anyone know a good place to go buy 8mm mauser cheap?
I believe J&G has 8mm at $56.00 for a 1,000rnds.
$100 for turkish for 1400 rds..
$45 for 750 rds. of greek, and it's the proper weight bullet for yugo or german mauser.
$30 for 380 rds romanian (for turkish mausers) from www.aimsurplus.com
J&G has 700 rds. of turkish for $30.
As a warning some of that Turkish 8mm runs hot. The nickel/silver(?) jacketed bullets are the hot rounds and are made for use in MG's. Still safe to run through your mauser though it will just kick a little more than the standard FMJ round.
I sell it would have to check on the price tho
turkish rounds are "hot" they will fuck up an MG or a G43, use only in a k98
Runs good in the MG-42, 10,000rnds and not a problem yet. Although some ammo fails to fire, but oh well.
my buddy who has a class III says turk surplus is a good way to fuck a good MG 42 or 34. and G43s wont eat turk unless you go single shot. Yugo is where its at!
9.99 for 10 rounds of the actual "vintage" ammo
Cheaper Than Dirt (WWW.cheaperthandirt.com) has it too:
The caveat I heard about the Turkish ammo is that German/Yugo Mausers are set up for a different bullet weight so you may have to adjust your sights. I bought 500 rounds on stripper clips in blue bandoleers. Mine shoots great and came on target quickly in my Yugo M-48.
(BTW, hold tight, the gun has a healthy kick)
