8mm Mauser Ammo
7.92x57mm or 8mm Mauser ammo was one of the most widely used military cartridges of the early 20th century. It was used by both sides in World War II, with the German Wehrmacht on the Axis side and the British, Polish, and Chinese armies on the Allied side fielding weapons chambered for it. Today, you'll find it for sale for American civilian shooters where the cartridge is still popular for more peaceful purposes such as hunting. The round performs well against deer, bear, and boar alike.
8mm Mauser loads tend to feature a heavy bullet in the 180-200 grain range fired at a muzzle velocity of around 2,700 feet per second.
Hunters looking for a high performance load in this caliber should check out Federal's Vital-Shok series as well as soft points from Prvi Partizan and Sellier & Bellot. You'll also find cheap surplus rounds in-stock in bulk quantities here at Widener's as they become available.

Following the Second World War, the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia began to use the 8mm Mauser (AKA 7.92×57mm Mauser) cartridge for military service. They designated the variant of the round that their regular infantry used the M49. Much of this was spent up during the Yugoslav Wars of the 1990s, but quite a bit of it still remains. We’re very pleased to be able to offer whole cases of it to you.
This cartridge is crowned with a 198 grain projectile, a heavier bullet for its caliber. The bullet’s full metal jacket will keep your classic rifle’s bore in better condition over the course of your range session, although this round’s corrosive Berdan primer will necessitate that you take extra care cleaning after the fact. These rounds’ primer pockets were sealed to safeguard their propellant against moisture infiltration, and their brass casings show exceptionally little tarnishing given how long they’ve been locked up in storage. It’s a great deal on an authentic 8mm Mauser experience, shipped fast and right to your door!
