Re: 8x57 article now live
Great information. Thanks for publishing this. I'm a fan of both 8X57 and 8-06 and have several M98 based rifles. The 200 gr HotCores and Partitions are my bullets of choice. I do the load work up with the cheaper Speers and the fine tune seating depth with the Partitions for hunting.

Am quite a fan of the 8mm-06 myself. That's next on the list. Thanks Walt, glad you enjoyed the article.

I have enjoyed reading you stuff for some time now. Today I found the 8mm Mauser article and immediately read it. I am a big fan of the 8x57. I have a old butchered 98a, small ring that I have turned into a fine shooter/hunter.
Thanks for you efforts, they are appreciated.

This is a Great article about the 8x57 Mauser! I have 2 VZ24's one sporterized and one that will stay in issued condition. Both are shooters. I really like the 8mm Mauser for it's history and it's fun to shoot factor. Thank you for this great write up and all the info. on reloading for it.
Keep up the good work!

Thanks Rupe, glad you enjoyed it. My next book has accurizing and maintenance procedures for your rifles if you ever get the inclination to delve a bit further into these areas.
