I did some reading up on your delema in my hornady 9th edition..the original 8mm mauser was chambered with a bullet diameter 0f .318" In 1905 it was changed to a bore diameter of .323" I`m not a mauser expert but if it were me I`d take it to a gunsmith and see what bore diameter your rifle has..

I'll be on the lookout for that issue, as I have an 8mm Mauser.
Mine is a 1935 Turkish, so I think I am safe.
I will "mike" up a round .322"

roundnose ammo

I also have a Mitchell's M-48, and have used Remington, Federal, and handloads with Hornady 170 grn RN bullets with no problems.
I have always found my mausers to perform better when operated briskly as opposed to gently working the action. Good Luck!!

try spitzers, Remington, Federal, and Hornady all load spitzer type bullets. :cool:
As well as Prvi Partizan, Sellior & Bellot, & HSM if you can find it!:rolleyes:
