It seems that the 7x57mm Mauser cartridge has reached the end of the road after 121 years. In the USA the similar 7mm-08 Rem has ousted the 7x57mm Mauser because it is loaded to better ballistics. All the German-speaking companies such as Blaser, Mannlicher, Mauser, Sauer and Steyr have already dropped it from their product line-ups in favor of the 7x64mm Brenneke. The Czech CZ company has now also done so. Presently there is no major riflemaker in the world that offers the old African stalwart any longer.
