8x57mm JS Mauser Ammo

8x57mm JS Mauser ammunition is a variant of the 8mm Mauser that fires a .323" bullet with a spitzer point. This contrasts with the original 8x57mm, which fires a .318" bullet.

8x57mm JS cartridges fire a relatively heavy 180 or 200 grain bullet at a muzzle velocity of around 2,500 feet per second.

Sellier & Bellot produces a soft point load in this caliber that is suitable for deer hunting. Most often here in the U.S., that's what shooters are looking for - a good 8x57mm JS hunting round so that's what we work to offer in-stock and for sale most frequently here at Widener's.

    Owners of 8mm Mauser rifles will appreciate the accuracy and power of this hunting ammunition from Winchester's Super-X series. These cartridges are great for taking large game without damaging the meat you'll put in the freezer or on the table later.

    Each cartridge in this 20-round box propels a heavy 170-grain soft point bullet to a muzzle velocity of 2,360 feet per second. The strong penetration afforded by this combination results in excellent performance against boar, elk, and other tougher targets.

    Winchester ammo is made in Oxford, Mississippi using reloadable brass cases and non-corrosive Boxer primers.
