    Default 8mm

    Sorry dont know if this is the right spot to post this. I got this 8mm ammo of gunbroker for a steal. Its supposedly made in russian/us using old surplus casing and new powder. Just wondering if anyone here has any input or experience with this ammo. Thanks

    Interesting. Your closeup picture of the Polish 7,9 shows the original three-stab primer crimps still in place, but the description on GB says "new 2017" non-corrosive have replaced the old ones. Did you buy one of these 500 rd. lots? If so, could you show some additional pictures of the head stamps? Thanks, JH

    there is a company in russia currently tearing down old 8mm, repriming them and building the rounds ventura???? something like that. I would treat it as reloaded ammo, watch out for squibs and mis/hang fires, not that any have been reported!!!!!!!!!

    I did buy a 500 round case of this stuff. I only paid 170 plus shipping and that is dirt cheap for 8mm.

    IMO, the cartridge shown has not been reworked. Are all 500 Polish? If not, could you please show other examples? The dot matrix number on the cartridge case is common on EU surplus ammunition. I have thousands of the Polish 7,9, and some lots are starting to develop hang-fires though the cartridges look as new. Thanks, JH

    I haven't looked through all of the rounds but the majority of the lot all have the same markings. I have not fired any yet but do you think it will be ok to use on my g43?
