View Full Version : duplicate load for 8mm mauser
02-01-2007, 03:53 PM
Looking for a source to duplicate a 8mm load for a yugo mauser was wondering just weight these rifles want to shoot, as the loads I have found are really lightweight uo to heavyweight bullets. Also wondering what bullet weight the zrak scope is calibrated to?

Not sure on the Yugo load specifically, if there was one, but the German WW2 load for the 8mm was a 196grain FMJ running along at around 2500-2600 FPS. I use the Hornady 195 grain bullet with 47gr of IMR4064 to approximate it. Good accurate load. Not sure on the bullet weight for the zrak scope but it was likely 196gr.
