    Default 8mm

    I need some help.
    I have a Mitchel mauser 8mm, I bought a couple boxes of rem 8mm factory loads. I was thinking about getting set up to reload and looked in a reloading manual for bullets. It appears that 8mm comes in .325 and .319. My question is has anyone shot factory loads out of their Mitchel mausers? and how do I go about checking the bore of my rifle? thanks.

    Never saw that before. Might be talking about differences in lands/bore.

    Factory loads are pathetic except for Norma. They are loaded to the potential of the 8x57.

    Your Mitchell Mauser is fine with any modern 8mm ammo.

    Thanks, I was hoping that was the case.
