I think I need a 8mm, maybe?
« on: August 18, 2019, 03:05:52 PM »
8mm Remington Magnum.
17,204,223,243/6mm, and 45/70

I have nothing in-between .

30 calibers, 270's, and the current hot shot 6.5's are boring to me for what ever reason.

I think I NEED a larger game caliber.

Boy and his wife have most every thing up to 458.

BUT no 8mm.

Humm sounds like I NEED to fill that hole.

What about a 8mm Remington Magnum?

I looked at brass and it is out of sight.

But it looks like 7mm mag or 375 H&H brass is more in line and not to hard to rework.

I have a 7mm mouser action in a stock,I could get for the asking and do a barrel. The more I reed the more I feel the need for a 8mm Remington Magnum.

Any real time experience or first hand knowledge?

Anything that can send a 220gr bullet out the end of a 24" barrel at over 3500 fps has my attention for sure.

I have absolutely no experience with the 8 mm, but I think you do NEED it.  So, I vote in favor of you getting one.

Yep you need one! Maybe even 2 one for heavy brush, a 18" barrel and a 26 " for the long stuff.

 When I was a kid Dad used to hunt with an 8 mm Mauser.

Before I was born my Dad hunted people carrying 8 mm Mausers.
