Sellier & Bellot - Soft Point - 196 Grain 8mm Mauser Ammo - 20 Rounds


Germany's first 8mm Mauser was adopted in 1888 during the age of discovery of smaller caliber, smokeless powder. However, it was quickly improved to a spitzer, or pointed bullet, and higher pressure that replaced the M88 by 1905. The 7.92x57mm Mauser became one of the most prolific military calibers in the world throughout Europe, China and Africa. It was perhaps the only rifle round to serve on both sides of World War II and continued service briefly after the war until ultimately replaced by either NATO or Warsaw Pact doctrines, depending on the location and politics of the region. This 8mm mauswer ammo is loaded with a soft point 196 grain bullet by Sellier & Bellot and brings a muzzle velocity of 2600 feet per second with over 2900 foot pounds of energy. For the numerous surplus rifles and sporters in this caliber, this round is ideal for hunting deer or any similar sized game.

Sellier & Bellot has a long history of munition components and munitions, dating to the 1820s Bohemia. Known in the US as a quality producer, S&B is also well known for being a producer of less common calibers for both completed cases as well as providing reloadable cases for handloaders to produce their own custom cartridges of this time-tested caliber.
