The only 98 mausers Ive ever known of were chambered in 7x57 or 8x57 but that cartridge sure looks like a .30-06 Springfield.

I would try to get my hands on a few similar cartridges and try to chamber them but never ever try to fire them. Heres another idea you might wanna try, get a caliper (preferably digital) and measure the inside of the bore so that you can know exactly what caliber it is..that way you can get a better idea of what its chambered for.

You may have allready done this but on one of my old Mausers you had to take the action out of the stock because the cal. was stamped on the bottom of the barrel. \:o Have you compared the bullet to an 8x57 ?
I'd cast it if I was uncertian. Excellent rifle,someone really knew what they were doing on that one.
Most military 98's that I have seen have stepped barrels. Although a gunsmith can remove the steps with a lathe, this barrel does not appear to have steps, thus suggesting that it is a sporter barrel. And, if it is, the caliber would normally be stamped somewhere on the barrel, possibly even under the wood as Tikka suggests.
