I know wtih Garands, most people will say shoot the surplus ammo and NOT to shoot the newer ammunition because it is not loaded to mil specs or too hot.

What about ammo for the Mauser?
Can you purchase any new 8mm factory ammo?

Also, when searching for ammo, does any actually list it as 7.92x57mm , 7.92x57JS or just 8mm?
Finally, when searching do you search for any 8mm ammo?

I got 3 lots like they when they had it

Damn....

I would have gotten more, but shipping is expensive. Would have been easier if I got crates too

Most the good ammo and gun places seem to be in Ohio.


But I can get $40 used Glock mags and $30 NIW AR mags here

Those round nose bullets in general don't feed well in guns designed for military profile ammo.

At about .05rnd, stock any year Turk except 1947 (ends of 1400rnd crates are marked). May have a few dud primers, so what.
At .10rnd, stock either Romy or Yugo. Minor pref for the heavier and prettier Yugo if you find both.

If you hunt, the Remington Corelokts are a bit short so you need to be careful working the bolt for them to feed.

I've got a few cases of this, as does one of my buddies, and it shoots well. Granted I got it when it was $29/case, but it's still good ammo...

I've fired Core-Loks in my 98K and my '03 Springfield with no trouble (so far) . I occasionally hunt with my '03 but the damn thing gets heavy fast!

possibly stupid question.
is ammo listed as 7.92x57 8mm and 8x57 all the same dimensions and the correct ammo for a yugo M48?
that's how I'm understanding things from this thread and other sites, just want to be positive

a more specific question. Anyone have experience with 1950's Ecuador ammo?
