    Thanks ! I'm not sure what to expect from an 8mm round. It's a big heavy bullet.

    My uncle uses an 8mm for all his deer hunting and loves it. Good ammo is hard to find and expensive though. I load for him for less than half what factory hunting rounds cost.

    Cool rifle. That's a lot of barrel! The spiral fluting looks good.

    I don't recognize the action. What is it based upon? Nice looking rifle!
    OH....the 8mm Mauser round is a very powerful cartridge! The original Mauser rifles had a 300 meter zero. They were expected to reach WAY out there!
