This round sports a 198 grain projectile with a full metal jacket, so it will prevent bore fouling in order to preserve your rifle’s accuracy. This round has got a brass casing with very uniform dimensions, although its Berdan primer more or less precludes it from handloading. Its primer is corrosive as well, so you’d be well advised to make good use of this cost-effective ammunition sooner rather than sitting on it for a rainy day.
The Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia used the 8mm Mauser (also known as the 7.92×57mm Mauser) for military service following the Second World War. The round saw extensive use during the Yugoslav Wars, although it has also been popular for sporting purposes throughout the Western world since its introduction in the early 20th century.
