridge are ahead of the rim of the cartridge below it.

Ever use a Krag? Better than any of the few Enfields I have handled. Tbf, the Enfields were in rougher shape.

allthough I would really like to see the faces of the people form the MoD and military if a company would pitch this with a demonstration nowadays.
