Thankyou for the information.
I found some information on the german ww2 8mm 196gr ball and it was listed at 2493fps;I wonder why the yugo would be so much slower.the german was out of a 23.something barrel can't remember now but guess it was a k98.

That information listed listed seems really low. I recall the muzzle velocity being 2400-2500 fps for the Yugo ammo. I could be wrong, though.
