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.
