I just noticed that Sierra makes a 200 grain 8mm Match King. It has a ballistics coefficient of about 0.500.

Now imagine loading that one up in the 8mm Mauser? Are you listening mlammers?

There's the bullet to bring new zing to the 8mm Mauser. I'm so excited that I'm going

I might have to take a look at that. How do you think it would work in a 20 inch barrel?

The stats on the Norma ammo showed a 196 grain bullet only dropping 18 inches at 300 meters with a muzzle velocity of I think 2550 FPS. If the velocity can stay close to that, like 2500 fps with a 20 inch barrel, that would be a sweet long range round.
