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!!
