Sellier & Bellot - Full Metal Jacket - 196 Grain 8mm Mauser Ammo - 20 Rounds
The backbone of the German army from 1905 through 1945 as well as numerous other nations through to today, the 8mm Mauser (7.92x57) has proven performance and dependability characteristics that are confirmed by multiple sources. Originally among the revolutionary, small bore, smokeless powder cartridges of the late 1800’s, the modern 8mm was given an upgrade with its pointed bullet in 1905 which led to a global change on its own (the .30-06 did the same the following year). In addition to being used for military applications, it is also a popular sport hunting round as well. The 196 grain, full metal jacketed round by Sellier & Bellot has a muzzle velocity of 2588 feet per second with 2848 foot pounds of energy. It is perfect for range training and competitive match shooting.
New production, non-corrosive, reloadable fmj rounds for 8mm is not always easy to find, but always a welcome find for custom loaders of this caliber. S&B has been in the ammo making business since the 1820’s and is certainly no stranger to the 8mm Mauser round, having made it for Czech military use since the 1920’s and later under German occupation. Cases are boxer primed for further value.
